PENDLETON Black Mesa Navajo Button Front Jacket£420.00
When we get sent PR bumf from certain brands telling us all about the "story" we tend to drop into the foetal position and pray it'll all be over soon.
It's different with PENDLETON. Having been crafting great gear since 1863, the American behemoths deserve as much time as they are willing to give us.
After all, a jacket like this deserves a story. Probably a whole novel, to be fair. At the very least it's almost certainly going to end up on the back of a villain in a forthcoming COEN BROTHERS film.
PENDLETON take up the story: "New Mexico's Navajo weavers produce weavings born of a centuries-old tradition. This art was a gift of Spider Woman, who lives at the top of Spider Rock in Canyon de Chelly.
She was tasked by the gods to create a map of the universe. She experimented with moving her threads through the branches of trees.
Through trial and error, she developed the art of weaving, a gift she shared with the ancient Dine people."
This classic combo of black and white places a dynamic pattern front and back. Crafted from luxurious wool it comes fully lined and features a button front with button cuffs, two outside pockets and one interior pocket.
