    Their kit is absolutely top quality. They do a fleece-lined jacket which I can’t find on their website which is fantastic for the cool, dry conditions.
    Thanks Tristan, I'll check that out.

    We've been using them for years with excellent results. The kit is comfortable and works for a wide range of people, durability is excellent, and the custom tailor options really help the oddly proportioned (*cough cough*, me)

    Again, thanks Tristan. I've actually got one full kit from them which is very nice.

    There is a Rapha bib which is +3cm in leg length. No mention of any increase in torso length.

    I swore off Rapha once. Went back to replace my worn out Pro Jacket to my regret. Don't make me look!!!

    I got a Search and State S1-J Riding Jacket lightly used in XL that I'm going to sell here #shillingalert . The XL is almost a great fit. I'm pretty skinny but this rascal fits more like a large tall. Check classifieds if you fit that dance ticket. Terrific coat, superbe build and tech. fabric. I wore it once and decided it is just a bit too tight.

    (Glulp) Looking at Assos Mille GT Ultraz EVO Winter Jacket. From past experience their sleeves and body length in XLG is good for me and I know their jackets last for ages. The dog will have to catch his own dinner for a while if I got that route ;)

    I should have know the one item which requires a second mortgage fits like a glove. Assos sizing is fantastic for us tall tubular types. The Assos Mille GT Ultraz EVO Winter Jacket is fantastic. Stretchy and high quality in every regard. The jacket is a tad warmer than my old Rapha Pro jacket which is offset, mostly, because it vents really well.

    So there you have it. Bad news.
