Expensive, But You Get What You Pay For

A hackneyed phrase for sure, but rings true here. A very comfortable, well fitting, and good looking pair of bib shorts.
I am 5'8", 165 pounds with a 31 inch waist and the medium fits me perfectly. The chamois is extremely comfortable and lends itself to long rides (longest ride 75 miles in these bibs so far). Absolutely no chafing or discomfort after the ride.
The fit is perfect around the entire lower body, with good grip ensuring that the shorts do not migrate upwards. The straps are comfortable and not constricting in any way.
I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of construction; there are absolutely no flaws. I had a problem with the quality of a pair of Sorpasso bib tights in the past, but not a single problem with these free aero shorts.
I hand wash these and air dry, as I am a bit concerned about the iron on emblems deteriorating, but no problems so far.
I got these instead of the "Paint" product because they seem a bit more durable. Very pleased with this purchase.
