Adjustment

Is it possible to get my size 44 Tecnik mesh jacket adjusted for a better chest fit. The 42 sleeves are too short... look funny.

Can a tailor help with motorcycle jackets, anyone done it? I just want a nice tigher fit across my beanpole of a body....

Maybe I should just beef up... (6-3 and 180)

If the sleeves are too short....mayn your in trouble. Most jackets only have a 1/2" tucked under and that is not enough to let out. Sorry.

No the sleeves are fine on the jacket, its the chest size that needs a little tighter of a fit. ... :/:

Man , I wish I was 180 pounds again..lol
My jacket is a 52 Joe Rocket mesh and it fits well with my 6'2 @ 225 pounds.

No they dont really have alot of material for letting out but you could try, I guess.
I think there is a tailoring shop next to Motorcycles Unlimited. Call up there and ask Patrick. Maybe he can help you out.

I have option to return the jacket, just bought... BUT the sleeves on a 42 are shorter than I'd like. Ok with gauntlet gloves... goofy with short.


I'd rather have a safe fit than longer sleevse, but I'd like both... and I want to keep the Supervent Mesh Pro, seems like one of the better mesh options with solid armor.
