Jacket embroidery: kanji AND latin/roman characters at the same time?

Hello everyone,

Has anyone ever seen, or knows of, a sleeve embroidered with both kanji and latin/roman characters, say with one above the other?

As much as I enjoy having a gi embroidered with my name in kanji, here in North America I am wondering how practical it is to have only kanji that very few can read. Of course no embroidery at all is an option.

At the same time I have grown attached to the kanji, as it is tradition in my dojo to receive as a gift from sensei one's name in not just kanji, but characters chosen to reflect one's personality; a very personal gift.

Opinions and comments welcomed.
