I typically wear size 48 or 50 (48 is typically snug, 50 a tad loose). All three of these products advertise 2XL as fitting sizes 46-48. Due to the stretchiness, I found all three fit more forgivingly than my typical size, but otherwise were true to size. All three are very comfortable.
For length, the starter are the shortest (but not embarrassingly so), Champion has a medium length, and Russell comes just past my knee.
All three are slightly see-through (Starter least so), but not enough so that anyone could see anything from a casual inspection, especially if you wear similar colors underneath. I got all dark colors (either Navy or Black), so YMMV with lighter colors.
Of the three, I prefer the fit of the Russell Athletic the most. Champion tends to slip down in the back, as does the Starter to slightly a lesser degree. Because of this, with both the Champion and Starter I have to be very careful of the weight I put in the pockets; putting in my phone, wallet, and keys will make both brands quickly end up on the floor, whereas in the Russell I had no trouble walking around carrying all of those items. I have not tried running with that much weight yet. I still like both the Starter and Champion enough to keep them, but I would buy Russell next time instead.
The main issue I had with these shorts was the fact that the drawstring snapped after only 2 uses. Due to the waist and length being a little big for my "Marge" "large-medium" sizing build, the drawstring was completely necessary for me to keep these shorts on while working out. I went to put these on for the third time and the string popped. These shorts are now useful only for lounging. Pretty disappointing for this to happen while being so new.
I only paid around 10 dollars for these, so it isn't a huge bummer. Just be prepared, these are not some high-dollar quality shorts. If you want shorts to pound some iron for many months, these might not be for you. If you just want to strut around Wal-Mart comfortably, or sit around playing your hearthstone and trolling on internet forums: save some money and go for it.
They fit very comfortably, most of the time I don't even notice I'm wearing them which is a good sign. They didn't shrink noticeably any of the times they've been washed, and the color is staying true now 9 months after being purchased. I wear them quite often, I'd live in these types of shorts if I could. Very basic and they get the job done. The logo isn't obtrusively large, it's just there. I could do without the logo but it's no big deal. The shorts have a drawstring, it's effective but I never feel the need to use it, they fit fine as is. The pockets can hold my phone and even my 8" tablet and 7" GPS. Not that you need to carry around a GPS or tablet in your pockets, the point is the pockets are spacious and shouldn't have a problem fitting your phone and wallet.
These would be a steal at anything less than $10 but at $13 I'll still recommend them.
