Pendleton's Topster made its debut in 1950. This unlined jacket was originally going to be called "the Playmate." But before it hit the wholesale markets, the name was changed to the "Topster" to work with an Esquire magazine "Mr. T." promotion. "T" stood for "trim," and the gist of the "Mr. T." fit was the adoption of a new cut in menswear, a move away from the baggy cuts of the forties that had culminated in the Zoot Suit.

The Topster was an unconstructed jacket, meaning it had no lining and no shoulder pads. It featured a jacket's hem and lapel, but the sleeves were finished with a shirt's traditional button cuff. Three patch pockets held just about everything a man could ever want to carry, making it quite suitable as a smoking jacket; remember, in those days, smoking was touted for its health benefits, so designing attire for it made sense.

Assembled in Mexico using fabric woven in USA.
