Im looking at buying a new gi and iv narrowed it down to the Tatami estilo 5.0 and the Tatami nova. I'm 6'0", 180-190 pounds depending on my living habbits and I have pretty broad shoulders. They have different sizing charts with the estilo recommending A2L and the nova recommending an A2. My worry is that I am right at the edge of an A3 and dont know if it will shrink but I also read that tatami fits a bit long. Anyone have experience with these styles?
akb62 is right. go a3 on the nova and i'd go a2l on the estillo
i have two nova's, i'm 5'10" at 190. and after a year of training they have shrunk to the point where i can still wear them without looking like i'm in a kids gi, but i doubt they would be ibjjf legal. i cold wash and hang dry these gis.
if i had to warm wash and machine dry these, i would definitely have gone with an a3.
Im 6 2 and 185-190. The tatami estilo 5.0 in A3 fits me perfectly
Go with the A3 - I'm 5'11 and 200lbs the A3 fits nicely if anything it is slightly too long
does anyone know how much the estilo 5.0 can shrink if you want it to?
