最后,Carhartt和Dickies现在有了一种合乎道德和实用的工作服替代选择。

巴塔哥尼亚 is one of those companies that 真的很突出不仅因为其高质量和设计标准,还因为其对社会和环境的责任。而且,尽管有些客户可能因其声誉而选择巴塔哥尼亚服装和装备,但许多其他客户还是忠实的购买者,因为这些产品针对其特定目的制作得非常好,并且使用寿命很长。

However, like any high quality product, the costs are a bit higher than your run-of-the-mill alternatives, but when considering the overall value of the products (how well they work and last, and how rugged and repairable they are), 巴塔哥尼亚 items end up being a heckuva deal in the long run. And now 公司 is making a bid to dress not only the outdoors crowd, but also the workers, artisans, and 手crafters that build, labor, and serve indoors and out, in all kinds of conditions, in its new rugged hemp clothing line.

巴塔哥尼亚工作服系列似乎与目前的成衣产品有些偏离,但它'实际上是向 公司's earliest days, when founder Yvon Chouinard, a pioneering big wall climber, saw a solution to replace single-use iron pitons, which were the standard protection option for climbing up through the 1950s. He bought a used coal forge and anvil and learned how to forge reusable steel pitons, eventually moving 进入 the now iconic Tin Shed which sits behind 公司 headquarters to this day. Heavy-duty clothing to stand up to the rigors of climbing big walls and exploring the outdoors came next, and is a mainstay of 公司 to this day, although with a decidedly modern look and feel to them.

However, this new Workwear line is like a throwback to the early days of 手 forging, based on traditional work clothing. Blacksmithing, especially with a coal forge, is an arduous and rather dirty work, requiring clothing that can stand up to the heat, the dirt, and the constant abrasion, and many other professions need this same quality of rugged work wear, so this new line seems like a natural fit for 巴塔哥尼亚.

工作服系列的核心是Iron Forge大麻帆布,它是一种创新的12.9盎司混合物,其中包含55%的大麻(不含农药),27%的再生聚酯和18%的有机棉。当我说出来's innovative, I'我不仅要在那儿乱说,因为这种麻布真是太神奇了。一世've been wearing Carhartt cotton work pants for years, both the heavy double-knee version and the lighter weight version, and have owned a number of hemp clothing items over the years, so I think I have a good feel for the current standards of both work wear and hemp fabrics, and the Iron Forge Hemp fabric is a whole different animal altogether. I had the opportunity to 手le some of the material and clothing from the Workwear line earlier this year, and was incredibly impressed by not only the fabric, but also the meticulous attention to details that 巴塔哥尼亚 designs 进入 its gear right from the get-go.

虽然有一双新的重型Carhartt裤子刚硬到可以自己站起来,但用Iron Forge大麻帆布制成的Patagonia Double Knee裤子又柔软又柔软,以至于比亚麻更像亚麻而不是帆布,并且据说材料是"耐磨性比传统的棉鸭帆布高25%。" There'无需磨合期,也不会因穿着这种新工作服而产生擦伤或烦人的嘶哑声,而且重量和感觉都非常舒适。另一方面,早期的大麻服装就像粗麻布或帆布帆布一样,甚至混纺也给它们带来刮擦的感觉,而新型的Iron Forge Hemp材料摸起来绝对柔软。据该公司称,织物的成分中包含一些有机棉和一些再生聚酯,使其柔软"hand"并允许更紧密的编织,这也是日常工作穿着的必要条件。

尽管新生产线包括几件工作衬衫和夹克,但我还是更加注意裤子的细节,因为我'我臭名昭著地靠自己的裤子,对每天穿的衣服都很挑剔。例如,口袋经常被错误地放在衣服上,皮带环和加固物通常很薄弱,而很多时候却没有为做手工工作所需的实际运动范围设计任何容差。与巴塔哥尼亚'然而,从裤子的内置安全袋到完成缝线,再到褶皱和角撑板,再到宽大的皮带环,再到关键点的加固物,一切都融入其中。它确实说明了公司评估和满足其产品实际用户需求的能力(并帮助员工都是服装的狂热爱好者),并从现场测试中获得了实用的反馈意见,以评估并进一步完善产品。

坦率地说,我'这个新产品系列给我留下了深刻的印象,很可能会排队购买一条Double Knee裤子和Ranch夹克来代替我的陈旧Carhartt帆布外套。一世'm not really 'into'衣服,但是我确实知道我喜欢什么,它融合了实用性和耐用性,适合每天穿着,这些绝对合算。裤子79美元,它'大约是我在其他一条帆布工作服裤子上的花费的两倍,但是在手感,设计以及手感和好感方面(大麻,有机棉和再生聚酯纤维,以及缝制在经公平贸易认证的设施中)表明,它们的总价值很容易超过两倍。它'很难从照片中真正看出织物和衣服的样子,但是我'我坚信它会自我推销,因为一旦您尝试使用Iron Forge Hemp帆布制成的产品,您将赢得'不想脱掉它。

"我们的工作服系列专为满足男性和女性的需求而打造,他们正在将实际的环境解决方案付诸实践,重新定义了真正的意义。该公司早在铁锻造方面就已经扎根,我们对保护的长期承诺以及对有机再生农业的前瞻性投资使我们处于有利位置,可以为需要真正工作服的人们提供最好的产品,并得到Ironclad Guarantee的支持。"-Patagonia工作服业务总监Ed Auman
