Snap, 5'8" and a 46" chest doesn't always compute with cycling companies. As i've mentioned in an earlier post try Start Cycles (more mile range) they do a healthy fit.

For shorts try they do a range by a company called speg. When i was 17st and just starting back out on my bike after an op their shorts were perfect and reasonably priced.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
