    A lot of them have super low crotches - great for snagging on the nose of your saddle. Avoid relaxed fit, for sure.

    The answer is simple. Don't buy Dickies.

    i love dickies pants and shorts....cheap, reliable, look good, rugged.

    i am of the 13 inch regular fit persuasion.
    although i have some of the 17 inch shorts and like them as well.

    Dickies shorts are too damn baggy. Get the pants and cut them. I prefer Red Kap work pants over Dickies.

    I'm a big fan of shorts with pockets, the more the better. Anything to avoid ever strapping a back pack on or a bike frame or seat bag.
