my euro sizing is 42 and my body is an average (male), can you tell me which size will fit me? thanks
42 Euro sizing? I assume since you mention your body size that you are talking about race suits. My friend is 5'7" (170cm) 135 lb (62kg) and he is 50-52 in Euro Race Suits (40-42 US). I am 6'1" (185cm) 170 lb (77kg) and I wear 52-54 in Euro Race Suits (42-44 US). Most suit sizing charts seem to run a bit large, so we look for the nearest value, and purchase down a size.
If you have a accessible (nearby) motorcycle shop that sells race suits, go in and try a few on. Experts have told me that the suit should fit snug, and standing upright difficult as these were meant to fit those in a seated position. When trying the suit, make sure to emulate the riding position with the suit on, and make sure you can twist to the right or left with your trunk and with your legs. Again, the suit should be snug, but not restrict movement.
Tall people like me can make up for sleeve and inseam deficiencies by purchasing higher boots and longer gloves. If you are shorter, you may wish to try your typical riding gloves and boots with the suit on, just to make sure that the material does not bunch inside the shoe or glove, preventing proper closure.
I hope this is helpful!
