Tommy Bahama and Pendleton Woolen Mills have joined forces on a new collaboration that celebrates these two iconic lifestyle brands’ love of the great outdoors and commitment to quality and style. This comes to life in the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collection of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, and home products. Tommy Bahama, based in Seattle, WA, and Pendleton®, based in Portland, OR, share a Pacific Northwest sensibility and a unique appreciation of the outdoor lifestyle and love of the beach and the surf.
Combining their boundless dedication to open-air living, Tommy Bahama & Pendleton features the signature level of comfort, style, and quality that Tommy Bahama and Pendleton guests have come to expect. The brands’ shared sensibilities and authentic values are exemplified in two, new collaborative fabric patterns: the Aloha Harding Print unites Pendleton’s Harding design with overlaid tropical florals and the Island Serape Stripe features a tropical leaf pattern jacquard with Pendleton’s classic blanket stripe. These fabric patterns are used in a men’s vest, cardigan, camp shirt, and swim trunk and in a women’s serape poncho, dress, blouse, swim and activewear along with blankets, coffee mugs and more. Adding to the special nature of the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collaboration, fabrics and blankets are made exclusively in Pendleton’s own Pacific Northwest mills for this collection.
This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Tommy Bahama, the iconic island lifestyle brand that defines relaxed, sophisticated style in men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories, footwear, and a complete home furnishing collection. A successful retailer and pioneer in the concept of the combined restaurant and retail sites, Tommy Bahama locations allow guests to fully experience its hospitality and the brand anthem… Long Live the Island Life.
Tommy Bahama is part of Tommy Bahama Group, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Oxford Industries, Inc. With corporate headquarters in Seattle, Tommy Bahama owns and operates over 160 Tommy Bahama retail locations worldwide, 18 of which offer a Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar.
“For 25 years, Tommy Bahama’s mission has been to Live the Island Life,” said Bradley O’Brien, EVP of Product Design for Tommy Bahama. “To celebrate this milestone, we have partnered with Pendleton Woolen Mills on this unique collaboration. Warm, stylish, relaxed and approachable are the essential elements, which dovetail our two brands. It is a true celebration of the simple pleasures of living the good life on the beach, in the mountains or in your own backyard.”
