Red 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.

first review for lonely red shirt
I noticed that the red shirt was the only color in this line of wonderful, soft well-fitting shirts that lacked a review. Sad :-(. I have one of each color in these shirts, including the red shirt, and they are all wonderful. In fact, I just bought extras in blue and black, but that is certainly another story (or at least fodder for another review). Each color is a flattering shade. Certainly much more so than many of the other polo shirts containing left chest-occupying, four-legged animals (LOL)! The red shirt is no exception. It is a bright red, but not too bright at all (not to be confused with this reviewer somebody else's child). For red, it is an elegant color. If you like red, you will like this shirt. All of the shirts are snug, but well fitting. For example, I have a 42" chest (5'9") and I wear a large - it fits perfectly. I tried the medium first and it was too tight - gracious returns were accepted, then I replaced the medium with a large. If you like polos, like wiener dogs, and like red, you can't go wrong with these shirts. If you don't like wiener dogs, go somewhere else -- now!
