    just bought these fairtex shorts off combatsports.com
    Fairtex Thai Trunks-Combatsports.com

    they came in yesterday. they fit great, look nice, and im really happy to have bought my first pair of muay thai shorts. the thing is, i was looking at the picture on combatsports and comparing them to mine, and i noticed something different.



    holding them out so you guys can notice it a little better. the letter 'R' on my shorts is not fully black like in the picture from combatsports. what do you guys think ??

    I've bought 3 pairs of Fairtex Muay Thai shorts and none of them have the wide white border and background behind the Fairtex logo as yours does.

    The logo looks like this:

    i noticed that also. i thought maybe other sites had knockoff pairs because i know combatsports is an official fairtex distributor

    YouTube - ‪Fairtex Muay Thai star‬‎
    this is a video of muay thai fighters getting trained/sponsored by fairtex. at around 0:15-0:20 you can see his shorts have the white border background.

    i also noticed at 1:12-1:15 that the fighters shorts have the same 'R' as mine (just different colors)
    now im happy, lol. i wasnt going to buy a second pair from combatsports, but after seeing this video, im going to be purchasing the blue/black/red star shorts today =)

    By fixing the image you've taken all the fun out of this thread for me and it will now die.

    I just looked at the Combatsports web site and even though their selection is kind of limited their marked down prices are great.

    I paid $55 for these when the first cam out and they're selling there for $26.95. A great deal.

    I think the shorts look better in TS picture. I have those and the yellow shorts and they're pretty sick.

    Haha^^^ I picked up the same two items last week except different colorway for the shorts. 26 and some change for Fairtex shorts is ridiculous to pass up.

    Seriously. I've never seen Fairtex gear damn near half off. Couldn't pass on that.
