I am not familiar with this gi.  My last gi's were Mizuno Shia comp gi.  I ordered all my gis from Hatashita Sports.  Call Lia and she is very good at answering your quesrions.  She let me order different pant/top sizes since I  am 5'10" and around 158 lbs(73k) and need the longer pant.

Yeah I know her. She is downstate from me.  I am a Mizuno Shia Comp GI. I am a size 4.5 and then got the pants shortened. Everyone asks me about them. See our instructor has a deal with Fuji's which I guess are ok but have always stuck with Mizuno.

I have 2 buddies who have their own dojo's and think they sell  Fuji/Kwon Gi(s) to their students.  I will ask them and let you know.

Kwon's high end gi is Danhro from Germany is what one of buddies says is the most liked. He orders Kwon and Fuji for his students.

I didn't think Kwon was still making them? I don't see that many of them around at tournaments.  It could be regional here in the North East?

I might try one for the heck of it. Everytime I try other GI's I comeback to Mizuno
