"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."
Ernest Hemingwayemail me if google hasn't got the answer..
FYI I’m 5’7”, athletic build, cyclist thighs & approx 160 pounds after lunch. All things equal it should be harder for me to find clothes than you, but the difference is in experience & attitude.
So what labels?
For me, Rapha fits me very well & hence I wear a lot of their gear on & off the bike.
I also find that Japanese, Italian & French labels made for their country (not export) also works for me.
As for suits or tailored clothing, MTO or bespoke as there are too many inconsistencies with OTR.
I mention attitude & experience.
Attitude - think tall not short.
Experience - I understand my proportions & what works for me.
I have no idea where you live or your demographic, so I can only answer for me.
Another hint - when trying on clothes, step out of the fitting room & use a full length well balanced mirror to give you a better perspective.
Finally, bring a trusted advisor to help.
