You were slower......just not slow enough for me to keep up bro. The leathers do look great though. Seem to be well made.

I dig 'em. I think they'll be a good suit, and I'm looking at getting some of my own to replace my "sponsored" OVO leathers.

cool seeing those over here. I had been following his thread on svrider.com as he was getting started. I would have bought from him but I had my first track day before he was ready to commit to shipping and I found a good deal on some used Komodos

I've seen a couple of low priced custom suit companies pop up on a couple of different forums in the last year, most notably on BARF and WERA. Apparently someone sets up a deal with an OEM in Pakistan and does monthly custom orders. The finish and finish have been okay and and most name brand leathers are produced in Pakistan anyway. The suit looks good.

if i'm not mistaking, the price for Custom is $425.00 till October 10th, and then it will increase to $475.00 according to what i have heard.

the perforation is GREAT, i haven't had a suit with the vents on the shoulders and it's awesome, the stretch material is thick but it still breaths better than my teknic suit...

most suits ARE made in Pakistan, you're correct.

the "xs" doesn't mean anything to me because it is "custom" i took and submitted my own measurements just as any tailor would take from you.

it could mean extra short maybe i don't know.

racer, these are on the svrider board, kawiforums, sportbike network, we found the site through the wera board.

thanks on the color and scheme, it took me a while of playing with colors and a scheme but it was just too much so i picked the colors that i liked and decided to keep it simple.
