I've heard that using glove oil (baseball glove) is pretty good for breaking the suits in and softening up the leather.

yes it is normal. 2pc suit jackets are cut higher that a street jacket. As for the heat. Looks like you got a perforated suit. When you ride it will flow air.

Yeah, its preforated really well.. didnt ride on the street tho, do people do that? lol

What is usually worn underneath? wife beater and boxers or what?

One more thing, the jacket fits pretty snug, I like that. But I dont know if I can fit a back protector in there, is it recommended? If so any suggestions?

You actually want to put something between your skin and the suit, even though it might seem like it would be hotter with more fabric. Get some UnderArmour (or the generic version) that wicks away moisture. It'll help keep you cool and it'll also keep the lining of the suit from sticking to you and possibly chafing.

I wear my suit every time I ride. Remember it is leather so it will stretch some as it breaks in so a back protector should fit in ok. Under armour works well. Or boxers and a t-shirt.

Couldnt really beat the price of $480, it came in today. Looks really nice and of good quality. But what do I know this is my first suit.

the flex suit is actually a few hundred more....but for $480 for your 2 piece.....it's a great first suit imo.
