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 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

Bench Only -- 376lbs -- 171kg -- Jan. 26, '08 (Provincial Record @ 100kg class)
Thanks for the responses.
With respect to the Metal King Sumo Deadlifter, is that the IPF approved 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..
