    My old boiler suit has worn out after years of sterling service. Trouble is, it's cut for porky plumbers with big bellies and there's a lot of loose cloth around the middle so I want to find something a bit more tailored like garage mechanics wear. If it had an interesting brand like Campagnolo or Specialized (bike brands) embroidered on the pocket or across the shoulders it would be a bonus!

    You can never tell from online catalogue pictures so has anybody got a recommendation?

    Have you tried chicken korma and chips twice daily? It will soon fit like a glove.

    I find Dickies do a sensible shape and a decent weight of material.

    Oh dear. That's not the sort of picture you want somebody to find on your hard drive.
