Held Slade made-to-measure leather suit
Fancy a made-to-measure leather suit? Our Consumer Editor, Emma Franklin had a custom suit made by Held for racing in, here's how she found it...
Time tested One fitting
What’s good These are my first pair of fully custom-made leathers, and getting them couldn’t have been simpler. On their website, Held UK offer a configurator which allows you to design your own version of their immensely popular and high quality Slade and Full Speed one-piece race suits. I was not only able to choose the colours of the leather and stretch panels in my suit, which I picked to match my new race livery for the season, but I was also able to choose the type of leather (kangaroo or cow), the cut (racing or touring) and even the type of lining. After sending the design off to Held, my nearest dealer then expertly and comprehensively measured me, and I ended up with the most perfectly fitting race suit I’ve ever had.

What’s not The fit and quality far exceeded my expectations, but just don’t put on a significant amount of weight after ordering them… like I did by getting pregnant!
