Hey there Girls (and guys reading in hope to see some Catwoman leather outfit),
I've just pulled the trigger on my first custom, measure-to-fit, leather 1pc suit!
I've been researching off the rack suits and dozens of custom made suit brands.
Wanted to get the Arlen Ness Lady Mag but they don't sell/produce them anymore until Arlen Ness releases a new collection.
Wasn't happy with ANY other woman specific 1pc suit. They had bad reviews compared to the Lady Mag, still were more a tube than fit our curves (i'm not just a 5'4 short stick) and offered less protection than any other entry level men 1pc suit but for the price of $800-1200.
No Axo Talon, Spidi Lizzard Wind Pro, A* Anouke, A* Julie or Held Kylie...was getting my attention. I've tried a few of those mentioned. Maybe the tall and slim/flat women can make those fit but I want a 1pc that won't have diaper butt or too long legs.
I've always looked at custom made since the chances were high that it was the only true investment worth it in terms of fit and safety features.
and finally I went with Gimoto!!! italian company who have a very modern website and produce everything in house. No pakistan factory taking over the suit fabrication for saving costs. I felt comfortable giving them $1700 and knowing it's a true italian suit with great quality cow or kangaroo (price differs only $100, I still went with cow for durability).
They have distributors all over the world. I ordered with Motostrano. Gimoto - Custom Motorcycle Leathers Made in Italy, by Gimoto for Motostrano
Motostrano says they can order off the rack but the prices only reflect the custom made suit.
Gimoto shows the base price for off the rack when clicking on the picture. Gimoto Suit Designs
ANY of their suit designs will fit men and women except for the kids versions if done custom.
If you ever get bored just play with their suit personalization tool. I did 10 of their designs and finally was happy with the Viper. Gimoto Suit Generator
Some of the designs you can actually do the different coloured legs like Rossi and Lorenzo have.
My suit will take around 7-8wks to get made and delivered. Shipping is only $16 from motostrano to the NY border.
I hope I could inspire some of you who are in the same pinch as me or willing to spend more (or even the same depending on the company) to get one of the italian master pieces.
They've been around for quite some time. Gimoto Story
