    Quick sizing question for sizing a leather suit:

    Looking to order an RS Taichi GP WRX R303:
    http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=12996

    I'm thinking of ordering a 54 EU / 44 US suit. I talked to the guy on the phone and he said that the 54 fits my height/weight perfectly. But I wanted to check with any of you that might have had some experience with Taichi or similar.

    I'm around 180 lbs @ 6'1", 41in. chest. I want the suit to fit snugly without excess material bunching up. Should I stick with his recommendation or 54 EU or order the next size down @ 52 EU? Anyone have experience with Taichi's suits and their sizing?

    they ran a bit small like a pilot when i tried them on, but i'm 6'1 210lbs and 48ish chest. so actually, for you, that might fit just right

    Thanks for the responses. I went with the 54 EU. Worst comes to worse, I can always just exchange it for a smaller one if I don't like the fit.
