Sounds strange, but some do it. And I've even done it a few times.
Wearing looser shorts over cycling shorts is also good. I almost always
wear something over the cycling shorts both for comfort and to protect my
cycling shorts from getting ripped up when I fall. The Gramicci shorts are
good and I have several pair. But they are a bit baggy in the crotch and
can get hung up on the seat when mounting or doing seat out front skills.
My favorite outer shorts are the Roach shorts. They are awesome (but
expensive). No big seam in the crotch, no baggy crotch, bomb proof, and
they have a really cool velcro fly.
