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.

i dont give a shit about brand ethics

I bought a near-mint patagonia flannel at a non profit thrift store whose profits go local animal shelters and finding pets new homes. Copped for $15. I couldn't fucking believe it.

Patagonia is the shit.... Yvon Chouinard, the guy that started it is one of my heroes and I'd much rather buy from them than any other company.

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.

I always prefer to buy things made in Australia, USA, Japan etc. but goddamn it can be expensive

>>9744337
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 don't see what the big deal is on dishing out >$100 on a shirt you know is going to be worn for half a decade.

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
