Default 1 piece leathers for lanky fuckers like me.

Lads,Ive tried on alot of 1 piece leathers recently and all are like fuckin baby grows on me.

Im 6 feet 1 inch tall and just under 13 stone,most of the suits crush my balls and are about 4-5 inches up above my ankles.

What do the taller lads here wear and whats a good brand for lads over the 6 foot mark.
Thanks.

Think Spidi is suited to taller riders.

If you go to FCmoto you can click into all the different brands and each has a sizing chart so it might help find the brand which suits you best .

Scott leathers will do a set for you customised

and I think RST are doing something similar and not much more expensive than their off the rail prices

I have a brand new, still with tags, made in Japan, size LL54 /large-long/ one piece suit RS-Taichi.
If you want to try it, give me a shout, we can arrange something, no prob, price would be good as well. :)

Theyre a bit like helmets aswell, theyll be a bit too tight at star until the leather softens and stretches... they all crush your balls when new, as theyre designed for the riding position not standing up straight... when you try them on crouch into riding position and you'll hmfind a better impression of how they are.

If you go into bikeworld and go down the dainese or astars route, dont believe them about their sizong, the leather is so good they never expand, i spent a grand on a Dainese 2 piece and yer man insisted it was my size, refused to get me a bigger one to try, 18 months later i can still barely move in the fuckin thing to the point ive stopped wearing it as it's so uncomfortable.

Custom, im sure you will be over a grand as obviously they are made to measue, you could be a large gentlmena and need 3 cows worth to cover your butt

but you get custom made to your size, custom graphics, colours etc etc

Im 6" 4' or there abouts and find Alpine stars a great fit. Like Jofass said earlier they were a tight bastard to start but they stretched out. Fit lovely now.
