What body shape would you say the Arlen Ness suits are built for?

I know that some suits fit a rounder build and others not so much. I'm preferential to Ride Smart Taichi for the Japanese cut of the suits.

I have some friends, you may know them... Jose is like 5'"10' and 130. AJ is the complete opposite. Jimmy is 5"9' maybe...210. I'm 6"5' 230. Ralph has one...he is 180 maybe 5"10'. Because of the stretch panels I think just about anyone can wear them.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been eye balling the Kangaroo Arlen Ness for a while now. But have been reluctant to cough up the bucks without knowing anyone that has tried the product.
