Pennington & Bailes was founded by Mel Pennington and Tygh Bailes in 2005 to fill a void in collegiate sportswear - top quality fabrics combined with classic style and preppy flair. Mel and Tygh came up with the idea while tailgating at a South Carolina football game in 2003. Tygh traveled south from the Old Dominion for a great weekend of football and tailgating in the Palmetto State with Mel and friends. He showed up wearing a pair of embroidered pants that drew a lot of attention on game day and they quickly realized they could take the tried-and-true preppy look to a new level. After long hours spent on research and design the very first pair of Stadium Pants was sold online on June 30, 2006 purchased by a rabid, yet stylish, Gamecock fan. Since then we have sold thousands of pants and have expanded the men’s line and added lady’s and children’s clothing. Our goal is to create the highest quality, best fitting, collegiate inspired clothing. If you are passionate and love your team’s colors the way we do, but hesitate to wear a jersey or t-shirt to show off that pride, then you’ve come to the right place. Thank you for taking time to visit Pennington & Bailes, we hope you enjoy browsing the website and find what you’re looking for. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to drop us a line or give us a call. You can even hit us up on facebook or twitter. We couldn’t have done this without our friends and loyal customers. To you we owe all the gratitude in the world. We will continue to design and produce clothing you will be proud to wear for many seasons to come. Thank you, Mel & Tygh
