Vanson or Alpine - June 9, 2010, 04:17 PM

I have a chance to snag a Vanson Volante 1 piece or a sub $1k Apline suit both for the same price. I know vanson is legendary, but anyone have a reason I shouldn't get Vanson for the track?

I'm very fond of my 2 Vanson suits.

Can't go wrong with A*'s either.

You are in a win-win situation.

The A* is the GPU model which by my research is not that high of quality. I think I just answered my own question

I agree.. My vason just feels very durable. It's the quality and cut of the leather I guess (thick and not so synthetic feeling). On the other side my A* suit is tailored and constructed very well too. A* is a bit more stylish, Vanson is very traditional leather craftmanship and styling.

Indeed a win-win.
