The 'Paradise' Stretch Twill Short in Ivory Sizes L, XL & XXL Available
The "Paradise" Short: This summer, I wanted everything to be a little more playful. The beauty of the Hawaiian Islands (not to mention a couple of Mai Tai's) inspired me to relax, loosen up, and HAVE SOME FUN!
I already had the perfect fabric in a set of beautiful colors. But I wanted to create a new short that was strictly designed for 'play'.
The 'Paradise Short' is constructed from my favorite stretch twill which has a perfectly lived-in look after I apply a special garment wash. I mean, I literally wash these in my own washer & dryer to get the exact effect that I want.
I got rid of the belt loops and chose to use an elastic waistband instead: easy on and easy off!
Lastly, I trimmed the rise and shortened up that inseam. This is a sexy short! I thought the 6" inseam was plenty short, but every single model rolled them up while on the set of our latest shoot.... and I just said GO FOR IT!
OH and in case you didn't catch them: Check out those ridiculous plaid pockets! I love how they peep out a little from the sideview for a sweet surprise.
- MADE IN USA: The Blade + Blue shorts are made in limited runs right here in the the Bay Area of California. It is extremely important for me to keep things as close to home as I can. I really enjoy having a personal relationship with the people who help bring my ideas to life.
- TOP OF THE LINE FABRIC: It really does start with fabric, there can be no compromising on quality here. To construct these shorts, I used a sweet, 8 ounce twill with 5% stretch. That little bit of stretch makes a huge difference, they are so comfortable!
Love the roominess around the seat and crotch, tighter fit on my thighs, pocket print detail, and durability yet softness of the fabric. My second pair of these shorts and definitely not my last
I love the way these shorts fit and the quality is great!
Love these shorts I have them in every color and they are so comfortable.
These are so comfortable. Here in Texas, we wear shorts for about 9 months out of the year. So I was looking for comfort and fit. Peter has done a great job on the design. Since I’m short, the shorter rise is perfect for me. Love them.
Great color and fit.
