So the money was refunded in full already, and i made a trip up to the dealer (corse superbikes) to try on some different suits. to my surprise they had a few A* vectors on sale at the same as most of the internet prices ($650). i tried on a 56 and it fit like a glove. so i bought it.
I prefer how the shift looked and the original $299 price, but am super happy with the A*'s fit. anothre nice thing about the purchase is that i mail order so much stuff that i forgot how nice it is to know exactly what you're getting before you pay.
Also the ebay store does still have the shift suit in size 60 at $299 if you are big and looking for a deal.
