    Shorts for BIG Guys

    I've been trying to find baggy cycling shorts that fit me. I need a XXXL and can't find any. It appears that XXL is the largest available by any manufacturer. Does anyone know where I can find larger shorts? FYI, I won't wear lycra shorts. Being so large, I'm very self-consious (sp?) so I won't subject myself and the community as a whole to my large body in skintight clothing.

    Azonic, their RHYTHM shorts are on the larger side and the material on the side stretches. Having 31" thighs I find them to be the most comfortable shorts around.

    A friend of mine tore his shorts one day so he borrowed a pair and he has a 42" waist and they fit him just a bit tight inthe waist.

    Thanks for the info, dirtbikedude. However, looking at these shorts the largest size listed in 38. I have a 48" waist. And therein lies my problem.

    I guess I'll just have to wear my normal shorts until I drop a pound or two or twenty.
