We are desiging some fight shorts right now that we are going to launch in September. We have figured out how they will be made and the design that we will have on them. The last thing that we are trying to determine is if we are going to use silkscreening for the art on them, or embroidery, or a combination of the two. I have a pair of Throwdown shorts that I have had for a long time now and they have silk screened artwork on them. They held up really well and the art on the shorts faded and cracked a bit over time, but I kind of liked the look of them after they got some wear to them. I also have some OTM shorts that are embroidered and I really like those as well and they held up really well. I also have a pair of Fairtex shorts and the embroidery started to rip apart a bit and threads started to come loose. So the pros and the cons of both of them are this, in my opinion: Silkscreened: Shorts have a lighter feel to them and the embroidery doesn't rub against your skin at all. When surfing in boardshots if there are any kind of embroidery on the shorts you get bad schafing on your skin where ever there is embroidery, but I have not had this problem when training in any kind of fight shorts with embroidery. Another con (some people like this look though) is that silkscreening might start to fade and crack a bit after extensive wear. Embroidery: The embroidery can sometimes irritate your skin. The embroidery can sometimes start to fall apart with extensive training. The pros are that if the embroidery holds up like the OTM shorts there will not be any fading or cracking. What do you guys prefer? Anything to add to the pros and cons? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
