The gym shorts everyone is wearing outside the gym

Squeezing a weekend wedding in Nashville between two work trips is not an easy task – especially when you only have a carry on.

What could I pack that covers morning runs, a Nashville weekend of BBQ plus live music and golf? The answer: my Birddogs gym shorts.

I bought my first pair of Birddogs back in 2014 when the company was selling them as gym shorts.

Flash forward six years later – I don’t own any other shorts besides Birddogs.

And I’m not the only one wearing gym shorts far beyond the gym. Take a stroll in any park on a Saturday morning and Birddogs have become the defacto uniform for guys all summer long.

Birddogs made a wardrobe staple that is just more comfortable, and versatile enough to cover everything you need in a single pair of shorts.

I wish I had thought of it. Seems obvious in hindsight.
