    Long torso / Jersey or riding shirt recommendations?

    I did a quick search and couldn't find anthing on this, so sorry if this subject was already covered.

    I'm 6'3" and have only a 32" inseam, so I have a larger torso. Just wondering what brands you guys found seem to fit a bit better and cover your belt line more. I ride the desert, so no cold weather options needed. I use both the snug fit jerseys and baggy shirts, so any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Very similar build. I hate jerseys that are too short. Best I've found are Fox Attack jerseys in XL. Some other Fox jerseys are too billowy in XL for me, but I'm skinny.

    Other options:
    -- there's one company that makes bike jerseys in tall sizes, but they're too roadie-ish for my taste. You can find them with a search here;
    -- a non-jersey performance tshirt that has tall sizes; or
    -- bib shorts solve the whole problem for you, if you're into them.

    Interested to see other responses.
