Founded by William Peter Dehen in 1920, Dehen Knitting Company produces classic and traditional U.S. heavyweight apparel.
In the 1920´s they began knitting varsity and collegiate sweaters for student athletes. In the 30´s they started supplying local motorcycle clubs with riding sweaters. In the 5o´s they added the Varsity Jacket to their repertoire, making each jacket by hand to the specification of each individual lucky enough to letter in his or her sport.
Today, well into their tenth decade, Dehen continues a tradition of heavy duty, quality manufacturing while actually producing their goods in Portland. Value is built into every garment that Dehen makes.
We are very proud to sell some of their rich and heavyweight apparel. Once you wear it, you never want to take it off again.
