I am struggling to find cycling clothes for the larger gentleman. I need a XXXL but looking in the local bike stores and the usual places online (eBay, Chain Reaction, Wiggle, Cell, Cycling Express, Torpedo7, Evans etc), I am struggling to find anyone that stocks XXXL.
Either they don't make too many cycling clothes in XXXL or everyone is big boned like me and they have simply run out of stock.
I did however come across these two site and wanted to see if anyone has purchased items from these sites.
They seem to be the only ones that have XXXL for all items. I am guessing that they are all "original" copies, but since I cant find anything elsewhere in my size, it is sort of the last resort for me.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

But I have used Prendas Ciclismo, who do have a good range in large sizes (up to 7XL) on legitimate gear and offer great service and prices.
You can enter your personal measurements on the checkout page so they can confirm the sizing you have selected is appropriate.

You can, however, just wear what you can get and let it hang out like every other big bloke does. It all comes down to the engine anyway. Remember, in a race with a skinny guy, he can never win. If he beats you, he only beat a fat bloke, but if you beat him, he got beaten by a fat bloke.
Also, keep riding and you'll be in xl soon enough.

I suspect that asian garment manufacturers use a model where humans are never more than 170cm with narrow short chests and small shoulders and want clothing to be cling tight.
