Seeking recommendations: men's baselayer top for long torso

My husband has a longer torso and frequently has issues with baselayer tops being not long enough. He has tried sizing up in bottoms to compensate, but then the legs are baggy. Any recommendations from the hive mind about men's baselayer tops that run longer in the torso?

At the holiday season I discovered a very nice line called VUORI. Looking for similar garment, I did notice the torso being on the long side. Fabric felt wonderful. Not on the lower end of the price spectrum, but It's a great baselayer product. Bought for DH.

Mid-layer - I have a long torso and the Black Diamond Coefficient fleece goes over my hips quite comfortably without being baggy. Base layer - I wear a lot of icebreaker and haven't found it too short - although the leggings have a high waist so there's less gap to fill.

Maybe try some European brands? I think they lean more towards the tall and trim body type.

I'm not sure about men's items, but Icebreaker's 250 base layers for women are very long on me in a size XS, so maybe read reviews for the men's version to see if they run long as well

Costco (in-store) has some contenders you should consider. They seem longer than the usual brands.
