Skin suit sources?

I race unattached, not on a team. I'm looking to buy a skin suit (with short sleeves) for TTs. Can't find one. All the skin suits I've seen are sleeveless. Can't find on online so far, checked Performance and Colo Cyclist, I even looked at Pearl Izumi's own website. No dice.

Can anyone link me to a mail order joint that sells skin suits without team logos? Thanks.

I ordered the Voler from Hammer Nutrition because it's fairly inexpensive at $80. It's a nice skinsuit. I'm unattached as well, but I don't mind wearing the Hammer stuff occasionally.

Voler has some good prices and if you can handle the chamois then it's good deal.

you can get them custom made from http://youngoriginals.com/ for not much different than mass produced prices.

I can vouch for the Cervelo stuff. Nice and clean. Go tight.

While I cannot argue with your logic, I do call you attention to my specific requirement that this clothing be sans logos.

I wouldn't be caught dead in this. I'd rather wear a skinsuit fashioned by the Silence of the Lambs guy (posted above) than this.

Well, you certainly wouldn't have to worry about getting laid by any female who saw you wearing this. Depending on your preferences, I guess that could be a relief. I wonder if they make a matching aero helmet....

I joined a second-claim club just because I could get a skinsuit for 23.

(joining was 5 - and if I race for them once more I get a free regular jersey!)

That looks very similar to the footy pajamas I had when I was five. I friggin' loved my footy pajamas.
