A little pre-track background. My ex bought me a custom full suit a couple years ago. I wore it once or twice. Heroic...hmmm...I don't want to slam 'em, because I think they have a good design, but let's just say they have had some teething issues and some major QC issues, too. Like I ordered Kang, but got Cow. They made good on the mistake, though. Forgivable. The short sleeves, though....that's ridiculous. Just look at how short those sleeves are! Ok, fine, whatever, I'm wearing gloves most the time with the suit.
Then on the way from LA to BW it got COLD. Really cold. then I looked down and the zippers had split. Jesus Christ.
Rode the rest of the way to Buttonwillow freezing my ass off. Then spent three hours on a craptacularly bad internet connection googling 'how to fix a broken zipper'. I ended up mending it, just barely, but was stressing quite a bit thinking what the hell I'd do at the track if it split open again.
