Would you say the cut/fit is similar to that of the Tau? I ask cause I fit a Hooks 2.0 in A2H after several hot washes/drying, but trying on the Tau in A2H was much too big. If it's similar to the unbleached, I'd prefer that model.
I owned a Fuji Summerweight and a Tatami Nova before getting around to purchasing a 93 Brand Hooks gi. I wish I had experienced the comfort, style and fit of 93 Brand first as I would not have bought the others. This is serious bang for your buck -- incredibly well constructed gi with incredibly comfortable pearl weave. The pants are soft cotton. It may look minimal from first glance but the details turns heads -- the contrast stitching, the yellow drawstring and the gray trims and belt loops. Wonderful value. When I eventually replace my white and blue gis, they will both be 93 Brand, based on this experience.
If there is a con, it's the tricky sizing. I'm 5'5" and 190 lbs. I'm between sizes. Based on my tight fits with both Fuji and Tatami, I thought to size up to A3. While hot water washes/dries did shrink it a bit, I couldn't get the sleeves/torso to shrink up proportionally. Thankfully, 93 Brand produces A2H (and Roll More's return policy helps). After a few washes/dries, it fits like a glove.
