Inspired by Champion’s glory days, Todd Snyder + Champion is a great collaboration that delivers a stylish and utilitarian collection that can be worn both to the office and the gym, thus offering the perfect balance between versatility and utility.
Coined as one of the biggest trends for the season, this modern updated interpretation of athletic wear is easy to style and a definite wardrobe must-have. Pair it with some Zanerobe’s and a leather bomber or a double breasted jacket and denim, the end result will always be the same, sport luxe at its finest.

Ticket Pocket (n.): Is a small pocket (jetted or flapped) on the outside of a suit jacket traditionally located above the right main pocket.
Traditionally, a distinctly British detail, the ticket pocket owes most of its popularity to the early days of train travel in the UK. As suggested by many historical references many city workers and other commuters needed a pocket that provided easy access to their train tickets- seems logical enough to want a ticket pocket to hold your ticket. However, upon further investigation and a few google searches later we discovered that the ticket pocket actually predates this popular myth.
Last week the city of Toronto hosted our very first Men’s Fashion Week known globally as TOM*. The event was a monumental success and something we are very proud to be part off. Our role the official sponsor of the Fashion4Hope celebrity runway show gave us the distinct pleasure of dressing some of this city’s most beloved celebrities- legendary designer David Dixon, fashion ambassador Glen Baxter, musicians Jarvis Church and Shawn Desman, TV personalities Devon Soltendieck, Tyrone Edwards, Carlos Bustamante and Steven & Chris…just to name a few.
Taking sartorial cues from screen legends like Frank Sinatra and other old Hollywood heavyweights, our feature runway show previewed a wide collection of formalwear, from vibrant sportcoat combinations to classic shawl collar tuxedos. We are thrilled that our sold-out show had the audience on their feet and raised some serious coin for the Fashion4Hope charity benefiting Kol Hope Foundation for Children and SickKids Hospital (GS alone donated $4,000.)
Here is your exclusive behind-the-scenes look at our show.
Zanerobe’s recklessly cool style has left the realm of trend and entered essential territory. Shop the Sureshot and Dynamo chinos in new hues- rockable with sportcoats to leather bombers to basic tees. As for sizing, take your normal size for a regular fit, size down for slim, and one up for a slouchy look. Shop online or in-store now- we don’t want to hear it when they’re all gone.
Looking good always works in your favour- especially when the outcome is having your wedding featured in a magazine. Meet Scott and Heather, the latest GS couple to tie the knot. Their nuptials were so stunning that Wedding Essentials magazine picked it up and detailed it for their Fall ’14 issue.
Scott came to us looking for a suit that would fluidly match his personal style- summer/ cottage (even in the rain) chic. After an enlightening consultation with our made-to-measure expert Konstantine, the sartorial wheels were set in motion. The end result- a custom, made-to-measure, three-piece in Dove grey that fit like a proverbial glove. With every last trimming in place, the suit and Scott were a perfect pair- attire wise.
