Shops in St Louis?

I know there's a few around the forums from the St. Louis area, so maybe someone can answer a question for me:

Are there any non-HD shops that have gear sized for, shall we say, "round" guys? 5'11" and 260lbs makes finding a good-fitting jacket somewhat difficult -- no one around here (halfway between St. Louis and Springfield MO) has larger sizes in stock other than the HD dealership in Lebanon, leaving me with the choice of guessing what jacket will fit and mail-ordering one, or shelling out for an overpriced HD jacket (not gonna happen....I like my honda too much). So if there's any cycle shops in St. Louis that might have sizes for larger guys, I'd welcome the info.

You can check with Black Jack Leather on Page (a mile or so east of Lindbergh). I have done business with them in the past and have liked their selection. Priced were fairly good too.

This may sound a bit strange, but you may want to check out Rural King. The nearest one to you is in Waterloo, IL which mapquest says is about 23 miles from St. Louis. The RK in my area has a large motorcycle clothing department. That one may or may not, but it might be worth looking into.

the swapmeet at the Belle-Clair Fairgrounds on April 15th. You'll be able to find just about anything leather you want.

I fit your description and got my leather jacket at Black Jack Leather. I got my mesh jacket at the BMW/Kawasaki dealer that used to be in the city on Forest Park, but they later dropped Kawaski, changed their name, and moved to the Westport area. I could not confirm in my web search today that they are still in business.
