Just curious, does what a brand stand for/ how ethical it is effect whether you purchase from it or not?
I personally think that when it comes to brand ethics Patagonia has the best quality gear and they produce it in the most humane and sustainable way.
>want to buy Patagonia because i like their corporate ethics
>their corporate ethics also include "don't buy our shit to replace shit you already own if it works fine, that's pretty wasteful breh."
How can someone hate on patagonia, like seriously, unless you are a jealous poor nigga, or a brand victim of northface or someshit.
Also does anyone know of other brands with similar quality and brand ethics?
fuck yeah, I have a 55% hemp Patagonia button up thingy that was my dad's a while ago, which means it's about three or four sizes too big for me (he a big nigga lmao). I love seeing my girl wearing it and nothing else. Patagonia is the shit.
gonna post my favourite patagonia gear for aesthetics
Some of Patagonia's stuff is nice, but in general the quality or design isn't going to knock your socks off. I'd much rather get arc'teryx for technical/outdoor wear. Ultimately quality and design trump corporate ethics for me when it comes to human labor.
I would have no problem buying a jacket, shirt, pants or something like that but spending a substantial amount on a t-shirt that I'll spill coffee on or the neckline will stretch is a little hard for me to do
