Before I start again I'm sorry if this is posted else were, i've looked as well as I could, but there are a zillion posts.
I'm a female and I like the tie at chest level. Also, I like the lighter Gi's, I hate the 'ruffle' collar around my neck, but I managed to find a Gi off the BudoStuff website, the 'summer' gi. I bought one and I love it, but going as much as I do it's already really warn. (there's some kinda staining on it that makes it look dirty all the time too, no luck on removing it). I love the tie at chest level, but I can't seem to find anyone else that sells them. I looked at Iwata and I can't for the life of me figure out there website. I'm a bit broke and $137 plus shipping is a bit much. Thanks everyone again I need all the help I can find.
