Ride like a wolf…in sheep's clothing.

I think these knickers are great. My legs are a little skinny so they could be a slight bit tighter (6'4 185 size L), but I think it's more so my own issue than the brands. These are my first pair of knickers so I don;t have much to compare to, hence the 4 stars, but as far as durability and comfort, I would say these are 5 stars all the way.

Does the fit run true or should we size up? It's frustrating getting the Castelli surprise (order 2 sizes up!).
Since it is made of wool, size up if anything. Ibex runs pretty much true though; skinny legs stay on chart. Otherwise, I am 36" heavy waist and xl is fine, NOT too loose. Also if they seem a little large when you get hem, just subsequent sweating and drying tightens the wool, and this can be done similarly by putting in hot dryer, slightly damp at five minutes a run. This will shrink wool garments.

i'm going to get a second pair of these so i never have to ride in anything else. the first pair has served for 5+ years and is still like new- that's probably 150+ rides and machine washes in these. i use them when it's 40-60 degrees out (most of the mornings year round). completely comfortable on - not even aware of them. never cold in them, never hot, never sweaty.

What is the size chart on the Ibex men's knickers? Can't see it on the web.
