    Is that ethnic Australian? Hell Toronto is pretty open so if that's your native costume go for it.

    Hey if you want to wear your hat wear it. Like I said Toronto is pretty open to ethnic dress.

    I think you have better looking options for head wear, but that's a matter of personal preference. Toronto doesn't get that cold IMHO, but I think you may disagree based on the climate you are coming from. Thinking back to when I was in school, I can recall a couple of Sudanese guys wearing parkas to class in May, while most of us found the heat insufferable.

    No you do not need one of these. If you want to wear it do it. You will find so much Canada Goose being worn in downtown Toronto that you will immediately fit in.

    You plan to rock one of them for style or for functional/practical purposes?

    I am looking for something stylish and practical at the same time.
    I am happy to hear other suggestion for headwear

    Wait til you get there. See what people are wearing and what you like.

    Go to a menswear store, the Bay, or even Mountain Equipment Co-Op.

    Get a few things that cover a range of options.

    You're coming to Toronto, not the Arctic tundra! :D
    A $20 wool toque from the the Bay will be more than adequate.

    I agree. I'm from central Canada and even in our winters that trapper hat is overkill, so for sure it's not needed in Toronto.

    Welcome to Styleforum swan. I would also recommend waiting until you arrive. This particular hat (Canada Goose) is of very good quality but is intended for prolonged exposure to extreme cold. Once you arrive in Toronto, you will notice (especially downtown) every other person wearing Canada Goose product. They'll even wear their CG parkas when the temperatures are too warm for it. It is half fasion trend and 100% Canadian pride to wear one, mostly because there is not much else left made in Canada anymore. Hoping you have a safe and pleasant journey to Toronto. Once you get settled in, we can certainly assist you further as there are many Torontonian members on SF.

    Wonder what percentage of the GTA Canada Goose flock is counterfeit (knowingly or unknowingly)?

    A good question. I would wager most people will purchase their CG's from reputable sources rather than risking an expensive embarassment but you are right that there are many counterfeits out there. There should be a dedicated thread to Canada Goose if there isn't one already.
