Alright, stupid question here: what's the deal with those HCK
patches? Are they permanent and sewn right into the gi itself? Or, are they removable?
There have been two HCK gi's on eBay recently, and the photos for both showed the gi's had those bold patches on them. (I sent the seller an email about the patches question, but I've not heard back from him)
Do you happen to have the unbleached gi, or the white one? The link for the gi pant (separates), which does state that they have doubled knees, offers only white or blue? Do you happen to know if their unbleached gi pants have doubled knees?
Thanks for your time,
I received the following from Howard Liu of Howard Combat Kimonos
The pants do not come with patches. All pants, from the unbleached, the white, and blue are made of 7 X 7 denim twill, and have full padding from the top of the thigh to the end of the cuffs. The patches on the pants shown on the website is just for display purposes only. Patches are sold separately for $10/set of 2.
