Here's a (belated) take on a La Passione set I bought a year ago (rider 82 kg / 187 cm):

Windproof Gilet XXL
Prestige Lightweight Bib Shorts XXL
PSN Socks Lake XL/XXL
Vibes Jersey XXL
Isn't that all too large?
I'm 186cm and 72-74 kg and have M in all La Passione upper body stuff (jerseys, jackets, gilet) and L in bibtights and bibshorts

Must be very loose.

I'm 184cm/80kg and the best fit for me is L bottoms and M tops.
I used to wear XL bottoms and L tops when I was 86kg.

Jersey is a bit on the loose side (not flapping though) but bibs are tight. Then again, a 55-y rider wouldn't look as good in a tight-fit jersey as some younger gun.

Is La Passione going under? All they've got left for sale are just some odd sizes (in bib shorts at least) in a handful of models and colours. Personally, I'm bummed as their pads were the best for my anatomy, I've been pulling their pairs from the drawer over Assos and other brands... :/

certainly looks like it

Here are some more people asking the same question

One comment kinda nailed it, they are launching "gravel" clothing line and goofy clothing lines that would never sell. They probably went overboard and it didn't sail... Shame because their stuff was top tier!

And probably te Movistar sponsoring was a bit to much for such a niche small brand...

This would be a shame as I too have found both pairs of shorts I have from La Passione are the comfiest & best fitting for my slender legs.
