Good for you man! They are finely made garments for sure. Couldn't help myself because of this thread and ordered my ninth yesterday. The Diamante. I already have the Diamante bibs.

Necro, but I just bought a custom branded FR-C Pro jersey in size small and it is incredibly loose. There’s also no extra small option. I’m 5’10”/178cm and 135lbs/61kg. All reviews I’ve seen said Giordana race-fit is either true to size or fits small, so could it be that they have slightly different sizing for custom jerseys? <— This is true of Castelli US customs... My club’s Free Aero Race 5.1 jerseys are definitely slightly larger than the retail version of the same jersey...slightly different feel to the materials and a different zipper too. The Castelli customs are made in Portland while the retail stuff is made in Europe.

Looks like my best option is to size down to a women’s medium...

The small bibs fit great at least. And the pad is way better than Castelli’s.
