Track Day suit that fits a beer lover?

I'm six foot, 200 pounds, and have athletic proportions, except for my hard earned beer belly. If I put on a wig I could go as a pregnant lady for Halloween with no padding.

Is there a one piece that is, uh, forgiving in the tummy area? Or should I stick with the two piece?

All the suits I see online look like they are designed and tailored for a 17 year old high school wide reciever's body.

Vanson. Not cheap, or light, but you can find used ones on Ebay every now and then.
Look at their sizing chart. They can do alterations, so can a lot of other shops, Barnacle Bills, Syed, and so on.
I am on at least my third or fourth and probably my last one.

Certain companies like Speed Strength address the big-person cut. Also, you can go to a lesser known suit maker like Spartan Leather to have one custom made for not much more than shelf A* or Dainese. Their turn-around time is 6 weeks though..

I'm 6'2" with the same...err..aaahh build. I got a set of Alpine star leathers with the pants in a 42/58 and the jacket in a 50/60 and they fit like a glove.
