Black Cotton Pique Polo Shirt
The Backstory: Do you want the truth? I was a little nervous about bringing the idea for these polos to life. You know that Blade + Blue is a small company, its just little old me out here! So making new products is a very big deal. But I was so fortunate to get to work with one of the world's best knit factories, that I just had to take this chance. I wanted to honor that little dachshund logo while bringing you a product that is impeccably made. 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! I had to make this polo out of the most beautiful, lightweight and breathable cotton pique that I could find. 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.
Please Note: This polo fits on the narrow side. If you are between sizes, I recommend that you size up.
This is a polo shirt you wear with confidence. Well proportioned, accentuates body features while remaining classy and practical. Fit is pretty tailored so guys with a little extra around the middle might want to size up. While the shoulder and chest fit are fantastic overall, the polo shirt is rather long for s short guy like me. Maybe a shorter cut option in a future edition of the shirt?
This shirt is near perfection! Love that the material isn’t so thick, has a great hand. I’m pretty hotblooded (read I sweat buckets) so the fabric is formal but without being too thick. I’m 6’1” and 195 and wear a large. It’s definitely an athletic / flattering fit. Looks good under a blazer as well. If I could make one change I wish the logo was also in black and / or not on the chest. Then again I used to unstitch those alligators as I don’t like to wear obviously branded clothes. But yeah, I’m weird that way. I will be buying a few more of these soon! Thanks!
I’ve had nothing but outstanding experiences with each Blade + Blue purchase I’ve made. Great quality products and exceptional customer service. Having a hand written personal message arrive with each purchase sets Blade + Blue apart!
Very nice quality polo and the dog logo is cool !
Fits amazing and the material feels great.
