Mad About (Pendleton) Plaid
This was going to be a post of all the things I want for winter in terms of my wardrobe and home decor, then I realized my list was strangely focused on one thing: plaid. The tried-and-true pattern was a huge runway trend and has long-been a closet classic. My quest naturally led me to the brand nearly synonymous with “plaid,” Pendleton. The company, which began its business with Indian Trade blankets in Pendleton, Oregon 1909, is still making the plaid staples (wool blankets, flannel shirts) that popularized their brand. They even partnered with high-end retailer Opening Ceremony a few years back. While Pendleton is still cranking out new versions of their best-loved pieces, for this post I’ll be focusing on their vintage ones. Vintage Pendleton is easy to find at thrift stores and flea markets (with a little digging) as well as more recently in more high end, well edited resale shops. The best part? They’re usually pretty affordable, too. I did a little e-surfing to find the items I’m most craving to satisfy my winter plaid fantasy and thought I’d share with you. Hope you all enjoy & happy holidays!
