We have had some problems with our manufacturer and have thus priced our fight shorts to move! The problem we had is that we ordered XXL and XL sized shorts but they did not send them and would not do the right thing to fix the problem. Our loss is your gain!! If we find an ethical manufacturer in the future and have more of these exact shorts made then the price will return to $30 plus shipping. However right now you can get these shorts for only $12 plus shipping, while supplies last!! THIS IS NOT A GIMMICK - get yours now!
