Chris Mason and Peter Baldwin hope to score a deal for Bird Dogs, their gym shorts for guys, in Shark Tank episode 915. Guys wear Bird Dogs without underwear, letting them “go commando” without worries. The secret is an interior moisture wicking fabric with silver ion nano particle threads. This lets guys hang loose without worrying about odors.
Baldwin first envisioned Bird Dogs on a return flight from Europe. The Harvard MBA grad and former IBM sales executive was on a business trip. He was wearing a suit and his undies were giving him a wedgie. In that moment, he decided to get out of the corporate world and sell shorts that required no underwear. When he returned from the trip, he contacted Jeffrey Thrasher, Head of Men’s Design at Lululemon, and had him design his dream shorts.
Since then, the company won rave reviews for the product's style and comfort. They're basically gym shorts with a pocket and built-in underwear. They dry faster than most bathing suits, too. The shorts come in about three dozen styles and range in price from $55-$60. Baldwin and Mason likely want a Shark's help getting the brand into big box retail.
Will a Shark go commando and invest?

Bird Dogs Shark Tank Recap
Chris and Peter will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Bird Dogs will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
