There was much anticipation for the MASSIVE, DEBILITATING, CITY-STOPPING snow storm that hit southern Ontario yesterday. Julie and I rated this “storm” a 4 and our comments were left to, “meh”. Never trust the weather man/woman. To say the least, I was prepared in my Canada Goose Expedition parka, Cougar waterproof snow boots, cashmere toque and Ray-Ban wayfarers.
There are a number of people (stuck up Fashionistas) who love to hate on the Canada Goose parka which is understandable, as they now dominate the Toronto outerwear market with 1 out of 5 (SDP observation) people wearing them who pass by. It is easy to reject or vocally denounce the mainstream but, the point of the matter is that when it comes to Canada Goose, they are the warmest, most functional jackets you can buy. Canada Goose may not be run-way fashion but rather really, really warm – more of a forcefield to the sub zero temperatures that Canadian winters bring. Also, when you look at the inside tag it will read, ‘Made in Canada’. How many items in your wardrobe will read that nowadays? Canada Goose is an international success – and I love my Canada Goose parka.

In continuation with JD’s Cougar rain boot post, I had the pleasure of receiving these winter boots in the mail. When photographing the Cougar Boots on a brisk fall day, I had to admit I overheated almost immediately starting from my toes. These 100% waterproof puppies will keep you warm in temperatures of – 29 degrees Celsius. Taking note Montreal, Winnipeg and Calgary? Once proving to be functional throughout our cold winters, I was amazed by how good they look. With patent detail and lined with rabbit fur, I can trek these boots across the city and through ski resorts. CM
