Again sir, you are 6'5" tall, you may have noticed that when you look around most people are shorter than you lol. That's what I would say and XL is made for. Since giants and ogres are not real.

This is a good point when it comes to bib-sizing.

I find though the straps are okay in a tuck, they are quite short when standing and you are two inches taller than me and I have a very short torso for my height. You may find them a little short if you size down.
Agreed. I am 6'2" 190lbs with an average (i.e. not long) torso and the Assos XL shoulder straps are uncomfortably tight when standing and barely acceptable when riding. Unless Assos offers a 'tall' version I won't buy another pair.
Open to other high-end brand suggestions that might suit taller riders better.

Thanks for missing the point of the thread.
I ordered from a place I can return to easily. I prefer tight and will see how the XL's go - loose i any way and I will be exchanging or returning.
Anyways that's a real answer, I may have tried to be funny but the point is valid.
You are in the top 1% of the height range so I can't see how if you don't wear an XL who would?
Particularly since they are made to stretch at the legs and waist. I think you only need worry about length, and what people haven't mentioned is I'm sure you har long legs, not only do you need to har the bib straps long enough but you need the inseam long enough as well.
Everybody knows Assos are known for a tight fit, I'm sure they will be tight enough.
I have a 32" waist and usually wear a medium in all other brands of bibs (i.e., Pearl Izumi, Capo, Squadra, etc etc).
In Assos, I am a medium in the ss13 bibs and a medium in the thermal bibs.
I tried the Mille bibs with the regular length legs (in a Medium), and while they fit well, the legs were too long for my taste (I prefer the Belgian tan line; i.e., Hoogerland, et al).
Anyway, I had the same process of discovery with Assos and I hope this helps. The garments are well worth the journey.

same here. 5'8" 150lbs and wear medium in bib shorts. the winter bib tights tend to be more difficult to fit because of the length of the tights. it takes some time to get into any of the tights. knickers are less troublesome, and shorts are relatively easy. i could probably get into a size small, but have never tried...only in the LL716 which was so tight that it pulled on the shoulders and left a mark after taking it off. so i always seem to get medium.

At risk of making this thread worse....
Are you sure about your Desoto bibs being medium?
I ordered a medium size 400 mile bib short (based on their size chart) and had to return them for large.
I am 5 10" and range from 155-150 lbs. depending on miles ridden and beers consumed.
Most shorts I wear medium and a few require large.
Someone 6 5" wearing medium seems odd, perhaps their sizing has changed.
