DO they make Track suits for small but chubby people ??

I'm abut 5'7 and like 215lb so do they make track suits for me? I went to try some on and well the ones that i felt comfortable in were the euro size 60 but the legs and hand parts of the suit did not fit me well. They were way to large...

you could by a cheaper suit, and have someone taylor it for you, but it might end up being the price of a custom

Depending on the exact suit you should be able to have the legs and arms just drawn up for you.....
My bro had to get his repaired at a place called Cecilias Alterations in Spring.... you may want to just consider that

The usual advice: Go see Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and then go two doors down to Jesse.

I'm 5' 10" and 265. I got my Fieldsheer from Patrick and then for about $250 it altered by Jesse.

Two weeks ago I took a Keith Code superbike camp. As I was putting on my leathers one of the mechanics said "That's not an off the rack suit is it?"

I said "It was til it was taylored." He said "Doesn't look taylored either."

In other words, custom fit with half the cost.

No dude...
I completely understand!!!
My leathers have to be so customized it isn't funny....
a friend who works at M.U. laughs at the thought of me getting my leathers fitted...
(I'm just a little out of proportion lol and leathers for girls suck!)

Head to Motorcycles Unlimited and have yourself fitted. I'm sure they will be able to find a solution for you.

HMMMM... Kangaroo is better. Less weight and more durable. There is a reason all the MotoGP racer suits are kangaroo. BUT the cow is cheaper. Good luck finding a suit. I'm 6' 215lbs. and I would swim in a 60!! Good advice from the people on the board though. I have some pants and jackets I need fixed so I am going to go check out the alterations place in Spring!
