The Prospect

Sarah Hirschfield / The Daily Princetonian

A ton of disposable income and no style

Canada Goose’s symbolism, not only of wealth and status but of wealth and status as requirements for acceptance to the larger Princeton social scene, feeds into both its popularity and its disrepute. The intensity to which wealth is ridiculed in these memes, memes often made and shared by Canada Goose owners themselves, also points to a layer of self awareness, or perhaps just hypocrisy.
