Basicaly, I just want to know if it's offensive or just a bad idea to show up in anything other than a plain white gi. Thanks!

wash the gi before you bring it to the mat and stain someones nice white gi. this goes for under armor too. my team mate did that to me when he wore his new black gi, new black under armor /w his matching black underarmor ballerina pants. at the end of the day it looked like i laid chest down in a charcoal pit.
