Three years ago while finishing up a century and thinking it was time to pitch all my chamois I went on a quest. I went to three different LBS's and bought one pair each of the four most highly recommended shorts. It set me back roughly $500 at the time, but I live on my bike and ride over 4,000 miles a year, so it was worth it to me. My purchases included top names like Assos, Giordana, Diasente (sorry on the spelling), and of course the Sugoi.
Well, the readers digest version of my test is that I now have four pairs of the Sugoi RS bibs and haven't bought any of the others that I tried. I'm not saying that your mileage won't vary, but I found the chamois equal to the $250 Assos but the fit was vastly superior with the Sugoi. Those two chamois stood head and shoulders above the rest. While I still ride with all my shorts, I won't do a ride over three hours without my Sugois.
As for fit, I find that Sugois run a little on the small side. If you're used to Pearl Izumi, you might want to consider going up a size in the Sugoi.
