    And with the exception of multiple classes a week and needing a fresh go, why do you own the number you have? And what is your favorite?

    I think I have four gis at the moment. Three of them are the cheapest I could find but my newest is a nice custom gi that my teacher bought for me (and the other instructors at our gym) for Christmas.

    I train 4-5 days per week, so it's good to have spare gis when I don't have a chance to do laundry right away.

    None. I just gave away a couple used ones that were in really good shape. I don't go to a BJJ place at the moment so when I roll I wear karate gi pants and a t-shirt.

    Probably going to start up again later in the year and will get a nice fresh new one. :)

    I have too many. Way too many. I have been trying to give away the ones I hardly use anymore over time to get down to that nice number of around four or five.

    I have one currently. I did have two but sold one when I left my old school. It had the school's logo on it and was a little small for me anyways. I'm probably going to pick up a second one again in a month or so here. I should be with this gym for the next few years so was thinking of getting one of their gis. I always throw it into the wash as soon as I get home so it's never really a cleanliness issue. I'll admit that I am a pretty heavy sweater... So I couldn't imagine just waiting until laundry day to wash mine. All kinds of funk would be coming from it and it may just grow into something sentient.

    Two. They are both the same and are for training. No favorite.

    8. I teach multiple classes daily so I need 2-3 clean ones per day unless just kids classes. Storm gi's in many weights. Prefer Roots gi's but have to wear schools gi.

    Three. One is actually an old Judo gi.

    My original gi is falling apart though, so I need to buy another one. Anyone up for recommending one?

    It has to be white without any thing on the back.
