1950’s Pendleton virgin wool plaid “Battle” shirt-style jacket

Again taking some cues from military styling, this plaid piece from the 1950’s fashions virgin wool into a smart, masculine-looking complement to slacks or more casual pants.  The defined dropped waistband helps to establish this broad-shouldered shirt-style jacket as somewhere between everyday wear for business, but also is not a jacket that would be worn to chop down a tree.  It says, “I have some free time, and I look good in plaid.”   As with all vintage Pendleton, this garment is made with all-Oregon wool and crafted by Oregonian hands!

1950’s red and charcoal women’s plaid blazer

Coming straight to you from the late 1950’s, this smartly tailored and plaid-bedecked dark gray women’s blazer-style jacket packs a big color wallop while retaining an air of matter-of-factness and efficiency.   Wool fabric is complemented by leather trim at the collar, down the center front, and on the diagonal flap hip and chest pockets, as well as on the matching buttons.  Great for coordinating with pants or a skirt and appropriate for a variety of functions!  More photos and information here.
