Long bib inseam lengths is the rage right now. I think it's so people can feel "pro" as I've noticed a lot of shorts in the peloton getting longer too over the past few years. A friend and I were talking a few days ago and we both agreed that we'd kill for shorts that had 9.5" / 23cm inseams. The fashion seems to be dictating shorts with 11.25" / 28.5cm inseams. I don't get it and it really limits the number of shorts I can buy without having the fabric run over the top of my knees and into the crease behind my knees. Talk about annoying.
Don't feel too bad. I brought the same topic up a few months ago: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=92575

Sorry for gravedigging, but I've been thinking about this for a while, and wanted to see what others had to say too. For my straight black bibshorts, I've been tempted to go to female bibshorts just to get a shorter inseam length. I'm 66"/167cm tall, and most of my bibshorts (various companies) range at about 10" unstretched. Grrr. Inseam to knee, I'm 14.5"... The inseam on a pair of Voler women's bibs = 7.75" and the men's = 9"
Maybe I want to look like Moser, Anquetil, or the rest of those dudes with their short-shorts?

I'm the other way. I like the longer inseams. Partly because I have fairly long femurs but I also just prefer the fit.
Giordana are long, so I'm using these currently. Tried Castelli Free Aeros and they came up too short. Ditto Gore, just.

Just to be clear, you're currently unsatisfied with your look on the bike, so your solution is to put on womens clothes?
