Comments: They look OK and the boxer brief is OK for me as I was not looking for compression. The shell or body is not comfortable as the hem rubs on the thigh with each step. The leg opening is enormous for the size small I received and a good part of the circumference rubs across the back of the thigh with each step. It probably rubs on the front also but hair and thicker skin may be protecting me there. Now I understand why people write that a more fitted short causes less chafing. To really cut down on chafing the length of the liner and the body should be the same, requiring a bit more expense to match color of liner and body.

Comments: agree with the first comment. The outer short is great but the inner short has no support and generally feels like a cotton pair of boxers.
Comments: The external fabric is the same easy moving fabric of Brooks excellent 5” shorts, but the internal brief is more like boxers and less like briefs. If you prefer the control that a brief can provide you will not like these shorts. There is no control, and unfortunately you won’t find this out until you wear them and aren’t eligible to return them.
