- Q & A
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: small
- Height: 5'5"
Never bought this brand before so I ordered my usual small. These run very large or it's mislabeled. It also feels like you got something extra on your behind. Material is nice and I like the longer length. Unfortunately I have to return them.
Great comfy shorts--true to size
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: lg
I ordered an XL based on my experience with another pair of Garneau shorts. I'm a 31 waist, and the XL was WAY too big. The LG fits, but I think the medium would have been good too and provided a bit of compression.
