hump, or no hump, that is the question.

Then his experience in alterations will come to play. He does repairs and upgrades to his suits if needed. Your making the right choice. Syed is known all over the US.

Yes. Don't you see that it's all too wide? Leathers are supposed to be so tight that when you fall all protection stays in place and you can't knock your arms and legs around to keep them from breaking. That is the reason that I measure racers personally and don't take measurements given to me. But I see why people buy them with such low prices.

sorry we didn't buy your products from, not everyone can afford to spend 1 house payment and a car payment on a set of leathers.
