    I'm 5ft 9" and 96kg and every other A3 I've tried has been too tight for me around the shoulders. The Vulkan however is perfect.
    We are a similar size I'm 5 10 and 88KG, but a bit top heavy (I have skinny legs ha ha). I wear a Keiko Raca Limited edition but found that an A3 jacket and A2 trousers are perfect for me.

    Conversely I hate the abundance of (crap looking, imo) patches and trim on Black Eagle, Blitz, Tatami gis. I like the plainer looking gis.

    Yeah, enough to make it a nice tight fit. I think it could be shrunk much more than I did though, I could have done another 60 wash or a 90.

    I used to think pre-shrunk was the best option but now am more a fan of shrink to fit as it lets you get a much better personal sizing.

    I think it comes down to taste at the end of the day? with a shit load of quality gi's around now in the uk i think its just down to personal style?, one lad walked in, in a feral gi lasy nite and tbf looked ok for 38 had a feel and checked it at the end of the nite and it still held up ( unlike some I have owned recently ) he said it shrank abit on a 30, but to me looks like it could do with a 60 wash as its still a little loose around the sleaves. it was white so no dye came out lol

    Yeah, obviously the patch/trim issue is totally personal.

    Aye, that's why I went with Faixa Rua. I don't like patched/overtly branded Gi's.
