don’t think many people will be able to use the guma link lol. It’s fitting that they came out with women sizes for the gi that is designed after tiffany and co. I always thought this gi was a bit feminine

I am 5’10” and 170lbs, should I go for an A1L or an A2?
Thank you in advance

    hey joe. i wear an a2 at 6’1″ and 200lbs. I think you should definitely go A1L 🙂

Hey Brendan,
I am going to get my wife this gi also but they took away the A00!! She is 5’2″ and between 110-115, slim and she has the 7th son and GS in A00 and loves the snug fit. What are your thoughts?? Thanks

Sizing question: I’m 6’3 and around 175. What size would suit me?

Reply
    Brendan says November 1, 2012

    Hey Ed. At your height and weight, the A3 will be baggy on you but the a2 will be too short on the arms/legs. I would say go for the a3 and shrink it as needed.

      Ryan says November 1, 2012

      I say A3s. Super long and thin. I owned one 6’1″ 165 an it fit great in the body but the sleeves were past my fingertips

Miguel says November 2, 2012

Hey, I have a sizing question, I weigh 125 lbs and stand at 5’3″, should I get the A0, or an A1 and let it shrink? I’m curious because I occasionally throw my gis in the drier during rainy season and I haven’t had any experience with the shrinkage of shoyoroll gis. Thanks guys!

Reply
    Brendan says November 2, 2012

    Hey Miguel. The a1 will definitely be big and the tech weave doesn’t shrink as much as a gold weave. the shrinkage is similar to a pearl weave. I’d say go a1 and shrink away! That way, if its still too big, you can always get it tailored down a bit

    James says November 5, 2012

    go with the A0, I’m 5’7 and 145 and wear an A0, fits perfect out of the bag. i’ve owned a couple A1’s from shoyoroll and they’ve been pretty big, especially in the body, you’ll swim in an A1 since you’re 5’3.

I’m 5’10 185lbs and picked up an A3 450 Comp white. I was 195lbs when I bought it. I am swimming in it and I never wear it. Migh ebay it or trade it. I will definitely go with the A2 for this one.

    Brendan says November 2, 2012

    oh absolutely! you’re almost GiReviews Dan’s size and he wears an a2 also. a3 is massive for you. more for people over 6’1″ and over 210.

How dose one become able to buy GUMA Exculisive?

Harry says November 3, 2012

Brendan, did the Shoyoroll A3 get bigger after the count? I am 6’2 and 205- 210.
My A3 Count fits me perfect after a tittle dryer time, as do my A3 Yank and A3 7th Son. But the A3 ring and my A3 Rio Koi seem to fit the body, with a bit of dryer time, but the sleeves are 3 or 4 inches too long. I would rather have them too long, then too short as my tailor took care of it no problem.

It does seem like the A3 has gotten bigger. Weird, because in so many brands, I am an A4, and now it looks like I am moving closer to a Shoyoroll A2.
Sucks because my Count, Yank and 7th Son could not fit any better, and this is why I really liked Shoyoroll. At 6’2 205-210 I was in the sweet spot for the A3, but what happened?

Jon Morales says November 5, 2012

Brendan and co., thoughts on sizing for 5’9 160 lbs? I’m usually forced to warm wash/dry since i’m limited to washing locations. So typically i’m comfortable shrinking an A2 but would an A1L shrink too much?

Reply
    Brendan says November 5, 2012

    Hey Jon. Thanks for the note. I wear an A2 and I’m 6’1 and 200. Dan wears one as well and he’s 5’10 and a bit lighter than me. You are definitely an A1L in SYR sizing.

Jordan says November 5, 2012

Hey guys, I am anxiously waiting until 10am to hopefully buy my first SYR gi. I dont know if I should go A1 or A1L I am 5’8 165 so right on the maximum for A1. Should i get the A1 or just go A1L?

Reply
    Brendan says November 5, 2012

    Definitely go with the A1L Jordan! You’ll like the fit of it much better!

      The GUMA exclusive Charles Lew V1 will be open to the public during Black Friday (November 23, 2012).

      As an added bonus, the Charles Lew V1, V2 & V3 will be available in limited quantities and sizes (while supplies last). **Limit of ONE per customer.

      Originally, you could only buy the V2 on Nov 5/2012 at Shoyoroll.com until sold out. I guess they were not really sold out, because a little while later Budovideos.com started to sell them until sold out. Now they are selling the Charles Lew once again “UNTIL SOLD OUT”. HOW MANY TIMES CAN THIS GI BE “SOLD OUT”?
      I’m having a hard time beleiving that only 250 of these Gi’s were made.

      There must be some unhappy GUMA members now that the V1 and A3 are up for grabs to the general public.

        “The Charles Lew V2 (Black) gi will be sold on Saturday (11/3/12) and the Charles Lew V3 (White) will be sold on Sunday (11/4/12). The V3 is an IN PERSON ONLY release! The V3 will not be available for sale to the general public after the event. ”

        “The V3 will not be available for sale to the general public after the event?????????” EXCEPT FOR THE BLACK FRIDAY SALE AND WHENEVER SHOYOROLL DECIDES TO. LOL!

        Brendan says November 22, 2012

        Not unless we can get one using our discount on Black Friday as well. But it definitely got rid of the whole allure of them being ‘guma-exclusive’ I wonder how many will be up for sale of Friday.
