How It Started

DVSN was created in 2020 by brothers Chris and Mike Walton after struggling to find the ultimate pair of lifestyle shorts that struck a perfect balance between comfort and performance; versatile enough to be worn as leisure shorts, board shorts or training shorts.

After endlessly searching, without any success, we decided enough was enough and it was time to create something entirely new, a pair of lifestyle shorts you can be proud to wear anytime, anywhere without sacrificing comfort or range of motion.


Once we nailed down the perfect pair of lifestyle shorts, we realised we needed a versatile lifestyle T-shirt that was professional enough to be worn at work, hardworking enough to be worn in training and stylish enough to be worn for a night out.

A good fitting T-shirt is a staple in everyone’s wardrobe, we just felt it could be done better, opting for a longer streetwear inspired body and tailored fit, our vision was to create a T-shirt that not only complimented the overall aesthetic of our new shorts but the aesthetic vision of the brand and future products.
