The best is often the perfect lil something in an office where the thermostat is set a tad too low

I got to two minutes and and just could not watch the semaphore waving arms anymore. Srsly. Relax.

I've worked in tech companies as well as in fintech in SF. People in tech do not wear the fleece vests, but the vest is worn in fintech.

Aaaaaand I'm definitely buying Patagonia from now on. I had no idea how awesome these guys were until now. And I say fuck yeah make those techies start to look beyond themselves! Among the types of people I see who care little for the environment (and make up a substantial subset of the alt-right movement) mid-town techs DEFINITELY are a significant chunk. Keep fighting the good fight Patagonia!

Well you’re a white young guy so yea you can pull it off

I love this story, for some reason! Now, let me continue checking my FoxTrot automation processes.

that mid town uniform is what brits from the countryside wear every day, ironic to see lambing outfit being used in the city.

Of course you can pull off the midtown uniform, Phil! ... It unzips. 😂

I have no problem with what The North Face did. Actively turning down business with a company known to harm the environment makes sense. Denying companies simply because they don't match their "mission statement" seems snooty and elitist to me

This just in:
Nike stops selling yoga pants to white girls who don’t own a yoga mat./s

Another reason why they wear vests: way easier to type in a vest.

I actually loved the patagonia story

I don't know about finance, but the vests probably got big in the tech sector because servers rooms are cold AF, and they have more pockets. Nerds like practical.

omg my bf dresses like this (he's a landscaper) cos his boss gave him a vest at work. but its not for fashion...its for comfort. warmth.

Why should an outdoor, sporting brand be beholden to being a financial market uniform? They have a brand image they want to protect, and they dont want that to be fratty finance bros

3 months ago

I think you look good with what you wear Phil! Your choice of attire in your videos suit you

3 months ago

A vest is the quickest way to add pockets to a business casual look. It's functional and comfy. And a coat would be too warm to wear indoors.

power symbol? vests have always looked dumb

So let me see if I got this right: You CAN choose NOT to do business with someone who doesn't hold the same views as you do, unless you're a cake baker?

Laborers in the elements? Really? Patagonia is not what I would figure most farm hands can afford to buy. That's fucking ridiculous.

2:29 the status on the left back moved...something strange happened in the background...

Sweat holy fuck, I feel like I just went on a full on fever dream listening to you explain the complexities of people wearing vests and why they want these vest and how they are panicking about not getting them. How is this a concern for people..

Why are auto captions always disabled?

3 months ago

I'll take downtown over midtown any day. 900 dollars for that vest? Kevlar vests are cheaper than that, and way better than fleece. Sure, I've 200-300 for boots or a jacket, but those Doc's last forever.

This is HILARIOUS

Even if it was just greenwashing .... in my eyes every company that does this is a Hero .... this just throws it in the faces of globalwarming sceptics ... there is alot of work ahead of us :S
