Help finding leathers

Hey there, I've been scouring books and the internet for the past week or so and I've found some stuff that I like. The big problem I'm having is I really like the
Suzuki GSX-R

and GSX-R Pro

jackets listed on Suzuki's website with the accessories, but we can't get them here. I'm not sure if it's just Newfoundland or all of Canada that can't get 'em, either way I'm .

I've managed to find out that they're made by AGVSport, which is based in Italy I think, but all the places I've found on the internet that sell AGV don't sell the Suzuki stuff. I'm also having trouble trying to convert/figure out the UK sizing chart. For instance the size 42 jacket has a 47 unknown-unit-of-measurement chest.

So does anyone know of anywhere where I can find the Suzuki branded jackets online? Or how to figure out that sizing chart?

these are cool expensive but not in context with the price of motorbike.

Yea, I've seen the Joe Rocket ones, problem is none of em would look good at all with the blue/black 750. Where as the AGV ones are pretty much just black and would work with anything.

I'm having another problem as well. From all the sizing charts I've been reading, its going to impossible to find a jacket that actually fits me. For example, the AGV jackets of size 42 are for a 29-32" waist, 34" sleeve, are for people 5'4"-5'11" and for those who weigh 130-145 pounds. I got at least two of those covered, but being 6'2" and 140 pounds, I'm either gonna get one thats way too small and fits my waist, or fits me but I could fit in twice over.
Anyone know of someone who makes tall jackets/custom orders?
