Toronto Blue Jays star, Jose Bautista has collaborated with Canadian company, Canada Goose, to create a one-of-a-kind jacket.
The lightweight performance jacket is specially designed with Bautista's active lifestyle in mind. After all, he probably needs to be able to do a bat flip in it.
At the launch event at Harry Rosen in Toronto Jose said “The level of weight and protection, it provides versatility, which was the main thing on my mind during the design process." What makes the piece so versatile? Well the jacket is described as 'modern style and functionality that’s built to travel.' Literally it's built to travel because it folds into its own travel pillow!
About working with the iconic Canadian brand the outfielder said, “It’s obviously a great, humbling opportunity for me, something that I’m very proud of. That an iconic Canadian brand that’s this successful in the luxury space is willing to work with me, let alone have a collaboration jacket. It’s something that I’m definitely excited about.”
For fans this is something to definitely get excited about too. For the special edition collaboration, Canada Gosse is only making 190 versions of the jacket, to pay homage to Bautista's jersey number 19. And to add a personal flair to each jacket, it comes with a custom label numbered 1-190. The $995 jacket goes on sale today at Harry Rosen on Bloor Street in Toronto or online at Canadagoose.com
