Grey Heather & White Buffalo Check Shirt - 'Bert'
Bert Buffalo Check: Lately I have been thinking about the last time I was in Provincetown during the winter. Things were so peaceful and I wanted these shirts to reflect that beautiful simplicity. Bert is quintessential Blade + Blue; taking a classic pattern like a buffalo check but using special heathered yarns to create something beautiful & new. 100% cotton, trimmed with white marbled buttons and navy herringbone tape.
Made in the 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.
It starts with the fabric: Blade + Blue sources premium Japanese fabrics from some of the finest textile mills in the world.
Then the details: Blade + Blue is small, so each shirt gets plenty of attention in the design & manufacturing process. I like to focus on the small things that make a big difference; like finding unique buttons or selecting the thread color that best complements each fabric. My favorite detail is the navy blue herringbone tape that peeks out of the interior cuff. Guys are always rolling up their sleeves to be comfortable and that subtle detail allows them to be relaxed and still look polished. Its these small details that make each shirt classic & cool.
And the fit: I set out to create a shirt that was comfortable and flattering. I was tired of feeling stuffed into the skinny fits and then frumpy in all the boxy fits. The Blade + Blue cut was designed to provide room for comfort in key areas like the chest and shoulders but slightly nipped at the waist for a clean look. The lengths of Blade + Blue shirts were also designed to make you to look great tucked in or out.

- B+B shirt
Great print, nice fabric
Second B+B shirt I bought for my husband. He cannot stand when shirts are tight around the arms and back (he has muscular arms), and he really likes these shirts.
Blade and Blue’s clothes are excellent! Keep making more and i will keep coming back.
These are cool shirts. The fabric is soft and comfortable. The fit is slim but not too tight. And best of all made in USA. Highly recommend
Kudos for the Buffalo Check
My new B+B grey heather and white Buffalo Check shirt is my current favorite. ... Sharp ... Casual ... Classy ... and generating lots of positive comments from friends.
