Riding pants for short women

I'm needing help finding winter textile over pants for my wife. She's 5'3" with a 29"-30" inseam. I've tried Firstgear and they are way too long both in the legs and in the waist. If anybody knows where to purchase women's textile over pants, for shorter women, I would greatly appreciate it.

My wife is 5' 3.5" and she has the BMW Santiago suit.
I measured inseam on them and it is 31"
She want them a little longer than street pants because her legs will be bent all the time she are riding.

My partner is 5'2" with 29" seam. The only brand that fits her is the womans range of Belstaff (Google it). Don't know if this is available in the states...or where ever you are from.

Another vote for Savanna 2 (now called Santiago) that my better half has. It has special women cut versions for wide spectrum of sizes available. Make sure you buy it WITH the gore-tex inserts. Quite expensive kit together, but top quality suite, coz you know female bodies are more temperature sensitive than the male body (scientifically proved BTW). When it is hot they complain, when it is cold they complain... And YOU is who to blame

Savannah-Santiago is just for those huge temperature changes with the goretex inserts. And good plus for the BM kit is they look stylish compared to most of other makers suites inc. very expensive Rukkas etc, so she has to take ALOT less clothing stuff with her (my long term experience )

For the very cold conditions i also recommend buying heated vest for the both of you, ideal would be if you get the heat regulators as well. On the very long colder day rides they are definately the top piece'o'kit bringing smiles back into your faces!
