Supermodel Kate Upton has already been known for her enormous … accomplishments, but her most impressive undoubtedly took place in December 2012. Wearing nothing more than boots along with a bikini bottom, the 20-year-old Florida native posed to the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2013 Swimsuit Issue aboard the megayacht Le Boreal-in Antarctica. “It was freezing,” the astute Upton later said of posing with ice floes and emperor penguins. “I used to be working so desperately to maintain warm.”
What Upton neglected to mention was she possessed a little help. Covering her shoulders as well as other adjacent areas was canada goose jacka. The published photographs (which ran beneath the headline “Polar Bare”) were a memorable event males on many continents, however they were advertising gold for Canada Goose, that has suddenly get to be the hottest cold-weather coat worldwide. Not long ago, “Canada Goose was primarily a purely functional, technical brand,” observed retail consultancy J.C. Williams senior advisor Bruce Winder. “Somehow, they’ve become cool and prestigious.”

Winder, whose office is in Toronto, could be forgiven his mild surprise. In fact, Billig Canada Goose Jacka is definitely not new to Canadians. But the truth that the coat is quintessentially Canadian-made in Canada by people who understand a few things about freezing temperatures-helps explain its mythic status. At any given time when every apparel brand out there claims to be genuine and authentic, Canada Goose actually is.
This model of the second has actually been around since 1957, initially going from the name Metro Sportswear. For three decades, the corporation made coats for cops and park rangers, and also (quietly) for labels like L.L. Bean and Eddie Bauer. Only in 1993 did incoming CEO Dani Reiss make the pivotal decision to market Canada Goose coats under their very own name. Competition was stiff, but the brand possessed a key advantage: its reputation. “We’ve experienced this business a very long time, b1lliga everyone from Arctic bush pilots to industrial workers from the coldest places in the world,” Reiss said. “We don’t want to make up stories about our product.”
Which can be not to imply that Canada Goose outlet hasn’t done some very clever marketing. Its 2012 decision to sponsor the Sundance Film Festival put coats about the backs of 300 tastemakers, helping begin a celebrity cult following that’s grown to feature Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Sarah Silverman and Daniel Craig.
And, naturally, Kate Upton, who later joked that “the penguins kept me going” on that freezing photo shoot. Maybe so. But Canada Goose’s $595 Chilliwack Bomber jacket probably helped.
