Opinions on Suit

Dudes,

Wanted to see what people think of a Kushitani suit I'm thinking of buying. I'm not sure if the pattern is different-weird or different-cool.

Doesn't have the funny hump, either. Maybe I can put my name there instead.

Sale started today, so this is a few hundred bucks cheaper....

fit is pretty good. gut is a bit tighter than it should be, but that is mostly my fault. The rest is pretty good.

Not ready to splash out on a custom, so this is a reasonable price point for what it is. Actually, it's a good deal, in USD, it's about 1400 from 2200.

if i do it, i may spring a little and put my name on it or something, so i feel special. lol.

Hi Colin,
I'm not 100% on that one. But then again I'm the type of person who has to love it from the very start or I wont buy it. From my experience if you hesitate and start questioning whether its "different-weird" then down the track you may not warm to it, and could end up being just weird.
If you like it....buy it!!! Otherwise maybe wait for the next deal to come along.

Went back and tried it on again, with chest protector. still fits, which is nice.


Anyway, the other contenders are RS Taichi. Sale coming up in a week at some store.


regular price of this one is same as sale kushitani:




couple hundred bucks cheaper is this model:




I like the first one better. Likely ~20% off soon I think....

hmmm.....

Nope, kushitani only does cow. I want to say only japanese cow, but that may not be 100% true.

It doesn't look too bad to me, maybe not my first choice but I've always admired kushitani suits.

As long as it fits and is comfortable....lol...and I don't mean when you're walking around or sitting on a chair drinking japanese tea...I mean comfortable on a bike.

Before you buy it, make sure you try it on again and go sit on your bike for 20 minutes (or more)(if you haven't already)
