After lots of consideration, I have decided that I am going to get a Canada Goose Chilliwack jacket for the upcoming Chicago winter. However, I still have two questions, one about color and one about making a slight modification.
1. The color question: I am torn between navy blue and graphite grey. The navy is a dark navy and the graphite is a dark grey. I want a color that I can wear with everything. Brown shoes, black shoes, black slacks, grey slacks, brown slacks, and blue jeans as well. I feel like both graphite and navy will accomplish this, but I am just wondering, will one of them do it better? I'm going to be spending a decent chunk of cash on this coat, and I want to make sure that I get a color that is versatile and that I will be happy with. I am leaning towards navy, but I am mainly concerned about whether or not a navy jacket will look good with jeans.
2. The modification question: Do you think I can remove the Canada Goose patch from the arm? Here is a link that shows a good example of the Canada Goose patch that I might want to remove. I think it is just stitched over the fabric, so I imagine it would not be too much of an issue. I am not buying the jacket to show off my Canada Goose. I want the jacket because I like the fit, the performance, and the functionality. I actually think the patch is pretty obnoxious, because it has become associated with $600 winter jackets. Would it be weird to remove the patch so the coat is a tad bit less noticeable?
I have visited styleforum many times in the past, but this is my first time posting. I thank you in advance for your advice!
