Help me find a Canada hoodie...

... for an Xmas gift. I am sure it's anime or manga-related, since that's her world, but my niece asked for specifically a red hoodie with a white maple leaf for Xmas. I cannot find one anywhere.

I need online options only! As long as it gets here by Xmas, I can order from anywhere that will ship in time. It can also have the word "Canada" on it, but it needs to be red with white, no other color options. THANKS!!

Have you checked out The Bay? They have a whole line of stuff like this for the upcoming olympics.

There's also Roots, but I can't seem to find anything with a white maple leaf as the main logo...

I'd bet that Neighborhoodies can knock something like this out.

... and by hoodie, I need to clarify NOT a zip-up jacket, but a pull-on hoodie (otherwise thanks kmennie!)

Who knew it would be this hard?

I had since discovered that the manga in question is called Hetalia, so any Canada hoodies related to that scene are what she wants. Looks like I may have to go custom...

I'll check some stores locally this weekend and get back to you. I don't mind buying/mailing for you if I find something that works.

Yeah, you might have better luck if you drop the word hoodie from your google searches, because a hoodie is typically has a full-length zipper (as well as a hood, obviously). You want a hooded sweatshirt, I think. Possibly a kangaroo sweatshirt (with the large pocket in front)? Something like this or this, but with a Hetaila-inspired logo? (and in red, which these are not).

Go to Spreadshirt, pick a hoodie, choose the maple leaf from the provided designs, change it to white, and make the hoodie itself red. Cheap and simple.

This may be regional/national - to me, a hoodie is pullover, and if you want a zippered version, you specify "Zippered hoodie."

Regardless, Spreadshirt does seem to do the trick, so it's all good.

Thanks all- I have created/ordered the precise item from Spreadshirt and what's more, used their cool "create a shop" function to allow others to order this same design.
