Our Pledge

We started Coat & Shelter as an avenue to connect people to the homelessness issue that is often overlooked. We wholeheartedly pledge that 100% of our profits will go towards helping the homeless through the long winter nights. 



Mimi represents a modern take on winter apparel. Inspired by the Moto jacket, Mimi can either be worn open to reveal its flattering theatrical lapels or zipped up to tackle Winter's elements. The asymmetrical YYZ craftsman quality zipper helps to define the look.

Mimi also features an oversized removable hood that allows the user to wear it in her desired style. Implementing the timeless appeal of colour blocking, the jacket features a navy body and charcoal coloured sleeves. We will be adding additional hood styles that you will be able to upgrade to upon hitting our kickstarter goal.  Its unstructured body enables the wearer to retain comfort and mobility while layering. 

Constructed from a distinctively high quality wool and cashmere blend, the value of this jacket is simply unmatched. 


Michael is our flagship mens overcoat. It is made from a luxurious high quality charcoal-grey cashmere wool blend. It also features a single breasted 4 button front, mid thigh length and a contemporary lapel width. 

While crafting Michael, we wanted to exemplify the concept of versatility. Its neutral hue allows the wearer to effortlessly pair the jacket, making it a timeless essential piece for any man's wardrobe. We were also aware of a man's need for comfort and accessibility. Thus, Michael was created with an unstructured shoulder and features six sizable pockets, two on the inside and four on the outside. 

Along with its quilted lining and cashmere blend composition, Michael will keep you well insulated during the harsh winters.
