Tall guy suit fitting

I'm 6' 5", 210lbs, athletic build.

Looking to price out a suit. Alpinestars chart shows the waist on a 50USA/60EUR is over 41" while the height is bang on at 6' 5", that's massive for me, as my jeans are a 32...

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Call or email Barnacle Bill's Racing Leathers, they have been making customer suits for many well known racers and they quality, fit, and finish will be top notch for almost same price as A*

www.racingleather.com

Also, make sure you buy a good undersuit like the one from www.motodracing.com otherwise you'll stick and stink up your new suit quickly.

In leathers you get what you pay for. I myself have a hard time finding anything leather-wise that fits me. Unlike you I am on the other extreme end of the scale, 5'4", 105lbs, athletic as well.

Look these guys up 2nd-to-none in quality, but be warned custom suits are expensive.

I'm 6'5" 200lb and I fit into a 56 alpinestars just fine. The waist is a little big, but by the time I put my back protector on it's fine. Have you tried on a Dainese or Alpinestars in 56ish?

No offense to anyone related/affiliated/sponsored by the links posted above but damn, some of those custom suit companies designs look like they're from the 80's and 90's (except Heroic and Komodo)!!!

Thats exactly what I wanted to hear. So even though the waist is probably about 10" larger than your jeans' waist, it's not too bad?

I also agree most of those custom suits are not really my taste.
