Olive Cotton Stretch Twill Shorts
- MADE IN USA: The Blade + Blue shorts are made in limited runs right here in the the Bay Area of California. It is extremely important for me to keep things as close to home as I can. I really enjoy having a personal relationship with the people who help bring my ideas to life.
- TOP OF THE LINE FABRIC: It really does all start with fabric, there can be no compromising on quality here. But this year, I upped the ante. I used a sweet, 8 ounce twill with 2% stretch to construct these shorts. That little bit of stretch makes a huge difference, they are so comfortable!
- A GREAT FIT: OK, so this took a lot of time & thought! I wanted the shorts to have a streamlined, polished look. But I didn't want you to feel stuffed into them like a sausage either! In order to get the balance right, I dropped the rise a little to give you some extra room (where it counts!). But I trimmed up the leg and cut them off at just over 7" - about an inch up from the knee. Check out how they fit Elbert - poor Elbert, I made him get up really early the day after his birthday celebration for this shoot!
Please Note: I intentionally cut these shorts about 2% larger to account for shrink when you home launder them. For me, they fit great on the first try but really look perfect after the first home laundering & drying.
