Best Bib Shorts for longer Limbs?

I've always had a problem with length when it comes to bib shorts: they always come up so damn high! So my question is are there any specific brands that do shorts that would fit longer legs?

I've tried going up a size but they become too baggy (as I'm too skinny), and so I've simply resorted to wearing my DHB Roubaix bib tights all year around, last summer was a killer for me...

I've heard high things about Ale, but I've been limited to knowledge about that brand only.
Any help greatly appreciated in advance

    Castelli & sportful come up skinny.

    Castelli tends to be fractionally shorter in cut.

    For a bit more, rapha smalls and xs tends to be on the longer side; the pro range is for proper cycling skinny people.

    Santini Edge from Prendas are long enough in the leg for me at 6'4", 32" waist, size large.

    Assos do a long leg version of their shorts and i think Rapha do as well with some of their shorts

    The Endura Pro SL260s discussed in a recent thread are also available in a long leg version.
  • I'm 6ft 2" and my XL La Passione summer bibs are long. I'm currently 95kg :shock:
