What size am I?

I'm skinny.. 6'-0" 140lbs. Yea. What size would i be for a 1 piece leather suit? I'm looking at Alpinestars. I know they're good, but is the name worth the price tag?

How the can we tell what size you wear. Check the size chart on the Alpinestar website. It should tell you what size you might fit.

I would probably go get fitted for one if you have no idea. Which you can do when you rent a suit.

Suits are a strange thing. So, unless you have experience with the suit and manufacturing company you are thinking about purchasing. It would be best to get sized up. Are you looking in to leathers for a track day? If so, then renting them is a good way to go. You get sized and can try out the suit. Plus, there is some kind of deal where your rental fee goes into the final purchase of a suit. You would have to ask for all the details on that.

Or, you can find as many smelly people with suits you can and try them on. Your choice.

Don't forget to try it on with the back protector you are thinking of getting. Or don't... but, I have enough problems with my back as it is and the back protector has been nice.
