Hello:

I was talking with a martial arts uniform company in the midwest who dealt in extremely large uniforms. Unfortunately they did not have any uniform sufficently large and this was their specialty.

Anybody familiar with any company who does karate uniforms in the United States (or elsewhere) for meaningfully larger sizes?

Please advise/PM me, if you prefer...



Jeff (Vexed...)

Kamikaze goes up to size 9 for some of their gis. I believe they are large enough for someone 6'9.

As people who know me on this forum are already aware, I swear by Satori gi's. Just google Satori, their in Canada.

They do made to measure and are exceptional quality. Best I've ever owned and the service was second to none.

Drop them an e-mail or give them a call.

Hello

Thank you. Unfortunately height is not this gentleman's issue, would it were ~relatively~ so simple. No unfortunately his weight, and assorted lower body measurements put him well outside of a size 9.

His upper body (though also meaningfully heavy) is relatively normal sizes; neck to waist, sleeve lengths, etc. Hopefully keeping this thread alive/lively other company names for large karate gi will come to the surface...

Regardless thank you for your helpful input,this search continues...

Jeff

Hello John L:



It has been a long while since I've had this priveledge, good to hear your thoughts, thank you for the recommendation!

As I said previously to medulant, unfortunately the individuals measurements and weight are ~meaningful~. I almost as stated previously had a match in a midwest manufacturer who does large sizes and so forth but after gathering the necessary information even their largest uniforms were inches too small. Modifying/tailoring any uniform would be obscenely expensive. Three months, six months, we are hopeful he'll easily fit comfortably. Now he's literally just outside their specifications...

We will try Satori and see what results (wondering if the person on the other end of the phone will somehow try and ~beat him~ with said phone, in place of the ~shinai~ & sticks of zen & buddhist mythos!

Again my thanks for your help, lets hope if not Satori, others names will come about...

Jeff

Ronin,
This store manufactures oversize gi. I have had one of their uniforms and was very happy with it.
The man who owns the company is a highly ranked guy under oyaya and has produced uniforms for his crew. His has been in the business for a long time. His uniforms have more X's than a porn convention.

Hello Oldman



I thank you on this gentlemans behalf. I have had good dealings with www.Odyssey.com in the "past", and will gladly recommend them in future.

Unfortunately, this student's measurements are outside of their largest 12X uniform ... in very short time all hope, but currently not just yet ... Hopefully keeping this thread active will remind someone of a company they had forgotten who does X-large uniforms.... and we'll be able to find him one soon.

Jeff

Hey Ronin

Have you spoken with Satori (they have a 1-800 #) I'd be interested in what they said.

Hello John:

I emailed www.Satori-gi.com this morning, and I too am eager to hear back. I'll give them a call hopefully later this afternoon... they look like a good candidate.

Heaven knows they come with ~good endorsements~ (sic. John L.) I will keep you apprised. Any other members think of additional companies who offer extremely large gi?

Sincere thanks,
Jeff

I know one of your replies said that www.oddessy.com's size 12 isn't big enough - I just wanted to see if you read the part about "bigger sizes available on request" - I know it says up to size 15 but I think they'll go as high as you need.

Maybe you already talked with them - I'm just checking.

Good Luck,
