north of america, hard to ignore: canada goose parkas
Not since Chesley Sullenberger’s heroic landing of flight 1549 have Canada geese been such a hot topic. The puffy parkas with the familiar arm patch are a popular winter choice for Torontonians. Canada Goose has been manufacturing their jackets in Toronto since 1946 and uses their own special blend of down. The jackets start at $350 and move up from there, which is a small price to pay for warmth and dryness during the blistering cold of winter.
Last year when I was at the Design Exchange, Canada Goose was featured in an exhibit recognizing the company for “good” design. So, if you find yourself in a parka dilemma, just remember that Canada Goose had their jackets praised by a museum. That justifies the higher price point, right?
Oh and look, a video.
