Pendleton
x Hurley

When you think Pendleton, you likely think blankets and the chilly climates of the Pacific Northwest. But back in the '60s, no surfer worth his salt was without his wool "boardshirt," by Pendleton. So it's fitting that the Portland woolen mill has collaborated with a company most known for their board shorts, Hurley. The two teamed up to bring back the plaid shirts, along with a few caps and jackets. The reintroduced styles feature a softer wool and a slightly trimmer fit, making for an ideal coverup in these transitional times, when the sun and temperature fade by five o'clock. The collection hits stores today, giving you plenty of time to pick one up—either for your winter ski (or surf) trip or perhaps as a gift for Dad. Let him relive the Beach Boys fantasies of his youth.

The Beach Boys, who often sported the shirts, were originally called the "Pendletones."
