Earlier this year we introduced you to the Gotstyle Thigh Guidefor pantswhich gave you a quick road map through some of our brands and their varying fits. The goal, to educate and empower you to find the perfect fit to match your body. After an overwhelming positive response to the guide we are back with a version dedicated to suits.
Much like pants, finding the right suit can be a daunting task especially for those who dislike shopping to begin with. In an effort to easy your pain and anguish we’ve put together the Gotstyle Thigh Guide for suits. Below you’ll see a quick over view of the various body types and the respective brands we’d recommend to match them. Granted the guide isn’t perfect but we definitely hope it helps in pointing you in the right direction. Give it a try and let us know how it worked for you.
Gotta love some good press! Today, we learned that our passion project got featured on global powerhouse Hypebeast thanks to an amazing photo series done by Toronto streetstyle photographer @TheBrightestHour.
In 2014, Gotstyle launched the #LupulStyleinitiative with Maple Leafs superstar Joffrey Lupul to raise money and awareness for the True Patriot Love foundation. A Canadian not-for-profit organization designed to help military families in need. Even though that phase of our initiative through #LupulStyle project came to a close and raised over 25k our commitment to TPL and our veterans never did. To keep the momentum alive we teamed up with our good friends George and Henry of Sully Wong to create an exclusive commemorative digi-camo sneaker that celebrated our Canadian Armed Forces and continued our commitment to them.
Devon Travis is not a complicated man. For him, it’s about the love of baseball, the Blue Jays and living the dream. But being a major leaguer means dressing like one. And with players like Danny Valencia running the style game it’s only fitting that Devon step to the up to plate. To guide him to greener pastures Sportsnet anchor Hazel Mae teamed up with our founder Melissa Austria to give Devon a makeover he’ll never forget. Press play to see how it all went down.
This is definitely turning into a year that keeps on giving. Now in its 17th year, the PROFIT/Chatelaine W100 just named Founder/Owner Melissa Austria as one of their Top Female Entrepreneurs in Canada!

Big thanks to the Riva Richmond, Director of Digital Media at The Story Exchange for her awesome feature on our Founder Melissa Austria. For those of you unfamiliar with The Story Exchange they are a nonprofit media organization dedicated to telling the personal and professional stories of women business owners. As a women in a “man’s world” this feature is both an honour and poignant reminder of everything Melissa has accomplished in her entrepreneurial life.
