north of america, hard to ignore: canada goose parkas

with 4 comments

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.

  1. Canada Goose has been around since 1957 not 1946.

    • If you follow the link at the bottom of the post that says “source” it will say 1946 in the article with which this post was based on.

      Perhaps is wrong. Sorry.
