/ Bib shorts fit for tallish skinny build
Just moved 10 miles out of town and so am now commuting by bike every day, which has led me to realise I could do with more than one pair of shorts. I'd like to get some bib shorts anyway and notice Wiggle have a sale on. Most of the shorts have sizing information, and for my height and inside leg I think I'm probably a large, except that the large sizes seem to be mostly for a 34-36 inch waist, while I'm a 32.
These campag shorts http://tinyurl.com/c5yoemb don't have any sizing info, but look quite slim in the picture; does anyone recommend campag clothing for a tall skinny build, or any other shorts in a similar price range? I'm 6 foot, 32 in waist, with long legs.
Mr TC is 6'4 and built like a racing snake - he swears by Endura kit. I think he takes a medium, and he's 32" waist.
Thanks will look into them, unfortunately not included in the sale at wiggle though.
The italian stuff is slim fit, but can come up short in the body.
I am 32" wasit and 5'10 and as Clare points out Endura is good kit though I am short of leg and long of body. . Gore is good as well.
The Castelli stuff comes up pretty small waist wise.
I found that the "height" of bibs is more important than waist, as the waists are so stretchy
A lot of cycle clothing especially Italian, tends to be small for the size quoted.
Particularly with shorts; I'd recommend buying some you've tried on.
They don't need to be. Most people who try them will buy them without any price reductions.
