Wish list you ask?

No need for thermal liners. I wear my own primaloft jacket under my jacket. For the pants section it might be nice, but my winter pants are usually warm enough (albeit for a short commute). If touring, I wear wool long underwear and fleece leggings over it so I don't need the pants liner.

If the exterior can't be waterproof, I don't want waterproof liners. I wear a rainsuit over the jacket and pants. I hate a wet, soggy jacket.

So save the expense and let me use my own clothes for thermal and rain solutions.

I like that you're going to do custom sizes. No one makes tall pants for women off the rack. No one. They may think they do...

Can't wait to see the finished product!

You are exactly right. They don't. I am between tall and average, and on my motorcycle once in the saddle, the need for tall becomes apparent. I'm 5'6" I should not be a 'tall'. Of course don't get me started on the arm length or how women's gear sizes. I recently saw a suit that was labeled with a size 6. My 14 year old daughter wears size 3 pants, is nearly my height and weighs about 120 pounds. She couldn't have gotten that suit on two years ago. Six my hiney. Custom is awesome.

Ugh - don't get me started on "tall".... I have come to expect that for everything I buy off the shelf I'm going to hand over to my seamstress to immediately add 4" to the legs. Really sucks when you alter new "waterproof" pants only to find out that they're not waterproof
