Regulars at GS events know that our dos bring out the most dapper men in the city. Last week’s 19 Crimes launch event took style to bold new heights. After scouring album after album, we’ve picked our favourite and most compelling looks of the evening. Our IT list isn’t about the most daring or bizarre, it’s about those with the confidence and cool to be themselves, celebrate their true aesthetic and who possess a unique understanding of what works for their body and build.
Here’s our tribute to the attendees who set the bar high at the GS 19 Crimes event.
Last week, in true Gotstyle fashion, we threw a criminally amazing fete celebrating the Ontario launch of 19 Crimes- a winery out of Australia that produces two exceptional reds- the 2012 Shiraz Durif and the Shiraz Grenache Mataro. The event, held at our grand Distillery District location, treated the well-dressed crowd to delicious glasses of 19 Crimes wine along with an assortment of divine hors d’oeuvres. As with all GS affairs, it was our loyal customers who made the event special and stellar. Thanks to all who attended the mobster soiree and for making it yet another memorable evening.
Colour blocking, liquid brights, European lengths- the new, new season swimwear is less basic, more brash. Look for bolder trunks that hit above the knee (the three inch rule generally works), and in patterns that call immediate attention to toned physiques- power plaids, daring stripes and vivid hues. Add rugged accessories (beads, straightforward tees, smooth sunnies) to go effortlessly from surf to shore and revel in the dog days of summer.

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.
