The Black Collection - Keychains

Courage For Gord Gift Shop

During the Tragically Hip Man Machine Poem tour in 2016, Gord Downie teamed up with Canadian fashion designer Izzy Camilleri to create a wardrobe of custom metallic leather suits worthy of Gord's energetic and passionate performance. Each suit was affectionately named after someone who had been instrumental in helping Gord prepare for the tour.

  • Gold Suit "Paul" - named after Paul Langlois
  • Silver Suit "Patrick" - named after his brother
  • Turquoise Suit "Edgar" - dedicated to his late father
  • Purple Suit "Prince" - dedicated to the musical legend
  • Acid Green Suit "Jenn" - named after Gord's assistant
  • Mirror Ball Suit "Bowie" - dedicated to David Bowie
  • Hot Pink Suit "Isabel" - named after Izzy Camilleri

Due to the overwhelming response from fans during the release of these keychains in December 2016, Izzy has created a new set of keychains to continue our fundraising efforts. This time, she used black saddle leather and embossed #courageforgord in the guitar shaped keychain. Izzy also used the limited leftover iconic leather from the initial campaign and attached it to the ring.

When Gord left Toronto for Victoria, BC for the first show of the historic Man Machine Poem tour, Izzy promised him that she would be with him in spirit at every show and all moments in between. The day Gord left, Izzy tied remnants of his metallic leather to the keychains she uses on a daily basis. It was a constant reminder to her to channel that spirit across the country in support of Gord and the tour. These new keychains represent that same spirit.  

Although not included in the pictures, the keychains will also be signed, numbered and include the names of Gord's suits. There are only a limited number of keychains with these metallic leather tags so be sure to order today!

Courage For Gord Foundation is honoured to be collaborating with Izzy Camilleri on this unique project and we're thrilled to be offering such an iconic piece of history to the fans. For more on Izzy, please visit her website here.

All proceeds will support the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
