An alternative to the ubiquitous Canada Goose parka (and it’s on sale this weekend)

When is comes to stylish and super warm coats for the past few winters, Canada Goose has had a monopoly. Until now. CMFR, another Canadian company that refuses to divulge the definition of their acronym, promises that their bombers are like “wearing the Bahamas on your back.” An exaggeration, sure, but who cares? The coats are ultra cozy and more stylish than lookalikes thanks to the red details and contrasting buttons. It also comes in black and grey, and the unisex style shown is on sale this weekend at Atelier 688 for $470 (30 per cent off the regular retail price of $670).

Atelier 688, 688 Richmond St. W., Ste. 201, 416-671-2537.
