Patagonia’s Worn Wear campaign, stunning in concept and potentially disruptive to the outdoor industry, is precisely why I’m inclined to hold Patagonia to a higher social standard than those of their competitors.

The film, which is actually a series of vignettes knitted together by Yvon’s voiceovers, becomes predictable and somewhat preachy after the second profile, you’ve got to love that the Ventura crew is buttressing their Re-Use campaign with some serious resources.

Might we soon see the day when outdoorsniks take pride in rocking well-seasoned gear rather than the season’s latest styles and colors?

I hope so.

You can find the film here.
