Pendleton's summer collection is inspired by some of their own history. In the early 1960s, Pendleton shirts hit the airwaves courtesy of the Majorettes, whose song “White Levis” became a number one hit in 1963. But before that, a group called The Pendletones was singing about the California surfing scene, who took a liking to Pendleton's board shirts, which were used for surfing, due to the wool being an insulant. The Pendletones eventually changed their name to the Beach Boys, but kept their uniform of Pendleton Board Shirts worn over tee shirts with khakis. The band wore this blue and charcoal plaid shirt on the covers of 45s and LPs throughout the 1960s. This collection is a throwback to those times, giving you a feeling of surf culture and those laid back days at the beach,
