I've had a pair of the Equipe S7's for a year now and really like, so wanted to give these top of the range a go. Unfortunately, the leg opening at the bottom of these is a half inch wider than the equipes (same size Large, diameter measures 7.75" vs 7.25"), so they are baggy at the bottoms on my skinny thighs (flared like a boot cut) . The rest of the short fits nice and tight, so the mediums would not be an option. The fabric seems really nice, and anyone with big legs should not be disappointed. Fortunately for me, CC has a great return policy, and since I did not wear, it only cost me the price of return shipping.
