Being tall and needing leathers? Empty Being tall and needing leathers?

Post  internetbiker Sat Feb 04 2012, 15:43

Right was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction, I'm 6ft 6 and I need to get some leathers for when the nicer weather rolls round, anyone have any ideas on company's that do suits that may fit me either 1 piece or 2 piece's?

Also I just stumbled across this place on ebay Arion Leathers who do custom sizes, does anyone by any chance have some experience with buying from them? Bit worried about looking like a right idiot riding in a race replica suit, when I'm not exactly the fastest guy on the planet.

Crowtree Leathers do made to measure.

Or get to the Excell Show for a bargain. Failing that the BMF Show does bargains.

And there is a place near or in Preston somewhere that does PX clothing for bikers. Works on the lines of those bikers who just have to have thee up to date race rep colours. PX last years set for next and get discount on the new uns. .. and then the shop sells their old ones at a discount as used kit.
Dunno their name but a google search for 2nd hand or used leather motorcycle clothing may unearth them, they have advertised in MCN at times.

Other than that can't really help , sorry. Good hunting though Thumb

I know someone who is selling a set of leathers and he is quite tall. All I know is that the leathers are black and blue and he is throwing in a free pair of gloves too!!! Want me to find out more for you?? How much you looking to spend? Oh and he really looks after his stuff so they will be in great condition Very Happy

Thanks for the help guys but off the shelf leathers just are not going to fit, to get the length in my limbs I have to choose a size that requires me to be about 10 stone heavier than I am. Also don't really fancy the idea of 2nd hand leathers particularly.
