Those cheap DHB look quite good / get good reports.

The cheap Lusso (CRC) look better and get a better rating than the cheap Endura (also at CRC).

I had to go and check my waist as I normally prefer pants to be a bit loose / baggy / comfy. I buy 36" but an honest (no sucking in !) measurement is also 36" yet Levi's etc can be pulled down with no belt and no un buttoning - go figure ?! :lol:

If it makes a difference / helps with sizing, I am 5,9 / 13 stone / fairly solid build. I have some Endura Humvee's (or whatever they are called) that fit well, without being tight (i.e. no overhang !) that are XL.

WD :D

Endura have crap customer service and their clothes don't last.

So speaks an ex-Endura wearer.

Endura = random sizing.

I've got 3/4 length leggings in xl and s, they both fit. Leg warmers in xl that cuts the blood flow to my legs off. :/

I like the quality of endura you should be an xl and the same for gore if you're 36 waist. You'd need to try some on to be sure though

I like Lusso stuff. Sounds like an exotic Italian brand but they are made in Manchester. Have two pairs of bib shorts and a few tops and they are very very good.
