Parading around in Hudson Bay’s Team Canada apparel isn’t for every sports fan. For patriotic Canadians who’d rather make a subtler, more stylish contribution to the festivities, we recommend this rainbow maple-leaf sweatshirt from the Drake General Store’s private label, Shared. Unlike The Bay’s replica gear for consumers, this sweatshirt is entirely Toronto-made, and the pride rainbow isn’t just for show—10 per cent of proceeds go to Athlete Alley, a charity that supports LGBT athletes. Plus, the sweater’s vintage look and tiny “Canada 2014” lettering mean the cozy top won’t scream “Sochi” after the Games have wrapped up. $78.
