This has been a long time coming. Jits Magazine has been around for about seven years now, and Jits Shop has been around for more than four. But in all that time, we've never been involved in a gi project... until now.
After a lot of careful consideration and calculated planning and development, we've partnered with Northern California gi maker DojoChimp on this exciting limited-run gi project, inspired by our obsession with all things Leonardo Da Vinci.
We were pretty excited at the prospect of working with DojoChimp on this project. We consider them to be a boutique jiu-jitsu brand, focused on developing and producing super high-end jiu-jitsu goods (even though they are not really priced at a premium), and we have deep respect for their product development chops.
We worked in painstaking detail on the design and function of this piece, to create something that we feel is special and unique; something that we ourselves would want. And since this is a tiny batch art project, we've made just 100 pieces.
With interior artwork that features an illustration piece we commissioned from one of our all-time favourite jiu-jitsu artists, Phil Lietz, this gi pays homage to Da Vinci's famous sketch of the Vitruvian Man, depicting the ideal human proportions, which he based on the writings of the ancient Roman architect, Vitruvius. As we know all too well from our daily training, the physics of jiu-jitsu put human geometry to optimum use, which is why we are sure that Da Vinci would have certainly developed a love for the Gentle Art if he had been living today.
We poured our creative efforts into the nuanced detailings that make this project special, and ended up with a gi that is both a pleasure to look at and more importantly, a pleasure to wear. The jacket is light-weight, with a super solid construction. The pants will outlast us all. The modern, perfectly-cut DojoChimp fit rounds it out.
Produced in an unbleached, raw cotton with olive brown accents to match the colors of Da Vinci's original sketch, this special edition gi gives a nod to one of the most inspirational thinkers in history.
We hope you enjoy using the special edition Vitruvian gi as much as we enjoyed developing it!

Returns / Exchanges:
Your Vitruvian Gi comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, outlined as follows: If your shipment is incomplete, incorrect or damaged, please contact the DojoChimp Customer Satisfaction Department right away after receiving your gi, and it will be sorted out for you. You can phone 415-484-2242, Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM PST, or send an email to email@example.com. Please have your order confirmation on-hand.
Normal wear and tear is not covered by this warranty. Only incomplete, incorrect or damaged shipments are covered. Returns will not be accepted on items that are shown to have been worn, washed, used or altered in any way, whether accidental or intentional, even if within the 30 day guarantee period.
Please keep in mind that this is a limited release art project, and only 100 pieces are available. When you place your order, please refer to the sizing chart in the product images and ensure that you have chosen the right size, to avoid disappointment when your gi arrives. If in doubt about size, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to placing your order.
If you ordered the wrong size, or the gi doesn't fit you quite the way you expected based on the sizing chart, you can still return it or exchange it for a better fitting size, as long as you have not worn, washed, used or altered the gi in any way (and as long as there is still remaining stock of other sizes). In this case, you will be responsible for the return shipping. Once received, it will be inspected by DojoChimp's Quality Control Team, and if approved, we will then ship out another gi in the size you have requested (assuming there is remaining stock), or you will be refunded the full price of the product, minus shipping and handling fees. Just make sure to contact the DojoChimp Customer Satisfaction Department prior to any returns, by phone 415-484-2242, Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM PST, or by email to email@example.com, and have your order confirmation on-hand. ***BUT keep in mind that once you have ordered and returned your gi, there may not be any gis left in your size, given the limited nature of this release. In that case, the only option will be to either keep the gi or to get a refund.
