    According to their fb page their website is http://www.curvento.com/, this goes live tomorrow according to the webpage...

    Looking at the pictures in the gallery it appears to be more style over purpose type stuff.
    I would like to be proven wrong, but won't be betting my own money.

    I took a punt and ordered a single piece suit from ebay. Custom sized. You had to send about 30 measurements.
    I got to pick the colours ( everything black ). I took out all pockets except the inner. I picked hump size. The bonus for me was I am tall with long legs and arms but didn't need buy a massive suit size. Suit is actually a lot better than I expected and was cheaper than a stock suit.
    They did a lot of style 2piece and 1 or jackets.

    EDIT - wasn't ebay might have been tardme trader as it not on paypal receipts.

    Quick search shows Curvento company was NZ registerd just a week ago.

    One of his products resembles REV'IT GT-R jacket. Source attached for comparison.

    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.

    possible it is - though the same factory often provides the same or similar gear to varying customers. could be the exact same jacket made at the same factory in pakistan / thailand / china but provided to anyone who can them modify colours / cut / logo placement.

    No harm in asking a question about the similarities to see what they say I guess

    No, I'm not saying it's a similar photo of a similar jacket. It's literally exactly the same photo, with the logos photoshopped out. That's dodgy as fuck.

    edit: Here is a diff image, which shows in pink the differences between the two images at a pixel level. It is literally the same picture with the logos digitally removed.

    You sure the logos weren't photoshopped in?
