One of the newer brands featured at "Herb’s" this Fall is Patagonia. Although we’ve been carrying Patagonia for a few years, in Fall 2017 we broadened our selection of styles and rolled out apparel into all of our nine stores and our website.

The appeal of the brand spans generations. Some of us remember Patagonia from the 1970’s when it first made noise in the outdoor world. But millennials have re-discovered the brand and are becoming avid supporters of the brand and its message.

That message includes supporting Fair Trade practices. Most of the products we carry, such as the Better Sweater and the Snap-T, are Fair Trade Certified sewing. Patagonia also takes great care to source materials and to use processes that are minimally harmful to our environment. They also donate a minimum of 1% of their sales to environmental causes. Over the years this has generated over $90 million in donations!

All that’s important, right, but how’s the product?! Is the apparel attractive? Is it comfortable? Does it wear well? The answers are yes; yes; and yes! Patagonia offers classic, well-constructed apparel that’s perfect for outdoor life in Central New York. The company also offers an Ironclad Guarantee that if you are not satisfied with any Patagonia product, or if the product does not perform to your satisfaction, you may return it to Patagonia for repair, replacement or refund.

So, come on it to Herb’s and try on a Patagonia Better Sweater; a Snap-T; a Retro-X jacket or vest; or other fun fall pieces. We think you’ll be pleased.

Welcome to the "Herb’s" family, Patagonia!
