As someone from Toronto, I can confirm the Canada Goose situation here is well beyond trendy and it's just in pure overkill mode now. I agree it's best not to concern one's self with what other people are wearing and if other people have the same things, but when you see these jackets literally EVERYWHERE it just gets a bit much. Go to a mall and it feels like every third person is wearing one. The worst part is that is being worn more as a fashion piece now than as a winter jacket.....which is kind of sad since they really are fantastic jackets. Kids are wearing these in weather where you barely need a light Spring/Fall jacket. And they're now the jacket of choice for the Von Dutch/Ed Hardy crowd if you get what I mean.
If I lived somewhere where they weren't beyond saturated, I would buy one in a second, but living in Toronto I just couldn't anymore.
It's the same way here in Madison w/ TNF.
