A British high school has banned Canada Goose, Moncler and other expensive luxury coats to stop students bullying other kids from lower-income backgrounds.

After a bunch of incidents, involving students bullying other students from lower-income households, Woodchurch High School in Birkenhead, England banned children from wearing the coats.

Canada Goose sells a wide range of coats but some of their products can go for several hundred dollars, with some items even costing upwards of $1,000.

Reducing children’s anxiety from failing to keep up with latest fashion of their wealthier peers was one of the reasons given for the decision, adding that the ban is in line with other measures the school has taken. Two years ago, the school implemented a compulsory school bag after parents complained that their children sought expensive, brand name backpacks.

It seems every generation has it's must have item. What was the must have clothing item back when you were in school?
