Every day comfort.

Clip in and show up to the ride with clean, classic style in the De Marchi Classico Men's Bib Shorts. Designed around De Marchi's contoured fit principles and made from medium-weight Lycra fabric, these bib shorts provide just the right amount of compression for hard-working muscles without feeling constrictive. The panels are also designed with an ergonomic shape and finished with a microfiber-and-gel leg gripper, so they won't ride up or bunch uncomfortably.

Inside the shorts, Elastic Interface's N-Duro chamois provides stretchy, targeted cushioning for your sensitive areas. Its high-density foam is placed to offer support where you need it and space where you don't. While the SPF 50+ sun protection and reflective details are nice functional additions, the embroidered De Marchi logo on the left thigh is our favorite finishing touch. Instead of printed or sublimated branding — which can crack and peel or limits the manufacturer's material choice, respectively — the embroidered logo will last, doesn't necessitate off-color paneling, and just looks, well, classico.

Great Fit

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

These bibs are the first product I have tried from De Marchi, and I have to say that I am impressed. I have bibs from Castelli and Capo, and while they too are excellent in there own way, I have to give these De Marchi bibs highest marks in fit. They feel great when they are on. Ultimately, that is what I consider to be most important in a pair of bib shorts.

I like how they fit across the thigh and leave just enough room in the crotch. You can feel some of that light compression in the legs they talk about in the product description. The chamois is on the thicker side and feels good in the saddle. I can feel the straps dig in a bit when I am off the bike, but once I am hunched over they don’t give me any problems.

I should also mention that the De Marchi logo is embroidered onto the bib. It isn’t a cheap sticker that comes off in the wash. This and the other little design details highlight the excellent craftsmanship of the bibs. They aren’t over the top with color and design. They just work.

Before you buy these, you should note that they are made from a medium weight fabric. I don’t know if they will be my first choice on scorching hot days, but again, the fit is so on point for me that I just might grab them first. If you are looking for an ultra light bib, these probably aren’t for you. The medium weight makes the bibs feel solid and well constructed. I haven’t pushed them to the limits yet, but I won’t worry about them when I do.

I understand that everyone has different body types, so if I sound like I am raving about these, take it with a grain of salt. Quality clothing that fits can be a tricky thing to come by for a cyclist. That said, I would recommend giving these a try. Hopefully you have a similar experience with them.

Even though this is kind of an entry level bib short, I have nothing but respect for deMarchi. Superior craftsmanship and it's Made In Italy. Ciao!
