Doing Good Is Good For Business
Inspired by a world of virgin forests, glaciers, snowy mountains, rivers and volcanoes, Patagonia appeals to nature-lovers, thrill-seekers and creatives alike.
Patagonia is known for its commitment to sustainable fashion, having started out from humble origins in 1973. Back then, Yvon Chouinard nursed the early embers of this visionary brand, selling handmade climbing equipment.
Now, the business has mastered the art of non-marketing ploys and being an antidote to mindless consumerism. Loyal customers return each year, drawn to the company’s mission and care for the planet.
Patagonia openly states on their website that the ‘climate crisis poses an existential threat…’. That is why they are making moves to address every aspect of their business where accountability is implicated.
In short, the fight’s on every front and it involves all of us. That’s partly why Patagonia supports community-led efforts to secure a fossil-fuel-free future. Their unifying vision is fixed on improving life for all of us.
So, let’s explore a selection of Gifts For Him from this Patagonia gift guide for men as we wend our way into the holiday season:
10. Brodeo Beanie
First up, this classic cuff beanie is the perfect gift for any outdoor explorer. It’s warm, comfortable and made from a recycled wool and nylon blend – note that it also came from a Fair Trade Certified™ factory.
The easy-wearing yarn blend feels great, with a snug fit that you can easily loosen if you need to. The rib-knit cuff is an additional feature we love and another reason to get this one under the Christmas tree in time for the holiday season.
9. Digital Gift Card
A great gift for anyone in your life who loves all things Patagonia. The Patagonia digital gift card is just what you need when you start to wander their collection, picking out your favourite items.
This is one sure way to keep your loved one happy this Christmas. Set them up to storm the virtual aisles of their favourite store, wielding the card that unlocks access to all their favourite things.
To use the card, simply apply the provided code after checkout. The code will be sent via email within 24 hours, but it is only redeemable in the US (Patagonia.com) and at retail stores and outlets.
8. Range Earflap Cap
We love the mid-crown Range Earflap Cap – let’s start with that. Stay cosy and warm in a flannel-lined hat with snug earflaps and a denim bill. Ear coverings can be easily flipped down or lifted if conditions turn on you.
The style of the mid-crown cap is unique and unobtrusive as well. The shorter brim keeps the sun out of your eyes, but also doesn’t obscure your view.
7. Men’s Long-Sleeved Snowstitcher Pocket Responsibili-Tee®
You grow passionate about being outdoors you learn exactly why nature needs to be protected. This long-sleeved T-shirt represents the ethos that made this brand so popular around the world.
The print shows a skier working to mend the peaks that form his playground. The T-shirt itself was made with 100% recycled fabric, utilising recycled bottles and fabric leftovers. Thereby this has the lowest carbon footprint of any Patagonia T-shirt.
6. Corduroy Cap
Next, we’ve picked out a stylish Corduroy Cap with a brim made from Bureo’s fully traceable NetPlus® 100% recycled fishing nets. The organic cotton corduroy looks great in a six-panel design – a perfect choice for days on the beaches and trails.
You’ll appreciate the crown-tape lining and comfortable inner sweatband, which is made from itch-free organic cotton canvas.
5. Men’s Long-Sleeved Organic Cotton Midweight Fjord Flannel Shirt
Who doesn’t love a comfortable cotton flannel shirt? This midweight, long-sleeved option is made from 100% organic cotton and ideally suited for everyday layering and additional warmth.
The materials are warm and durable in this traditional collared shirt with long sleeves, chest patch pockets with button closure and a buttoned front – a suitable look and feel for any adventure.
4. Men’s Reversible Bivy Down Vest
This Bivy Down Vest is another great companion on the trails – it’s water-resistant and reversible, as well as being insulated with a fleece lining that combines warmth, functionality and strength.
Aside from the water-resistant shell and recycled down insulation, you might also appreciate several neat design features. Note the front snap-placket, down-filled collar and side-entry handwarmer pockets.
3. Men’s Classic Retro-X® Fleece Jacket
Taking things back to the good old days, this classic fleece jacket is warm, windproof and made from 100% polyester (50%-85% recycled).
The design has a cosy fleece exterior and mesh backer, as well as a full zipper with an internal wind flap. This jacket rises to the occasion when it comes to escaping the bite of blustery weather.
2. Men’s Down Sweater Hoody
While we’re on the subject of keeping you warm, check out this classic Down Sweater Hoody, which is lightweight and windproof too. You can take on pretty much any activity, wrapped in a shell of NetPlus® recycled nylon ripstop, made from fishing nets to reduce the impact of ocean plastics.
The hoody is insulated with 800-fill-power 100% Responsible Down Standard down. You can wear this assured that it was made with better animal welfare practices in both the down and feather supply chain.
Not only is this option an example of Patagonia’s standards of ethical production, but it also looks and feels great when you’re out and about in the wilds.
1. Heavyweight Wool Knee Socks
Last pick on our list – it wouldn’t be a Christmas without a new pair of socks, right? Well, Patagonia’s itch-free socks are made from merino wool blended with nylon and polyurethane for optimal stretch and durability.
These incredible socks are heavyweight, warm and breathable, with a mesh arch brace for a snug fit. You can pull these up to knee height for all-day comfort and protection in boots as well.
You’ll find these woollen beauties are an ideal stocking filler – who doesn’t appreciate socks within a sock? Watch faces light up as folk envision a satisfying future on easy-going feet.
