My last pair were Bike Nashbar and they were a good fit but they no longer sell their namesake shorts.
Looking for recommendations for shorts not made for skinny guys!!! The Nashbar shorts had a high waistband so they didn't roll up under my fat roll!!!
Any advice gentlemen??? Thanks
Aerotech shorts are recommended by many above

Aerotech shorts are possibly (and probably) made by the same company / factory that made many of the Nashbar shorts

( Aerotech is located in Coraopolis PA - same as Schnaubelt that made shorts for Nashbar )

back in the day - my best and fav padded shorts were Nashbar shorts made by Schnaubelt
