memes???

[link to imgur.com (secure)]

HM ’21, who doesn’t own a Canada Goose because of personal preference, felt that for some students (or their parents) buying a $1,000 coat is “just what you do.” Yet while Y's coat practically fell into her lap, M mentioned that other students seek out the coat for its clout.

“Some people buy these things and they don’t think about it. Other people buy them with the intention or the knowing about, the aura they give off. The aura of status and wealth,” M explained.

“When someone walks in wearing a Canada Goose jacket, there is definitely a ‘damn right, I’m wearing a Canada Goose jacket.’ But if your parents bought it, what are you showing off here? Like congrats, you were born in a wealthy household.” - Y

Y agreed that her parents should have done more research, and that for many people, purchasing Canada Goose is “almost careless” compared to other designer or status items. “Like with a sports car, where your intention is to go in and be like, ‘I look cool,’ that’s not the same with Canada Goose,” she said. If she could go back, she wouldn’t buy one.

Some of her personal regret has come from the meme backlash of recent years; as Canada Goose sales have soared, the winter clothing brand has also taken heat over social media.

Selective Facebook groups such as Princeton Memes for Preppy AF Teens and Elitist Memes for Every Ivy League Teen have become popular sites for Canada Goose ridicule. M authored a meme that garnered over 1400 likes in the Princeton meme page before another student reposted it to the Ivy League page. He said it was “light hearted humor.”

“My friend G was visiting here from Swarthmore, and it came up in conversation."

Though M intended his Canada Goose meme as a joke, his criticism of the coat is sincere. “People who are in the student body here at Princeton, who are on financial aid or whose parents just don’t have access to the same kind of wealth that other people have, it just creates a big sense of animosity,” he said of the ubiquitous label.

Memes allow students to subtly express their unease. “By joking about it, and by meme-ifying that conversation, I think it’s a way of making the criticism more productive, more lighthearted,” A said. “You don’t want to be the person that I’m being right now, like standing on a soap box, yelling at people.”

Y and her friend see Canada Goose criticism as an inside joke among privileged circles. “Quite frankly, I don’t think lower income students care if you own a Canada Goose or not,” she said. “I think it’s more middle and upper middle class. I’m middle to upper middle class, and I make fun of Canada Goose all the time. I obviously can’t speak for them, but I think they have better things to do.”

She also believes that lower income students don’t participate in Canada Goose discourse because the discourse itself excludes them; in essence, the meme itself is elitist, as the title of the Facebook page where it has risen to prominence, Elitist Memes for Every Ivy League Teen, indicates.

“I think this is an elitist meme, because the majority of people getting tagged on it are people of wealth, and the majority of people doing the tagging are other people of wealth,” she explained.

“It’s almost like the default is everyone is wealthy. And so kind of like whether or not you fit the stereotype of a Princeton student is pretty much still made by the in group,” Yang’s friend added. The two Canada Goose owners do not perceive themselves as victims of the joke; rather, they feel that they are the only ones in on it.


In response to Y's comment that low income students don’t care, A, who identifies himself as a low-income student, strongly disagreed. “I think it is very, very silly to pretend that the expression of this insane amount of wealth does not affect the student population,” he said in reaction to the claim that low- income students don’t care. “I think a lot of first-generation students or students from low income backgrounds feel like the Princeton social scene is inaccessible.”

According to The New York Times, more students come from the top one percent at Princeton than the bottom 60 percent.

However, he also argued that memes — and Canada Goose mockery in general — demonstrate students’ discomfort with the privilege they gain from attending an Ivy League school.

“As I tried to make clear in my opinion piece, it's shocking to see that my peers have lifestyles so vastly different from my own. It's also profoundly disconcerting to realize that this lifestyle may be my future. I think one of the reasons many Yalies are so quick to condemn their wealthy peers is that they, like me, are uncomfortable with the idea of benefiting from social and economic inequality.”

The last line of Roberts’ article reads, “We must master the disdain we feel upon seeing someone in a Canada Goose jacket, for, if we lift up the fur-lined hood, we will find ourselves.”


Ahlers noted the same phenomenon, comparing it to how both Democrats and Republicans love Stephen Colbert. “Both sides think he’s making fun of the other side.”

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. Studies show that people believe owning status symbols will help them make friends but look down upon them when it comes to selecting friends for themselves.

So who is to blame for the Canada Goose phenomenon? Parents? Students who choose to buy these jackets, or receive them as gifts? Meme creators? Wealth inequality? Canada Goose itself? Should we just stop talking about it and hope it goes away?



But maybe what students are so fixated on extends beyond the Canada Goose conversation. The clothes we choose to wear, the places we choose to eat: these messages define us, and stratify Princeton. In turn, they promise us protection from social isolation, and the elusive warmth and comfort of fitting in, a promise that comes at a price far higher than $1,000, a price of setting ourselves apart from others. Though the memes might demonstrate that Princeton students are becoming aware of this problem, no one seems prepared to solve it — yet.
