Long torso; what jersey?

Hi, I have a long torso, and I am wondering if anyone can suggest a Jersey/Brand that could accommodate me. Could you also possibly provide a link?

Thanks

Bikes: Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

A half-solution would be to wear bibs instead of shorts. That way, if a jersey rides up, you won't be showing any skin.

Googling got me a bit of info --
https://www.aerotechdesigns.com/bikejersey.htm#atdtall (plain, but tall)

(Lennard Zinn's online shop is here: https://zinncycles.pinnaclecart.com/index.php?p=home )
One of Zinn's jerseys is from this brand: https://hiddenbaysports.com/

I have a few pearl izumi jerseys that seem longer and larger than other jerseys. One sleeveless jersey is actually pretty long, going down to mid butt, so maybe try them out...just stay away from Tri jerseys!

Some of the velowear jerseys I have are longer than I like.

My Champ-Sys "Club Cut" jersey fits my long torso with length to spare: https://champ-sys.com/
My Louis Garneau jersey fits just about right: https://www.louisgarneau.com

You've got to be careful: many manufacturers offer several "cuts". If you're not specific, you could end up buying from the same company and getting an ill-fitting piece of clothing. Been there, done that.

When I wear cycle clothing- I wear the AeroTech tall jersey top.
I'm 188 cm tall with a 77 cm inseam.
ps I'm more of a utility cyclist - Duluth Trading has some nice short sleeve
collared shirts made from higher tech performance fabric blends - these come
in tall sizes. I wear this shirt the most often when cycling. Keep me cool
while riding in warm weather, plus are a pretty good middle layer in cooler
weather. Plus they look nice so I can go most places not looking like I have
on clown clothes.

Besides AeroTech, Nashbar's new Eco Premium jersey comes in tall sizes.
