I need a suit, I want a 2 piece. I'm tall and lanky, 6'4" and about 190. 46" chest. Anyone know what off-the-shelf suits would fit me? Teknic seems to run tall I think, but not sure. Any ideas? Thanks

Why "off the shelf"? Do you need it tomorrow?

I have a two piece Aerostich Roadcrafter ... They may already have one cut for your size or you can specify the sizes and colors and wait about 3 weeks ... I like the 'stich.

Off the shelf because I don't want to spend much more than $600. I'm assuming custom suits will run a good bit more. If I can't find an off-the-shelf that fits, I guess I will eventually get a custom made, but I was just wonsering if there were any out there that'd fit me so I don't have to go through the trouble and extra expense.

Hey DC I am 6'5" and picked up a Teknic Chicane jacket at my local dealer for $160. It fits better than most of the jackets I have tried on. Although I normally wear a 52/2X I had to go with a 54/3X because of my arm length. The only problem I have is that when standing it looks a little wide through the back, but this makes it a little more comfortable when stretched out on the bike. I an getting ready to order a pair of the Teknic pants to go with it..............I will let ya know how they work out.

Re: Teknic

I've read that the Teknics are cut for taller people (except for the "Lightning"). The Chicane looks like a decent suit, but I'd rather wear cow than goat. I've seen the Teknic Violator suits for around $500-$550. I've got a pair of the violator gloves, and I think the quality is pretty good, so I may go with the violator suit. Looking at 2 pc suits, this would be a good choice as it has a 360 degree zipper making it race legal. Anyway, thanks for the response, reinforcing what I've heard about Teknic sizing!
