BOYSHORTS CREATE unacceptable VPL under leggings but are great for wearing with less close-fitting trousers. These fit really well and didn’t have uncomfortable seams or labels as everything is printed into the waistband. I love the Merino wool – these are super comfy, especially for hiking. Overall great shorts: they don’t ride up as much as others of this design, they’ve washed brilliantly and held their shape well.
