    The Benedict Shirt: Hello, sunshine.

    I have wanted to make a print using the traditional Japanese Uroko motif for a while now, but it can be tricky to get a bunch of triangles to look cool (!)
    It was starting to give me a headache.

    The traditional Uroko pattern mimics the scales of a fish or a snake - protective barriers against harm.
    Now I wasn't there or anything, but apparently Samurai would wear this pattern as a symbol of protection :)

    This print breaks from tradition by scattering the scales and painting them over a deep golden backdrop.

    This Benedict is the centerpiece of an upcoming capsule called "Behind The Sun"
    When this print came out, the combination of that warm gold and the re-positioned triangles made me feel like the sun was scattering it's rays all over the earth.

    The fabric is printed in Japan. Each shirt is Made in USA

    Made of 100% cotton, trimmed with natural buttons & navy herringbone tape.

    I live for making shirts & I am a real fanatic about it. So much detail & care has been put into the making of each Blade + Blue piece. I want this to be your new favorite shirt.

    What Makes a Blade + Blue Shirt So Special? 

    - MADE IN USA: Blade + Blue shirts are made in limited runs here in the USA. I work with master craftsmen whose family has been making shirts since the 1950's. 

    - TOP OF THE LINE FABRIC:  Blade + Blue sources premium Japanese fabrics from some of the finest textile mills in the world.

    - A GREAT FIT:  I set out to create a shirt that was both comfortable & flattering. No more feeling like you are stuffed into a super-skinny fit or feeling frumpy in a big, boxy fit. The Blade + Blue cut was designed to provide room for comfort in key areas like the chest & shoulders but is then slightly nipped at the waist to give you a most flattering shape. You will also notice that the lengths of Blade + Blue shirts are designed to make you look great tucked in or out. Please take a look at our FIT GUIDE for more specific measurement information.

    - 'NITTY-GRITTY' GOOD STUFF: Let me share a few more details that make the Blade + Blue extra cool:

    • Collar Shape: Nothing is worse than seeing an otherwise handsome shirt ruined by a big, floppy collar. The wrong collar shape can instantly ruin your look. I have slightly trimmed the height on Blade + Blue collars, then created a semi-spread shape for a very sharp & modern effect.
    • Placket Construction: The slimmer center placket shape of the Blade + Blue shirt is sewn in with a stitch right at the edge of the placket. This technique creates a more streamlined look and eliminates the distracting, 'rumpled' effect that occurs with most other shirts.
