Pendleton shirts really are perfect! They come in a variety of plaids, short or long sleeves, and in signature wool or cotton.
To get you in the spirit, HERE are some Pendleton archival images!
First up is the Long Sleeve Rider Shirt in blue/tan/green, a heavier weight, wool long sleeve shirt.The woolen plaids are woven in the company-owned mill in Washougal, WA, where the scoured wool is carded, dyed and spun. Here I am, wearing the shirt as a light jacket. The weight is great for the crisp fall weather!
This Long Sleeve Sir Pen shirt in stewart black is also Pendleton wool, but is slightly thicker....
Compare the wool shirts with the cotton button-downs, such as this Long Sleeve Street Shirt in barn red! The plaid is very Pendleton, but this shirt is for warmer weather or for layering. Here's the Short Sleeve Button Down shirt in red/navy plaid The cotton Madras cloth of these shirts are a plain weave with dobby texture. This is the Short Sleeve Oceanside Button Down in navy/gold plaid Much of the production of this cotton is done by hand in India, giving the cloth unique qualities!Here's the Short Sleeve Oceanside Button down in navy/white plaid In the cotton Madras and other plaids, the color palette was inspired by classic preppy looks. Between the wool and the cotton is this medium weight wool shirt, the Long Sleeve Rider shirt in plaid blue/tan, which is perfect for indoor and outdoor wear. Here is the drape of a medium weight wool.... ....versus the heavy weight wool! The wool is thicker and the shirt is slightly more rigid. The fabric takes its name from Oregon's Umatilla County, where Pendleton buys wool from local sheep ranchers. Are you obsessed yet? Shop all Pendleton herE and Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony here!
