If you squat wide also, your squat suit will probably work well for both. Most guys I know who squat wide and pull sumo will pull in their Titan Boss or Inzer Canvas. I'm not sure about guys who use Metal.
Titan's Velocity is a very good conventional suit, but I've not tried the sumo version.

I personally am beginning to think I pull best in just a pair of single ply briefs. I dont' think the suits are what they are cracked up to be---at least if you are lifting in single ply.
Finally ELITE @ SHW..
Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.
The next stop: PRO total.

I like something looser, my canvas is too much to deadlift in. I use a worn out Pro squatter. I had a King suit that worked pretty well, but I grew out of it

Thanks for the responses.
With respect to the Metal King Sumo Deadlifter, is that the IPF approved version?
How long did you have to work with the suit to get that kind of increase?
i used to use an ace suit + single ply briefs. got about 140lbs out of it. i get about 70lbs out of ace briefs
Titan Velocity baby!!!
1-ply IPF approved...
