This September, Pendleton celebrated 70 years of timeless, classic styling for women. Pendleton introduced their womenswear collection in 1949 when market research identified an opportunity for sportswear for women. Nevertheless, no one could have predicted the enormous success of a single garment introduced with the Pendleton womenswear line that year. Their very first product, the 49er jacket, was an instant success. In 1972, Pendleton became a year-round sportswear resource, introducing distinctively styled, non-wool menswear and womenswear for spring and summer wear.
This fall, we have two new women’s jackets to celebrate these 70 years, and this new arrival comes from our archives! Made in the USA of our warm, blanket-weight Harding jacquard fabric, with impeccable pattern matching across every seam, the 1930's Archive Coat is the revival of the iconic Harding blanket coat, reimagined for today in an updated fit.
The second addition to this collection for this season is the Western Horizons Coat. Our Pendleton, Oregon, mill produced only a small run of this exquisite fabric, creating a limited-edition women’s wool jacket that’s truly unique. An unlined interior with neatly finished seams lets you see the pattern’s reverse. Four patch pockets and side-entry hip pockets and long sleeves.
