    The lone review for these shorts seems to say they run nearly a full a size larger than marked. So, if I normally wear a 33-34" waist, should I order the 32's?

    Hey Larry! It's hard to say which size would be best suited for you without having your measurements. Each company varies to some degree with their size charts. If you would like to place an order and are unsure about sizing, we have a pretty awesome return/exchange policy.

    Love these shorts but they just don't fit. Rapha is using vanity sizing. I fit into a true 30 perfectly but these are at least 1.5 inches to wide at the waist. But the quality of these shorts is really nice.
