    I think you said you worked at Macy's, what kind of jobs are you applying for? must be a pretty tough market

    very much so.





    i just realized you have to weigh in with your gi on. is there any reason i shouldn't get a light gi? i need to buy another anyway. i only have one.

    You weigh all of 125lbs, why are you worried about a lightweight gi?

    The only downside to really light gi's is they tend to not last as long. But if you make it your comp gi and wear it to comps and then maybe train in it once every couple weeks it will stay pretty and new.

    I won't ever buy a nice gi. Gis are disposable IMO.

    I've got one that's nearly 3 years old and has a ton of patches on it and a few newer ones that I know won't last that long, but I nurse them along as long as I can.

    yea i used to work at the macys home store buying office.. i worked in IT.. when they consolidated they pretty much got rid of divisional IT and replaced it with a call in support type thing.. just applying for IT jobs but IT market is terrible.. been on a few crap interviews and even a couple of scams..
