About

                        

Be Creative...

Style is more than choosing your favorite color. With omversion shorts, you can customize fit with waist size and length.

Have some fun by combining our 3 fabric colors (white, gray, black) with our 8 stitching colors (red, green, orange, navy blue, light blue, white, black, gray). More colors to come as we hit our stretch goals.

 

Like your shorts a little shorter...that's cool, you can do it.  Like them a little longer...that works too!

At the end of our successful campaign, you will have access to our website where you can custOMize your omversion shorts in a new way. Here, you can add or subtract from the length of your shorts (up to 3" in either direction) at no additional cost. That's right, we'll be your free tailor!

We plan on offering sizes from Small to XXXLarge. We've tested the shorts on boys from 4'6" & 75 lbs to guys 6'6" & 300 lbs. So no matter what your size and shape we'll have something that works for you.

 

 Can't wait? Start creating your Om today, http://www.omversion.com Backers will be able to order after the campaign but everyone can play around in the "OM Zone" right now!

Be Original...

Why did we go organic?

Spending summers working on my aunt & uncle's farm had an early influence on my life, including the times I came into contact with some of the pesticides used for crop production. The resulting skin rash needed medical attention yet left a permanent imprint on my life. When it came time to research fabric for the shorts the choice was clear. Only organic cotton, for me and my customers.

 

 

 

Be Comfortable...

We wanted to design our shorts to be so supportive and comfortable that they make an easy transition from competing in basketball to flowing in yoga and then just lounging at home.

 Be Authentic...  

From the beginning, the Transition shorts were meant to feel as good on the inside as they looked on the outside.  Our 2 in 1 concept delivers "inner peace" by providing a new level of comfort. It took a lot of work to get the two layers to work together but we finally got it.  The built in "OM Inner Piece" also gives you great support on and off the court.

 Does your inside match your outside...ours does!

 

 

Be Present...

Finding your OM...it's like being in the zone during a game. It's the ability to be so centered and focused that everything around you slows down or fades away.  

What do you love to do? What's your passion?  How do you explore it? These questions can lead the way to finding your personal OM.

It's tough some days to squeeze in time for your OM. My two passions inspired me to create a unique athletic garment that will help you make an easy transition from one activity to another in ultimate comfort.

Be Loyal...

We believe it's important to grow and sew as locally as possible. We source our cotton from the southern United States and sew our garments in Los Angeles.

Lucky for all of us, this is some of the best cotton cultivated in the world. Supima cotton grows from California to the Carolinas. We believe Supima Cotton is the best material to have next to your skin. It's naturally breathable to help you stay cool and dry.

We are convinced you will think Supima cotton is a game changer!

                                Advantages of Organic Supima Cotton 

  • Organic - No pesticides
  • Stronger fiber - Our shorts will last longer & pill less 
  • Holds dye better - The colors will be more vibrant & fade less
  • Softer fiber - Under a microscope you can even see a smoother fiber
  • Less shrinkage - Preshrunk before it's sewn together for a truer size and fit
  • Naturally breathable - Less sweat is trapped next to your skin
  • Less stink - cotton is known to discourage the growth of bacteria, which is very good if you are doing activities in high temps and high humidity environments

Wash after wash your omversion shorts will become more comfortable. They'll get better over time so...

Wear them,

                Work them,

                           Wash them...Repeat.

Be Social...

Like shooting hoops or playing ping pong with a friend, some things are just better together. Yes, you can wear your two layers separately, however, once you try on a pair of our shorts with the built in "OM Inner Piece," you will agree that some things are just better together.

Be Humble...

Go ahead, get inverted. Do a handstand, jump around or even break dance! 

The "OM Inner Piece"  provides coverage even if the outer layer drops, no matter what position you are in.

We promise, modesty will prevail!

                     Be Comfortable..... in your own shorts!

Thanks for checking out omversion on Kickstarter, we think we have a special product to offer you. We encourage you to have fun designing/creating your favorite color combination of shorts on our website.

Make the transition!

This all started in Nov, 2013 when I was asked, "How's ALL this working out for you?"  Right then I knew something needed to change. After resisting for a year i took the first step. Going out on a limb to make a transition requires faith, family and friends. 

If you have been on this journey with me for a while I hope I have expressed how much I appreciate your support.  And for those who are just joining now, maybe this little insight into my journey has allowed you to learn a little about me.... My hope is we all find our OM/ZONE in this world (I am not a life coach or motivational speaker, but I feel the message is the same everywhere, Live in the present) ...and who knows, maybe our paths will cross as the adventure continues! Until then, 

Be Comfortable.....

Chris

Risks and challenges

I have been making prototypes and testing these shorts for the last two years ensuring that every thread met my own comfort specifications. I have worked hard to make sure that the Omversion shorts move quickly out of production and into the hands of our new customers. Even though this is my first start-up, I have done my research and received counsel from many that have come before me. I hope that my passion for these shorts translates into customers enjoying them as much as I do.
