Coral Red Cotton Pique Polo
The Story: You know that Blade + Blue is a small company (it is just little old me out here!), so making new products is a very big deal. I was very fortunate to work with one of the world's best knit factories & they helped me bring the idea for this polo to life.
I wanted to honor that little dachshund logo while bringing you a product that is impeccably made. We have worked very hard to make a polo that is soft & comfortable but also expertly crafted & handsomely cut.
It is also wonderful to know that this factory has donated a percentage of the proceeds from Blade + Blue to the schools in their community. Now, THAT is cool.
The Fabric: Can someone please explain why polo shirts are usually made from such heavy fabric? Its hot out and it feels like wearing a bulletproof vest!
We developed the most beautiful, lightweight & breathable cotton pique possible. Blade + Blue's fabric not only feels great, but it's drape is so much more flattering than a heavier weight would be.
The Details: The Blade + Blue polo features the little bowtie'd dachshund that reminds me that sometimes the underdog can win. It is also trimmed with blue chambray at the inside neck and side vent. Made in Peru.
The Fit: There are 2 words that I keep in mind when fitting all Blade+Blue items: Comfortable & Sexy. I want you to feel at ease but I also want you to feel confident and attractive. There is ample room in the chest & shoulders with a gradual tapering through the body down to the hem.
Please note, this polo fits true to size and is not as narrowly cut as previous polos have been (particularly in the larger sizes).
I wasn’t sure how theee would fit (too wide or too long) but they fit me perfect. I’m 5 foot 9 and wear a 32 inch waist. The medium fits perfect after one wash and one dry. I hang dry now. Length is just over my belt area and the sides are snug.
Love the shirt. The fit is great. I have a tough time finding XL shirts that don't hug the chest too much then billow like a cap around the waist. This shirt fits great. Really looks good and feels great. Definitely will be in heavy rotatoin
I'm in love w/ this shirt!
The fit of my polo is perfect... Not too tight, not baggy-saggy, either. The weight of the fabric is perfect for summer/early fall: Not too heavy and breathable. I'm in love w/ the color! My only small glitch is that the sleeves are just a tad bit short for my taste. However, those guys who love to show off their "guns" will find sleeve length to be perfect. (I really need to get back to the gym...)
I love this shirt. Color and fit are perfect. It’s comfortable and durable.
Geat colors, great fit and quality fabric and construction
I think the title says it all. I love the new warm weather friendly colors and the updated fit of these polos. I have two of the previous cut and they are a little more form fitting to me in a Medium. I just purchased three of the new cut in Medium and they look great, but aren't quite as form fitting, in a good way. They are a great improvement. I will be purchasing more colors soon.
