Navy Blue 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.

"I would buy from again"? The purchase of this shirt was me coming back for more
I tried the polo shirt (in green). I loved the ligterweight fabric, the elegant drape, and the flattering fit so much I had to get another one for me and one for my husband.
Cotton Pique Polo Shirt
I am very happy with this purchase. The shirts fit very well, only slightly more tight than RL performance line polo shirts. The fabric is light, but not too light (feels lightweight but is very decent quality). The colors (I bought blue, black, olive) are very attractive. The logo is a reasonable size so that one can easily recognize that it is a dachshund. I also purchased one of dachshund logo caps and it fits very well with a hidden adjustment band.. The owner sent me a nice note with my purchase. I was able to return my initial purchase of size medium which was too small for me. It is a pleasure to support high-quality small businesses such as this, especially when the owner is so engaged with assuring his customers' happiness with the product. Goodbye to polo ponies, hello to wiener dogs!!

Great shirt! Love the fit and feel. Already feels like a trusted classic.
Great style, great fit, great
Great style, great fit, great fabric. Just perfect. Thank you !
Love the look!
I actually haven't warn this yet, as I am in New England and the Spring snow storm we had was telling me to wait. I think it might be a little tight fitting, but that will be more incentive to get back on my bike and lose some of the winter weight.
