The Story: You know that Blade + Blue is a small company (it is just little old me out here!), so making new products is a very big deal. I was very fortunate to work with one of the world's best knit factories & they helped me bring the idea for this polo to life.
I wanted to honor that little dachshund logo while bringing you a product that is impeccably made. We have worked very hard to make a polo that is soft & comfortable but also expertly crafted & handsomely cut.
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!
We developed the most beautiful, lightweight & breathable cotton pique possible. 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.
The Fit: There are 2 words that I keep in mind when fitting all Blade+Blue items: Comfortable & Sexy. I want you to feel at ease but I also want you to feel confident and attractive. There is ample room in the chest & shoulders with a gradual tapering through the body down to the hem.
Please note, this polo fits true to size and is not as narrowly cut as previous polos have been (particularly in the larger sizes).

Shirts will shrink roughly 3% if put in the dryer.
Due to fabric construction, you will notice shrinkage mostly in length.
The body lengths are slightly long just for this reason.

I found the shirt to for well in the shoulders and chest but is a bit long for my height of 5’8.
Great!! It fits like a glove!
I felt confident wearing it because I looked good.
