I've got a pair of RRL cargos which are heavy as fuck.

Interested in this too

Got two pairs of these Muji ones, but would not recommend.
Nice relaxed fit, but material is super thin and, although 100% cotton, poor. As soon as you sit 20 mins with them on in minimum heat they make you sweat your back thigh and get literally wet. Very unpleasant when you have to leave a place.

Thought it was just me Oops, but a friend confirmed this too Smiling

I picked up a couple of pairs of the Beams jersey ones.
So far they seem good.

Yes, those looked very good in your recent WAYWT.

Regarding sweatshorts, I can also recommend Reigning Champ, my go to ones for years. Great fit, wash well, good quality and price when on sale

Big fan of Gramicci shorts. Very comfy and lots of options and colours.
Just got these G-shorts for £48

So good that Real McCoys have made a homage for a mere £200

Great shout!

Love my G-Pants, possibly my most worn trousers this winter\spring, but didn't think about those.
Only possible cons, they're a bit on the heavy side, thick cotton if they are exaclty as the G-Pants

I have the orSlow climbing shorts. Same principle, but lighter cotton. Only thing missing is a belt loop, which is exactly what those Gramicci's have. Interesting.

I must admit I did look at the RMC versions as well! The fabric looks really nice, and metal buckle too.

New ACG ones have a metal buckle and look very decent.

Think the metal hardware is a step far there.

Picked up some arcteryx Aptin shorts which I really like. Not too tapered so quite comfortable.

Also got the beams garment dyed ones but the waist feels a bit loose compared to the rest of the fit. Still like them but would need the drawstring

Think the pockets give those Nike a bit of a Games Workshop vibe

Bought some Aspesi and Incotex shorts, really dig them and will post some pics these days.
Also really dig the CDLP and Orlebar shorts that Instagram advertised to me today, rather pricey though but might pull the trigger on CDLP and post pics if I get along with them.

I just got into Aspesi last year and I have been very impressed with their fabrics and quality overall.
Bit on the sartorial side, which I dig. Wouldn’t want to pay retail prices though, yoox and farfetch are good sources to shop, same for incotex.

I'm a big Aspesi fan, albeit it's a bit of an odd one among the brands I usually wear, but branding is minimal\nonexistent

Full retail price is a bit too high imo, but it's easy to find it discounted as Perloid said and quality is always very good. Materials are interesting, and love the fact most jackets, which is what i buy the most from them, always have detachable liners and can be used in different seasons.

Just got two jackets from them at a sample sale, there were also loads of shorts, but all a bit too slim\tailored for my liking. Same can be said for shirts and jumpers, while jackets imo are more versatile in terms of style
