Baggies shorts for 5'7 guy

I'm looking for recommendations for baggy (MTB style) shorts. I'm 5'7, and find most are way too long for me. 33-34" waist, leaves me in the top of the Medium or bottom of the Large section (in Europe anyway). I like baggy style but don't want them huge (pity smalls usually have too small waist and legs).

You may have to go with bike shorts that fit and a separate pair of cargo shorts over them. Or simply find a place that will shorten the baggies for you. SHouldn't be too expensive at the local tailor shop.

It's possible, but as last resort.

Anyone know of appropriate shorts that don't need hacking?
