Special Edition for The Globe, Arnhem
William Dehen formed Dehen Knitting Company in 1920 and built his business by knitting unique heavyweight wool sweaters that withstood the test of time. Dehen now continues to provide crafted products, still made in Portland, Oregon, often on machines that are older than the people that operate them. Seen on sidelines through the 50’s and 60’s, Dehen’s V-Neck pullover was a staple for yell leaders, coaches and student athletes.
Re-launched for Autumn 2011, the Dehen line showcases their latest collection of well built jackets and sweaters – all featuring the same details and stitch work found on their vintage garments. The Japanese, of course, helped bring the Dehen name back onto the playing field. The Globe, Arnhem has their own special heavyweight wool V-neck sweater in Burgundy & Black. This sweater has "1969" instead of the brands "1920" on the chest.
