Brand Blast: Canada Goose
I've been really busy lately and haven't had much time to scour the interwebs for stuff to share, but I thought I'd finally get around to doing something really important: posting stuff my readers actually asked me to post.
First up, we have the ubiquitous Canada Goose coat - a brand that multiple people have asked me to blast (ok not exactly in those words, but whatever). This brand markets themselves perfectly, combining style with functionality, and the best part is that they have no problem admitting it.
"We have been manufacturing innovative, high quality outerwear in Canada for over 50 years...People wear our brand because of our reputation for quality, functionality and style," reads their website.
At school, on the bus, downtown, uptown, wherever, these jackets line the streets and are easily recognizable. The two main features are (on most models) a furry hood and the symbolic patch found somewhere on the garment, certifying not only authenticity, but for those who actually live in real cold, sorry Toronto, protection and safety as well.
These jackets are here to stay. The only downside is the price as the pieces typically hover around the $600 price range. Obviously that is a lot of money to throw around, but from the responses I've received, it seems that the warmth and comfort these bad boys provide, it's all worth it.
The Expedition Parka
The Fleet Bomber (My personal favourite)
The Yorkville Parka
P.s. If there is anything you are looking to share with the world, and would like me to post, leave a comment somewhere or hit me on Facebook or Twitter or however else you can find me.
