A Customer Note
We received these fun photos from one of our customers, and wanted to share with you all for a Friday smile.
I hope this is something that can put a smile to your face, and hopefully be shared with other Pendleton fans. My husband, Jordan, and his best friend Ian, each had custom suits made with Pendleton Wool, and they absolutely couldn’t be happier.
Jordan’s jacket is made of the “Basket Maker Turquoise” sponge weight fabric, and his pants are the Eco-wise wool in “Berry”. Ian’s jacket is made of “Pine Top Red”, and his paints are the color “Doe.” They accessorized with bolo ties, belt buckles, and the Stetson hats that they purchased over 10 years ago when they originally graduated. Both suits were beautifully tailored in Albuquerque, New Mexico by the tailor at Final Stitch Alterations and Clothing, who, I think, was pretty surprised by this request. I should also credit Ian’s dog Ned, who wanted to be in the picture.
Originally, they intended that the maiden voyage of these suits would be a yearly alumni event held in early March for their fraternity, Phi Gamma Delta, at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado, where Ian, Jordan, and I attended college. Unfortunately, like so many other people during these challenging times, we were unable to attend this year’s event because of work requirements related to cross-state travel and quarantine. Instead, Ian and his wife Maria hosted Jordan and I for our own mini alumni event in Albuquerque to celebrate our friendship, our health, and of course, the Pendleton suits. With any luck, the suits will make a more public debut at next year’s event.
Emily thank YOU for sharing. We love seeing what creative people imagine with our fabrics.
