Question Tall: Hard time finding 1pc suit

I'm having a hard time finding a 1pc racing suit since I stand around 6'3" - 6'4". 200lbs.

Does anyone have a suggestions on brands that run taller in the mid-section? Also, I'm not very large in the center. Only around 34" waist.

I did a track day at the end of last month and borrowed a 1pc suit from a buddy. Size 48 MotoGP brand. It fit decent but was pretty uncomfortable from the mid section up to my shoulders since my mid section was longer. It felt like I was like ) in the suit.

Anyway, what are some of my best options to get a suit that fits me how it should exactly?

SYED custom suit. Not overly pricey and very nice quality.

+1 the guy pitted next to me at the last trackday was the opposite of you - very short & very round. He was wearing a Syed custom.

I'm going to check out SYED out. They look like they run about a $1000.

I've been looking at AGV Sport since they seem to make their bigger sizes for taller ppl, not wider ppl. I've heard good things on their reviews so far also.

You could check out Spartan Leathers. Can't personally vouch for them, but I've heard good things. I think the owner hangs out over at svrider.com you could lurk there for more info, and apparently they've just put up forums of there own so they may have reviews there too.

I would avoid AGV most of the stuff is cheaply made in Pakistan not Italy. I have seen fist hand a AGV suit blow out the seams on back side. Not talking a couple of stiches more like major failure. THe suit did it's job and guy did walk away but I have my doubts when I see stuff like that. How about Pilot they have some custom suits starting at 700.00

I have a similar problem. I have long legs and a 34 inch waist. I have XL Long Joe Rocket pants and when riding they look like highwaters...the even slide up to the very top of my boots or higher.

Thanks, everyone. I have solved the ordeal. I spoke with the guys and watched the online reviews from sportbiketrackgear.com. They are super super helpful and I got in a size 46 US Gericke suit and fits perfect. Even a little bigger then thought. This thing is nice. I recommend it to anyone. Best bang for buck!
