Check Ebay or the wera classifieds for some used stuff. I've never bought a new suit. Managed to get a nice Alpinestars suit off Ebay for 500 bucks that didn't have a scratch on it. Also got a nice Dainese suit off wera for about 500 bucks. The Alpinestars suit retailed for around 1300 and the Dainese for around 2200. Deals can be had, just takes a little digging and patience.
