Has anybody purchased a flight suit from Imperial Boots? How was the sizing? I'm a tall and thin guy (6'2", 155-ish) so there's always a tradeoff between sleeve length and torso fit. I'd like to find a happy medium between the two, so I'm not swimming in the thing, but also don't end up with a short-sleeved flight suit.

p.s: I'm not 100% set on buying from IB, so if there are better options for flight suits, I'll happily take your suggestions.

Thank you in advance!

I'm not much help with sizes, have you tried sending them a message and asking what they recommend? They might even do custom sizing. I've never dealt with them so I don't know.

I haven't seen one of their X-wing pilot suits in person so I can't say anything about the quality or if the suits are completely accurate, but at least going by the pictures they have of it it seems fairly decent.

I have one in a Large. It fits ok. An XL would be too big.I also have a Wampa Wear TIE flight suit in a Large that seems to be a little bigger than IB flightsuit.

I'm a borderline M / L mens, and I purchased one from IB early this year. The quality was fine. I later decided to purchase a medium as a backup, and the color changed to a much brighter orange - too much "yellow" in it. It can probably be subdued a bit, but the color is a bit off.

If you need custom sizing, why not get custom sizing? Pilot Bay does custom sizing. They make an outstanding flightsuit.
