Patagonia is awesome. Still rocking my first Skinny Lin's thanks to their lifelong free repairs. Now they even stepped up their game. I hope this can be scaled immensely.
I appreciate the idea!, but I see the vest I wouldn’t wear even if someone paid me to do so, and the 257$ price tag on it, so..
@1337en I agree that the price point has to be lower before this could become a mainstream idea. But there's a lot of labor involved so I don't think it's an unreasonable price.
257 for Patagonia repurposed? I'll just buy some YSL or Louis Vuitton for that lol
My hot take: I think it's actually smart for Patagonia to make the price point high-- it's evn more of a Veblen good this way. (A Veblen good is something which demand increases as the price increases, because of its exclusivity and appeal as a status symbol). Patagucci is pretty common these days- but a one of a kind Patagonia limited edition that has built-in virtue signaling? That's actually pretty genius. Well done.
It's very refreshing to see brands in fashion pay attention to climate change and pollution. This is much better than unusable clothes sitting in landfills for many years only to degrade into more synthetic and toxic waste. Do you think more fashion brands would start doing similar initiatives? 🤔
Yes
Doubtful
