“New” Vintage Fit Madras Epic Shirt from Pendleton Keeps It Real

Share Article

What’s old is new again in the “new” classic Western shirt, retro fit in a slimmer cut in cool, breathable 100% cotton madras.

Pendleton’s Epic Shirt is reminiscent of a style offered by this classic men’s shirt maker in the 1970s. Cut closer to the body like many of the earlier shirt styles, it is slimmer through the chest and waist. Body and sleeve length compare to Pendleton’s regular shirts.

“Younger guys are seeking authentic plaids and vintage shirts in droves,” says Jim Buckner of Pendleton Menswear Division. “Vans, Hurley, Opening Ceremony and others have co-branded our shirts because they know that Pendleton is authentic. We’ve been doing this for a long time (since 1924) and often find our best inspiration in our extensive archives.”

Originally offered as a Western shirt, today it’s as comfortable on the streets of New York as it is in Wyoming.

Keeping it real, the company stuck to the authentic detailing in peaked yokes, plus a snap front, pockets and cuffs. It features a bias-cut yoke and pockets and an easy shirttail bottom. These new shirts are available now in French Blue, Banana/Tan and Red/Blue Plaids.

They are easy-care machine washable and retail for around $54. You can find Pendleton products at select retailers, at Pendleton stores and at http://www.pendleton-usa.com or toll-free at 1-800-649-1512.
