Well increasing the price this year, but changing the manufacturer location to China. Doesn't really add up.

Now that you mention it. Theres an increase of sellers who are selling Nobis for like 500-550. Just look up nobis on kijiji.

Perhaps it could be because they found a way to directly purchase it from China manufacturers? instead of off a canadian manufacturer.

I heard a member on rfd, ghostfacechilla sells Nobis, perhaps he could clarify whether the ones he sells are made in Canada.

Yeah, NOBIS isn't bad at all. I like the Audrina jacket, but I ended up getting the CG Loro Piana.

Any updates on where it's made? China or Canada. Also, where is the cheapest place to buy Nobis coats?

I quote from their facebook

Hey ! We are a completely different company than "you know who" haha :) . We currently have a blended production which means some of our jackets are manufactured in Canada and some in Asia. Many people have a misconception when they hear 'Asian Production" but let me assure you that since we are manufacturing in Asia this allows are jackets to be more technically sound than any other outerwear company out there! The factory we make our jackets at is top notch! :)

they were referring to you know who from Canada Goose btw.

I'm also selling a small grey nobis cartel bnwt, if anyones interested

how is producing in Asian "more technically sound"??

and why are those jackets almost worth twice as much as "you know who" jacket? Sure you can argue that material is better, but is it 400 dollars better?

If I'm paying 400+ I prefer the jacket to be made in Canada. Yes being made in asia is not always bad thing, but just piece of mind for myself.

Heads up if you are looking to get a Nobis, luello.com has 15% off for Thanksgiving (23-24). Free shipping as well. Also, if you live outside of Quebec, you only pay 5% tax. Only negative point is that the prices are in USD, but I'm still jumping on the Kato! :razz:

"I've been repeated told by different salespeople that these jackets are the next big thing. "

LOL!
