I've tried on several pairs and they all fit badly. Here's my problem, I'm 5'11" and I weigh 230lbs. Even worse I have a 50" chest and a 32" waist. Everything I try on to fit my upper body is to damn big in the waist. I'm going to have to go the route of having leathers made unless someone knows of a particular brand or style suit that might fit me...

Holy crap!! You must look like an upside down triangle.
I hate to say it, but custom or two piece is probably going to be the only way.

Put down the creatine
If you find a smokin deal you can always have it altered.

there is a guy on ebay that makes custom sized suits pretty reasonable. A lot of guys bash him but I have seen two of his suits at the track and they were really quite nice.

Custom is about all you going to find. The fit is the best that way. You'll thank me later especially with your measurements!

Arnold! I did not know you rode an RC too - Are you also in Kaleefournia?!?!


There is a guy I ordered my suit from - it is still coming up to about $900, but with removable liner, full size hump, lettering, etc, etc. They make great suits. I have a Z as well, but it cost way more than this one.

I am 6' 3", 48-50 Chest, 38 Waist (I know, eat less sweeties). If you decide on custom, lemme know, I can refer you to him. Otherwise, go 2-Piece. Joe Rockets are cut pretty generously.

Do what I did loose weight.
Seriously I loved to lift. Used to be 5'11" 235lbs.
Nothing would fit though. Tried everything I could get my hands on. Til finally I came to the conclusion I'm spreading myself too thin. Too many hobbies in conflict. My emphasis is on endurance these days and now my weight is at 205lbs. I did make it to 190lbs. a while ago but that was on the boat. Its easy to loose weight on the boat though.

BTW I just got a Suomy one piece size 58 fits as if it were taylord.

Say no more, call this number, ask for Darrin, tell him the old man refered you, and case closed. They will make you a set of leathers that will fit and look so good, you won't want to ride anymore. You will just be posing.

Just been doing it like religion for the past 10yrs. Found out early on what works. Old school as in Mike Mentzer.
It started out with a simple plan, you know put on some extra beef, fill out my sleeves. Kinda like my plan to just put some pipes on the RC. Just snow balls, eventually you get caught up in it. Before you know it your buying jeans that fit your 30" thighs even if it means always having to wear a belt.

and besides that... 50lbs of lean mass is HUGE in a 5yr span!!!!!

I started with a Endomorphic 240lb frame at 20% bf ...now at 300 im closer to 14% bf... for my make up to get leaner than that would cost me tremendous amounts of mass, though I am now on a mission to drop to 270 ish for wrestling!!! we'll see.

Coleman, not everyone can afford to shit $2500 for a set of RS custom leathers. There are plenty of places making custom leather suits for the $1000-1500 mark depending on how cutom you want them. When you add lettering and humps, it drastically increases the price of the suit. Most guys ordering custom suits have so much lettering and sponsor crap added, that it more than doubles the price of the suit.

A good injury can help stickify you too.

The AGV sizing charts would suggest they are cut with a smaller waist too - I need to check them out.
