Fieldsheer Leather Suit Opinions

Anyone here used a Fieldsheer suit? I am looking at buying a Radar suit, but was curious if anyone has used Fieldsheer. They seem to be made for short fat people like me (OK, well not fat, but not athletic build either.) I am ~5'10" and 210lbs with a 36-37" waist. It looks like Newenough says a 46 should fit me. The only bad thing is Fieldsheer says that is a 32.5" inseam and 40-42" waist. Newenough has their size charts based on what they have seen while fitting them though, it seems. Any feedback on sizing or info on Fieldsheer?

Thanks,

Shawn

If I were you, I would go with a 48. My last two suits were Fieldsheer and they both ran a little small. I'm about the same build as you described, except w/ a 35" waist.

Thanks Ridge! Did you have any issues with Fieldsheer, or was it a pretty good quality? I realize you get what you pay for and this is not the most expensive, so not the best quality, but I want to ensure it is not a cheap suit that will fall apart on me as well. I want something that will protect in a crash if needed, and would like to try a trackday.

Thanks,

Shawn

I did not crash test mine, but it breathed well, stretched where it was supposed to and performed as I would expect out of a suit in their price range.
