Pin up Pre-Order Starts Now!

Hey! Remember my hugely popular Design a Crazy Ass Gi contest last year? No? Oh, let me give you a quick recap: You sent me colourful gi designs, we picked a winning entry, Tatami Fightwear made the winning gi, we then marvel at how gorgeous it is...and IT IS! See...


Here was the winner, Evan Mannweiler's original concept art for the gi:


This photo shows the insidey bit...






And here's the promo ad for both the gi AND the rashguard. Oh, did I forget to say? Yessiree, rash guard with the Pin Up will be sold too. High Five all jiu jitsu world!



You can pre-order the gi from the Tatami Fightwear website for an incredible £95!!!
The gi will be shipped out in six weeks. Tatami tell me they worked with their factory flat out to get the gi absolutely perfect and as faithful to Evans' design as possible. Thi gi incorporates a number of original and innovative aspects so I'm dying to get my hands on one and review the heck out of it. The gi will only be made in strictly limited quantities so I would say if you love the design, order now, before it is too late.

Is this gi only going to be available in black? No option of white?

Meerkatsu said...

Sorry, just grey.
Mind you, white would look sweet!

DirtyWhiteGi said...

Looks sweet! I like the rash guard, gi looks good too, but now that I think of it, they could of just made pin up patches to stitch on yourself.

Still awesome though!

Is it ibjjf legal?

Meerkatsu said...

Blue, white or black are the rules so I guess the Pin Up would not be IBJJF legal.

Adam said...

do you know if the estilo gis are made by ouano? reminds me of ouano's premium gis.

Meerkatsu said...

I do not know whether Estilos share any manufacturing elements with other gi makers.
