Default Metal Pro Briefs - Sizing help

Little help guys; am I basing the metal sizing off thighs or hips?

I would take your measurements and then call them. Elite has awesome customer service that will guide you.

I know the guys at my gym always ask their advice before purchasing

Thanks guys. I found this off EliteFTS:

Metal Gear Size Charts

Taking into account measurement around what they consider to the be the pelvis, I'm down for a size 36. So I reckon I should go with that, just my legs are a lot bigger than what they have down for their 36. So I was just wondering if it goes off the legs or hips.

Go on the site and contact one of the guys through the q&a section. They are usually pretty quick to come back. EliteFTS Facebook would work as well.

I emailed that Jo Jordan fella, I'm guessing it'll be a 36 or 38. Probably 36 since I'm planning on going down a little more.

Joe is the guy to talk to, he did size me about 2 sizes too big on my jack shirt though. I am hard to fit due to arm messurments though.

Are you looking at the Ace? or just the pro? I had a set of the pros and they were not hitting on much. I hear great stuff about the Ace though.

I've only really looked at the Pro, they're easy to get hold of in the UK.

What's the difference between the Ace and the Pro?

I think I may get the 36, since I'll probably be a little leaner and want it a little tighter anyway.

To me felt like a lot of flex in the fabric, with little rebound. Mine were used, but I could get into a catchers stance with no weight. I liked my single ply brief better than the pros. The guys who like metal gear wear the ace. say it has a lot of both stop and rebound. Honeycutt has the jack briefs, they are thick, nice pop out of the hole from what I can see.

Interesting. I'll read about a bit more, I'll be purchasing something today so that's another option to consider.
