    I bought the 4" inseam trunks from B&S and keep telling myself I'm going to get in shape to wear them. Today I had an entire medium BBQ Chicken pizza by myself. [​IMG]

    I was looking for something similar and ended up getting a pair from a company that supplies lifeguards. I can't remember what they were called but they were 20 bucks, plain red and fitted.

    Their website is totally useless. Any advice with those guys?

    It looks like they recently updated their website to even worse than their previous one. The website used to be an ugly wall of text, but it was way more helpful than their current, and listed all the cuts, pictures, colors, and other options you could order. I would give them a call or shoot them an email with your requests and see what they can do or offer.

    orlebar brown - setter or bulldog versions

    Yeah, nothing says INEXPENSIVE like pure polyester shorts for more than two hundred effing dollars! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I like Orlebar for their side cinches and trim, cropped cuts, but the pricing is just offensive so I refuse to support them.

    OP, I've got two pairs of swim shorts I like, one by Lululemon (completely unbranded except for a penny-sized circle with their symbol in it on the rear by the bottom hem) and one by RLX. They're both slim in the leg, both long enough there's no danger of ever exposing too much but shorter than all those nasty looking baggy boardshorts Billabong and Volcom make, and both have elasticized waists so you don't have to deal with stupid tie-up laces at the front.

    I'm still on the lookout for a nice pair of side cinch swim trunks, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay Orlebar Brown for them. Anybody know another brand that makes these? I've only seen one pair, ever, and they were Comme des Garcons ... even more expensive than Orlebar [​IMG]

    Yeah - can tell that. I'm definitely not the model in the photos, but I've got a respectable amount of definition and no jiggle anywhere unsightly.

    You did size up though? I'm a 33/34 waist as well, so that's good to know about going with the 36 (non-stretch, i assume?)

    Pretty much size up two. I made the mistake of going with the 30 (I'm a 31) thinking 32 would of been too loose, I would need a 34. 30 fit but was balls tight and these were the "stretch"

    P&R make quality stuff though (the swim trunks at least)

    Haha yeah, I get so many compliments on my 4" checkered P&R's. Most guys get pissed though that their girl is staring. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Boardshorts are for under 18 or if you just have no body whatsoever.
