I must admit that all my shorts are Pearl Izumi , because I am a 5'10" SWAT police officer and weigh 195lbs. Their shorts are made in America for American sized people . I bought an HTC highroad Jersey to match my S Works bike, in a XXXL and it is skin tight.ugh ! These shorts are worn by the Nissan Trek team , and the price is way right,so I ordered a pair in XL. The fit is spot on , and the quality is top notch. I don't know how well they will hold up, but at this price it is worth the risk.
