Grey Lush Floral Print Short Sleeve Shirt - Vince
The Wildflowers Vince Shirt: This summer, I have been spending a lot of time north of San Francisco where it is sunny & warm. If you have ever visited SF in the summertime, you know... we actually don't have a summertime!
I figured if SF can't bring me a hot summer, I will make one for myself.
That includes making a few pieces that make me feel like I am in paradise.
When working on this shirt, I thought back to my last trip to Hawaii. I stepped off the plane and was immediately struck by the scent of flowers in the air. I grew up in New York where the air definitely doesn't smell like this! As far as I was concerned, I had landed on another planet.
These beautiful, lush flowers are painted on a grey base fabric. I think the grey gives this shirt a more polished look - a little different from a lot of the floral shirts out there.
Oh and there is a little bit of stretch in this fabric that feels EXTRA good!
This shirt is finished with navy herringbone tape on the interior collar & charcoal buttons.
Made in USA of 97% Cotton & 3% Stretch.
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 to 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.
Great product, great patterns and superb style. I always get stopped and asked about my shirt when I wear a Blade and Blue.
