These guys stole my idea. I was thinking of writing up a business model where clothing manufacturers gave their clothes to homeless people to wear to "distress" the clothes. The manufacturer would then trade in the old distressed clothing and wash and resell to customers since the trends these days are for the "distressed" look. It is a win/win for everyone. Why phaux-distress something when you can ACTUALLY distress it by getting homeless to wear it in their life for a couple months? Plus you clothe the homeless so this plan is not all altruistic.

??? This is already happening!! You ever see kids in Africa wear shirts of teams that didn't win the championships but the shirt says champions? Clothes are donated.

Used Patagonia clothing sells on ebay like collectors items at a premium price. People must be buying it.

I find it hilarious that you actually think you've come up with this idea.

I'm just going to roam Chicago and buy clothes off homeless people and mark it up 3000% by selling it next to Supreme in New York.

Guaranteed for every idea that "makes it" it has been thought of 1,000 times before but could not be acted upon. All it takes is tons of money (which 99% of people do not have the quantity necessary) for patents, branding, retail locations, employees, marketing.... and still after all that it might be a bust.

Agree 100%. Over the past few months I sold a jacket, 2 fleece sweaters , and a vest on ebay for more than I originally paid for them (originally purchased them on sale)

It's pretty crazy. Patagonia is the Apple of clothing on ebay. Holds its value.

Added a few things to my cart which were supposed to be held for 30 min, but they disappeared when I went to check out. Still able to get a couple good items.

Site needs a ton of work: displays sold out items, basic filters make searching a pain and it seems to be all winter/cold weather gear. Was hoping to see bags and other stuff, bah.

I see the snickering in the thread here but the WW program at Patagucci is for real:

https://wornwear.patagonia.com/

I participated in a recent event where they happily repaired two capilene balaclavas for free and sent a bib back for a factory repair and sent it back to me for free. They back their products to the hilt and do it for free. If you check the above link, they are making the college rounds and repairing non-Patagucci stuff a s well(my recently attended event was Patagucci only).
For SD'rs: For personal use, the R1 P/O, down sweaters(especially the ultralight), any hoodies, and patterned fleece snap-T are good buys.
Patagucci, Arcteryx, Outdoor Research, and Marmot are expedition ready product companies so you can buy with confidence.
