Default Bike clothes for the larger boned bikers ;)

Hope right section mods

I've got a buddy who is finding it difficult sourcing some textile clothing. Hoping someone could provide some information on shops/websites.

Looking for places that do from a size 54 up if memory serves me right... Quite a big lad like anyways.

Thanks in advance

Cheers
Ben

These guys cater for us larger than life blokes...they have a shop near sevenoaks so if he's in the area he could give them a try as well

I've heard that BMW clothing go up to large sizes.

There is always Harley Davidson clothing (H-D riders tend to be 'large'!), which go up to large sizes but it is ferociously expensive

Have a look at Joe Rocket stuff. Its an american brand I believe and very popular over there, it caters for the bigger build.
