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

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.

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 customers. 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.


 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.
