Most men can’t get away with linen suits or the chino/ short-sleeve collar combination at the office. Business still requires proper attire- no matter how scorching the summer heat. For men bound to this timeless tradition, we offer a range of polished suiting by Tiger of Sweden. Common sense dictates that short of showing up almost nude, an investment in lighter shades assists in keeping internal temperatures low. Tans, pale blues and dove greys repel heat and wear extra effortlessly. If the repertoire currently includes subtle solids, patterns like the classic windowpane check are an exemplary option- professional, distinct and full of corporate character.
Last week (July 16th to be exact), GS kicked off Toronto Indy week in style with an exclusive media and VIP event honouring two-time Grand Prix racer, Simon Pagenaud. The fete, held on the posh Bloor St. terrace at LS Bistro, treated the well-dressed crowd to decadent cocktails by Grey Goose Cherry Noir and light, French-inspired canapés. As with all Gotstyle affairs, it was our loyal customers who made the event a stellar success. Thanks to all who attended- our evening was exceptionally unforgettable.
We hope everyone enjoyed themselves, and the opportunity to meet guest of honour Simon Pagenaud. We’d also like to to extend our sincerest gratitude to the ultra-amazing sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible:
It’s official, athletes are the new red carpet risk-takers- proven beyond a doubt by the 2014 ESPYs. For those unfamiliar with the ESPYs (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly), the award show is presented by the American cable television network ESPN and honours individual and team athletic achievement, as well as other sports-related performance. This year’s show which aired on July 17th, was hosted by Toronto’s very own Drake and proved a shining example of how male athletes have been stepping up their sartorial game of late. While there were plenty of notable female athletes in attendance, this year, the men undoubtably stole the show.
Here are our picks for the Best Dressed Men at the 2014 ESPY Awards.
If we had a penny for every time a man told us he is either “too young, too old, too tall or too small etc. etc. etc.” to rock a particular style or trend, then there would be ten Gotstyles. The truth of the matter is, age has nothing to do with it, instead personality and attitude are the deciding factors in adopting a trend- and making it your own. The key to embracing a specific style or article of clothing is understanding how it works for you. Shorts are a first-rate example; styling them in your 20s often differs from how 50 year olds choose to wear them.
In this GS how-to, we showcase our wide selection of summer shorts and how to pull them off at any age. Clean and classic or super fashion-forward, there is definitely a pair for everyone.

Rolling is a true art- Gotstyle wants to help you master it. Our style tutorial features Melissa (queen of the cuff), with a demonstration on how to properly roll shirt-sleeves and pants. Why is this significant to your life? Because the devil is in the details and you always want to look your best. Rolling sleeves correctly enables a show-off of the hip contrast cuff and lends the same cred as the Milanese street style icons who’ve embraced their ankles. Acquire this simple skill and you’ll wonder how you lived any other way. Consider the bowtie. Do your own and the pre-tie is a thing of the past.
Our short video tutorial shows just how simple it is to display the high style contrast cuffs. Rolling also adds subtle finesse to attire and allows for cool- even in the high heat of the season.
