If you want to look at getting value for your dollar, you won't need to look much further than 93 Brand's Hooks kimono. With the 2.0 edition, you get the fabrics, fit, and quality that we've come to expect from the East Coast fight company, plus updated graphics and colorways. They've also added thickness and width to the jacket's collar, making it tougher for your opponents to grab chokes and helps the top keep its shape after repeated washes.
Built from 425 GSM High-Tech Pearl Weave with ample reinforcements and minimal yet tasteful patchwork. The Hooks' trousers are also quite simple, featuring only one patch (sewn at the left hip). While the graphics and patches may be minimal, 93 Brand did not skimp on the Gi's construction itself. Some noteworthy specs include full-length knee reinforcements (coverage and protection regardless of how bizarre your scrambles may be), a cord drawstring, and four drawstring loops. The interior seams that are most vulnerable and susceptible to fraying are protected by a soft, cotton taping.
93 Brand's standard BJJ model delivers a surprising level of comfort and quality considering its impressive price point. Excellent for day-to-day training at any experience level.

93 Brand "Charlie" Lightweight BJJ Gi
Will this be back in stock any time soon? a1, a2
I am very happy with this gi. It is comfortable and lightweight. The pants are slightly shorter than I had expected, especially because it's an A2L, but they're not bad. The elastic drawstring is also very nice compared to the shoestrings on other pants.I have a somewhat athletic build, 6'0" at between 195-200 lbs and the A2L fit is perfect after a wash.
6'1" - 165lbs. I ordered a A2L, washed it warm and it felt fairly close to where I wanted it but as soon as it started getting sweaty it stretched back out to the pre-shrunk size. Now I feel like I should have ordered the A2. Input?
Whenever an all-cotton garment is shrunk deliberatly via heat/hot water, it will have some leeway to it once it's wet again. To avoid this, it's best to get the size that fits out of the bag rather than requires decent shrinkage. For your height, the A2 would suffice. I am just over 6'1" and I wear 93brand A2 with a cold wash and hang dry :)
I'm 5'11" and 195 lbs. (but losing weight). A2 or A2L? I'm concerned about the shrinkage of the A2.
Should I go A3? I want to get this gi for competition. Any help regarding size would be appreciated.
A2 should be perfect.
When will stock on the A4 and A5 come in?
Also, what do you recommend for size. 6'2" 230 with a long torso. I like a looser fit, so the lapel ends reach the sides of my hips. Fuji A4 before shrinking is just about perfect, after shrink not so much.
Bigger sizes are all restocked now :) You should get the A4 and shrink as needed. 93 brand runs bigger than Fuji.
Super soft out of the bag. After cold wash and hang dry, stiff...but wash again with fabric softener and it is soft again. they do shrink.
I'm 6'1 230. I ordered 1 in white, 1 in blue...2 different sizes.
The A2H fits fine after the wash..the jacket skirt is just a tad short for my liking and pants are a little short, but within comp regulations, but not so much that i would want to trade it in.
The A3 jacket was too tight after the wash..pants were perfect though. i sent it back for an A4 and will warm wash the A4 if needed.
They are very comfortable and the stitching is pretty solid. I'm very impressed with the quality for the price.
I'll wait for the A4 and update my review and compare rolling between the a2h and a4.
ok, so I've rolled in the A4 and A2h. I'm happy with both to be honest. The A4 sleeves are a tad long, even after warm wash. But,otherwise fits well, is comfortable and stands up to rolling. Between the two, I would rather use the shorter sleeve A2H to roll in. The sleeves aren't terribly short. Both fit about the same otherwise. The A4 has a longer skirt, which is to be expected. These will be my go to kimonos. I may buy others, but I'm really pleased with these.
I am 6'0" and 175 lbs and I purchased the A2L - perfect fit and gi has AMAZING feel to it. The sleeves are on the long side, which I actually prefer (not too long), and they are narrower than other gis which I LOVE - hard to grip! The only bummer is that the pants are just a little large (I have a 30" waist), but the same has been the case for the 3 other brands (Inverted G, Red Star, Storm) I have owned in past. I wish they could make you match different pants and jacket sizes, that would be a great marketing strategy (hint, hint).
