Canada Goose, an upscale fashion brand known for its high-priced winter jackets, is reportedly considering taking legal action against South Korean apparel companies over allegedly copied products sold here.
“The head office of Canada Goose is reviewing the litigation,” said an official of Connexsolution, the local distributor for Canada Goose said. “It will take tough action against products that used the logo of the firm without permission.”
The Canadian company’s jackets are gaining popularity among South Korean students. However, since its coats are too expensive for many local customers, some Korean firms have rushed to produce similar jackets at a lower price to grab a share in the segment.
While a Canada Goose jacket can cost nearly $1,000, domestic brands are priced at less than $200.
