Not quite 20 off the top of my head, but close... And more all the time. :)These aren't all of the ones I've seen, but I didn't add the ones I didn't care for or that looked really cheap.

I either have now or have had the following brands:

Lucky Gi (OTM)
HCK Competition Single Weave
Gameness Pearl and Platinum
Padilla and Sons Gold Weave
Koral MKM (sold this one... didn't fit me well)
Atama Mundial #7

I'm anxiously awaiting a ShoYoRoll SuperLite.

Almost as many uniform companies as there are different styles that have been created this year.

well which brands do you use ?
In karate/taekwondo: Adidas, Dynamics, Tigerclaw, Proforce, Bold, to name a few.

In kendo, e-bogu.com, e-mudo.com, e-guchi.com to name a few. Plus, some of the karate gi producers also produce a kendo keikogi and hakama.
