Muay Thai Shorts Sizing???

Just wondering about the sizing. I am 6'2 185 lb with long legs. My waist is around 34". I am thinking large will fit but just wanted your opinion. I just don't want them to be too big or too small because I know Thai shorts are supposed to fit a little smaller than regular mma shorts. Here are the one's I'm looking at:

You're more XXL by the looks of it. L would be 4 inches too small on you.

According to this chart you're an XXL.

Wouldn't that be way too long? I measured my legs and large looks like the correct size length wise.

the crucial measurement should be the waist.

Buy to fit the waist, not the length. A lot of people roll Thai shorts up anyway.

Plus, Thai shorts are notoriously small fitting.

I normally find 34 waist will fit anyone from 32-36 waist. They'll have drawstrings if they are a bit big.
