Too many factors. You need to be a lot more specific. What sizes, styles, colors are you looking for?

I'm not trying to be a jerk but we're not going to be able to put together a catalog for you with such little information. We'd need a lot more details to do this correctly. Gear isn't nearly as effective if it's not the correct size. I'm asking nicely now, please do some leg work on your own to give us some indication of what you're looking to buy. Saying you wear a large is great if what you're looking at comes in a "large" size.

Helmet: I wear a medium Arai Profile but a large Arai Corsair won't fit me because the shape is different. That's just one difference within a single brand. Other makes and models vary greatly. What size and shape is your head? Are you getting a helmet that fits your head or one that fits your face? Are you buying a name or a paint job instead of getting the best one to suit your needs?

Jacket: Not all jackets come in Large. I'd say most come in some sort of number. Is that a 44 US that you wear or would you prefer a 46 US? Is there another jacket that you like better that only comes in Euro sizes? What's your price range? You just spent thousands on a bike and a thousand more on insurance. I'm assuming you're able to spend another grand on proper gear to protect yourself.

Gloves: Just try a bunch on at the local shop. They're not cut the same so you have to physically put them on.
