Nothing too baggy or tight and has good length to fend off the brush. Shorts don't get hot compared to some others. If you're confident about your waist size, then you'll be fine with std sizes. If you're trying to fool yourself, better size one up with the slim fit on these shorts for comfort. Either way they will fit. They were not kidding about the stash pocket. Max capacity is cell-phone, keys, and a balled-up power bar at best (just screw the phone & make your friends drive so the powerbar has plenty of room). Good shorts, would not hesitate to buy another pair.
