Hi everyone,
My father began training back in the 1960s, and the most common gi available was made by H.S.K in Japan, and distributed by Honda Martial Arts in NYC (and presumably others as well). Here is an ad from Black Belt Magazine from the 60s

I have been trying to track one of these gi down for years now unsuccessfully (they turn up from time to time on Ebay and similar sites, but always in a size 0-2... not helpful!) If anyone has one they're interested in selling, please let me know! I'm looking for Judo in size 5 or 6, and Karate in both white and dark blue size 5.
My father's original gi have unfortunately gone missing, and I'd love to replace them! (and if anyone has any of those Kodokan rank patches let me know too!)
Thanks for your help!
