Here’s everything you need to know about The Performance Shirt…


Perfect Fit, Performance Fabric.

We always make trade-offs when we buy shirts. Maybe we love the fabric, but hate the fit. Or we love the fit, but don’t like the collar or cuff.

Well, at Woodies we don’t like compromises.

We promise a perfect fit, and our new performance fabric will have you looking sharp, moving easily and staying cool and fresh.

Meet The Ultimate Performance shirt. 


  • Perfect Fit: We use advanced sizing algorithms to calculate all your measurements in seconds, no tape measure required.
  • Iron Free: The ultimate performance shirt is iron free and looks pressed out of your suitcase or the dryer.
  • 2 Way Stretch: No more constraint. Enjoy a fuller range of motion and comfort.
  • Moisture Wicking: Our fabric pulls sweat away from your body and keeps you cool.
  • Antibacterial: Smell good, for longer. Launder less, save money and the environment!



We’ve partnered with a world class mill for this fabric and are using patented technology and finishes to ensure amazing performance and durability without compromising a soft hand and feel.

Our performance fabric is a soft twill weave and a 97% cotton / 3% lycra blend.



Design Customizations

You’ll be able to choose whichever collar and cuff you’d like, with or without a pocket.


In addition to choosing your fabric and design, you will be able to personalize your sizes and fit.

We use advanced sizing algorithms to calculate measurements based off as little as your height, weight and average shirt size.


We guarantee a perfect fit. If there are any adjustments that need to be made, we’ll take care of them.

Our Mill.

We’ve partnered with a mill synonymous with quality. Their time tested processes produce outstanding fabric.

We’re working with several patented textile technologies to ensure that your shirts look good and feel soft.

Our Tailors.

Unless you geek out to clothes (like we do), you might not know what CAD is. CAD allows tailors to create patterns on their computer, and patterns are printed by machine. This allows for super accurate measurements and consistent sizing, order after order.

Imagine perfect-fitting shirts with every order, year after year. Sounds great, right? Welcome to Woodies!


We started Woodies with a simple vision: To give guys perfect fitting shirts at a price within reach.
