What do I do when I find a fabric that I really love?... Scream a little, Obsess over it a lot and then figure out how many cool things I can make from it...
I'm very excited to be working with some more eco-friendly fabrics this season, just like this 100% organic cotton textile.
When I approached this season, I kept thinking about 'starting over' & 'rebuilding''. A fresh, new year would be coming with a change in the presidency and an end to the pandemic - two things that turned all of our lives upside down.
So I thought about starting with t-shirts being the building blocks for the outfits we assemble. Whether we throw on a button down or a sweatshirt over it... it all still begins with the tee.
I wanted to make the t-shirt that you want to grab first. The t-shirt that is the building block for the outfit you wear today. The t-shirt that starts your morning with ease & confidence.
I kind of forgot how nice a simple long sleeve tee felt.. why didn't I own any?
Each piece is Made in USA from 100% Organic Cotton.
The long sleeve tee is finished with ribbed sleeve cuffs and a Blade+Blue logo patch just above the double needle bottom.
I am very proud that these pieces were Made in USA for Blade+Blue.
Let me guess, you've been spending a little more time at home lately, right?Yeah me too...
So 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. Not to mention wanting to find the perfect T-Shirt!
As the development of the fleece & tee collection began to come together, it was clear that I needed some tees that were equally as beautiful.
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.
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.
For sizing information, please see the size chart in the row of images for this style.
