    The old version with no drawstring is my absolute favorite, I haven't tried the new version with drawstring. There's plenty of threads on it do a search.

    I have a pair of forty thieves ...with no drawstring.

    I couldn't wear it before because it didn't fit...but now..since i've gained a bit of weight....fits perfectly...a lil loose but still has a comfortable fit.

    I like the material of the shorts as well....very soft... haha

    I have 2 pairs. Both have drawstrings and stretch panels. The last pair has an embroided patch on the back and the logo. They are great shorts. I dont think I would buy any other kind.

    I love my Forty Thieves shorts. I have the second generation with the drawstring. The logo on the leg is embroidered...so the thread kind of shrinks...but that's the only problem with the shorts and that's cosmetic.

    I have no shrinking problems ;) with the shorts.

    I actually prefer the sizing of the first, as it was slightly shorter 1/2", but the materials of the second is bar non. The second runs slightly bigger in waist and length.

    So lets hope for the third generation they make them slightly smaller.

    I guess the size is a very personal thing.

    In jeans I wear 31-32" waist, and I got the 30" waist size of the shorts.
