About

We always make trade-offs when we buy shorts. Maybe we love the fabric, but hate the length. Or we love the fit, but hate the design.

You shouldn't have to compromise, and at Woodies we guarantee a perfect fit, and you design shorts that you'll love. 

Our new performance fabric will have you looking sharp, staying clean and feeling comfortable.

Prone to spills? If you're anything like us, the answer is yes. Our shorts are stain repellent

Our Perfect Fit Guarantee is what you'll come to love most. If on your first try something doesn't feel right, we'll send you a complimentary remake!

We can accomodate any waist size and any short length.

Enjoy a full range of unconstrained movement with our smart stretch fabric.

Maintain a clean look even after a rigorous bike ride. Our shorts are wrinkle resistant

These characteristics, along with a host of other features (think: moisture wicking, quick drying), make The Performance Shorts from Woodies an easy yes!

 These shorts are built to last. We've reinforced the crotch seam, bar tacked points of stress, and used premium hardware, like Ykk zippers.

Our fabric is a majority cotton, microfiber and stretch blend. 

We obsess over the small details, and you'll love them.

               

 Right after our Kickstarter ends, we'll be sending you credit to redeem your pledge directly on www.woodiesclothing.com

 1. Create your size profile - Enter in as little as your height, weight and waist size. We use advanced sizing algorithms to calculate all your measurements, in seconds! 

Like to keep it old school? You can also use a tape measure, and measure yourself. 

2. Choose your shorts length - Choose however long or short, you'd like your shorts to be! 

3. Select your customizations - You'll customize your shorts to your preference! Choose whether you'd like a flat front or pleats. Choose the kind of back pocket you'd like as well. 

             

We sell directly to our backers. No retail markups. No distribution markups. 

We strive to give our backers a great value and through our direct-to-consumer model we maintain the highest quality and construction. 

 Hard time believing comparable shorts could sell for that much? Check out these shorts (and they aren't even custom!). 

Kickstarter has played an integral part of Woodies' founding. 3 years ago we launched our first project on Kickstarter, and we've been at it ever since! 

Our backers play an integral role in the business. I'm in direct contact with our backers daily, and the direction our company goes is largely based on your feedback. 

We've stayed bootstrapped and nimble, we're beholden to our customers, and that's it. With your backing and support, we'll purchase these new fabrics, and get you the performance shorts!

- Jacob (Founder, Woodies Clothing)

 Our Mill

We're working with a mill that we know and trust in Asia. We've partnered with them in the past and they have surpassed our quality standards and have shipped on time. 

We're working with multiple textile patents to ensure that your shorts live up to our promises.

Our Tailors 

To say we have a team of qualified tailors is an understatement. We've worked with this team for 3.5 years and love their attention to detail. 

Sewers are highly skilled, and have on average +10 years of experience.

Risks and challenges

With manufacturing abroad, there is always a chance of delays in production. We have added a buffer in our delivery time to meet (if not exceed) our backers expectations. We are a lean team, but will be working hard for a timely delivery.

We will be working closely with our manufacturers and will be monitoring the Kickstarter closely to anticipate production and allocate capacity appropriately.

If there are any delays or unforeseen circumstances we will keep our backers posted via updates.

Thanks!!
