Cycling Shorts

Just bought my first pair for £12.99 is this a good deal? Also do you folks wear underwear or go commando? Finally what socks (if any) do you wear too.

Bit of a weird set of questions but never worn Lycra before.

Here's a recent thread regarding your shorts question.

As to socks.. which ever pair comes out of the sock drawer first..

Black socks are frowned upon. However I wear black sports socks through the winter and when it's raining and white socks on dry summer days.
I don't get this fashion faux pas.

I always wear black/dark grey socks. Black sorts, black shoes but white socks surely that's a bit eighties.

White shoes then I would wear white socks.

Yeah same here. To hell with the sock Nazis. Sometimes I wear red socks and you know what? I don't care.

For one reason and another I have put a fair bit of weight on over the past 4 months and my backside looks even bigger in cycling shorts. I have now taken to wearing baggy shorts until I can get to a more sensible size.

I always wear white socks with shorts, baggy or tight!
