The 30 Year Sweatshirt Is Supposedly Guaranteed To Last You Three Decades
There's always that one piece of clothing that you cherish forever, but eventually, you're forced to break down and purchase a new item. Whether it be those perfect pajama pants or the greatest pair of jeans you've ever worn, everyone has something. If your something is a sweatshirt, then you're in luck. The 30 Year Sweatshirt by Tom Cridland is giving you a comfort piece to last for three decades.
Lately, there's been quite a bit of media coverage concerning fast fashion. For those of you who may not know, fast fashion is the creation of goods at a rapid pace in order to fully utilize a consumer's desire for the latest trend. Many, however, have been criticizing this moment for creating subpar quality items and promoting trends that are fleeting as opposed to more classic styles. Tom Cridland is one of those critics, and thus, the magic sweatshirt— as I'm calling it— isn't simply a long lasting coverup. Instead, it's an ethically sourced, artisan made top which is precisely where it get its longevity.
The crewneck sweatshirt is created by artisans in Portugal and made of 80% organic cotton and 20% polyester. The blend prevents changes in shape and size of the top, and the best part is that if your shirt rips in some way before the 30 year marker, Tom Cridland and company will repair it for free!
The sweater's price is marked at a wholesale value of $85, but if we do the math, that's kind of a steal. Afterall, you are going to have this for the next thirty years.
