Canada Goose Holdings Inc. is a Canadian group of winter wear manufacturers. The company was founded in 1957 by Sam Tick, with the name of Metro Sportswear Ltd. Canada Goose sells a wide range of jackets, parkas, jackets, hats, gloves and other clothing distributed over multiple channels, both wholesale than directly to the customer with the retail stores.
From a small warehouse in Toronto, the brand's products are now on the streets around the world with over 100 models and many color combinations. The brand is a leader in the fields of scientific research, extreme sports and high altitude hikers, as well as among movie sets. This is also thanks to the precious technical materials and the four different feather blends among the most precious in the world, which require 13 production phases (all Made in Canada).
The success is mainly due to the famous parkas and their insulating capacity made of different plumage. They are called the "hottest jackets on earth": for example the model "Snow Mantra" (with a weight of about 3. 5 kg) of 1980, tested by scientists at Mc Murdo Station in Antarctica, with temperatures down to -70 °. In the film field, the first appearances date back to 2004 on the set of The Day After Tomorrow and then for X-Men II, Fargo, Games of Thrones and many others.
First the performance and functionality, then the aesthetics. But with coherence and savoir-faire of a family business, the brand has gained the approval of even the most trendsetters, conquering the catwalks of London, New York, Milan, Paris and even Tokyo. Their first flagship store opened in London at Trafalgar Square, which later became the brand's historical core and building. In 2019, the Holding planned to open six new stores in Europe, Canada and the United States: each store will have a cold room where it will be possible to test the products in the environmental conditions for which they were designed. The first Italian store will land in September in Via Della Spiga in Milan.
