A* vs. Teknic sizing comparo?

Does anyone have any input about how closely the sizing of these 2 brands compare? I currently wear a Teknic mesh jacket(size 46), but am now looking into something along the lines of an A* TZ-1 as things cool off a bit up here. Any practical feedback is appreciated.

I say stick with Teknic. Upgrade to the Violator jacket for cooler weather.

Re: A* vs. Teknic sizing comparo?

All I can tell you about Teknic is that their 1 piece suits fit tight in the shoulders and length of torso. I went from a 44/54 Dainese to a 46/56 Teknic just to fit my shoulders and keep from being strangled when in the riding position. I haven't gained weight and my growth spurt was over loooong ago.

I do all my own stunts.
