The first Patagonia shirts were based on colorful but durable rugby shirts. While on a 1970 winter climbing trip to Scotland, founder Yvon Chouinard had the chance to try out local rugby shirts. When he returned to the U.S., fellow climbers showed interest in the design and a unique style of shirts was born. Patagonia shirts are made from organic fibers or one of several recyclable Capilene® fabrics, providing air-conditioned comfort in hot weather or moisture-wicking warmth retention in winter.
