Flight Suit, Khaki, 2xWell, I've hit the first significant setback of the GB uniform which is: military flight suits apparently run two sizes smaller than the rest of the universe.

Specifically, I bought a 2x flight suit, as pictured here ... and it would be a terrific fit for somebody 6" tall and 180-250 lbs. Unfortunately, I'm both taller and heavier, and so while I can technically get the thing on, doing so requires breaking one elbow to get my arm completely behind my back, leaving the zipper open to just over my navel, and coping with the second-worst wedgie I've ever experienced.

So, yeah ... time for a new flight suit. Fortunately, I've found the one place in the universe that has khaki in 4x and so a replacement is on the way (my other choices were either khaki 3x, which is a risky bet sizewise, or navy 4x, which would work for a Ghostbusters II uniform, but I'm trying to stick with a more classic look). Unfortunately, the place I bought the 2x from doesn't take returns.

So I'm offering to anybody out there who might be interested: one khaki flight suit, size 2x, in new condition with all tags still attached, for $15 + shipping ($5 US, $10 abroad), to try to cut my losses a little. If you're of the right size and looking for a good start to your Ghostbusters uniform (or just want a very comfy outfit to perform janitorial duties in), just let me know! :)

If I don't get any nibbles within the next few days, I'll toss it up to eBay.

EDIT: Looks like Yippee got dibs. Sorry!

Hmm! I'd been considering looking for a flight suit for a tiger partial suit we have. But 2XL is too small for ya? Anyway, I am interested.

Heyas! Shoot me an e-mail at thegneech@gmail.com and we'll work out the details. :) Any chance you'll be at AC?

I'll be at AC, yup! With bunny and possibly another bunny too.

I don't think that Top Gun Wannabe's haircut is regulation. :)

He needs to shave his chest, too. At least around the neck, if he's going to try that look.

That actually makes sense, given that both the air force and navy seek really small people to be their fighter pilots. It must save money to make the cockpits smaller.

See "Rocket Girls", an amazingly hard sci-fi anime series if you can get past the 15 year old girl astronauts. :)

Is this already taken?

Looks like Yippee got dibs first, sorry!
