easy, they listened to all the idiots who bitch about not being able to order one so they made a larger stock (even though ordering one, as long as you are near a internet connection, has ALWAYS been simple from budovideos).

I'm not terribly familiar with the details of all the releases but my guess would be because it is black and also the gi is tied to a specific individual from a specific team which in my opinion always limits it's customer base to the supporters of that team or individual. Phone Post

Well, in the last few days I had to rent a U-Haul and spent almost $700 filling it with all the Twinkies I could get my hands on.


I WAS gonna use the profit to load up on SYRs.

... STUPID.

Releasing right before black friday may have also been a factor. Why buy a gi at 185 when you can get one of comparable/better quality for significantly less.

Larger stock, poor promotion, 3rd black gi in a row, too soon after the Charles Lew models. All of these are contributing factors.

It is starting to get old with the "limited release." I know probably about 50% of the people who tried to get the last two releases got it in their cart and then it disappeared during checkout. They basically said, screw this. They want to be cared for as customers. SYR didn't much care of they were pissing people off.
Combine that with the third black gi in a row, right before black friday, and MOST IMPORTANT: TONS of equal gis in quality and that are easy to get and cheaper.

the reason is that shoyoroll was addressing the concerns. People were upset that they couldnt get a gi and complaining for days after the sell about how they had it in the shopping cart and then it disappeared. Now people are complaining because it didnt sell out in 3 minutes. can't please everyone.

I have yet to hear any complaints. merely questions wondering why. Big difference.

Part of the fun is the chase. If you're gonna train might as well look good doing it. And if anyone says shoyorolls are ugly, you're just hating cause you had a hard time getting one. Phone Post
