Sly & Co is a company specialized in men’s and women’s leather jackets. Its collections are inspired by classic models like the perfecto, the bomber jacket and the trench coat, updated to reflect the latest trends. These quality products are priced affordably, thanks to the company’s production facilities in China, India and Pakistan. In addition to its own collections, Sly & Co acts a subcontractor for brands like RW & Co., Tristan, and Moores, who then attach their labels to its coats.

Initially called Bedoya & Sly, the company was founded in 1980 by designer Sylvain Roy. The current name was adopted in 2006. In 2011, Sly & Co began producing parka-style winter coats under the Ookpik brand. These jackets are available at different price points, depending on the materials used: synthetic insulating materials, natural down, fur, etc.

As of 2018, the Sly & Co and Ookpik brands can be found in over 200 stores in Canada and the United States, while Ookpik is also sold in Japan and Korea. The company’s head office on Meunier Street in Montreal employs approximately fifty people.
