Patagonia has filed a lawsuit against GAP alleging that the US company has copied its signature Snap-T jersey.

For over thirty years, Patagonia has been implementing a specific pocket design in its iconic wool Snap-T pullover, which GAP has now included in one of its fleece jackets.

Because of this similarity, the brand founded by Yvon Chouinard filed a lawsuit in federal court in San Francisco on Tuesday.  In it, he explains in detail the illegal copying of his button-flap pocket design and the rectangular ‘P-6’ logo, arguing that “the adoption of even more similar designs and logos cannot have occurred by accident”.

And the truth is that Patagonia is not wrong… Judge for yourselves:

And speaking of conflicts… Did you know that Banksy is suing GUESS?
