gear for hard to fit riders

I'm new. Hello all. Question. I'm a short stocky guy. I'm having a hell of a time finding leather gear that fits. I got bigger legs and arms that average. Anyone have experience finding gear that fits. I just had to return a damn nice Fieldsheer jacket because it was too tight

Wintex is one brand that makes "short" sizes. I have a pair of their pants and am satisfied with them. Newenough.com used to carry them but no longer does. I think a search for Wintex will get you something. Good luck.

Partaymon,

It was a size 42 Super sport jacket. I loved the thing but there was no way it was going to work. My arms would have gone numb due to lack of circulation. A 44 would have cured the shoulder problem but the sleeves would have bee way too long.

Thanks for the wintrex tip. I'll start looking
