    Do YOU wear SHORTS a size LARGER than Pants in waist?

    I find I like my shorts to fit a bit looser. For example, 32 inches in pant waist, 33 in shorts. Or is it just me?

    Also, felt like the Bonobos summer weight stretch shorts fit a bit tighter than the bonobos stretch chinos. Thoughts?

    I don't, but I prefer my shorts fitted.

    I prefer straight cut pants as opposed to slim fits, but with shorts I think it's more important to have a trimmer fit, as the hem flaring out away from the knees looks bad and really chops the legs in half.

    If I wore looser (larger waist) shorts than my pants, they would slide down, showing an inch or two of underwear. Or I'd have to cinch them in with a belt, making the extra material noticeably bunch up around my waist. Neither of those is really my style. I wear the same size as my pants.

    This, depending on the shorts. Shorts get sweaty, stretch out, and sag.

    Yes... Because shorts don't seem to come in an athletic fit that will accommodate my big ass. It sucks. Another reason I don't like summer.
