Anyway, Pendleton, who i worked for the last couple weeks is one of the companies that i always knew was a good one (american made, all quality, family owned for 130 years, OREGON!! - all awesome) but not convinced it was 'for me'. When it is all together in the catalogue or store i think it's 'nice', but it just doesn't seem to fit my style and weather. They are not unnoticed. The top shot is of the line that opening ceremony did with pendleton. They have also collaborated with Hurley, Nike and Comme Des Garcon. not bad. So, after spending a couple weeks with the product I have found a few things that i'm savin' up fer:
i know. i know. they are f-ing rad, beautifully made, bad a**, authentic boots. be warned, they are a pretty penny. but they are even prettier boots that will last forever. here s the link.
This mens slim vintage fit shirt is awesome, too. It looks a bit serious for me on the model, but they are cotton, not wool and are more affordable than the wool ones. picture him just cruising around on a bike in prospect park.
And the two blankets up top are super, super pretty. The big grey one with the cross (the san miguel) is amazing, and heavy enough to keep you warm in a snowstorm - which is why everyone in alaska, Aspen, Tahoe, Mount Hood, etc buys Pendleton. Its more of a bed blanket than a throw, fyi, its heavy thick whool; the graphic is super modern. The one next to it is super simple, pretty and warm.
Again, please don't think that i'm schilling because i worked for them (and hope to again). I was just surprised at how much I wanted some of their product, being way younger than their target demographic and being a total city girl. A lot of their stuff doesn't suit my style and my weather, but these do. oh, and i'll take a couple of the lambs from their ranch that i showed here too.
