      Actually, Pendleton has a much richer history than just mixing two existing styles. See this blog post & this one too to learn more about the organic history of Pendleton.

      Pendletons are made of locally sourced wool from Oregon. Flannels are made from cotton. Although there are “Western Grade” Pendletons which are tailored in the style of a Western shirt, Pendleton makes all kinds of shirts in different classic styles.

      But as for Pendletons (& just about everything else), some people like it & others don’t. Isn’t that what makes the world interesting?
