Here's all the news from the first Lanky FG Newsletter.  If you aren't subscribed, you missed out on a special offer. Don't miss the next one and put your email in at the bottom of the page!!!

GI UPDATE

I started Lanky FG to make the perfect fitting gi.  I have always had trouble with gis being either too short in the legs, sleeves, and torso or too baggy.  I also didn't want to pay and arm and a leg or try and compete with other people to get in on a super small batch.

I've been working hard to get things perfect before putting in a big order. I just received the next iteration of our design and things look great. I think the changes we made really work.  Check out the differences below:

Changes to the main logo:


Figure 1 - Removed the "FIGHT GEAR" under to octopus for a cleaner look.

Changes to the loop system:


Figure 2 - Removed the horizontal loops that created a weird angle for the drawstring and bunching of the pants.

Changes to the seam tape:

Figure 3 - Seam tape is no longer scratchy and has a better design.

I still have a little more testing to do and then it will be time to pull the trigger, but I can honestly say that this is the best fitting and feeling gi I have ever rolled in.

We will be offering a specially priced pre-sale and those that are subscribed to the newsletter will be the first to know about it. The pre-sale price will only be for a limited time and when it's done, it's done.

RASH GUARD UPDATE

The rash guards are going to be up on the web store very soon. I have samples coming in a week or so. And based on the mockups, they look like they are good to go. Once I get them on hand and tested on the mat, the order goes in. They are fully sublimated and IBJJF approved ranked rash guards. These are cut longer than just about every other rash guard out there. I will let you know in advanced when they are ready to go up for sale.
