42-44 Waist? Oh yeah I remember when I was that skinny

The answer to your question is to buy leather stuff a size or two bigger. At least that has been my experience. Leather stuff tends to run a bit small. True it stretches out a bit, but not if you can't get it on in the first place.

I wear a XXXL Vortex Jacket, and a size 56 leathers. The best thing to do is go to shops that sell stuff for larger guys (i.e. Shenandoah Honda) and try it on if possible. You might even try a Harley shop for sizing stuff.

Oh yes. One other thing. If you have never had full leathers before and plan to get them...NEVER under any circumstances try them on when you are home alone!

Hope this helps ya
