    i'm looking for long but non baggy tennis shorts. Not skin tight and not short. Just standard shorts but without the huge flare at the bottom. I wear XL waist for comfort but have skinny legs and hate how shorts feel like parachutes at the bottom.

    Cant find anything like that. Any suggestions? Honestly the Nadal Capri shorts are kinda the fit i want but you cant buy those anywhere anymore. Well they don't even have to be capri below the knees but that type of fit

    you could try soccer 3/4 pants (capris). i bought a pair a while back and they were basically the same as the tennis stuff nadal wore back in the day. adidas, nike, and puma all make them, and i'm sure a few others do too. they are definitely slimmer fitting than the shorts nadal wears now. really long though, so research your size before purchasing.

    Take your xl shorts to a tailor if you're that persnickety about the way they fit.

    Just get some 7 inch sorts on tw. Any more than that is baggy. Any less than that is nut huggers.

    Just get a size smaller and let the waistband slowly stretch to your size.
