I've been looking for a new race suit for about a year now and haven't been able to find anything even close to fitting me. Currently I wear two pieces that weren't technically meant to zip together. Not only do they suck, but they fit me poorly. I can't believe I'm the only rider out there with long legs and arms that doesn't have a 48in. inseam.
Are there any riders out there ~5'11" with 31" arms and a 32" inseam that have found a suit that fits them? If so, what brand is it?

Thanks -

Have you tried the Frank Thomas brand? They seem to cater to us tall & skinny guys. While I haven't tried the one-piece suit yet, I do know the pants and corresponding jacket fit well (on my xmas list). My buddy got the one piece, is a bit taller & heavier, and really likes the fit...for both road and track.
Good luck!

Thanks for the posts. I've never heard of the first two brands, and I'll be checking into them this winter. I guess I should have specified that my real problem comes from trying to find a decent inseam and sleeve length with my small waist (30in). I'm all arms and legs with no torso or waist. All the 1-piece suits I've tried on are either better suited for someone 50lbs heavier than I am, or won't fit because they were designed for someone who's 5'2. It's mostly only annoying me because I have a jacket and pants that fit perfectly, but they aren't meant to zip together so I have to wear a really restrictive home-Frankensteined suit, that doesn't fit well, to the track.
Still thanks for all the replies!

Alpinestars makes their track pant with a long inseam option. So you can match one of their smaller jackets and pants but in a long inseam. I have a small chest and waist but am 5'10" so that is they way I went. I only have a 36" chest but I got the size 40us(50 eu) jacket so that it was a little longer in the back and arms, then fill the extra room with a back protector. The arms are actually a little long so it would probably still work for you even with longer arms. I got the MX-1. Check NewEnough.com, they have detailed reviews and 100% return/exchange policy so if it doesn't fit quite right you can try again.
