OUR HISTORY

Sly & Co's core collection includes elegant jackets with a smooth and matte finishes. Focusing on enduring style, designs are crafted in a timeless palette of colors and the signature black leather. Each piece is carefully constructed with a unique creative vision and style in mind.

A CREATIVE FOUNDER DRIVEN BY 38 YEARS OF PASSION

The Sly & Co group was founded in 2006 by Sylvain Roy and Louise Leclerc. Emblematic figure of Montréal, Sylvain is recognized for the innovation, design and  quality of his products. He has been in the leather business for more than 35 years and has known a dazzling success from his early beginnings.

Sylvain has been working with leather and fur coats for years by creating two distinct brands, one specializing in the production of leather coats and jackets and the other in the creation of fur-trimmed down coats. His focus on high quality fabrics, refined construction, and versatile design makes Sly & Co an essential brand for fashionable leather pieces.

Prestigious clients accumulate, and large groups have complete trust in him (Aldo, Simons, Ogilvy, etc.). With the two deployed brands (Ookpik and Sly & Co), the group is firmly rooted. Based in its Montréal 22,000 ft2 head office, the company has no less than 450 outlets in Canada, the United States, Europe and Korea.

SLY & CO

For 35 years, the Sly & Co brand has been offering collections of men and women’s jackets. From the perfecto to iconic pieces such as the bomber jacket, Sly & Co revisits the basics with leather of exceptional quality. We stand by our trustworthy and authentic expertise.

OOKPIK

After years of success in leather Sylvain decided to launch Ookpik (that stands for snowy owl in Inuktitut, emblem of Quebec), that offers down coats and parkas at a crossroads between great outdoors and urban fashion.

The brand draws on its Canadian heritage to unleash the very essence of the Inuit parka, absolute warmth.

Meaning snowy owl in Inuktitut, Ookpik reinterprets the northern parka codes by drawing on the elegance and curve minimalism of the snowy owl. Ookpik creates a link between trend and technicality, with coats and jackets for all seasons, thought out and designed in Montréal.
