aerotech cycling short

I am looking for my first cycling short and is was wondering if anyone has experience with aerotech's tall black perl short?

I also wanted to know if it makes sense to get my first pair online or should i really go to a store to get a proper fit?

Also it looks like they have a few different type of shorts for the regular sizes but only one for the tall section does anyone know how it matches up and if i should be looking just at the tall one or any of them are ok?

I am 6.4 and weigh like 240

also looking at jerseys and depends on which link i try as to what my options are?

i would also love to hear of any other suggestions for different company's

I don't have the black perl in the shorts but I do have them in my winter tights that I use for riding and don't have a problem with them at all. I wear both the pro shorts and the bibs from Aerotech and love them. If you buy from Aerotech and they don't fit you can send them back as long as the tags are still on them. Well if you up for it you may want to look at the bibs also as I stated about they are nice for riding I do 20 to 30 miles in mine with not problems. I have there Jersey also and they are great for the price. I am 300lbs and 5'11" so I get the regular size jerseys and the tailored jerseys.
