A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Sears was selling the leases on 5 of their biggest retail locations. It looks as if things are going really badly for the department store and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be looking up anytime soon. Late last week, it was reported that popular jacket maker, Canada Goose, launched a trademark infringement lawsuit against Sears, accusing them of selling knock-off Canada Goose “Kensington” parkas.

“(Sears) is intentionally seeking to mislead consumers and potential consumers into believing that they are purchasing a ‘lower-end’ Canada Goose jacket that is intended for sale at Sears,” Canada Goose writes in its statement of claim. “Canada Goose is aware of at least one instance of actual confusion, where a consumer saw the Sears jacket and believed it to be a Canada Goose jacket, or a ‘misleading knock-off’ and subsequently complained to Canada Goose.”

The jacket company is asking the Federal Court to order Sears to stop selling their Alpinetek® Women’s long down-filled jacket, which retails at $199.97 and is pictured above. The jackets look pretty similar to us! The Sears jacket even has a circular logo on the sleeve.

What do you think about this lawsuit? Does Canada Goose have the right to be pissed?

    Canada Goose is just another money sucking peace of garbage

  • andrew

    aawwww shut the fuck up Canada Goose, just because you are over price so now you have to sue other for some money

  • sure

    Canada Goose has the right to be pissed in this case. Look at the design of the jacket from Sears. This is a copy product for sure. Sue them for design infringement. People have no idea of how much work was put into making something original. Although I do agree Canada Goose products are bit overpriced, it is absolutely wrong to copy their design Sears!! What were you really thinking?

    ben chode, Your comments show your lack of class. Good job.

    Good for Canada Goose! Their products are made right here in Canada and are of very high quality. It is unconscionable that Sears would stoop to selling a cheap knockoff (probably not made in Canada) and in the process put Canadian workers in the unemployment line. This is exactly why I stopped shopping at Sears.

  • alex

    This is amazing free publicity for sears. The fact Canada Goose thinks its that good of a knock off to sue them, they must be doing something right. How many people do you think ran out to sears and got one cause they don’t want to pay 700 bucks?

  • zoey

    Did you know that Canada Goose is not even made in Canada anymore???? Charging the same prices?

  • Led

    Canada Goose is high quality?

    Sure i admit their materials are of the highest but wear a CG coat in certain conditions and it will break down. I am of course referring to the non water proof nature of most of their coats. Over time the down will be less effective.

    a CG coat does have a distinct style and the difference between the real and knock off to me is like night and day. I was recently at Sears and noticed some mothers and fathers looking at these jackets for their children. I would be embarrassed to wear one of these. however there’s no problem with them. they are probably a warm jacket for short durations of being out in the cold similarly with a CG.

    it’s not new that CG is being imitated however i think it’s in their best interest to protect their more distinct look. at the same time i would look forward for CG to introduce new coats which are more modern.

  • John

    YEs they are. Their gloves and mitts however are not. You must be confused because Canada Goose recently sold to
    U.S. private-equity firm Bain

  • mvanpee

    The design of the CG coat is so ludicrously basic, it would be impossible for anyone not to copy it. The pockets, zipper, and fit are all completely different.

  • mvanpee

    Original? I could design a coat by accident like this. The design is not original, it is ludicrously basic.

  • mvanpee

    What the hell is wrong with you?

  • Doran Walker

    No they moved their stores to China, John,

  • Wing Chitang

  • ronnnyraygun1

    People should be going out of their way to make sure their jackets DOESN’T look like Canada Goose. I’d be embarrassed of people thinking I’m dumb enough to pay for an overpriced jacket.
