Alright well so far I've been mooching off my friend's dad's gear. I'm in the process of trying to find some stuff that would work for me. Any suggestions I'd be more than willing to take.
Helmet, I'm pretty sure I basically got a free helmet so no issues with that (my longterm plan is to buy that vemar carbon fiber helmet though!)
Gloves, I'm looking at something not bulky winterish, dark colors, preferrably black and maybe some grey. Some solid material, what kind exactly I don't care too much. Rain resiliency would be moot because I don't see myself riding very much in the rain (it's what my beater of a car would be for probably). The ones I'm thinking about getting is the now no longer made First Gear Chrometech gloves.
Boots, I'm trying to find somethin that could pull off as being a semi dressy boot when underneath pants. Obviously it won't achieve perfection, but that's the basic idea i'm looking for. So far what I've found is the Icon Standard boots or the River Road Highway boots. Any thoughts on those or any other suggestions?
Suit/Pants/Jacket. I'm a tall rather lanky guy 6'6" 180 lbs, almost all in my legs, if I could find a decent suit I'd be all for it, not sure how easy that would be for a reasonable price (i.e. at THIS point I don't want to pay the price of my bike for the suit ). I'm talking like the bare minimum would be a 34" inseam, 36" to be comfortable. If I couldn't find a suit, I would VERY much like to be able to find a pair of ridign pants that I could use as regular pants as well. Khakis would be excellent, so would be jeans, or any black pants that short of close inspection could pull off as being "normal". So far I've seen Draggin Jeans and overseas has Draggin Khakis. What's people's thoughts on them? Draggin khakis I'm not sure if I'd fit in for inseam, but the jeans I found I can order the specific inseam/waist combination. For a Jacket, I've been wearing a size 44 chest, and haven't had any problems, I was able to bulk up with like 4 layers underneath it (2 tshirts, longsleeved shirt and a hoodie) and not feel particularly tight, a 42 would probably be more too my fitting, though I guess if I'm going for a tight tight fit, a 40 would probably be doable?). I haven't found any jackets that have noticeably spiked my interest, there are a few textile ones that I like but for the most part the leather ones seem to attract my attention more. Oh but for the jacket, for the time being I'd prefer a not strong color because I'll probably be changing bike colors in the next couple years, and if I buy a matching bright red jacket to match my bike, and later buy a green bike, that jacket will be next to useless imo.
Any thoughts/reactions would be appreciated, thanks
