i stumbled across these jackets in a boutique.



they seem to have very similar traits to the overly popular canada goose, difference being not everyone you know has one. they quality was quite impressive in person, goose down, real fur, the material looked very authentic. they're a pretty new company i guess, based in toronto. anyone else heard of them?

oh yea, they were priced around $650, ~150 more than goose. choices for a warm, stylish, quality down jacket for canadian winters in the ~500-600 range seem so few

hey chinese, maybe look at the dunderdon line. it doesnt have the cg feel but they do offer good quality, well thought out designs for not a lot of money. its made in china though.

Agreed. There's a store around here called Sugarcube that stocks Dunderdon, and everything I've seen looks pretty nice. Some of it seems to be pretty workwear-ish, but not necessarily in a bad way.
