The brand Canada Goose was founded in Canada in 1957 where all of its products are still manufactured. Who better than a Canadian to judge the quality of a good parka? The Canada Goose products are made for Canadians by Canadians. This is why Canada Goose has chosen the most insulating down filling and employs a hand-crafted production method. Canada Goose certainly deserves its reputation of being one of the warmest outdoor clothing makers. Canada Goose baby and kids clothes not only provide excellent protection against cold temperatures, but are also very innovative. For example the ‘Gosling Graduate’ style allows you to extend its sleeves and trouser legs so that it grows with your child and becomes an irreplaceable item of winter kidswear for the little ones and older children.
The Canada Goose Story
A family affair
A real family success story, Canada Goose was the brainchild of Sam Tick, who came up with the idea for the brand in a Toronto warehouse in the late 1950s. Known originally as Metro Sportswear Ltd., the label mainly produced woollen outerwear and raincoats for outdoor workers. A far cry from luxury fashion, Metro Sportswear Ltd. designed practical clothing that was warm and hardwearing.
From Metro Sportswear Ltd. to Canada Goose
Sam Tick's son-in-law, David Reiss soon convinced him to rename Metro Sportswear Ltd. to Canada Goose, which has since become a Canadian icon. Little by little, goose down replaced wool and the label’s warm garments set the standard in the fields of sport and science. In 1982, Canada Goose was selected to equip scientists on polar expeditions and mountaineers such as Laurie Skreslet, the first Canadian to summit Mount Everest, who immortalised the brand by wearing one of their parkas. With down jackets, parkas and clothing designed to protect from the cold, Canada Goose became an ally to all adventurers, both amateur and professional, and they even went on to dress famous musher, Lance Mackey for one of his expeditions.
Designed to withstand the lowest of temperatures, Canada Goose products are not only perfect for enduring the bitterness of the mountain, but also for winters in the city! Discover our selection on Smallable.
