The Lakewood: Design your own jacket with YNOT

Ever buy a jacket and think to yourself, “I wish the pockets were different?” Maybe you wish it had a hood, or that the lining was a different color. There are always small changes that would make the jacket more customized to you. Well YNOT has you covered!

Say hello to The Lakewood jacket from YNOT.

Launching on Kickstarter today, Candian brand YNOT now offers the Lakeview, their completely customizable jacket.

Made with the same care, creativity and Canadian manufacturing as all their products, YNOT is the ultimate choice in personalized outwear.

So what’s the actual deal with the Lakewood?

While designing your own jacket, you’ll start with the base: a choice between Charcoal, oak, or olive waxed canvas, multicam or plain black.

Next, you’ll choose; closure, liner, pockets, hood or no hood.

Customize it to your taste: it’s all about what you want!

Not only do you get to make the exact model you want, they also come with a load of great features. The Lakewood is water resistant, has an inner pocket, a hidden block plate on the back that allows more movement, and more!

I dropped by the shop on Queen West in Toronto to go through the process myself to make the exact coat that I wanted.

With a few easy choices and some guidance from the team, I ended up with Oak Waxed Canvas, featuring the blackwatch liner, zipper and a classic montane pocket.



The process, so easy. The result, well this might be one of my fav jackets of all time, and that’s saying a lot.

With the vast choices offered, the high quality of the product, and the fact it’s not only Canadian but manufactured in Canada. It’s really no surprise why I love this brand and I love this coat.


Now the only question that remains is, what will your Lakewood look like?
