What 3/4 length fitted (not baggy mtb) not lycra shorts?

Anything cheap?

Like a modern breeks/plus four style cut....

    Depends on what you're going to use them for. Are we talking pheasant shooting, peasant shooting, deer stalking, or just walking around your estate with your labrador?

    Plannning was too use them for cycling, and then for walking around places doing stuff etc where iv'e cycled too.

    No shooting or dogs. :o

    After something like the pic but in grey or black & machine washable.I am tempted with the tudor sport ones just wondered if there much else similar design?

    Endura 3/4 maybe but they look abit more baggy?

    Ebay skinny "harem" joggers look abit similar.

    Seems like a council estate/hipster version of plus fours to me?

    These remind me of black and white photos of men with flamboyant moustaches riding at outdoor velodromes, at the start of the 20th Century...

    No moustache, and unfortunately I had to wear a modern helmet, but I think you're onto something....

    Cripes! For decades scientists have been debating the theoretical existence of wormholes in space-time, and there's one staring us in the face at Herne Hill, right in the middle of Turn 4...

    Chapeau!

    I do love my rapha randonee shorts when I buy them in the sale. Stand up well to wear.
