Thistle And WeedsPosted: November 5, 2011
My goal to add more colors to my summer wardrobe has been going fine so far, but when it comes to winter it’s a little more difficult, especially outerwear. I can’t justify spending money on a coat that I don’t need and don’t have room for, just because it’s a color that is not black or gray. So it was a stroke of luck when I came across this Pendleton jacket at Goodwill – and right after seeing Solanah of Vixen Vintage wear a similar one too.
Now I’m not sure if my jacket is a vintage Pendleton 49er or not (the tag says Pendleton but it doesn’t say what year.) I doubt that it is though, because from all the pictures of the 49ers I can tell they don’t have these buttons with thistles on them. But the buttons are actually my favorite part, and for $5.99, I don’t care either way.
