Small company leather suits question
So I am looking into getting a suit for next year and a buddy of mine mentioned a company off of ebay where he got his suit for much cheaper.. obviously. I was immediately skeptical because i have never heard of the company who makes the suits but ended up doing some research anyways. They are a small company in the U.S. that makes leather racing suits with 1.3mm premium milled leather and use CE certified protective armor. They make suits that can either be completely custom or mimic the big brands such a Dianese, Aplinestars, BMW, etc. Although it seems the material components closely match what the big brands use I cant help but think something must be off for the price to be about half of what Dianese cost. I would have never thought to even consider buying "off-brand" safety gear but this got me thinking a bit. Any thoughts on this?
