It’s a First

We are excited to announce the launch of our first collaboration with Lee®, the iconic apparel brand known for its timeless style. This limited-edition drop reimagines essentials from almost 300 years of combined apparel experience.

Original Lee® styles such as the Lee 101™ Jean, Union-Alls® and Storm Rider® Jacket have been remixed with exclusively designed Pendleton plaids and stripes. Each legacy pattern has been reimagined in new colorways, with fabrics woven in Pendleton’s USA mills.

The jeans are crafted and sewn in Greensboro, North Carolina. These styles feature some of the last remaining American selvedge denim from Cone Denim’s White Oak Mill, which closed in 2017. This legendary, high-quality denim is woven on vintage Draper shuttle looms that only produced 100 yards a day.  

“Pendleton’s use of beautiful color and pattern has always been a source of inspiration. Working together is a dream come true,” said Betty Madden, vice-president of global design, Lee®. “We’ve taken a fresh design approach and incorporated Cone Mills’ selvedge denim to make this collection heirloom quality with stunning craftsmanship. I’m thrilled with this collaboration.”  

“Working with Lee® was a perfect pairing. Their authentic American heritage brand echoes Pendleton’s dedication to quality, design and textile innovation,” said Peter Bishop, Pendleton’s executive vice president of merchandise and design. “With so many years of combined craftsmanship and expertise, we’re excited to see this unique apparel and blanket collection come to life.”

The collection is available on Lee® and Pendleton’s websites, and later this month in select Pendleton retailers and independent boutiques.
