Khaki 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.

Great fit ... fabric ... comfort!
even though I am working from home I still dress and prepare myself every morning for my home office. it gives you a better attitude than just coming to your home office with a t-shirt and lounge pants and sleepers. the shorts are nicely tailored and have details that others don't. I have already four pairs and they are great for home and to run to the supermarket to get supplies. I love them and I may get one or two more once the colors I want become available. and they have a little stretch which helps with the quarantine 15 issue LOL. thank you.
Excellent! Thank you!
These are great shorts, love the feel of how they were made. Comfortable and stylish.
Great shorts and the stretch makes them the most comfortable shorts I own. I have several pair now, navy, light blue, olive and charcoal.
