Excellent shorts with a good chamois. but too much branding
I'm a tall guy with a slightly long torso vs. leg length. I tried a half dozen bib shorts and while many fit well below the waist, once I put on the bib my voice went up - so I next tried a half dozen shorts. I feel mfg's these days are trying to do way too much when it comes to shorts and they focus on what a racer might wear - young, small bird body guys, not middle aged guys like myself.
The Velocissimo short has, IMHO, a more comfortable chamois than the top line Free Aero short, which had too much padding and bunched up in the wrong places. The Velocissimo chamois is a bit thinner and better cut, resulting in a more comfortable on-saddle experience.
I'd prefer a little taller waist band, and a little longer leg length, and a lot less branding but I stocked up and bought 4 pair - I don't want to go though the hassle of trying to find comfortable shorts again for several years.
Thank you for your feedback.
