I bought some knickers from Nashbar, their house brand on sale. Not a great fit, but OK for the money. I guess I got suckered by the copy which described the C pants as being "C for Cargo, Commuting, Courier", all Cs I related to. They did not mention Capri, haha.
Functionally, knickers keep knees warm in cooler temps which is sort of important in avoiding knee injury. Warm knees are happy knees. Pants that cover knees and can't get caught between the chain and chainwheels are good for biking.
If you look more manly in tights than in knickers, you are proportioned differently than me. I prefer pants that leave something to the imagination, if you get my drift.
