XELOS is a federally registered trademark (#2224343) of SJ Williams Industries, Inc. Huntington Beach, California USA

We're vertical retailers and we make everything we sell - except tee shirts.  In the late 90's there was a mass exodus of board shorts manufacturing from Orange and LA counties in California to cheaper factories in China and other far-away lands. But we never jumped on the bandwagon. Simply because we're not into watching jobs leave town.  And we're really not into selling clothes made by kids in China. 


Instead, we're passionate about selling (now rare) classic, 100% California-made board shorts and stuff that fits the beach and watersports lifestyle that we enjoy every day. Since we made our first pair in 1998, we've been custom manufacturing artisan-quality trunks, pants, skirts, etc for men, women and kids. We launched this online store in 2005 and we've become famous for providing a wide range of hard-to-find sizes and lengths as well as an awesome array of fabric choices.

Over the years, we've had the privilege of supplying our products to some great companies like Nickelodeon ("pool party" costumes for The Fresh Beat Band), Discovery Channel (Shark Week),  SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and the Georgia Aquarium (Dolphin Show animal trainer uniforms) to name a few. With 18 years of experience in apparel manufacturing, we're comfortable with orders small and large


So whether you just need a couple boardies for yourself or a couple thousand for a company gig or event, we'll satisfy your needs stress-free.
