Was out shopping with the wife last night, and tried on about ten pairs of shorts (dressier, golf-style from Sports Authority). Didn't find anything that fit well enough. If the waist fit, they were too tight elsewhere. If they were well fitted to the rest of me, the waist gapped too much. Or as my wife said when she took a look at a pair that was too big in the waist, "You can't go any smaller." Meaning, of course, about the bulge. sigh. The tribulations of the well-hung gentleman. I guess the solution is to get a pair that "fits" and then have the waist taken in. By the way, with so many overweight Americans stuffing themselves into golf shorts, why is the contemporary style geared toward a slim, flat front cut?
