Jim, I don't quite know how to break this to you.

When I had mine measured, by a dealer in Dallas a few years ago, DUI
initially called them back to say they had one bad measurement.  (The dealer
had goofed, not understanding how to make that particular measurement.)  We
redid that one, it only took a couple of minutes.

Six weeks later, the suit showed up, and it fit PERFECTLY.

I don't know how it happened.  They got it right on the first try.

As they say, your mileage may vary.

How to purchase a drysuit from DUI.

-Grab your doubles and drive to 1148 Devlin Drive, San Diego CA, USA to
get measured.
-Stay in San Diego and wait until the suit is finished. (This won't
take long as no matter how they measure you they will pull one off the
rack, hand it to you and hope you go away.)
-Put on the suit (if you can), put on your doubles, try to reach your
valves, take the suit off and have them alter it.

Repeat as necessary.

Renting a small flat may be more economical than a hotel. Camping out
on DUI's front lawn would be cheapest and get you the fastest results.

You can do this all by using your local DUI dealer but it will probably
take 8 to 12 months to get a suit that fits.
