    Nothing wrong with the principals going to the market to provide liquidity to their investment. Their timing & pricing seems have worked well for them.
    Which is to say that new investors may find the company challenged to maintain their recent growth.
    The parkas do seem to be catering to luxury/discretionary buyers.

    Funny how things go. I think back to the market that Woods (once a Canadian icon) used to sell their Arctic Oil King parkas and other outerwear into. I wonder if the goose are as warm as the oil king was? It was toasty, even under helicopter downwash on days we worked outside at -45deg c.

    In 2016, rapper Lil Uzi Vert released a mixtape featuring a song titled "Canadian Goose".

    Canada Goose even uses athletes to promote its products. During Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz's final trip to Toronto during the 2016 Major League Baseball season, Toronto Blue Jays players José Bautista and Edwin Encarnación each gave Ortiz a custom-made Canada Goose jacket, valued at US$1000. All three players are from the Dominican Republic.[22][23])

    it's true there's nothing wrong with the principals going to the market - for the principals.

    but for retail investors thinking to buy, when most of the shares being IPO'd are, in fact, 2nd hand shares being offed by the corporate founders & insiders, that's usually considered to be a red flag.

    often in such a case, a prospectus will recite that the proceeds of the IPO are to be used for general corporate development. No specific acquisition or new business initiative is mentioned.

    mercifully, regulators do require that the prospectuses divulge whether most of an IPO's shares are coming from the founders' stakes. Caveat emptor.

    Simply put, the valuation on this company is very high. I fail to see why you would pay a rich amount for a clothing company when the product can reasonably be copied by low cost competitors. I wouldn't rush in.
