I have several bibs and jerseys from La Passione. I must say that they all fit great. Except for the jersey that I just received yesterday which fits not as great, although it is the exact same size as my other jerseys.
Maybe something wrong in the making of this jersey line. I'm waiting for the new "geometric" line to come out and I will order a jersey for sure.
And what was this last jersey...?
This one : ... lue-orange

I'm going to wear it on my today's ride and see how it feels.

Funny because I was considering to give it a try to this new line.
Not stretchy enough fabrics or what?

^ Me too. Would be nice to hear what was different on it.

I found that PSN was too stretchy for my use but like Macro PDP with less stretch material.

I finally didn't wear it today because the temperature wasn't high enough.
From what I feel when I wear this jersey, it feels like he back is less stretchy than PSN line whereas the front is probably as stretchy. Maybe it is just a feeling...
The jersey looks dope though !! With the matching socks, it looks really great !

I need new bibshorts as my Vermarc PR.R are worn out (one lycra panel became see through).
A I have a lot of La Passione shirts I'm considering La Passione Palmares at 120€.
I have already La Passione Classic bibs, they're now at -25% but unfortunately no longer in size L.

How does the Palmares comapre to Assos S7 (also at 130€) or other (Sportful,...) at 120€? Any alternatives that are more value for money?
Bibs need to be all plain black and available in size L.

I would suggest you to look at Santini's website. Check their 'factory outlet' stuff and their 'on sale' items. Great prices and top quality, 100% made in Italy.

Another vote for Santini.
Also - accidentally - Santini jerseys seem to fit me much better than LaPassione. I have Lapassione 'livery' jersey in size M and it is too loose and too short, even worse than Santini classic fit, which is too big in M, but at least not that short.
On the other hand, 'slimfit' from Santini is very good in M, and I could probably fit in S too, with the jersey not being too short still.

For reference, 183cm, 73kg, 92cm chest and 88cm inseam (long legs).

tired their PSN jersey, the fit is good, short and tight, very similar to Rapha pro team. Size M. 6ft 165lb. However, the materiel and design is not good at all, it is super stretchy and zero support in the back pockets. When you are out of the saddle the bouncing back pockets are super annoying. Had to return mine.
