The Pant, the Myth, the Legend
When we created the Zubaz pant 26 years ago, we had no idea that it would grow to the level that it did. We started the Zubaz brand out of a gym that we owned in Minnesota and our first customers were guys who loved the fit and comfort, something they couldn't find in "normal" clothes due to the size of their bodies. The classic zebra pattern is one of the first prints that we did and it came to symbolize the Zubaz brand name as a crazy look for people who wanted to "Dare to be Different". We always said that the look is what attracted people to their first pair and the comfort was what brought them back for their 2nd pair... or 3rd, 4th or 5th pair. As the company grew, so did the customer base. We developed many more colors and prints. We started making smaller sizes for the kids as well as making more sales to the female customers. We added different products including shorts, tops, caps, bags, jackets and even shoes.
Zubaz begin to sell at department stores, sports stadiums and special events across the country and eventually, all around the world. Professional athletes, rock stars and royalty all wore the pants that "flew in the face of fashion". After a few years we eventually left the clothing business to move on to other endeavors, but never forgot the fun and excitement we had with the whole Zubaz phenomena. In 2007 we decided to bring Zubaz back and offer them to a whole new generation of people.
Today, Zubaz are available in a variety of colors, prints and sizes and are still made with the same great quality, comfort and fit that everyone has loved for the past 26 years. As we grow, we'll be bringing back some old favorites as well as adding new products to the line and as always, we welcome our customers input. If you're a first-time customer, we hope you try a pair of Zubaz and think that you'll agree that they're still "the most comfortable clothes on the planet", and if you're a fan from way back, thanks for coming back, and thanks for supporting the Zubaz Nation.
Zubaz... outstanding pants.
What about that vehicle?
Created in 2009, the "Zubus" is a vehicle that easily sums up the Zubaz attitude and appeal and serves as a mobile magnet to all things Zubaz. It is a priceless icon that is easily recognized wherever it goes. This multimillion dollar marvel of modern technology is loaded with all of the latest high-tech gear and state of the art systems that can be found on some of the worlds most sophisticated driving and racing machines. The Zubus sounds like a Ferrari, drives like a Lamborghini and handles like a Porsche. It has a sound system that rivals that of any concert hall and its onboard amenities are like those of a world-class cruise ship...
Well, ok, maybe not... actually, the Zubus is a 2002 Ford E350, with 232,000 miles on it. It's got a diesel engine that doesn't really care for the Minnesota winters, its music source is a small portable boom box taped to the front engine cover and its suspension has been known to cause bodily harm for those passengers who get launched from their seats while driving over small bumps or potholes.
The Zubus can usually be found wherever a good time is being had and wherever the public demand reaches a fever pitch for its presence... or wherever we can find a parking spot big enough for it.
Look for it at an event near you and thanks for supporting the Zubaz Nation.
