your leathers will loose something in time. Nonetheless, if you are having issues in the crotch you might consider one size larger.

well if you ask niek, you bought the wrong leathers. seriously tho, once you start wearing them they will start to get "broken in" and will loosen up a bit, predominant position is seated, not standing. it's a rack suit, it will never be perfect everywhere unless you get a custom suit like mine from www.Spartanleathers.com

Are you wearing your back protector?

Plus, do you feel the oposing shoulder pull when you stretch your knee out?

I have a Fieldsheer suit that was a little tight when I got it. It fits pretty good now that it has been worn several times.

If your boyz are pinched, you got the wrong size. Get it exchanged before you are sterilized.

at responses! Usually the larger sizes are just wider, not necessarily longer in the body- Ask somebody with the next size larger if you can try on their suit, to see if the size is better.
