New Arrivals: Let'er Buck Cologne

In the beginning, the PENDLETON ROUND-UP was hailed as “a frontier exhibition of picturesque pastimes, Indian and Military spectacles, cowboy racing and bronco busting for the championship of the Northwest.”  A crowd of 7,000 gathered for the first show on September 19, 1910.
Through two world wars and a great depression, the Round-Up persevered. Spectators from across the U.S. and around the world made the trek to Pendleton in larger and larger numbers.  A century on, more than 50,000 people descend on Pendleton every year for the four-day show.  And the phrase that embodies it all: LET’ER BUCK! 

Let' er Buck Cologne $85.00

To celebrate the 100 years of Pendleton Rodeo a cologne has been created using 
 top citrus notes mixed with alluring spices and warm soft woods.
The cologne bottle itself sits within the Tin can (on left) for easy traveling.
