I own a lot of winter outerwear; some might even say it’s an obsession. But when December hits and there’s no longer any sense in shivering to death in my leather biker jacket or even my double-breasted wool top coat, there’s only one piece of outerwear in my closet for the job: my Canada Goose Trillium jacket. I’ve never sported anything warmer than my bright white Trillium, and I’d take it with me on a trip to the North Pole in a heart beat.
Considering a Goose too? The jackets sell out fast and never go on sale, but we just might be able to help you with that. Canada Goose products are now officially available through Sporting Life at SHOP.CA, where you can purchase online from a certified retailer with free shipping and returns.
Even better, we’re giving away a $250 SHOP.CA gift card to one lucky reader of The Backseat Stylers to celebrate! You know you want it for your upcoming holiday shopping list. Contest rules are below. Good luck!

With Toronto’s Rogue Fashion Week having come to a close with the Greta Constantine and Ezra Constantine show, it seemed almost symbolic (of what, I’ve yet to determine) that designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong’s lines then took part in Holt Renfrew‘s opening show for the official LG Fashion Week mere days later. Joined by top Canadian designers Denis Gagnon, Jeremy Laing, Lida Baday, Pink Tartan, Smythe, Todd Lynn, TWENTYCLUNY, Wings + Horns and, curiously, Canada Goose, to make up this season’s line-up, the cast of the Holt Renfrew Presents Fall 2011 edition looked almost identical to the Spring 2011 show but felt quite different. Gone were Mikhael Kale and Wayne Clark, replaced by Canadian-born, London-based designer Todd Lynn and TWENTYCLUNY by Sara Rabkin.

is having a ridiculously amazing Black Friday sale running from Nov 25-27, 2009. Enter code SSENSEBF at checkout and receive a 30% discount on products storewide – no exclusions! That means the Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle
is 30% off. Erin Wasson x RVCA
is 30% off. Even Canada Goose
jackets are 30% off. I’m going out of my mind trying to decide on a winter jacket to replace my TNA parka that mysteriously disappeared into thin air. And I’m desperately attempting to ignore the rest of the store, because there are too many fabulous brands and so little money. SSENSE has begun stocking so many amazing lines over the past year – Elizabeth and James, Helmut Lang, Rick Owens Lilies, McQ by Alexander McQueen and so many more – that I’m completely overwhelmed by the well-edited selection and the generous offer of 30% off storewide. Do note the return/exchange policy
though – all sales are final on items discounted 30% or more.
EDIT: It seems Canada Goose has been pulled from the sale, likely per manufacturer’s request. SSENSE is honouring CG orders made before the pull though, so I’m feeling rather lucky! This is why it pays to be up at 4am debating the merits of one parka over another with oneself.
