93brand "Butterfly Originals" Casual Gi Pants - Dark Blue
SUMMARY OF FIT ALTERATIONS:
Since the traditional training Gi is intended for maximum mobility, the fit tends to be more boxy than you'd find in your wardrobe at home. So 93brand modified each size to make these pants more form-fitting. You don't need to size down to get a slimmer fit. After taking into consideration which body type each Gi is suited for, the fit was adjusted by: slimming the legs, tapering the legs toward the cuff, and lifting the crotch (that baggy gusset needed for guard mobility... it's not flattering on the booty).
Considering the alterations mentioned above...
- If you order your usual Gi size, the alterations have already been made (which is why the Size Guide in the image slideshow is different than 93brand's typical Gi Size Guide). So you'd receive a fitted pair of pants that hug the body more closely, with a taper and length akin to a pair of fitted chinos or joggers (as the photos show here).
- If you tend to be on the cusp of 2 sizes, it's safe to go for the larger size and shrink down if needed (the fabric does have some natural shrinkage).
- If you prefer a looser fit, go up one size.
