When beginning to put together the puzzle of this new season, I asked myself to come up with a few words to function as 'northern stars'. Guardrails to steer me in the right direction when choosing fabrics, styles & colors.
The words that came from inside my head were: "soft as clouds & cotton balls", "floating & dreaming" & "the 'Victorialand' album by Cocteau Twins"
From there, my obsession began: barely-there tones, scrumptiously soft fabrics, perfect staple pieces, style with ease
FIT FEEDBACK: SIZE DOWN FOR A VERY SNUG FIT. This fabric seems to move very comfortably with the body. Based on wear-test feedback, many of the guys preferred to size DOWN to get an even snugger fit.
WHY DO I LOVE THIS STYLE? What to mention first.....
FIT: This is a pretty slim cut & these look the most like 'real pants' of all the joggers. I have not been able to switch off them yet (new obsession alert).
FABRIC: Made from 100% organic combed ring spun cotton. This fabric has been getting raves from wear-testers for softness & drape.
Made In USA
Oh and don't think Stephen, (my handsome pal who is modeling) gave any samples back! He is addicted now too :)
Below is some information regarding how B+B fleece got started:
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.
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.
I am very proud that these pieces were Made in USA for Blade+Blue.
To me, these sweatshirts are the new sweater and these joggers are the new jeans.
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.
For sizing information, please see the size chart in the row of images for this style.
