Promotional Success: Salmo Dinner Jackets Are Flying off the ShelfCivicInfo BC, with files from the Village of Salmo
SALMO – Paris. Milan. New York. Salmo. The common thread? Each place makes headlines in the fashion world.
In Salmo’s case the headlines are courtesy of the CBC, which recently ran a story featuring the “Salmo Dinner Jacket”, a red plaid lumberjack coat that also serves as official work gear for Village employees. In less than a week, the story has become a small viral sensation, shared via social media over 9,400 times.
The jackets, sold at municipal hall and featuring a small village logo on the front, have been a surprisingly effective way to promote the community. According to Chief Administrative Office Diane Kalen-Sukra they’re flying off the shelf.
The Salmo Dinner Jacket can even be found listed on UrbanDictionary.com, where the definition – a regionally-famous plaid lumberjack shirt / jacket – has earned 275 “thumbs up” since it was listed in 2010.
