Canada Goose Behind The Scenes

Canada Goose | The Style Raconteur

Gear Patrol recently visited the factories of Canadian institution, Canada Goose. The outdoor imprint has dedicated itself to the craft of keeping people warm and protected since 1957. However, the brand truly defined itself for the modern era in 1972, when CEO Dani Reiss’ father David Reiss invented the down-filling machine which led to a new range of ultra-wear and now iconic jackets. Since then, the Toronto-based Canada Goose has forged ahead in maintaining a close and intimate relationship with both the product it creates and the people it protects. The brand has recently opened the doors to a new showroom, design studio and factory that enables the rapid iteration and design of new products. This close-knit approach will further build on the credibility and growth the iconic brand has had over the course of the last half century.

Nike ‘SweatSUIT’ by Clothsurgeon

clothsurgeon-customizes-sweatsuit-with-nike-tech-pack-1

Although not an official Nike collaboration, the customized SweatSUIT by Clothsurgeon is something that can easily sit at any Nike shelf. More as a personalized project, the brand took four standard grey Nike fleece sweatpants and reconstructed them into a suit jacket and pants set, dubbed the “SweatSUIT.” The single breasted suit jacket is fully lined and features working cuffs, as well as front dual bucket pockets from the fleece pant’s original pockets. The “SweatSUIT” pants feature a single pleat and is of cropped length, while maintaining the original pant’s elastic waistband. Synonymous with fine tailoring, The Clothsurgeon “SweatSUIT” is definitely a show of skill from the brand, the only downside being that this one-off isn’t for sale.

Its getting colder unless you live in the south and you are on to the 12th indian summer/ heatwave of the the year, I live in the North and its parky outside..so its time to search for that winter jacket because the one I bought early in August to be the first to have it I’m bored of!!! So over the next couple of weeks I try and post up what I think are the ebst of the Winter. Up first is the Canada Goose Expedition Parka. Originally developed for scientists working in research facilities at McMurdo station in Antarctica, the Expedition Parka is one of our most iconic, warmest and durable parkas. It features a highly functional collection of external pockets, perfect for easy gear storage (not that ‘gear’ I mean phone ect!) and hand warming. Everything feels heavy-duty and ‘proper’ with this jacket. Finished with flexible rib-knit cuffs which storm flap over front zipper to complete they closure to the cold.  Available here

The jacket then adorns a large “INTERNATIONAL Stussy TRIBE” motif on the rear, with more brand patchworks on the front chest area. Finishing touches include branded buttons, leather-covered pockets and a quilted interior. The jacket was one of the earliest unifying representations of Stussy’s global influence as select International Stussy Tribe members were gifted with jackets as a token to the movement.
