n00b Clyde question about bike shorts for us big guys

I wear size 42 pants, and I'm looking to find some good cycling shorts.

I have two pair of Hoss Ponderosa mtb shorts in 2XL, which run a bit tight. One pair is tighter than the other, and they are pinching the "boys" a bit. I'd like to get a pair of shorts I can wear under regular shorts. I'm looking for a "true" 2XL, which I feel my Ponderosas are not. They are a bit too tight all the way 'round, in waist and on my thighs.

I don't want to drive all over the place trying things on. What do you guys recommend? Again, ideally it'd be something I can put on and wear my "street clothes" over.

Try www.aerotechdesigns.com . Good quality at reasonable prices with a large range of sizes. They are also on Ebay.

+1 for the aerotechdesigns. I was a size 42 when i got them and they work well. Their sizing charts are accurate and the shorts are pretty good. I've put a few hundred miles on mine so far and they work well. I'm shrinking out of them and the chamois is moving on me a little, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the shorts. Also, the chamois isn't the thickest, but it does a nice job. I think of them as "Good Enough"

Here's the link http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/menshort.htm. I haven't tried their topshelf shorts, i wonder how those are.

Finally, I asked this same question a few weeks back, here's the thread to see all those replies.

Hope it helps
