I think he means in mens sizes. 38 sounds about right if men sizes is all that is available.

Mens suits do NOT fit women, unless they are built like a man, and even then they are rarely still proper fitting.


I would never recommend a mens suit, on a woman, with the fact women's suits are readily available these days

what he said.

there are many more optins for women then there used to be. there's no reason to get a poorly fitting men's suit when there are very good women's suits available

Re: what size leathers?

When I first ordered my leather pants they measured me and told me I was an extra small, but they were WAY too small. A small did me just fine, I am 5'4 and 110 lb. I think my jacket is a medium because I wanted to be able to wear a sweater under it. All my gear is by scorpion, I am not sure how other gear fit.
