Canada Goose has launched a lawsuit against Sears, accusing the department store of selling knock-offs of its “highly distinctive” parkas.

The jacket maker has filed a trademark infringement lawsuit in Federal Court.

The company is asking the court to order Sears to stop selling the coats that it alleges are designed to “mislead” consumers into thinking they’re buying a “lower-end” Canada Goose jacket.

Canada Goose says the jacket Sears is selling resembles its “Kensington” coat, a red three-quarter length coat with a fur-trimmed hood.

A spokesman for Sears says the company considers the lawsuit to be “frivolous” and “without merit.”

Vincent Power says there is no confusion between the two brands “whatsoever” and Canada Goose can’t claim it invented a logo in a circle.
