The two iconic brands have come together to produce a unique down-filled blazer and merino wool scarf, combining expert tailoring with pioneering design

Canada Goose and Henry Poole have partnered to release a luxury line of comfortable, lightweight clothing made with the active traveller in mind. While a technical outerwear brand may seem an unexpected choice of partner for a Savile Row tailor, the partnership has proven successful due to the shared values of commitment to authenticity and producing best-in-class luxury clothing.

“I like to surprise people with such collaborations, but it has to be about collaborating with the right people” says Simon Cundey, managing director of Henry Poole. “It has to make sense, there needs to be passion, and it has to be fun.”

Named after the central London location of the partnering brands, the W1 blazer is produced in three colours - graphite, navy, and red  and available for both men and women. Crafted by Canada Goose specialists in the brand's native Canada, it is the perfect piece for those with a love of the outdoors.

Complementing the form is a functional design that will provide warmth and comfort in temperatures as low as -5 degrees Celsius. It corresponds to the TEI 1 Thermal Experience Index rating, which demonstrates its ability to provide lightweight protection from the cold. The blazer also features the iconic Canada Goose disk logo and a row of stylish Henry Poole house buttons.

On the accessories side is a dark green Selvedge scarf is made with 100% super-fine merino wool, complete with a light herringbone finish and a border of wordmark logos. Combined with the down-filled blazer, the scarf forms a stylish yet practical outfit for even the chilliest of days this winter, whether you plan to take on the wilds of the local countryside or simply take a stroll through the capital. 

The Canada Goose x Henry Poole collaboration will be available in select cities starting on the 18th of January, including London, Tokyo, New York, Seoul, and Hong Kong.
