Sounds close to a 56 euro/46 US but the best way is to find a place locally and try some on???

Your best bet is to try some on at a local retailer. Once you try a few on it really takes the guesswork out. Sometimes buying s/h is almost as much as buying new... Best advice I could give you is to hit up Riders Discount for a quote before buying anything


Thanks Uncle P!

A lot of the companies have sizing guides on their website as well, I know for sure Alpinestars does. I ordered mine according to their chart and it fits pretty well.

If you were about 190 I have an old suit that would probably fit you.

sounds like me... you may find not every company makes something for you... i would recommend taking a look at Joe Rocket... they cater to the north american body type {hits gym on a semi regular basis and likes his meat n' potatoes.. } ... i dont fit into anything from Alpinestar or Teknik or even most Dianese gear... so be aware of this...

i wear a 2XL from Joe Rocket {2piece suit}... its very comfortable... and leaves a little room for those crazy lunches me n' the boys do when out canyon carving...

190 you say? I'm 5'9-10"ish 190lbs and have been looking for leathers. would you be interested in negotiating some sort of transaction?

How big is your waist?

I am same 6'2, 210 (95 kg)

My problem is I have a 34" wiast and I am 54 at the chest/shoulders. I wear business suits a lot and never have been able to get any of the rack -always tailor made.

My track suit is 2 piece so I can get a bigger size jacket (still loose around the bottom) and a smaller size pants and zip it up in the middle. Would love to be able to get a suit of the rack but I would be floating in the middle section...

A 34. The length is your issue, the 52 is just snug for my height/weight.
