Looking for brands making things similar to EG Fatigue shorts.

I have a corduroy pair that I love, but have feel I have exhausted the usual suspects and am looking for some inspiration. Preferably under £200.

Been wanting a pair of EG cord fatigue shorts but could never justify the price. Got these the other week and they're great imo, obviously not fatigue shorts but still really like them.

I was lucky and got my pair for about half price, I think from Tailor at the Tannery. They are definitely worth it. I would live in shorts if our climate was up to it, but I do wear them a lot of the year and the quality is great.

How about these?

Edit: don't like the new branding on the back pockets. older versions looked better.

Just got some of these Save Khaki ones delivered.

Pretty basic, not worth £90 RRP but well worth it for 50% off.
(And they're definitely cord, not twill)

Tried the 30 and the 32.
Not much in it, and a bit of leeway as they're elasticated.

I'm usually a 32" in most brands, and I'll be keeping the 30" ones.
Could have gone with the 32", they fit like the ones in the photos^
Preferred them slightly less baggy.

Was thinking of trying those, 70 euro for sweatshorts did seem a bit steep. Cheers though.

John Elliott Crimson shorts. Best you can buy and wash really well. Price is worth it when they last you years.

. Hi. Thinking of these, any tips on sizing. Wanted a slightly more relaxed fit? Some sites say size up? TIA

I’m 6’2/3 and 17stone and wear xxl in the blacks I have which fit on the knee and pretty relaxed. Loads of pics in waywt thread. I’ve ordered the greys and they are coming tomorrow in xxl and xl as I think I could go with xl. I hate dick print though so might end up going with xxl again. Can post some fit pics tomorrow comparing if you aren’t in a rush.

Sorty mate just remembered about this. Inly just tried them today with the weather being shite. I’d say the grey fit smaller than the blacks by about a size. XXL’s fit more like an XL. Still a relaxed fit but might be worth going up a size if you want them more relaxed.

After a decent pair of the same style of shorts. Looked at Lady White Co and RMC, but open to suggestions.
