student gi's

I'm looking into a new wholesale source for student gi's. Basically good quality single weave judo gi's at a reasonable price. Currently we charge $50 per gi, so something solid at ~$40-50 per gi would be nice. I'm looking at Hsu and Mizuno, and perhaps others.

Any recommendations of gi's or wholesale sources would be welcome. Thanks.

Re: student gi's

My judo club uses HSU. Our instructor gets an amazing deal. I think I paid something like $30-$35 for a size 5 single weave. That's shipping included! Have had it for a year and a half and it still looks great. Kid's Gi's are in the mid $20 range. My son's size one was someting like $26 after shipping.

Re: student gi's

My sensei also uses kiyota company for our orders.
They have pretty much everything you need there.

We've had some shipping problems with them occaisionally but they have been few and far between.
