Yeah I looked at them, they seem a little spendy, although I didn't see bulk prices just $37 each not including shipping. I would like to know more about importing too. seems like there is a mising link on blank fight shorts that someone needs to fill. It could be one of us :D

I have a mill in the US that will sew for you. as little as 12pcs of each size. When they did our shorts they were pricey. You'll do a lot better price wise going to Pakistan and as long as your not getting a huge shipment you have no problems getting the stuff here.

I've been looking into companies via Alibaba.com, we've already had a few distributors send us test shorts (pakistan, china) to try out. I don't really see an issue with the whole "import" thing... you just pay for the shipping. Most of these companies have a minimun 500 qty. count for orders. A few we've talked to will go down to 100 qty. You'll be paying around 10$ for the shorts with your logo/design printed on them, when it's all said and done. These seem like pretty decent quality shorts, I'd go with the 100% polyester material though.

the only trustworth source is an american. And I only know of two companies I have had any dealings with. One is Iron Fist. And the other is Arago out of Florida. Iron fist's shorts are decent. A little limited on their design abilities. But they do promise and deliver. The down side is the design, and semi decent quality. Blank MMA short company number 2 is Arago out of Florida. I bought 50 pairs of their blank mma grappling shorts for a client. I was rather impressed. First they offered embroidery in 6 colors free. Second the owner is an american fighter. I have since ordered several hundred pairs this year from them and have had nothing but good experience. The shorts are actually way better quality than expected. Shipping time was exactly 3 weeks. Sizing was 100 percent accurate. I really liked them. They have a website called fighter magazine. And they all actually fight. So I was impressed by their operation and their clothes.

Ironfist shorts are kinda cheap. I have checked them out. Not sure on the other company. But From my understanding Ironfist is not made in "America". The work is only particially done here.
Also most everyone uses companies overseas. The only thing you really have to worry about oversea companies is getting your money taken. Some of them try and setup here also. Be careful with that. Most are good quality shorts.
I have seen cheap gloves though.
Anyway all our gear is high quality, and at least 3 major players work with use the same manufacturer as I use.

the blank mma shorts from arago are far superior to ironfist. I have had no bad experiences with either company. But the cost is a hug factor. You see they (arago) charges $18-22 delivered so I dont have to pay customs charges. Plus they accept paypal and Blind ship to my clients. So I can get 10 fight schools a months custom made mma shorts and have them drop ship it for me. And yes ironfist is kinda cheap material/quality. But I don't knock americans who try. And yes it's a dangerous thing to deal with a foreigner. They normally want western union. And these guys actually fight so thats a plus. and for the full link for the guy that can't figure out it's FighterMagazine.net you may want to put www. before the url......

I used the guys in florida to make my shorts. They did some incredible embroidery work. And the heavy weight material they use is easy to print on. But they make better than ironworks and better than wet effects. They are competitive price and It all ships out of florida. I got my shipment last week it had 50 red, 50 black with different stitching, Sick work.

Just an FYI. Most MMA guys do not like heavy material. I have been stuck with camo fight shorts, they are too heavy for these guys. They like really lightweight stuff. Who would have thought a couple ounces makes that much difference.
I use lightweight shorts now! I just got in some microfibers.

They made me both, the feedback I got was that the micro fiber is too thin and it wrinkles. But I will print on both. They are basically constructed the same. And the heavy poly is more stretchy and doesnt rip. Well I dont try to rip it. But I have had more people tell me that micro fiber rips. I look at it this way. The guys down there make these pretty good compared to the Jkoffs who took my money in PAK.... Pakstar ripped me off. Adroit ripped me off... And the rest of them I tried out kept sending me taslon. which is like rain coat material. Total crap. So the mma fighters, i take their opinion seriously because if the shorts suck, I could get beat up!!!!
