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.
Very nice fit for me since I’m a bit shorter. Not too tight in any of the usual places. I really like the inside plaid pockets.
Could not have been a better experience
I absolutely love these shorts. They're stylish, fit incredibly well and at that price for a limited batch Made in the USA product it was really a no brainer. My only regret is that I didn't get them in navy and olive, but I still have my hopes they'll be restocked (fingers crossed). Lastly, Peter is such a pleasure to work with, I can't imagine having a better experience and I will be sure to recommend Blade and Blue to all my friends. Thank you for the stellar service!
My first time purchasing from Blade + Blue. Great quality and craftsmanship. Customer service was perfect. New loyal customer for sure!
