For Kung fu a traditional Chinese uniform, for Karate, black top gi, white bottoms, and a cup too!
In class, a full dobok in the winter; dobok pants and a t-shirt in the summer.

At home, whatever I'm wearing when I have time to practice... if I'm wearing something I don't want to sweat in, I'll usually change either to dobok pants and a t-shirt, or sweat pants and a t-shirt.
Hakama Pants (it has the same kind of tie as a Hakama but not the flowing part of a hakama, also only Black belts can wear them)

Traditional wrap around Gi (black)
I wear the same clothes as I woud if I were going to the store and that inclusdes ashoes. Since I will not be barefioot unless I'm at the beach, or wearing a Gi unless I'm at the studio, why not train in what I useually wear. I do this for one simple reason, practicality. If you train barefoot all the time and then have to defend yourself with a kick while wearing heavy boots, the kick has changed. Likewise, restrictive clothing such as jeans will have an affect so I think it's important to understand how your material will me affected.
i wear my special fighting power y-fronts.

actuall i just wear my thai shorts.

unless Im grappling and then I wear a rash guard aswel.

although this might need to change since theres a bit of a bloody fashion show going on at my MMA gym..its like who's got the coolest shirt or shorts.
At class, traditional gi, obi and no shoes

A group of us also gather once a week in the park for an informal workout, and there we wear whatever is comfortable, although we do not dress out formally. Some wear shoes and others don't.

At home I train in workout clothes and don't wear shoes.

depends what gym/dojo I'm in :)

When in my dad's dojo....ultra traditional...gi...or if using sword, hakama.

When at jiu jitsu, usually shorts, t-shirt, wrestling shoes (optional) and knee pads. Sometimes double woven gi.

Off nights at dad's dojo we wear shorts/sweats and have a freestyle workout.
standard black century uniform (hate it)

bringing up the question, anyone know where I can get a full black, judo-style, heavy weave uniform (I have no idea what the proper names are for that style)?

I can't stand the heavy canvas type material that is used in the century ironman. so my instructor and I want black judo/juijitsu type gi's.

Usually, a traditional dobok & bare feet. But sometimes, either uniform pants or shorts & t-shirt with wrestling or TKD shoes (if outside or a traditional class).
