Patagonia Worn Wear Tour

We reckon a little TLC can restore that much-loved piece of clothing back to its former glory and that's why we've teamed up with Patagonia to bring you the Worn Wear Tour.
This simple act of extending the life of our garments through proper care and repair reduces the need to buy more over time and it's good for the environment too as it avoids CO2 emissions, waste output and water usage required to build it.
Visit the Worn Wear team at Ellis Brigham for free repairs on your GORE-TEX products, garments and other items including busted zips, rips, tears, buttons and more (they fix all brands). They will also show you how to make simple repairs on clothes that have a second life left in them.
