The new gi is the same cut as the old ultra white gis. It's an extremely lightweight gi due to its custom tight weave pattern. The gi doesn't have the traditional bulky gi feel as the classic standard gis. It has a less constraining fit which allows for greater flexibility.
It features navy woven labels both on the shoulders and thighs instead of the royal blue trim of the pearl weave series 1. The back consists of a single piece of fabric, unlike most gis which is made up of two or three joining pieces of fabric, allowing greater durability, faster drying, and enhanced comfort when working from the guard.
A cool feature is that all Slim Fit Pearl Gis have a hidden mouthguard pocket inside of the jacket and comes with a gi bag with each purchase.

*Sizes indicated are based on the gi AFTER it has been shrunk in the wash. Also, if you're on the border between two sizes, choose the larger size gi. For example, if you're 6'1" and 210 lbs. you'd be at the top of the A3 sizing but the bottom of A4, in which case you will be much better off with the A4 as the A3 will most likely be too small.
