    Brands That Offer Slim Fit Gear

    Hey guys I was curious if you know of any brands that offer slim fitting shorts, & jerseys/shirts?

    I'm a tall skinny guy and just hate how I look in my fox shorts. Instead I have ended up wearing some of my gym training shorts with padded liners under them. The problem with this is the lack of pockets and durability.

    Any feedback would be much appreciated!

    Yeti enduro and troy lee ace lines are some.

    yeti probably makes the best 3/4 shirt "fit wise" around.

    Giro "New Road" overshorts are pretty tailored. Meant for casual/tour riding but I dont' see why you couldn't trail ride in them as well. They seem pretty durable.

    Anything made in China on ebay. I always have to buy 3 sizes up for anything to fit.

    Thanks guys. I'll look into those. I did find the Troy Lee Ace stuff last night after posting this and it looked like it might be a good option. I'll look into the rest as well. This will all be for XC riding only so no need for knee pads and the such.

    I'm surprised there isn't more lines of clothing that offer fits between Lycra and the current majority of gear that is offers a tailored fit for XC riders. I guess thats what the ACE line by Troy Lee is trying to accomplish.
