Jeff - Give Roger Yazbeck of Picasso America a ring at 1-877-WETSUIT and see what he can do for you.

If I'm not mistaken, their size 58 7mm wetsuits are going to be just the ticket for you. He knows exactly how to fit someone and is a great schmoozer as well. Tell him I sent ya... :D

go for a 60...

Jeff-
I'm just a tad shorter and lighter than you and am jazzed with my size 60 commercial 7mm from Picasso. The Yamamoto rubber will feel like you're practicing "safe diving" and the Tremec coating makes it go on with just a spritz of hair conditioner mixed with some water and sprayed in the suit prior to donning.

I lost a few pounds and am now in a 58 7mm Mimetico and it's a bit more work to work into... but still a great couple of suits.

Hi,

I'm about 6'2", and weigh 230 when I'm fat. I dive in a 60 Commercial 7mm, so what I-P says fits for me. If you were going for 5mm suit other than the Commercial, perhaps 58 would be the call, but Roger will have the goods for you. As I recall Picasso make a 62, as well, but you do not want it to be loose at all. loose equals water exchange. What ever you get, I suggest that you get a suit with seals, ankles, wrists, and face. When you get socks, and gloves or mitts also get the ones with seals, argh, argh, argh.

Best wishes,
