Swrve cigarette shorts
« on: May 22, 2014, 04:37:50 pm »
Expensive but pretty good. Worn them for 3 weeks commuting so far.

Lycra cotton mix feels heavy duty.  Zip and button seem sturdy as they should be. (wish endura would take note). Stitching looks good.
I got the slim fit, and they are.  They're shorter in the leg on me than I thought they'd be but not by much and its not an issue to me.
Pockets & belt loops well designed.

Only slight gripe is theyre lower cut that I'd have liked, at the back.

I think they'll prove to be worth it for me, though there seems to be a rash of "cycle specific" clothing lines from likes of levi, and others which I would also look at next time.

Have you tried wearing these with undershorts ? I like the look these but not sure they would be comfortable with undershorts for longer rides.

No, not tried that.  They're pretty slim cut. undershorts might fit but would mean not a lot of air circulating there.

(i only tried undershorts 1 time, on an old pair of endura humvels. i found them too hot)

Thanks for your reply. I understand what you are saying about the heat issue. I'm trying to find a way out of wearing Lycra.

Was impressed enough with the shorts that I bought myself the 3/4 version recently too. Seem just as good.
I'm 6", 32 waist: I;d prefer the legs to be a cm or so longer. Apart from that, very nice fit.
