What I like about Pendleton blazers is that most people would not think to buy one; heck, most people don’t know they exist. They’re completely unstructured, a heavy shirting fabric cut into a blazer with some patch pockets thrown on. These are the items I get most excited to ship: Something you wouldn’t get any other way. Oh and the chambray’s nice too.

Unstructured Pendleton Blazer: What I like most about vintage Pendleton is that it knows it strengths. They make a terrific woolen fabric. And so that’s what they’ll use for whatever comes next. I’m not sure there’s another company who makes a comparable jacket: Pure virgin wool in a blue-brow plaid cut and sewn into an unstructured blazer. Perfect for a casual night out when you want to make things a little different. Tagged a medium but should fit, based on your measurements. Made in the USA.
Triple-Stitched Chambray Shirt: You said you wanted to extend your basics, and this seems like a good way to do it. Everybody gets one chambray shirt, but this one keeps it light on the workwear sensabilities. No third pocket by the hip or gussets or grommets. Front flap pockets and triple stitched seams throughout, though, make it practical and durable. Will look good on the water or on the street. Again, tagged a medium, but measures out to a large. 100% cotton and made in the USA.
