Following from the success of my Heavenly Kimono in black earlier this year, I am please to launch the white version gi. It features all the same beautiful construction and detail as the previous version...apart from a few subtle twists.
The Heavenly Kimono in white will be available on the 10th October 2014 at 2pm UK time (9am EDT, 6am PDT). From www.meerkatsu.com for £100 plus shipping.
It is also available from other retailers if you prefer.
Here is more information about the gi:-
In custom with my previous gi launch, I will be offering the first 100 customers a free limited edition artcard (photo below). The art card is signed and numbered. Also included is another small free gift - but I will keep the design a secret that only the one hundred will know about!
Heavenly Kimono features a 475gsm pearlweave cotton jacket and 10 oz ripstop cotton trousers. The interior is lined along the yoke with a dye sublimated printed panel featuring artwork by me. The exterior is lightly decorated with embroidered motifs and woven patches placed in compliance with IBJJF gi rules.
The sleeves are gently tapered and lined with smoothly folded woven seam tape. The same tape is used along the inner hem at the base of the jacket and again along the inside of the ankle openings. The entire gi is designed as a slim fitting kimono for general and tournament use.
The Heavenly Kimono comes pre-shrunk. As with all gis however, do expect a small percentage of shrinkage under cold wash conditions. I recommend you do not use the tumble dryer, but instead, air dry the gi. The size chart here will give a good indication of the size (pre-wash) that should suit the user’s own body dimensions – I suggest you use an old gi that you have measured as a comparison.
When you first open the gi bag, you may notice a factory mothball like odour (perfectly harmless). Air the gi outdoors or in a room for a day or so and you should be good to go.
Here is some eye-candy:
