Medium-weight shorts designed for city riding
The Cotton Shorts are made with a medium-weight cotton twill fabric, and have a reinforced crotch gusset designed to alleviate pressure on seams when riding. The shorts have a zip-close front fly, with hook-and-eye closure and inside bearer button. A hidden ‘device’ pocket features on the left seam, and two rear pockets – one button-close pocket and one zip-close pocket with a covering flap – offer further safe storage of valuables while on the bike.
N.B. The cut of the Rapha Cotton City shorts offers a more relaxed fit than our Randonnée shorts.

If I'm a 33 inch in my other shorts should I go up to 34 inch or go down to 32 inch?
Hi do either of the front pockets zip close?
What is inside leg measurement of 34 inch waist cotton shorts and 34 inch waist Randonee shorts?
I wear a size small in your Pro Team bib shorts, and typically wear a size 30" short in other brands. Should I stick with a size 30, or go down to 28 as many have suggested?
are these in any rain-resistant/repelling?
Are there any front side pockets? Total how many pockets are there?
I have purchased one down-size as recommended by Rapha. However, it seems like bit tight on my thigh. Do they get stretched a lot?
What is the inseam measurement of these shorts? The measurements provided are not informative in this case.
