Also, doesn't your school sell their own GI's? If not (and you're still confused - since you are getting a lot of different answers) then perhaps you should ask your instructor these questions.

Yes, the school does sell them but they are only the single weave gi's and I'm not sure on the brand. The majority of students at the school wear blue gi's so I think that's what I will go with.

Thanks everyone so much for all the help. It's very appricieated.

at our gym we mostly wear blue gi's but what everyone said is true about not allowing certain colors in tournaments so i suggest blue or white. As for patches thats mostly for sponsors and patches from your team or gym so i dont think you should worry about that for now.

white is best to start off

but blues are much easier to maintain.. less stain gets attracted to it (blood, sweat, etc)

blue, black and white are all legal with ibjff sanctioned tournaments...

It shouldn't really be a problem unless you're training at a traditional school. But I'd stick with blue or white. Red isn't that great of an idea, black is better but still not great. If you're new and you show up wearing a red or black gi it kind of says "look at me, I'm trying to be flashy".

Yeah white is good for beginners. I remember when I walked in with my new white gi and everyone was like wow how is yours so clean?! But yeah honestly, we look at people with other than white or blue as show offy, or experienced. There is one guy at my place with a black gi and hes pretty good but he uses his strength alot and neck cranks. Besides him, Gonzaga comes through with a red gi sometimes, and i guess hes the only one allowed.

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.

there are only 2 gi colors you can wear in judo (white or blue), 3 in bjj (white, blue or black). it is all bout preference. i wear my judo gis in bjj tournys, just make sure when you purchase you will be able to past inspection, everyone looks at the length only and forget to look at if the seem has the drop form the arm. also concider shrinkage. that is why i only buy double weave preshrunk.

Gameness is good, they care about their customers.
comfortable, real nice gi's good thick collars, good weaves.

patches are all about being your self lol.

i'd go with a blue gi, white gi's get mad nasty dirty. black gi's are cool, but its kinda out of place.
