I am very proud that these pieces were Made in USA for Blade+Blue.
Each sweatshirt is constructed from a 7.5 oz, rich cotton/poly/rayon blended knit fabric.
The fabric definitely has some body to it which makes for a flattering fit and a more polished look.
The plush, textured character of the fabric kicks the level of style up a few notches too.
I chose to cut style this style with a raglan sleeve because the fabric will hug your shoulders perfectly - it is a really flattering fit.
To me, these sweatshirts are a great, casual alternative to a sweater.
They look great with everything!
Below is some information from a few years back regarding the development of my fleece items :)
During the pandemic, I gave myself a little project......If I am going to be here, how can I make myself comfortable without looking like and feeling like a complete lazy bones?
I needed a Blade+Blue version of these ugly sweatshirts & sweatpants that were taking up way too much space in my tiny closet.
So here we are and I am SO EXCITED to see this idea come to life. Not even the pandemic could stop this from happening!
I would also like to say that it was a very rewarding experience to meet and work with people who were in the same boat as I was... we were up against the ropes and we had to box our way out of this mess.
Check out the images and you'll see that the models are dressed casually (tee & jogger) or more put together with a button down & fleece top). Either way, they look great :)
If you want to see these pieces in real life, just wait on the corner of Eureka St. & Market St. in SF... you are bound to see me walking Blade & Gavin, dashing to the post office before they close, running out to grab my DoorDash order or going for a walk with my Erik. Whatever I am doing, I am in these!
I really like feeling this comfortable but doing it in Blade+Blue style. It makes me feel like not everything had to change in this nutty world.
Each piece sports the Blade+Blue crest by the hem on the wearer's right.
