Gi recommendations for BJJ noob

I've started training BJJ/luta livre in Leopoldo Serao's academy and need to buy a gi. I'm 5 feet 8 inches (1.72 m) tall and weigh about 145 lbs. (65.77 kg). So, what brands do you guys recommend?

Leopoldo suggested Jiu Jitsu Pro Gear, but damn, that's expensive at my current budget. I was looking into either Fuji or Bad Boy gis which are about 40$ cheaper than Pro Gear.

So, um, yeah, that's kinda all I wanted to know, and now I have to fulfill the word limit.

Uhhh, today was day #2 of grappling, and during the free rolling session, I ended up with my face full of dick while escaping a triangle choke. Not sure if my body's sore from pain or exhaustion.

I finally had some alcohol for the first time in months with Carlo Rossi sangria. I was trying to get drunk off of it, but it's so sweet that I think I'd puke if I did. Ok, and now I met the word limit.
