SPUDS- The Shorts That Redefine Men's Activewear with Gravi™

Spuds™ is a pair of shorts that combines innovative materials, next level design, with a look that will make you stand out without making a scene. 

Built for all elements of your life.

From working out, to going out, and everywhere in between. We do not classify Spuds™ under a certain category of short, since they do so much. Let them be the best training shorts you ever own, the best hiking shorts you ever use, and still look great with a button down when it's time for a night out on the town.

Gravi™ Pocket System...No more dropped phones.

Putting your phone on the ground, having it fall out of your small pockets... you've seen it, you've encountered it. Devices are getting larger, but pockets are staying the same. We decided to change that. With the Gravi™ Pocket, your phone (even large iPhone and Samsung plus models) is secured against your right hip. This allows you to run, squat, bench press, lay weights on your thigh, and do any other intense physical activity, all while having your phone protected and feeling like it isn't even there.

Gym shorts are great for working out, but not going out, and you certainly wouldn't wear your favorite chino/cargo shorts while working out. We have created a pair of shorts you can throw on in the morning, train during the day, lounge in the afternoon, and still look great when its time to go out.

 

Many shorts have media pockets, but they all kind of suck. They are either designed for phones from 5 years ago, or are in locations that make no sense.

The Gravi™ Pocket is designed to hold the largest of phones (even iPhone and Samsung Plus models with cases), all while securing the device against your right hip. We found this location to be perfect for every physical activity we tested. You can run, squat, bench press, leg raise, bike, hike, and anything else, all while keeping your device secured. The Gravi™ Pocket is also designed to utilize the waistband of Spuds™ to bear the weight, so it feels like it isn't even there.

Say goodbye to putting your phone on the ground, floppy armbands, or worrying about it falling out of your pocket. The only thing that will be on your mind is your next step or next rep.

 

 

 

 

 

Looks light your favorite cotton twill shorts, but performs better than your best athletic shorts. The body material is made from an advanced nylon and spandex twill blend that provides a soft cool feeling. The polyester pocket material is extremely durable and lightweight, while being quick drying and moisture wicking.

 

The C6 DWR (Durable Water Repellant) coating implementing into Spuds™ is more environmentally friendly and designed to help keep you dry. Whether you're caught in a rainstorm, spill your favorite sports drink, or drop your coffee during your morning rush, rest assured you can still move at the speed of life.

 

As Spuds™ were designed to be worn all day, everyday, it was imperative to make sure they stay smelling fresh. Integrated Anti Bacterial properties mean that you can put them on in the morning and still smell fresh into the night. Say goodbye to midweek washes, or even weekly washes.... your significant other will never know.

 

With the perfect amount of tailored stretch, Spuds™ perform when its time to train. Lunges, rock climbing and leg raises are no match. They also are less likely stretch out and become baggy over time.

 

 

 

Even with all the advanced technologies jam packed into the Friiz™ material, they are still breathable to help keep you cool. This property allows your body's heat to be vented while allowing cool air to flow through. No more overheating, even with a material that looks sophisticated enough for a night out.

 

 

From the very beginning we were inspired by the diversity California provides. From the salty Pacific, cold Sierras, and scorching Mojave, California has something for everyone. This inspiration is baked into every color of Spuds™. It was only fitting to work with some of the worlds best manufacturers and suppliers, right here in the Golden State. So yeah, they're made in the USA.

We were tired of overpaying for too many pairs of shorts, that are really stuck in the 20th century. Ugly gym shorts with small pockets, restrictive cargo and chino shorts, there had to be a better way. We are creating a pair of shorts that combines advanced materials and technologies to be made for all elements of your life.

Our Values:

  • Create high quality Men's Wear that can be worn everywhere
  • Implement technologies to make your life more simple
  • Apply next generation design to help solve everyday problems
  • Advance the narrative of bettering yourself in all aspects of life
  • Give back to the community  

Risks and challenges

We have fully funded our venture ourselves so far, and are now ready for production. Teaming up with a local manufacturer in San Francisco that has, and continues to produce quality apparel for years, we are ready to produce large quantities of Spuds™ for you.

Spuds™ are fully developed, sourced, and are ready for production.

We have also been able to keep our supply chain small, and are closely connected to each to ensure sticking to our strict timeline, and quality of product.

It is our goal to create a quality product, to stick to schedule, and to inform you of every step along that journey.

Thank you for helping us make this possible.

You were made for all elements.
