Not just the patch itself coming off, but the white piping around the patch was separating from it. Pretty irritated to say the least. I e-mailed the company and got a quick response. E-mailed some pics of the patches. They are sending me a few new ones that I'll have to get sewn on. Or they offered me 10% off my next purchase which is a fucking joke. I'll take the patches, thanks.
-So all in all, their stitching is sub par, only a single stitch around all the patches. I feel it should be double stitched or something to reinforce it better.
-The gi itself seems to be of good quality, but we'll see how it stands up long term.
-Customer service is quick to respond and good to deal with, but their offer to me was mediocre at best.
-And finally I just know I wont get the patches for at least two weeks because they are on a slow boat from Brazil.
Added, thanks for the review.
