Anyone have the Frank Thomas two-piece leathers?

I just bought this set last night. The pants are fine, but the jacket fits weird. The chest size is ok, but the arms are really tight and bind in the pits. Will going up a size help, or is this jacket just made funny??? I don't think there is any way I can keep this jacket. Anyone out there own this stuff??

What do you mean by bind? What are you doing when they bind? I have the jacket (Strike), but I just wear my 1-peice all the time now. Mine doesn't bind though.

Bind = when I move my arms forward, it pinches in the pit and bicep area. I know it sounds like, duh, get a larger size, but the chest is perfect and when attached to the pants, it fits well in all other areas except the arms

Yeah, mine doesn't do that. I'd go up a size. Or if you can tolerate it, do so.

It's been a while since I've worn it, but want to say yeah. Yours is the Strike 1, or Strike 2?

you may want to go a size up. If it's binding in the pits now, it may break in... but if it doesn't you'll be stuck with a very annoying suit.

However, I picked up a 2pc A* Stage suit, and the pants fit great, but the jacket is snug. When i move my arms forward and back, the leather pinches a bit in the armpit area. Hopefully after some wear it'll break in.
