Folks,
I am in personally in china to research to some new fabrics(not moving production or anything).
Meanwhile - all operations are rolling smoothly behind me. This is a great time to get a suit/jacket for the summer. standard suit are being shipped in less than 15 days.

Two new pages added to our Measurement Guide:
http://store.teizms.com/measurement_guide

Photo submissions:
we require that you submit some photos for all custom work. This page is a brief guide on what kind of photos we need. At a minimum, we need two profile shots.
http://store.teizms.com/Photo-Submissions_df_60.html





Measuring Changes:
By now you probably know that we can send trial sizes to confirm sizing/fit. One way to get a custom fit (if you don't want to take body measurements) is to get a trial and then adjust that particular size. This page is a brief guide on that process

Hopefully this information will prove useful to folks considering a custom suit

Wow what an enormous thread.

I am 6'4", big in the belly, thick in the thighs. Anybody of similar body type have experience with these suits?

Have long lusted after 'stich suits but never could afford one, and it would need to be custom built because of my build.

Really would love the convenience of a 4 season one piece suit.

I see you offer the 2 piece Navigator as well. Have been told one piece suits don't work well for big guys, so if that's the case I guess that's an option too.

i dont see any reason why a one piece would not work for you. depending on your measurements, you may need a custom suit but thats very easy to do as well.

Okay. What's the best choice for an all weather/4 season suit? Descriptions on the site don't seem to be clear on that.

photos from the crash:





Very important:


Folks in a situation like this, you may be eligible for free suit replacement.
However - you must have already posted a review with photos BEFORE the crash as per the guidelines of our Crash Replacement policy.
You must ALSO have the police report. Otherwise your claim for replacement will be denied. If you have invested in the suit and do not sign up for the FREE crash program, its like missing out on free INSURANCE.

Anyone with a Gray/Blue/red Power Shell in XL-Tall want to trade for a L-Tall? After riding for a couple of months, it is just a bit too snug for me, and the XL-Tall would work better.

Even swap and ship without armor to save weight.

the Lombard suits come with a waterproof liner. A thermal liner is optional. Unzip all liners and open the vents for great airflow.

Our top-of-the-line stuff does not come with waterproof liners. we recommend that you wear a rain suit on top of all our gear instead of using waterproof liners. if that is acceptable to you , then consider the Air Shell if you mostly ride in warmer temperatures. Consider the Power Shell if you often run into colder climate.

hope this help :)

a new color scheme for the Air Shell:







We will also be introducing "stealth" - an all black color scheme for our suits very soon

Get the Lombard, I have the old Ver3 and I couldn't be happier with it as a four season suit. It's ideal for Georgia weather, approx. 25 deg all the way up to 90 deg. It ca get a little toasty when sitting at a light but once you start moving you cool right down. It flows a lot of air. When it rains I throw on My Frogg Toggs. This is a beefy suit and my go to gear. After three years of ownership and tons of miles it holding up very well. No problems.
