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 durable and warm.
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 Canada Goose boys' and girls' jackets on Smallable. Close
