    Any recommendations for slimmer cut textile trousers? I bought a pair of Alpinestars Tour Tech trousers which I would say are 34 to 35" waist and length are fine but although I'm no racing snake they are way too voluminous around the hips, thighs and lower leg. I have had a pair of Alpinestars in the past which were a good fit but can't remember which version!

    Which brands (and which of their styles) suit the more finely built gentleman in your experience?? :cool:

    Eat some pies and they'll be fine :blush:

    Try some IXS as my last ones were a good cut, well for me anyway.

    These Richa trousers work great over normal jeans. The soft shell fabric is stretchy and provides a close comfortable fit without any flapping around the ankles. Designed as a commuter trouser but I've added the hip armour and wear them all the time. A 260 mile ride in heavy rain and they let water in eventually along the zip lines but a pair of lightweight overtrousers would cure this.

    Another style worth considering are the new Merlin trousers as they have straps on the lower leg to create a close fit over your boots.

    Chaps and leather pants are major components of motorcycle protective apparel. You should choose the best fit for your riding conditions.

    UPDATE - I finally bought a pair of Lindstrands Volda trousers (just over half price on eBay). Great quality and sizing is accurate - although a little long off the bike they're perfect when riding.
    They are AA rated with the appropriate armour although they come with level 1 pads.
    I've had Halvarssons gear before, tend to forget how well made and great value it is! Bring on Winter :)

    Sorry I can't relate. Too big isn't usually a problem.
