Personally, I prefer drawstring ties to elastic.

But if someone is removing the drawstring from their dogi zubon, it seems to me that the spare drawstring would make quite a few modesty-ties for dogi jackets, with a little more style conformity that a shoestring.

Just a thought....
Yeah, that's what I've done. I cut up old gi pants for knee patches and use the drawstring for modesty ties.

What I like to do for knees is sew a patch that goes all the way from above the knee to the ankle, on new pants already. Except for my Matsuru pants that have double material on the front of the pant legs anyway. Matsuru is the best.
