    I'm resized. Finally lost 30 pounds and discovered (checked my height for passport renewal) that I've shrunk two inches. Old age, which explains why some suits are 'way too long in the leg. So my size for now is XLS, maybe headed toward LS.
    I've got a bunch of meh to top suits in sizes reflecting despair at getting something to fit: XL, XXL, XXLS. Can do an inventory list if anyone's interested.

I'd be interested. What suits do you have? Do you have anything that would fit 6'3 190 lbs?

    Weight? It was going to South Africa for the second half of August. Small tour, pretty low cost (I posted some photos and you can find my Flickr account). I was sort of sick/upper respiratory infection. Lost 15 pounds and wanted to maintain that weight loss. I'm moving a lot better.
    I think I can outfit a 6'3" 190 lb. Here's the XL suits. (to double check brands--Oregon's Cleanline Surf Shop is a good place to find size charts).
    Billabong Xero short sleeve 2 mm chest zipperless entry gray/burgundy (XL is 6'0"-6'5" 190-205 lbs, 43-44" chest, 36'38" waist)
    Hurley Phantom 303 fullsuit. Chest zip. MSRP tag says $450 and fall 2015. I must have got a super clearance price. (Hurley XL is 5'10"-6'2" 190-215 lb, 42-44 chest, 34-36 chest) XLT starts at 6'3" and 200 lb.
    Hurley Phantom 202 fullsuit. Chest zip. Two of them. WTF?
    Hurley Phantom 403 fullsuit, hooded, chest zip.
    Patagonia Yulex FZ short sleeve full suit. Chest zip. (Patagonia XL is 5'11" to 6'1", 190-210 lbs)
    Patagonia R backzip. I think this amounts to 2 mm, 5'11"-6'1", 190-210 lb, chest 42.5-44.5", waist 34.5-36.5", hips 39.5-41.5", neck 16.5", inseam 31-33". I was able to wear it comfortably last time my weight was down. Should retry it, except I'm down to 5' 8" and have a 29" inseam.

WOW! That is the most impressive collection of wetsuits ive ever seen! I will gratefully take a few off of your hands to avoid the landfill I would have no idea which to choose though. A short sleeve full and a 3/2 full and maybe a 2/2 full would be awesome or better yet I'll take all the XL's lol Honestly in my 40 years of surfing I have never had a suit that was 100% comfortable and end up not surfing as much in winter as I would like because of it. I live in Floridana Beach. Maybe next time you are in this area (or the Inlet) we can meet up?

    I get to Floridana Beach fairly often.
    For the short-sleeved full suits, the Patagonia and the Volte get my nod as the best. Shipping is kind of expensive, so would rather hand-deliver. But a box is always close at hand.
    Will be happy to figure out some way to deliver that hooded 4/3. For visits to the Outer Banks?

Billagomg XXL Xero are still on hand, and the Patagonia R4. I'm persuaded that the ones that walked out the door will all get wet. Probably often.
