Bundle Up for Winter Storms in This Chic “Goose”
Puffer jackets have always floated outside the realm of fashion. While it’s hard to find a better substitute for extreme warmth, most designers would be hard-pressed to produce a hardy puffer for the runway. But on those particularly frigid days during those bleak winter months, what’s more reliable than a cozy puffer?
We agree, it’s quite the dilemma. But don’t despair! You don’t have to sacrifice style and status for warmth this year, you just need to bring home the “goose”.
A beacon of winter fashion, Canada Goose is dominating the outerwear scene on the streets of New York and Paris. Want to find out the evolution of this bird’s claim to fame? Read on for its family history.
WHO IS CANADA GOOSE?
In 1957, Polish immigrant Sam Tick founded Canada Goose. At first, he focused on sportswear, wool vests, raincoats, and snowmobile suits.
After his son-in-law David Reiss took over the company, the parkas were trademarked as “Snow Goose”, which later became the popular “Canada Goose”.
Its heavy-duty parkas were originally designed for outdoor adventurers and arctic explorers. Whether you’re mountain-climbing or setting off for a dangerous expedition in the ice fields, few things warm you up like densely packed goose down!
Canada Goose strives to maintain its central ethos of “Made in Canada”. Handmade locally, every puffer, parka, and other “Goose” pride of perfection must go through strict quality control before hitting the market.
Its unbeatable comfort and function made Canada Goose a favorite among researchers, photographers and sportsmen venturing into the coldest and most remote regions of the globe.
Street Style Star – The “Goose”
Walking down the wintery streets, the number one goal is to protect yourself against the elements. Canada Goose may be designed for the great outdoors, but its parkas have become staples of a city wardrobe. Many celebrities chose to don the goose, because: 1) it adds dimension and volume; 2) it can be styled in a myriad of ways; and 3) most importantly, it is so, very functional. Nothing says “I’m effortlessly cool” better than a goose down parka.
