With extreme cold temperatures overwhelming even the toughest people in the province, many in Saskatchewan are looking to upgrade to a better winter jacket this month.

One of the most popular and warm choices is the Canada Goose parka. The company’s jackets are top quality, made with genuine goose down and trimmed with coyote fur.

James Briens, co-owner of Eb’s Source for Adventure in Saskatoon, said the demand is very strong even with a retail price of approximately $800-900.

“Currently, if a store doesn’t have it, we are taking orders for next year,” Briens said. “People are giving us the colours and styles and we are adding it to our order, which has already been placed for next season.”Briens said he expects current orders to arrive in about May.

However, cheap knockoffs are becoming far more common, costing the company money and confusing some customers. Briens said he’s already encountered counterfeit Canada Goose jackets this winter.canada goose jackets on sale.

“We’re actually assisting a customer right now , hoping for them to get that resolved with their credit card company,” Briens said.
Finding a fake

Briens said it’s important for consumers to check a few things when buying a Canada Goose jacket. He said the first place to start is the fur on the hood.Canada Goose”With a fake, you’ll notice that the fur isn’t as full. It looks almost mangy,” Briens said. “Its not as full.”The Canada Goose jacket also features their signature badge.

“(The counterfeit) badge looks like it’s bleeding around the outside,” he said. “It’s not as distinctive on the flags itself and even just the outline of the island.”

Briens said there are also a number of things to look for when trying to determine a fake from the real thing. Counterfeit jackets will be a lot thinner, the colours aren’t as rich, and stitching isn’t as detailed.

The most important indicator, Briens said, is a hologram tag the company implemented a couple of years ago.

“The tags make the parka look identical, but it’s the hologram that will tell you you have an authentic Canada Goose,” he said. “If you don’t have this hologram, then unfortunately you have a counterfeit.”

While people can still wear a counterfeit jacket, Briens said providing enough warmth is one major issue. He said there are also some potential health concerns.

“The problem with the fake (jackets) is you’re not really sure what kind of feathers are inside,” he said. “It’s been known that the fill that has come from overseas is very, very poor quality. So the sanitation of the down is very poor. You don’t know what is mixed into it.”canada goose winter jacket sale.

Canada Goose does not sell direct to customers. So for people buying online, Briens suggests they put the online store’s name into the Canada Goose website to authenticate whether it is an online retailer.

The craze picked up steam when Kate Upton went “polar bare” on the cover of the 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, ditching her bikini top for a white Canada Goose bomber jacket, worn open over string-bikini bottoms. Her glam squad also sported Canada Goose parkas during the six-day shoot in Antarctica — but the lucky team was permitted clothes.

Now the jackets are roosting on every street corner.Modal Trigger Actor Ansel Elgort sports a Canada Goose coat as he passes through New York en route to Sundance.“We’re the Land Rover of clothing,” says Reiss. “We’re built to be used in the harshest climates, but we’ve also transcended into the fashion world.”
Canada Goose is part of the booming “premium-down” category, along with its main competitor, Moncler, and a handful of outdoor brands like the North Face and Patagonia.

“The trend of these parkas continues to gain in momentum,” says Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue. “Canada Goose is an important brand for us. It’s quality, it’s an investment piece, and it’s practical.”discount canada goose jackets womens.Bob Gilman, COO of Paragon Sports, the company’s primary dealer in New York, added that Canada Goose is a “great seller.”But the label is so ubiquitous that many trendsetters feel the Goose — as with Uggs, another former winter “must-have” — is finally cooked.
This fatigue was felt particularly keenly this week at Sundance, where Canada Goose is among the sponsors of the indie-film extravaganza/freebie fest for the third year running. The company has even set up a gifting suite where $550 limited-edition black “Hybridge Lite Hoody” jackets are being handed out for free to directors.

“I feel like a bit of a d - - khead,” admits director Matthew Bate of being part of such a raging trend after scooping up a free Goose at the suite. “But it’s warmer than my other jackets.”

“I would wear a Goose, but they’re definitely over,” adds 33-year-old entertainment personality Ben Lyons, who was hanging out on Sunday at Sundance’s Stella Artois Cafe. “You see them everywhere.”canada goose kensington parka online.
