Navy Blue 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 start with fabric, there can be no compromising on quality here. To construct these shorts, I used a sweet, 8 ounce twill with 5% stretch. That little bit of stretch makes a huge difference, they are so comfortable!
- A GREAT FIT: When working on this year's short, I took last year's model & tried to make it just a little cooler. I preserved the streamlined, polished look but added a garment wash to beat the fabric up a little. This process brings out the natural characteristics of the fabric, adding a small degree of 'rumpling' which I found to be much, much cooler - so I ran with it. You will notice that this short is much less 'stiff & pressed' compared to the style I made last season.
I made one other important adjustment to make these shorts even better. The rise has been trimmed by about 1/2". it was a small change but it made the shorts look more modern.
The leg is still nice and trim with that 7" inseam that should hit about 1" above your knee. Most of the guys at the shoot still like to roll them up - but I will leave that up to you.
OH and in case you didn't catch it: I brought back the plaid linings! You missed them & quite honestly... so did I.

Good quality. Good style. Good fit. And very comfortable.
these amazing shorts fit perfectly the first time I tried them on. after washing, they fit even better. so, I decided to purchase another pair in khaki.
I’m always a fan of Blade + Blue quality. These shorts are the perfect length, respectful enough for lunch with mama, but not a bit shy, suitable for flirtatious moments. Peter, you’ve done it again!
First experience/purchase with Blade+Blue has been fantastic. These shorts fit incredibly well in all the right places. First pair of shorts I’ve purchased off the rack that look and feel like they where tailored specifically for me. I’m ordering a pair in every color!
These are the cutest, most comfortable shorts I own now. I plan on buying more in every color.
