There is something to be said for Patagonia’s foresight. They created some of the coolest, and loudest clothing WAY before Old Row and the like have done their darnedest to make it cool again. The pieces that stood out for me were the Snap-Ts. This iconic piece is burned into pre-Frat, Frat, and Post-Grad lore, and were a nod to the ‘who gives a sh!t if it matches’ crew. Which was pretty much all of us. I wasn’t as into the patterns as some, instead opting for the solid designs. I had a red, a blue, ‘oatmeal’ that everyone had, and an orange one. I found a green one at Goodwill, and actually wear it duck hunting. Fleece works folks, and there are a bunch of companies who are on the bandwagon. Few do it like Patagonia.
Patagonia still sells Snap Ts today, but they aren’t as cool as the vintage jobs. They are few and far between on eBay and other vintage sites, but they can usually be found at about 50% of retail (max). Here is a roundup of a few good examples:
