Olive Cotton Stretch Twill Shorts
- 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!
- A GREAT FIT: When working on this year's short, I took last year's model & tried to make it just a little cooler. I preserved the streamlined, polished look but added a garment wash to beat the fabric up a little. This process brings out the natural characteristics of the fabric, adding a small degree of 'rumpling' which I found to be much, much cooler - so I ran with it. You will notice that this short is much less 'stiff & pressed' compared to the style I made last season.
I made one other important adjustment to make these shorts even better. The rise has been trimmed by about 1/2". it was a small change but it made the shorts look more modern.
The leg is still nice and trim with that 7" inseam that should hit about 1" above your knee. Most of the guys at the shoot still like to roll them up - but I will leave that up to you.
OH and in case you didn't catch it: I brought back the plaid linings! You missed them & quite honestly... so did I.

They are and fit so differently than anything out there. I have Tommy h shorts that are 20 dollars more expensive than these and they do not fit like these do. What I mean is not that they are tight in any place. They just look tailored I think Is the word I am looking for. People notice them. They know they are different. I feel confident when I wear them and they are so easy to dress up or down. and the quality of the fabric and the stitching is impeccable. better than polo or tommy's
Love them! Perfect length…great feel…and love the flair of the interior pockets. I just ordered blue and charcoal!
Have received multiple compliments on these from other guys, both gay and straight. Comfortable, well-constructed, nice fit, just enough stretch. A home run, worth paying a little more than mass-market retailers.
Great fit and design
Love the shorts, great quality and fit. Speedy delivery.
