Tri suit for taller men


I've just been trying on XL size tri suits from 2XU and Orca.

Problem is neither fitted in terms of length. I'm 6.4, 200lbs with a longish body. Straps digging down into the shoulders was the problem.

Does anyone know of a brand that does tri suits for the longer man?

    maybe try a 2 piece instead?

    Definately agree with the 2 piece, I'm slightly shorter and lighter, but the same proportion and have the same problems. A 2 piece is definately the way forward and makes no difference to performance.

    Hey friend have you tried any custom tailored suit store, there you can find suit according to your measurement, or you can put your order, for better fitted suit.

    Isn't google wonderful. You can see exactly where sarah_9 and her spam come from: Try googling for "suit for taller men" and largeade's original post is the 2nd (non-sponsored) link! That's exactly what these spammers do when trawling for people to shift their dodgy haberdashery to.

    Anyway, sorry - off topic but I thought quite interesting. Spammer reported to admin, incidentally.


    Back on topic... I'm only about 6ft but the small number of tri-suits I tried on gave me a distinctly one-way crotch. I wear a two-piece and just put up with the bra 'n' pants and 'muffin top' gags from my team mates. Might try a few more suits on this year, though.
