    Beside it being a shirt that's made from recycled bits, why should I spend $40 for this? Serious question.

    • Main reason? Because no one has been able to make an automated sewing machine. Fabric bunches up when sewing so you need someone who can feel the process and straighten it out as they go. Thus we get cheap tshirts via paying people 3c an hour in Bangladesh in shitty working conditions rather than someone who gets paid properly. Patagonia pay people properly.

      Cotton is also a water-intensive product, which can be damaging. Something like 26% of irrigation in Australia is used on cotton which screws with the Murray Darling basin. India and Brazil grow a lot of cotton, which in India means less water for people who need it and Brazil means bulldozing forests to grow cotton. A lot of companies could switch to more recycled materials but simply don't, because it's hard. It involves a whole lot of people in a company making their job harder to make a change across the entire thing that makes your products cost more. And then your competitors demolish you because most people don't care.

      Realistically, we should be able to get $6 tshirts for $10 that use sustainable water usage, recycling and better conditions for workers (you could easily pay the 5 times as much and it would only add a couple of bucks per shirt) the options are buying a Patagonia tshirt for 5 times as much, because they're the only ones who make sustainable products but don't sell very many of them so need huge margins to maintain their whole setup.

      So the tl;dr reason, because unless people start voting with their wallets, shit will never change. Granted, buying a $40 tshirt probably won't change anything either.

      • Thanks for explaining that. Here's an upvote for your time. :)

      • Well said. People buy so much stuff they don't need, from people who are so terribly exploited. We need to ask questions and think about our actions.

    • Since noone really answered.

      The cost isn't about the materials.

      Or (in this case) special techniques used for manufacture.

      It's not even about the country of origin.

      Patagonia as a brand puts sustainability and environment as top priorities. They donate a percentage of every dollar the make to sustain causes, and not some bullshit Bill Gates tax deduction style system.

      • You can almost always track the materials to their source

      • The manufacturers are paid properly - even if they manufacture from Vietnam

      • The workers have proper conditions

      • Dyes used normally follow responsible practices and EU standards.

      • They are increasingly manufacturing from recycled plastics such as bottles and fishing nets.

      Another important feature of Patagonia is they will REPAIR clothing where possible at either no or little cost. They even have a website to buy upcycled versions of old goods they renew.

      Is there a premium associated with the brand not covered by these reasons?
      In my opinion yes. Plenty of non-outdoorsy people latched on and comparatively I still find it 20-30% overpriced.

      Beats sending money to the CCP.

    • You'll be respected when shopping at whole foods or your inner-city vegan cafe.

  • So Patagonian surfboards are yellow??

  • Gonna need one of these before I head to Cancun.

  • OOS for pick up and postage kills the deal

  • I'm very happy to pay this to support what patagonia do.

  • This brand is called Patagucci for a reason,and the franchised store where I live has a sandwich board at the front door with "in business to save the planet"……oh pleeeeeeeeease
