What brand of gi is your favorite? Striking/grappling hybrid needed!

I teach a combination of kickboxing (Muay Thai with a lot of clinching) and karate. In the karate class we practice the kata and spent at least as much time working on throws, trips, grabs, from the bunkai. We also put some time in on practical self-defense. My students have never worn a gi. I have, my original training was in Tang Soo Do, but when I opened my school, it didn't make sense to wear gis. When I started adding more applications from the kata (inspired by Iain's work) I realized our t-shirts and shorts weren't ideal training attire.

I can't be the only one to practice in this manner, so I'd like some help trying to find them.

I know that this association have clubs in Europe and are connected to Kancho Bernard Creton who formed this particular branch.
