    leather sizing?


    Found a great deal on a 1 pc A-star suit. I was going to get a 46 but they're already out (guessing since that's the size of the Joe Rocket jacket I wear which is a little lose) I'm 6'0" and about 175-180, 32 waist. Should i grab a 44 or 48 or should I just let it pass by? The suit is only $550.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    I'd grab a 44, I have a 44 and I'm about your height and weight, and it's still kinda big (though short).

    I thought the vanson discount was last weekend? I'd love to get into a vanson but I figured I'd be dropping well over a 1000. I'd even grab up a used one if I could find someone selling.

    Vanson off the rack: 750 with knee pucks, 2001 Suzuki Team one piece. 'Could have bought one for 450 but I didn't like the gay-assed colors (no offense Bob Martineau).

    The open house is usually the weekend after Thanksgiving, you could be right though.

    Most other brands of leather require much and constant repair (they burn through or rip and tear after one crash). I crash, wear Vanson, and have never spent a dime on leather repair or had an ounce of road rash.

    200 is not a lot of money to save your cute ass from the whirlpool.

    Yup, Vanson Open house was the 18th-21st. There is another in the spring, you would be so much better off with a Vanson.

    Neither have I, but I have passed the point where I can ask vanson to repair it. I now have to ask the duct-tape company to fill in the few bits that are still leather so I have a completely silver,sticky suit.

    derek
