I would suggest that you take a careful look around the dojo. You might also have a chat with a senior student of your instructor.
Maybe it's not an issue. Maybe it is. Just take a moment to examine the situation carefully to see if there are other issues involved here that may take precedence over just how you "feel" as a retail consumer.
If, once you've done, you're sure it's not a problem, and you're not up for sewing, the gear from e-bogu really does offer good value for what you pay.
Very wise post this one.
While I'm personally always up for saving a buck, there is much more to martial arts training then being a "retail customer".
