The 'Paradise' Cotton Stretch Twill Short in Pink
The "Paradise" Short: This summer, I wanted everything to be a little more playful. The beauty of the Hawaiian Islands (not to mention a couple of Mai Tai's) inspired me to relax, loosen up, and HAVE SOME FUN!
I already had the perfect fabric in a set of beautiful colors. But I wanted to create a new short that was strictly designed for 'play'.
The 'Paradise Short' is constructed from my favorite stretch twill which has a perfectly lived-in look after I apply a special garment wash. I mean, I literally wash these in my own washer & dryer to get the exact effect that I want.
I got rid of the belt loops and chose to use an elastic waistband instead: easy on and easy off!
Lastly, I trimmed the rise and shortened up that inseam. This is a sexy short! I thought the 6" inseam was plenty short, but every single model rolled them up while on the set of our latest shoot.... and I just said GO FOR IT!
OH and in case you didn't catch them: Check out those ridiculous plaid pockets! I love how they peep out a little from the sideview for a sweet surprise.
- 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!
- customer service
perfect length, great detailing, and lovely color!
Love the pink color on these and the look and feel, not to mention fit is great!
Bought the shorts for my husband. He shared they are very comfortable, the color works for him and they’re stylish. He made a point of drawing my attention to the cuff. Nice touch!
Great Shorts. Great Service
The shorts are a nice length and fun color. Love the drawstring. Peter is always helpful with questions and tips.
Great clothes and service
The clothes are fantastic. The shorts are so comfortable and very well-made. What truly separates Blade + Blue from other retailers is the customer service. I interacted extensively with Peter Papas, who was extremely sweet and responsive via email regarding everything from sizing to returns. I could not have had a more positive experience and will definitely be shopping at Blade + Blue again in the future.
