Re: Fair Price on Judo Gis

The fabrics cannot be compared. Karate gi are made from a basic cotton canvas any mill can make.
Judo gi fabric requires special fabric mills to produce the distinctive double and triple weave patterns, most gis using at least two different fabrics, and at least 90% of these mills are in Pakistan so no matter where the judo gi is made the fabric all has to be sourced from the same place.
