|all in a row-the different styles of Pendleton shirts-through the years|
Given all the performance buzz about synthetic textiles…the original performance textile -wool ---good old fashioned wool---was noticeably (colorfully) used in apparel and footwear---more as a style statement than as a warm story for winter '14/15.
|90 years worth of different pocket details and cuffs ----|
|The original surf shirt...|
|The Board Shirt-a Beach Boys classic---and they didn't even need a stylist to look so cool|
|Woolen Pendleton Mills-the fabric/print is distinguishable---the peacoat for women-warm and has a slim fit…fresh interpretation of the iconic textiles!|
|LOVE. Another great coat-using heritage print of Native-American inspired pattern-in a bold red/bright navy blue.|
|fine spun worsted wool gabardine-Pendleton Wool /Thomas Kay Collection Gambler Shirt-in solid tones…vintage 1930-western look $188|
|A standout. This gorgeous MADE IN THE USA NIKE N7 blanket ---a pattern wonderfully designed by Nike's Derek Roberts. On the left/right-actually the bottom and top of the blanket, mirror images-a smaller pattern of arrows repeats and grows in size towards the center.Center is the Nike N7 mark-3 arrows pointing back to signify past generations, 3 arrows pointing forward =future generations, ..and arrows in the center=current generation. Geometric -emphasized by the color choices- black, white, grey-reference native Americans and modern math all at the same time. Plus the background on one side of the blanket is black, the other white-very cool.---Labels are the iconic Pendleton Woolen Mills and the black/cream Nike 7. $299 Available Now|
