It’s the most wonderful time of the year, guys. When your fingers nearly fall off from frostbite while waiting for the streetcar on your way to work. When you boots get salt stains or–even worse–your brand new high heels get salt stains. The only true consolation in all of this is having a bomb ass parka that cost more than your rent, to keep you warm and ultra stylish while you freeze your bomb ass off.
That being said, sometimes it feels like we don’t have many brands to choose from when it comes to Canadian outerwear. Canada Goose is awesome, but it’s not the only awesome choice out there. And if you typically shy away from looking like the masses, you might be on hunt for that parka with the je ne sais quoi. Normally, that would entail shopping for outerwear hailing from Scandinavia, the United States, Italy and London. Well, not this year. This time around you can find unbelievably chic outerwear right here on Canadian, snow-covered soil.
