    tbf if they are made in pakistan then the brit companys im sure could get them cloned easy?. The new black eagle ripstop pants are cool and a step in the right direction if they had the bungie draw string they would be perfect!.
    I wasn't joking in my previous post.

    I got completely caught up in the shoyoroll hype and ordered one. Then I thought "this is insane, someone should do this in the UK".

    I'm up for it, but have NO IDEA WHERE TO START.

    Hey PieDog,

    We sell Tatami gis and products at our gym and they are awesome.

    I've done a review of their new shorts that I'll be posting soon on my blog. They are really nice and come at a very reasonable price.

    Here's a pic of them (don't know how to post the pic here in a reasonable size...it just comes out ginormous!)

    Mainly in sialkot pakistan but you imo would need to be there to oversea production cos if the send u a few samples of your design and they look ace the bulk order could be a load of shit they send you.
    Its allot of hassel and time consuming but the return could be great.

    Producing goods overseas is a long term project not a quicky to make fast bucks. Supplier quality, costs and import details need to be sorted out. Costing and a sound business model need to be sorted up front to do it right.

    Black eagle have been doing it a few years now and I guess Steve and the guys have had thier fair share of issues.

    Personally I think you need to be there, if it's Pakistan, vietnam, Bali or Brazil. Nothing beats being there face to face, see the samples, make the changes you need to and see the production run start.

    Guys I know pretty much spend thier life travelling the globe, meeting suppliers, coming up with new concepts and ensuring they are prodcued to high standards. It's not an easy job as you may think (though it's not all work, some surfing and Jiujitsu mixed in too)

    Damn, my business plan was gonna be...

    1. Draw a cool gi design with some Crayola
    2. Email it to a guy in Pakistan
    3. ??
    4. Profit
