    Maybe consider buying one of the "new" used ones in the Classified Ads here on the beeb?

    Seems like there are a lot of guys who buy suits, try them on or wear them once and find out they don't fit right, then sell them at a discounted price.

    I saw those were on sale at STG. Was wondering about the quality of them.

    My old moto gp suit says 42 Euro. My newer Shift suit from 2010 doesn't say the size. It might say it somewhere but I couldn't find it last night. I'm 5'7" 160

    suprisingly good for under $600. The leather is really supple...

    I crashed my old one three times. The last time I replaced it to get rid of the bad juju. The fit has changed to a more "American" athletic build with wider shoulders. The old ones were a slimmer Japanese type fit if that info helps you.
