To tell ya the truth, I wouldn't be caught dead in a black or red Gi. Hell, I'm conflicted whether I should buy a blue Gi(I have a white one already), since I'm very traditional when it comes to judo. At some judo schools in Japan you couldn't train in any kind of a gi except white.

Blue or White is the going trend I think, not that it really matters but you would look out of place I think in any other colour.

Given the high dropout rate of this sport, go cheap initially. Once you have some experience and decide that this is for you then you can spend the cash on a pricey gi. Just my 2 cents. Good luck and have fun training.

on another note, I would check to see if your local gym where you want to train sell gi's and other equipment and if so buy from them, help support your local gym thats what I say.
