Anyone have any advice on sizing of a Gi to take into account shinkage?
I have purchased gi's from Iwata, Tozando, e-Budo and Bujin. Each shrank at least 1 size and some 1.5 to 2 sizes. Now before you post let me tell you I always wash them in cold and hang them to dry. But they still shrink. Personally I hate the 'unknown' factor of getting a gi that fits.
I have also notice that sometimes a gi/model by a manufacturer shrinks differently even when I get the same size (of course there is a year between when I order).