Comfortable gi. I bought size A2H for myself- I'm an overweight woman 5-8 220lbs and losing. The pants fit great for being men's pants. Great price. The wheel belt is too small (like all the other gis I've purchased, so no big deal). The waist is about 27 inches measured across while laying flat.
I'm 5'8", 145. The A2 was big on me. Would I be better off with the A1 or A1L? Thanks very much.
I took it to class today and my professor said to wash it and put it in the dryer for a little bit. Sleeves went about halfway over my hands, but I'm going to try what he said rather than get the A1. I wasn't sure if 93 just runs a little big, but I haven't washed it yet, so I hope it shrinks enough.
I am an Asian big boy.... 5'6", 240lbs, waist = 44. I bought an A4. Paid $15 to alter the pant hem and jacket sleeve and it fit perfectly. Very light gi. Love the pants with all the loops. Would love to buy another one but losing weight so will have to look for a smaller size... Hopefully soon. : )
I'm a real stickler for fit and the A1L fits like tailored suit after a quick wash. By comparison, my other gis fit like God dang potato sacks. Exceptional quality for the price. I plan on buying another soon.
Wife is roughly 5"2-5"3 , roughly around 195lbs- 215'ish, any recommendation on size in relation to this gi? She alot of hips so to speak. Would an A2H be roughly in the ballpark?
A2H will be a bit long due to her height, but is your best option. Sleeves/pants would need to be taken in a bit.
I am 5'8", 174 pounds ... looks like A2 would be the best fit ... would you agree?
A2 will work best :)
Gonna have to return/exchange. Pants fit gr8, slim, perfect length. Belt is long and elastic like when u tie our knot. But the kimono top is huge and long. You can practically wrap both lapels to to each side of your torso. And the chest/lapel bellows out. Plus when you tie the belt there is so much excess ballooning of the kimono at the waist. And this is just from trying it on. And I got the A1 "fitted" and i'm a 5'5" 140 lb white belt piece of nothin!... There are so many gimmicks trend, and styles out there. But I think i'm gonna stick with no frills gis from now on. Looks like it's back to Fuji in every (3) color going forward lol
@GL You must have gotten a mis-labeled Gi top. There is no way an A1F should be big, at all, on someone 5'5" and 140 lbs.
My teammate is 5'6" and 135 lbs and his A1F fits like a glove.
Please exchange the Gi (using your free return label and free shipping) for another A1F and I'm sure it will work.
From time to time a factory is bound to put the wrong label on a Gi, sorry to hear that it happened with yours!
To be fair the A1F is simply a way to accommodate different body types, something that Fuji does not have, so I don't think 93 Brand is going for a gimmick. Rather, simply trying to accommodate more grappler's body types :)
@sirgeorge. Will do. Solid advice from a solid company. Thanks.
Thank for swapping out for another A1F. It fits like a glove! And is really light weight yet durable when rolling. Earned my 1st stripe while wearing it. Thanx.
Hi Rollmore I am 5'5" 140lbs. Undecided betwn A1F and A1. I like a nice slim fit on my gi's. I'm wondering if A1 will have too much room and maybe A1F will be just right?
GL - if you prefer a slim fit, then A1F is the way to go, absolutely.
Love the gi, the quality is exceptional for the price, for instance the cuffs of the pants have 4 layers of stitching. I've had mine for 2 months and I was so pleased i bought another in black, also used the return to figure out size,their customer service and free shipping is really amazing.
I'm 5' 9" and 195 lbs, mostly thighs and shoulders. 30" inseam. I cold water wash and high heat tumble dry my other gi. What size should I buy?
Tough call as your height is an A2 but your weight is just out of A2 range (A2H is for someone a bit more broad/heavy).
Personally I would recommend picking up the A2 and sticking to a cold wash/hang dry method. That should keep it just right. Regularly tumble drying on high heat is not recommended by the manufacturer. If you plan to use High Heat anyway, then A2 will end up shrinking too much for someone 195 lbs. In that case it'd be better to get an A2H or A3 and allow it to shrink, though the A2H is for someone heavier and A3 is for someone taller, so it wouldn't be an ideal fit. For this reason it is much better to go for an A2 and stick to the manufacturer's instructions of cold wash/hang dry.
Thank you for the help
I love how light this GI; only problem i had was it stretched by 2 inches and won't shrink back after first roll. I just got it trimmed in the sleeves.
