Out on the west coast of Ireland, Patagonia Surf Ambassador Tom Doidge-Harrison spends his time chasing waves and honing his craft shaping surfboards. “You don’t need all this stuff,” says Tom as he talks about the jacket he’s shaped five hundred boards in, “you just need one that works properly and try to make it last as long as you can.” Our clothes not only serve us with warmth and protection, they carry our stories — surfboard foam shavings and all. That’s what makes them worth hanging onto, repairing and using as long as possible; a virtue that comes naturally to Tom.
