WORDS BY JOSEPH FURNESS
Whatever chic city you plan on spending your wintertime in – whether that be London, New York, Paris, Milan or beyond – you’re sure to be surrounded by packs of Canada Goose-wearing metropolitans. In recent years, chill-proof layers created by the 64-year-old outerwear label have been inextricable as consumers have become increasingly interested in functional fashions. The question is, will you join the Canada Goose movement? (Of course, that’s if you haven’t already.)
Where is Canada Goose Made?
Yes, your assumption is correct – Canada Goose is created in the country of Canada. To be specific, all of the brand’s offerings are manufactured in either Toronto – the city in which the brand was founded by Polish-Jewish immigrant Sam Tick in 1957 – or Winnipeg.
The Canada Goose Logo Badge
The Canada Goose logo badge is a status symbol – it informs passersby that you’re a member of the luxury outerwear brand’s clientele. The logo itself depicts the North Pole, reflecting Canada Goose’s mission to create outerwear to combat the conditions of the coldest climates on the planet.
Canada Goose Sustainability
Canada Goose’s sourcing standards prove that the brand does not condone any willful mistreatment of animals.
The natural down Canada Goose uses in its offerings is a by-product of the poultry industry and, according to a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), has an 18% lesser impact on climate change than polyester fill. By the end of 2021, Canada Goose intends to be 100% Responsible Down Standard certified, which will mean that the brand can confirm all animals involved have not been subjected to unnecessary harm.
Furthermore, Canada Goose has exclusively used non-mulesed wool ever since 2017. The label requires suppliers to confirm the wool used originates from farms that do not practise mulesing.
How do Canada Goose coats fit?
Canada Goose Relaxed Fit
Canada Goose’s array of relaxed fit coats are on the larger side as they’re created for layering. If you’re not looking to layer one of the brand’s relaxed fit coats, you may want to consider sizing down.
Canada Goose Slim Fit
Canada Goose’s selection of slim fit coats have an athletic cut designed to keep the wearer feeling simultaneously warm and flexible.
Canada Goose Regular Fit
Canada Goose’s range of regular fit coats are cool, classic and easy to layer – thus, they’re ideal for everyday wear.

A Canada Goose Armstrong coat is an infallible winter coat option: it’s lightweight yet super warm (it’s suitable for temperatures as low as -15C), made from 100% water-resistant nylon, reinforced with CORDURA® fabric and packable into the coat’s interior left pocket. Essentially, it’s an all-rounder, which, in our eyes, makes it a very sensible investment.

If you have a predilection for layers a little more low-key than Canada Goose’s ubiquitous offerings, keep in mind the brand’s Sanford hooded parka.
