Hi there! We're Woodies.

We make innovative clothing, made custom to fit you. To preorder The Next Generation Performance Shorts and make them a reality, click Back This Project. Or read on! 

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

Well, at Woodies we don't like compromises.

We promise a perfect fit, and our new and improved performance shorts are packed with features you'll love.

The Next Generation Performance Shorts are custom made for you (no one else). And we use advanced sizing algorithms to calculate your measurements. And with all of our clothes, We Guarantee a Perfect Fit.

We can accommodate any size, short length and fit.

Similar to our Performance Chinos, we reimagined the pockets of the shorts – adding a hidden RFID blocking pocket within the front pocket. Keep your valuables safe with two secure zippered back pockets.

But these are just two of many features that make The Next Generation Performance Shorts, the most versatile shorts you'll ever own.

Soon after our Kickstarter ends, we'll be sending you a voucher to redeem your pledge directly on www.woodiesclothing.com. Here's a breakdown of your customization options:

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! We use over 20 measurements to make your shorts custom to you.

Like to keep it old school? You can also use a tape measure, and measure yourself. We have all the instructional videos you need to help.

No standard size chart here. Totally custom sizing. We can accommodate any size, short length and fit.

2. Select your fabric - Choose your favorite fabric(s) from our selection of  performance fabrics.

We've been developing our line of fabric for over 3 years. We obsess over details and quality.

Fashion is the second most wasteful industry in the world, with over $5 billion dollars of clothing being wasted annually. Fast fashion  and mass manufacturing have created an epidemic of unsold merchandise and waste.

At Woodies, we believe in Micro Manufacturing, not mass manufacturing. We make everything on demand.

Our shorts are sewn piece by piece, for our individual backers. What does that mean (aside from an amazing pair of custom performance chinos)? A lot less waste.

You’ll choose the sizing, style and color of your shorts soon after the campaign ends directly on www.woodiesclothing.com.

Our new performance shorts are expensive to make. How expensive? 2.5-5 times your typical off-the-rack "performance shorts." So how do we offer our backers such great value?

We sell directly to you. No retail markups. 

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


The Kickstarter community has played an invaluable role in our company... We're in direct contact with our backers daily, we love to hear from you. 

We're a bootstrapped company. Launching a new category like these new shorts is a huge investment, our backers let us know what demand will be like, but more importantly you help secure the funding we need to buy the fabric and materials, retool the factory and kickstart production!

We'd love to have you on board!
