Musto MPX salopette sizing suggestion

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

could you help me to find the correct sizing for a Musto MPX salopette? (I can't found a reseller next to me)

I'm 1.87mt height and 72kg (quiete tall and thin).

Looking to the size table on the official website (https://www.musto.com/it_IT/size-guide.html#mwtops) Large size should be the right size for me (especially for the height)

but I've read the brand fit is quiete large and I'm worried about the salopette could be too large on the legs.

Maybe with adjustable braces also the M size should be ok? 

I'm taking of UK sizing (I don't know is USA sizing is different...)

 

Thanks

I'm 6'2" and L is good length wise, but pretty wide, especially in the hips.

I'm basically exactly the same size and have them in an L.

Little baggy in the hips/legs but easy to move around in

It arrived yesterday and the fit is OK.

As you have told it's a little baggy in the hips/legs but it's ok with height and chest.

 

Thanks a lot for the help guys.

Musto gear is usually perfectly sized for Mr. Potatohead. 

If you want something for an athletic build, Slam seems to be a better choice. If you really want Musto, then pick the length that fits. Whatever length that is, it will be cut so big in the body that you could share it with friends anyway. Once you find yourself in a multi-person tent, two or three extra bodies worth of bagginess probably doesn't matter much.

Switched from Musto to Slam.  Agree Musto for the Michelin Man/Mr. Potato Head and the Slam is much better for a no butt guy.

Is the Slam built to the same quality as Musto? 

Zhik is another option for the athletic build, Isotak 2 or Ocean.

Hey Musto,

If you are listening, how about tall sizes.

I don't think anyone makes the same quality level and overall performance - but what you get is a garment suitable for you and several friends at twice the price of everyone else's.

Keith - how about making something using about 2xPI less Goretex for half the price?

i think the Top level Mustang gear is as good as Musto MPX, and possibly better.

it runs big, but i would say it is not as biased towards stocky people as Musto is

Remember that you move and sit and hock and kneel in these a lot. When between two sizes, I’d always go for the larger one.
