Thing of Beauty
My first order from Cardinal, and what a pleaser! Beautiful coat made with the proven Loro Piana Storm System. Feels great, looks great - instant hit and, just judging by initial quality, something I ought to be able to keep for many years to come. This might be my runaway new clothing brand!
Excellent Product and Service
This was my first purchase from Cardinal of Canada. And it will not be my last. The Mackay raincoat crafted from Loro Piano Storm-System fabric is great all around. Perfect fit, beautiful cut and the look is exquisite. The price was excellent as well...
Coat of Many Things
Quality Italian cloth, fit, weather proof and stylish. Depending upon the thickness of your sweaters you may want to consider a size up. I picked the XL and it works for me as I do not wear thick sweaters. I have not yet tested the weather proofing but really enjoy the fit. Color is not a navy but more of a bight blue. Recommend it.
Made in China
The coat is great as expected. Had to shorten the sleeves as expected. Shipping was quick and safe as expected...but I also expected the coat to be made in Canada. The company prides itself and uses its Canadian heritage and Canadian craftmanship all over the website to sell its products, and it is deceiving not to indicate that its products are made in China. Not that there is anything wrong with "made in China", but it is wrong, even dishonest, not to be clear about it. It is a lie by omision, and I am disappointed.
Hi Bernard, Sorry to hear you are disappointed. It really isn't done intentionally. We have mentioned it on our Website under OUR STORY. As a matter of fact, we have a great advantage of producing in China. Unlike some of the other high-end brands, which also produce in China. We have 100% ownership & control of the Ningbo production facility, which makes our Brand unique with its unmatched quality to price ratio. We are a Canadian based company since 1938 and very proud of it. It's only the last 10 years that the production facility moved to Ningbo, China. Ningbo is known as the Saville Row of China, with 6 generations of master tailors. It had the craftsmanship skills required to continue the long-standing excellent Canadian heritage. The garments are sewn by machines and the shoulders and other details are hand sewn & closely inspected for quality and craftsmanship insurance. Thank you for pointing this out as there may be other customers that might have felt the same. Please feel free to reach out if you need further information. Thank you again for your business, we value your patronage. Best Regards, Carmela Amorosa Ecommerce & Marketing Manager Cardinal of Canada
High quality, sharp looking
The finish and quality of this is excellent. Somewhat formal looking, can be used semi casually or with a jacket. Have a trim fit and this fit well. Stands out as a well made, good looking coat.
