Hi All,

I've been looking at stocking a basic range of suits/shirts for some time, and have now come to an agreement with Metal to stock their products. I'm happy because it will mean being the only UK supplier (I think), but a little concerned that the prices are a fair bit higher than Titan/Inzer.

I am looking to stock one of each deadlift suit, squat suit, and bench shirt (at least to start with), and wondered if anyone knew their kit well, and could suggest which ones to go with? I will also likely stock their wraps, and maybe t-shirts too, but if there's anything else that folk would like to see stocked please let me know.

Hmm, aye, it appears you're right. Ignore that bit about being only UK stockist!

Thanks guys.

Metal presser, and King Deadlift. They're both same price. Think I'd do them at 139 + whatever the postage would be, 6 probably.

Hopefully this will happen mid August or so.

I have two pairs of their squat briefs (one viking, one ace pro). They are very good quality, strong etc. but metal gear is notorious for being extra difficult to get to fit, especially with custom stuff.

Their multiply squat suits are the best competitors to the Inzer canvas. Some say they are better, some say they are not quite as good I think it depends on what your looking for.

I'm pretty sure I'd just be stocking their single ply stuff. Would be able to get anything in to order though. Probably avoid custom fit stuff, and offer exchange, as with any of my stuff, as sizing can be tough. With being in the UK, you order Monday, get it Wednesday, it's a bit too small, send it back and change it for a bigger size, I get it back Friday, you've got your new perfectly fitting on on the Tuesday Happy In theory, but no massive waits etc, means exchanging is easier, and can take to comps/stalls etc for folk to try on if they like.

Suit sizing is always a c**t.

What you offer above is a huge selling point imo.
