It's the perfect mix of not being too punk rock, and not being too dad-core.
Danier was not that quality Roots isn't the top-tier of quality, but you won't be replacing it every few years either. Are they still made in Canada? Checked the tags, and both were made in China. It makes me think that they're riding on the coattails of the old Roots, and outsource to China. Their leather goods are still made in Canada. The rest of their stuff is not, and I agree it's not cheap. The quality does seem better than average though and I think their prices are fair. I bought some gloves for example and they held up great.
This is good info. I normally walk right by Roots without even giving it a glance. Will check it out at next opportunity. Not exactly sure what the pricing is like, but the only other place in Canada I think of when someone says leather. I've bought 3 quality real leather jackets at Value Village for under dollars. They're rare because they usually go fast, but if you get in the habit of going every week or so, you'll find awesome deals.
I got my sheep skin bomber jacket there ages ago, and I love it. But it looks like it'd be a bit of a trek to get to from where you're at. You might consider taking a look at motorcycle jackets if there is a motorcycle gear shop near you. It's a requirement to have very thick quality leather. I bought one from Rubber Side Down similar to this and I'm very happy with it, naturally I wear it riding. I'm thinking more along the lines of a coat to wear over a suit. But I appreciate a good piece of leather hide for protection.
Some of my older coats end up in my field gear bin to live a second life protecting me from the wonders of the forest. They take a beating, but outlast any of the crappy shells everyone else is wearing. It's amazing how well they take a tree branch.
It's a bit of a trek, but I get my leather items jackets included from Hide House in Acton. The quality is amazing. I've got a messenger bag from them that I've had for almost 20 years, and a coat that's about 10 years old now.
Ironically, since I live in Yellowknife, this is a very viable option for almost everything in my life. Unfortunately, I like to try jackets on first, so when I head south someplace civilized, I try to swing by a mall.
Usually that would mean visiting Danier, but not anymore. I stopped in at Egli's today. They have some very nice products. Alright, they were all great. Ah, perfect - one in Vancouver - I'll pop in on them when I'm there later this month.
