the-long-shirt-trend

Long shirts and Justin Bieber, you’ve been warned.

Until recently, I couldn’t even get my boyfriend to listen to Justin Bieber. But since the release of his Purpose album, he like so many others caught the “Bieber Fever.”

Dressing like him, well that’s what I’m working on next.

Did you know some websites track everything this guy wears? Canadian clothing and advertising company Faded Lifestyle and One Method found out when he started wearing their clothes and they’re site blew the f*ck up.

How ecstatic to know we’d be bringing in these two lines because that’s all he’s been wearing lately. Okay maybe I’m exaggerating, but he’s been seen wearing it, like a lot. Ultimately meaning I’m a little bit closer to dating JB.

BUT Bieber isn’t the only reason we’re backing these new lines. Their signature extended length bamboo long shirts are 100% made in Canada and comfy-as-heck. They are the layering staple your closet has been missing!! Girls too!

But why?
Well, layering isn’t new, and the length could be attributed to hip-hop.  (Dem Franchise Boyz, anyone?) This look is probably not for you if you’re over 35. They’ve been suuuper modernized since their last outbreak in the 2000’s. The body is cut slimmer and they’re much tighter in the sleeve. The shirts neckline is deep which makes it perfect for flexing those pecs, collar bones, and tats.

What do I wear with them?
These long shirts look best when you pair them with drop crotch pants and joggers. Anything with a mid rise-regular rise will look like you don’t get it. Double up, wear two at a time. One shorter and one longer. Put your short sleeve over a long sleeve. The shirts are all designed with a raw hem and can be cut to your desired length, or even asymmetrically if you’re into that.

How do I get in on the trend if I’m vertically challenged?
You caaaaan do it but keep your shirt lengths proportionate to your body, meaning shorter layers. Plus if you can throw on a bomber on that hits at your waist it will break you up nicely.

How do I know if I’m doing it right?
As soon as you stop caring! Nonchalance inspires the look; it’s grungy and effortlessly cool. Own it!

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

April 27, 2016

Mothers Day Gift Ideas for the Gotstyle Man compliments of Gotstyle Woman.

What is good enough for the person that literally gave you life? Moms have put up with the makeshift crafts, coupons, and cards. It’s hard to impress the women that might have everything, so this year we want to break out of the Mother’s Day gifting stereotypes – not everyone wants flowers. 

Moms can be sexy and edgy, career driven, a decadent hippie or an athletic goddess. The point is moms are unique, and they probably know you better than you know yourself sometimes. So why not give them something great this year, that is totally them.

This gift guide is for all your modern moms who deserve the Moon but when that’s not the easiest to get, Gotstyle Woman has you covered.

What festivals are you going to this year? What trends will you be rocking? Comment below and let us know what trends you want to see us feature!

prom-suits

A prom suit can be the first investment piece for a young guy’s future.

We think the celebration of prom should be rewarded with a good suit! The growth spurts have passed and he’s ready to man up. This is one of the first times he’ll need a suit (that isn’t black) so look at it as an investment. So many guys rent, or wear suits that are passed down or very dated ultimately missing out on the opportunity to have a great suit ready in the closet for all of the occasions after graduation. Don’t let him go to prom in a dated suit. Buy right and he can wear it to his first interviews! Invest now and he will be able to wear it for job interviews, college interviews, and maybe even a few dates!

Pricing: Our half canvas suits start at $650 (multiple styles) floating chest piece/fused suits starting at $495 and full canvas (Eidos Napoli) ranging from $1400-1600. Wherever your price range is, we can suit him up!

We’re calling all Dads, Uncles, Grandpas and family friends… rather than lending him yours, bring him to Gotstyle. Get him his own quality (we recommend a half or full canvas) suit to wear for years to come. He’ll thank you – We promise!

What I Learned at Prom

April 22, 2016

Prom is one of the most memorable experiences kids have. Don’t let your cousin, brother, son wear your old suit. He can use this opportunity to get his first suit one that will be able to wear to his first interview.

There are a lot of options out there at different price points. Check out our prom guide and don’t forget we have a major contest that could pimp your entire prom.

Melissa Austria, Owner & Curator of Gotstyle

“Don’t get too intoxicated that you don’t remember the night. Prom is a pretty important moment in your life and it’s a chance to party with all your high school friends.

Phil Campbell, Operations Assistant Manager

“Honestly just enjoy the night and have fun with it. This might be the last chance you have to create memories with people you’ve spent 4 years with.”

Shaeleigh Afton, Digital Marketing Manager

“I realized spending $700 on a dress that I will never wear again is stupid– but thanks Grandpa! Guys, with the right suit you can always wear your it again (like to an interview). And pictures are important so take as many as you can.”

Scan copy

Mallory Hood, Distillery Store Manager & Wedding Co-ordinator

“My date wore a double breasted jacket that I think he borrowed from his dad and smelled like rum the whole night. The teal dress is one of my biggest regrets in my life. The one thing I can say is if you invest in a good suit (and in a good friend) it will last you for years to come. 10 years later my date and I are still amazing friends.”

Linda Giang, Digital Marketing Co-ordinator

“A lot of us seem to regret our dresses. Mostly because we usually get ones we can’t wear again. But I think at the time, that’s what we’re into. I would suggest going to a boutique store that knows what’s classic yet in style and will give honest advice because we can’t really trust our taste at that age.”

Alex Danyer, Distillery Stylist & Assistant Womenwear Buyer

“Definitely get comfortable shoes.You’re standing so much from all the pictures that get taken and dancing all night. People thought I was drunk because I kept holding onto my date for support! Don’t make the same mistake.”

“7 years later I can still fit into my prom dress. The more people you date in high school, the more proms you get to go to!”
