As mentioned by Kryton57, I have 2 pairs of the DHB Aeron Pro bibs and they are very comfy indeed. They are currently £62 a pair (if you have a £5 vouchers which are easy to come by). I recently did 8 hours in the saddle with them on, no issues with comfort at all.
I've done a couple of centuries in my new DHB bibs and find them really comfortable.
Conversely I got some of the aeron pro DHB bib shorts and was significantly underwhelmed. Very uncomfortable for me by the end of an 80 mile road ride - which I guess just shows bibs are a personal choice. I've got a friend who works for rapha and can buy kit through them at half rrp. Putting on a pair of their bibs is like having your family jewels given a little cuddle. I might struggle to justify at rrp but whilst this arrangement lasts I'd be a fool to not keep on taking advantage.
I have various bib shorts - gore, assos, dhb, castelli and the castelli ones are by far the most comfortable. I have to say that the dhb ones are great for the money though.
+1 for DHB
Very happy with the GORE bibshorts I have. Xenon and Alp-X both super comfortable.
The xenon in particular just feel invisible, the cut is incredible and the pad is by far the best I've used. Over 18hrs riding yesterday, no saddle sores and I am looking forward to going for a ride again today.
Not cheap, but so worth it!
Have just ordered another pair of Assos so am sticking to what I know.
Cheers for all the input folks
