Great Graphic, runs small

I ordered a second pair of these because I like the"look" and the pad is Castelli's best; same as in their "skin" bibs. First pair got a hole in them after only a couple of wears/washes. I own many other pairs of Castelli shorts and the small is just a bit loose in most cases, but these are really, really tight. I ordered a M replacement because I thought maybe the hole was because they were too small and stretched too tightly. I hope that's the case and not a quality problem like the other reviewer mentioned. I will definitely look them over carefully when they arrive. I had one other time when Castelli seemed to run small. My guess is that they use different sizing for their European distribution and American distribution, and once in a while they get a European sizing over here. Anyway, definitely recommend at least a size larger than you normally order in Castelli.
