AMERICANA Classic Vintage Sponsors Helsinki Vintage

Since we were not able to make it in person this time to sell our American vintage clothing, we’ve found another way to participate in Helsinki Vintage.

Helsinki Vintage October 2, 2011

AMERICANA will be sponsoring the event’s goody bags which will be given to the first 100 attendees through the door. The bags will contain one of AMERICANA’s vintage bandanas along with some more goodies from the other sponsors as well.

So if you’re in Helsinki this Sunday, we highly recommend that you go to Kaapelitehdas for the weekend’s best event. And don’t forget to get there early to get a goody bag from AMERICANA!

Vintage Gant C.P.O

C.P.O.s are solid or plaid heavy wool flannel shirt-jackets that have either a quilted or fake fur lining.  C.P.O.s are named after U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officers, or non-commissioned officers, who wore similar shirt-jackets as part of their uniform.

Vintage Filson C.P.O.

Famous brands include Woolrich, Filson and Campus.  Although they convey that rugged mountain man vibe, C.P.O.s are more often seen these days on urban types.

Vintage Woolrich C.P.O.

At one time, even the Boy Scouts of America had a red C.P.O. that was part of the uniform.  Members sewed merit badges onto the backside.

Pendleton Wool Is Woven Into America’s History

Founded in 1863, Pendleton has been family-run business for six generations.  Since the company’s beginnings, it has produced almost all of its Indian blankets and clothing in the Pacific Northwest.

Although Pendleton first made blankets for trade with Native Americans, they have been producing wool shirts since 1924. For nearly a century, Pendleton has used the same size yarn to produce Umatilla wool that comes from the same sheep at Cunningham Ranch and other local farms in Oregon and Washington.

The Beach Boys (a.k.a. The Pendletones)

Pendleton gained widespread fame through surfers and California pop music.  When the Beach Boys first got together in 1961, the band was called the Pendletones.  Pendleton Woolen Mill sent the band a letter advising them they could not use the name. So the Beach Boys were born.  Later, in 1963, the band wore matching Pendleton shirts for the album cover for “Surfer Girl.”

Founded in 1919, Champion is a sportswear company who gave the world mesh fabric, sports bras and reversible t-shirts. The brand is produced today by Hanes, which is an underwear and t-shirt manufacturer, based in North Carolina.

The Champion brand is a cornerstone of urban hip-hop fashion.  One of the staples of American rappers since the 1990s has been a Champion oversized hooded sweatshirt, or “hoodie.”  The company has also produced uniforms for college sports teams and for the National Basketball Association (NBA).
