Canada Goose at Fat Buddha Store
The ultimate cold weather jacket company Canada Goose are the latest addition to our ever growing brand list at Fat Buddha Store, and one we're very happy to have in stock. Founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada, over fifty years ago, Canada Goose has since grown to be recognized internationally as one of the world's leading manufacturers of extreme weather outerwear. In 1957, Polish immigrant Sam Tick founded Metro Sportswear Ltd. after spending years working as a cutter in other factories. Metro manufactured woolen vests, raincoats, snowmobile suits and other functional outerwear before creating down-filled jackets in the early 1970s. In 1972, Tick's son-in-law, David Reiss, joined the company and eventually became CEO. Metro Sportswear evolved creating superior down-filled garments and became a leading private label down manufacturer. Metro mainly focused on manufacturing custom-ordered down-filled coats and heavy-duty parkas for the Canadian Rangers, city police departments, the Ontario Provincial Police, municipal workers, the Ministry of Environment, and the Ministry of Correctional Services.
In 1985, the down-filled parkas it had been producing were officially registered under the name Snow Goose. In the early 1990s, Metro began selling its products in Europe, where the Snow Goose name was already registered. Metro registered its European products under the name Canada Goose.
