new BJJ student, color of gi matter?

Hi,
I'm starting BJJ within the next few weeks and was searching online for a gi. Does the color of the gi itself (not the belt obviously) have any significance? In other words, if I show up as a newbie in a red or blue gi, does that mean something? Or should I just buy a white one. Also, what about patches? 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!

-Kurt

The color of the gi doesnt matter

How about something like this then?

Keiko Raca Red Limited Edition Special Gi

It's a lot cheaper than the other one I posted.

Thanks.

I wouldn't recommend a red gi, since they are not allowed in tournaments. You are allowed to wear white, blue, or black in tournaments.

Buy a white one, or a blue one, not any other colors. Wearing a red or black Gi is like wearing a target around your neck pretty much, even blue ones to an extent

It doesn't matter what colour GI or how many patches you have. It's all personal preference. Although most schools will allow you to train in any coloured GI, I'd suggest only getting a white, blue or black GI since al ot of tournaments only allow you to participate in those standard colours.
