    Men's and Women's baggy shorts w/ underliners?

    My wife and I are both looking for some new baggies that fit and look good. I guess we prefer a semi cargo or board type short. She liked the ones that Specialized makes, but I has a hard time spending $85 on a pair of riding shorts. I'd like to spend about $40 each. I 6'3" and have a 36" waist (in jeans). I guess that's considered XL (?) by most manufacturers. My wife is also larger as she's 5'11" and will probably need a womens XL as well.

    She got me a very nice pair of 2-piece Louis Garneau's (Canyon, I think) for Christmas, but they are pretty pricey.

    Any other suggestions on brands and where to get them?

    Thanks folks,

    Check your LBS and look for a brand called Hoss. This is a newer clothing mfgr. They make nice quality baggies with liners for about $40-45 with sizing from s-xxl. . They also make jerseys in the $20-45 range.


    At the shop where I work, we sell more of this than we do the Oakley or Fox shorts.
