which brand did you get?

maybe the fit you got had too much stress in that area. that's why a suit should be tried on because sometimes different brands fit differently in different areas. hope this helps.

i see, you're saying from the rubbing on the seat, the stitching is coming apart.

a good leather place will fix it and reinforce it. it's worth it.

Well, a leather race suit should be able to withstand race riding mishap abuse in case of an accident on the track so I guess that yours isn't of the highest quality.


I 've seen race suits with the whole buttock area damaged and there were no splits.

another thought...
is the suit actually "new" as in recently made, perhaps it was a suit from 1901 and never sold until you purchased it...
