For my physique (5'10", 200, athletic) and workout (Weight lifting, HIT, LISS) Rhone has the best, premium, workout clothing and their cuts, fo the most part are on point. The Mako has always been a great short, I have recently started purchasing the lined version. I'm stuck between the medium which is on the tight side and the large which could be smaller in the waist (I'm a nominal 34). I kept the large. After years of wearing past Mako's, I can say I've seen minimal wear to the shorts (OLY lifts give their fair share of bar wear) - I only hang dry, I think the dryer is the devil, so maybe that helps.
