I know the teknic jackets run small.

I'm 5'10 170 & the 46 jacket is perfect.

You can always get the suit taylored if it is too big.

If you gotta ask you can't afford it.

Teknic suits & jackets run ONE full size smaller than most other companies. For example I normally wear a size 48 in suits/jackets, I have a Teknic Speedstar jacket sz 50 it fits like my other jackets in sz 48. Check out http://www.sportbiketrackgear.com look at the different videos on leather suits specifically on Teknic.

Btw a one piece suit should fit very snug if you don't break a sweat putting it on then it's too big. Take a look at http://www.helmetharbor.com they have a video on how a suit should fit. Now, I'm not saying to buy from either place just giving you an avenue to do some research. Site sponsors should be able to hook you up with good prices if you decide to purchase another suit.

It's Not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.
