It is easy to understand why Patagonia clothing is in my list of top clothing brands, not only is the quality top notch but they aren't just a big brand looking to capitalise on a crowded market.
You may pay a premium for some of their items but when you take into consideration their guarantee you aren't just buying the clothing but also an insurance policy. I've heard of people taking in a several year old jumper that has seen better days and had a no-questions replacement offered!
Why Patagonia Clothing?
The Ironclad Guarantee.
We guarantee everything we make. If you are not satisfied with one of our products at the time you receive it, or if one of our products does not perform to your satisfaction, return it to the store you bought it from or to Patagonia for a repair, replacement or refund. Damage due to wear and tear will be repaired at a reasonable charge.
They Are Considerate.
We have exclusively used 100% organic cotton (and recycled cotton) in our line since 1996. Now we’re taking our commitment even further by growing the cotton in our clothes with Regenerative Organic methods. The highest organic standard, this farming method supports people and animals working together to restore the health of our planet to create a brighter future.
They Give Back.
Since 1985, Patagonia has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. We've awarded over $89 million in cash and in-kind donations to domestic and international grassroots environmental groups making a difference in their local communities. In 2002, founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard, and Craig Mathews, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, created a non-profit corporation to encourage other businesses to do the same.
