Pendleton is another one of my favorite domestically produced clothing companies. Not only have they been around forever but they make some really neat and durable stuff. I would die to have one of their patterned wool blankets or scarves. Anyways I made some great cutoffs out of a thrifted pair of Levi's 511s and took apart an old, damaged Pendleton blazer and used it as a detail panel on the back of the shorts.
Later a friend at work tld me that she went to Nordstrom and Free People started making an identical pair of these. Psh, what a rip off.
