Best bib short on the market?

I have to imagine that it is extremely difficult to design a proper bib short, but Pearl Izumi makes it look easy. It is clear that every detail has been addressed, nothing has been overlooked. The panels are brilliantly placed, the stitching is smooth, the chamois is heavenly, and the fit is absolutely perfect. If comfort is your goal, and if you don't mind looking super cool, you can end your search here. I doubt that there is a rider on this planet who would regret choosing this bib short.

You could always shell out another couple bucks and get the P.R.O edition bib short, and I am sure they are that much more amazing, but why?

Update: just rode a century in these bibs (with SI Flite Gel Flow saddle), and I am pleased to report that I remained pleasantly comfortable.
