It's a shame, because I liked the idea of supporting Canadian business.
Does anyone have experience with Kanuk? (Not sure if I asked this already as I don't recall receiving any kind of input.) I was out with my brother helping him exchange Christmas gifts and happened to drive by a local retailer. It's piqued an interest in me. Kind of a more mature alternative without the flattering cuts of the fashion-foward brands, but they appear to be well insulated without any ghastly branding.
From a SF 'Kanuk' search...
"Quebecois are very fond of the home grown coat company called Kanuk. They are very warm and IMHO overpriced. They are manufactured right in the Plateau and have sales a couple times a year"
Took a quick look at their website. Having people who look like high school principle's model your coats is an interesting choice. Also those photos look like something someone would post on Flickr or Facebook, not to model clothing. Also confused if the coats come with fur or you can add it if it doesn't? Hopefully some already do. Lastly, can't say I see a model I like but maybe you can narrow it down. If you are going to spend that much you might as well try the Gormley.
