Kent, I order mine from Asian World of Martial Arts, ( and I haven't had shrinkage issues with mine. I order the ProForce ones, and they're pretty inexpensive, and have shockingly held up quite well over the last year, especially since mine get thrown in the dryer with no regard to care. I do own 6 of them though, so even when I was training 5 days a week, each gi only got washed about once a week. Most of the guys in my dojo wear the Mugen Karate gi, but I really dislike the drawstring only on the pants. The ProForce ones I buy have an elastic waist with a drawstring. I have one of the Mugen tops, and I like it well enough, but the ties are thick, so it's hard to get a good knot to keep them closed well, although it hasn't shrunk much at all.

i have been trying to find some replacement gi for the bujin ones. i will try the ProForce ones to see if that would work. Karate middle-weight?
