Let’s be honest: it used to be a rare occasion that people would say, “That’s from Canada? I HAVE to have it!”
But more and more, something spectacular pops out of our fair country that wins the hearts of Canadians and demands international style attention. Take, for example, the Canada Goose jacket, which is worn by nearly every Canadian when the temperature drops, and has been spotted on all kinds of people from all kinds of countries.
Or how about those super-duper comfy Lulu pants that everyone jogs in? Canadian-made, baby! These are the products that we see everywhere and can bond together in knowing that we've either owned or coveted one before. This list of Canadian must-owns will make you (and your closet) shine with Great White Northern pride.
