Canadian Olympic Team Unisex Dual-Sided Scarf



The February and March issues of my gift subscription to Elle Canada (thanks cwangdom!) arrived in my mail last week with a very timely full-page spread about the Canadian Olympic Team apparel designed by HBC. Now, the red torch-bearer mittens have been getting a lot of press for being best-sellers and I've always admired the Cowichan-inspired Canada sweater, but while reading the Elle Canada feature, the item that captured my complete attention was this unisex dual-sided scarf ($20). Handpicked by one of the design team members as a favourite item, one side features a red plaid pattern while the other side has "CANADA" on it in bold red letters. The rationale behind this design: It'll keep you warm and also serve as a makeshift cheering banner for spectators when you flip it to the other side. Clever eh? It'll have you showing your patriotism faster than you can say "O Canada."

  7. This scarf is so hot, I even bought it for a xmas gift for a friend. The red plaid pattern is what I think makes this scarf fun.
