are you guys planning on selling this guy at all? This was seriously the best feeling gi that I've felt. I would wear it to bed. Not to mention the black collar/lapel.

Here's a little more info about the "Lovato signature Lucky Gi". One of the reasons Scotty went to China was to find the rarest of silks for the interior of this gi, which is made from the rarest of Chinese caterpillars. The most common type of silk is obtained from cocoons made by the larvae of the mulberry silkworm, which is reared in captivity. "Wild silks" are produced by caterpillars other than the mulberry silkworm, which cannot be artificially cultivated. The variety of wild silks that have been found in Southeast Asia and China have a much smaller scale of production than that of cultivated silks and they are also different in texture and color. This is because they are much softer due to less intrusive cultivation, which makes them a lot more difficult to dye. So the next time you see Scotty, make sure you thank him for chasing caterpillars and collecting their doo-doo all over China for us! :)
Damn! I feel like crying!
the marketing for these things is ridiculous... I saw them for sale last year ADCC in NJ for $200+ and thought that was ridiculously expensive.
Now I am pretty much writhing in pain for one of these Gis... actually I really like the black one and potentially the LJ Signature Gi... damn...
We are going to have to change the collar to white. They wouldn't let me or any of my guys compete with the gi because of the black collar.
ummm... that's lame..?
yeah, that's been the rule for awhile now. in a sense it's good otherwise we'd probably be seeing more tribal and denim gi's coming out of brasil
White, black and blue gi's are allowed. Patches are also allowed on the gi, which are also different colors. I see no harm in a different color collar??
just my .02
so whats the status with the gis??
Be a few months before they are ready.
Thanks for the updates, Scotty. I can’t wait for these to come out! Are you going to remove the black collar?
i was wondering if they were going to let lovato and his guys compete in those gis because in the rules it says that a competitor must where either an all white all black or all blue gi....the only reason i know this is when i was looking at koral gis they have one thats black and white so i looked up the regulations and saw that so i didnt buy the gi, but i wasnt sure how stringently they inforced that rule... so did they let you guys where the lovato gi or did you have yo where another gi
Lovato stated they would not let him were the gi because of the collar, but I do not know what tournament he was talking about.
They wouldnt let us wear the Lovato gi's at the Pan Ams cuz of the black collar, so we had to get new gi's to compete in.
i know this is an old thread...but you guys should put a waiting list area on your shop page followed by email address here: box. i want one of these the day they come out.
question... I wash and hang dry my gis, how do you guys keep your gis soft? Air drying gis make them stiff as a board.
i want one!
yea that Gi looks sweet. Scotty just sent me a lucky gi and it is by far one of the best Kimonos i have trained with.
Wait until after the Pan Ams. They will be available for sale sometime in April. I think there will only be like 500 made. Scotty will have more info.
mann i would love to get one of those gis but im sure there going to be really expensive and my broke college punk arse cant afford a gi that expensive.
Heck I don't even do Gi JJ and I like the Lucky Gi. I may get one just to lounge around the house. :)
