Bad quality liner sizing varies from short to short

Everything about these shorts are great except the liners seem to have a quality issue with sizing. A pair of Large (pick a size) will have either a liner the size of a thong or a liner that is normal sized. I have had to buy -try on -and return several pairs due to this defect, I thought they would correct it by now but it seems worse, only the “blue” color shorts seem to have somewhat normal consistent liner size

Frank Shorter Running Shorts

The shorts are comfortable, launder and dry well (especially running in wet weather). I’m not happy with the way the drawstring is attached: it is sewn at the back side, and only folded beneath elastic until halfway around each side, where it enters a sewn “channel” to reach holes to emerge in front. It seems too easy for the cord to pull out enough to flop around and get accidentally pulled out while inserting legs. I would recommend loops (like belt loops) sewn on the elastic every couple inches to keep cord reasonably secured.
