Cool shorts, well made. The vent flaps are good idea.
The problem I have with them is the inner brief.
It is tight, be aware.
The outer short is perfect in size and length for a "large", but the inner brief is more like a "medium".
It may be alright for guys who like their package held tight, but "free spirits" should shy away from these.
