10 years ago, surrounded by male colleagues and friends with a need to dress better, we launched Gotstyle. No more athletic socks, tattered tees or old trainers. We have dedicated ourselves to upgrading the men of Toronto – from the bedroom to the boardroom – and are now offering our distinct in-store experience to the world with Gotstyle.ca.
The time to re-invent your wardrobe is now. Our never-changing mantra rings true to this day. Dress Better. Do Better. It works.
Charlotte “Colour is Key”
Operations Manager since 2010
Charlotte displays boundless energy for her zillion different duties. Every one of her days is different- from marketing to finance to trouble shooting for everything. Her passion for Gotstyle is as real as it is refreshing- she is as dedicated to the business as an artist is to Picasso.
Neale “Style is Relative”
Manager/ Visual Merchandiser
Neale is a sticker. His passion and commitment become quickly apparent- he has been with Gotstyle since inception, helping cultivate the brand from the ground up. He is brilliant at reading people and tapping into their individual aesthetic. This makes the Gotstyle customer very comfortable and very, very happy- in and out of the store.
Hana “High on Heels”
Assistant Buyer since 2013
Hana is effervescent and vivacious. She is a bundle of contradictions- completely consumed by the creative side of fashion, yet analytical and numbers oriented enough to deal with the bottom line- essentially the perfect buyer. There is no mistaking her ultra girly style. She very rarely rocks pants and adores the highest of heels.
JENYA “Details, Details”
Stylist since 2014
Jenya is endlessly obsessed with texture – she believes that the fabrics need to feel as good as they look. Her knowledge of style, garment construction and how to adapt pieces to every lifestyle have gained her fans galore. Her confidence-inspiring attitude, and eye for design change the way men feel when they look in the mirror. Her killer smile also helps..
Konstantine “Tailor Extraordinaire”
Made to Measure Manager since 2013
Konstantine is a craftsman. He has an extraordinarily strong background as a master tailor with the most old school of training. He is calm, elegant and lovely. He works closely with Gotstyle customers to build ideal looks for their body type- especially when off the rack is impossible or they want to customize something special.
BEE “Wear Yourself”
Stylist since 2014
If Bee were to stand outside of Bryant Park during Fashion Week, street style photographers would gather like moths to a flame. Her edgy, but refined style is s super hit with clients, who also admire her honesty and commitment to helping everyone “wear themselves” – letting their unique personality shine through.
Maxim “I Studied Style on the Street”
Stylist/Footwear Buyer since 2011
Meet Maxim, a model turned stylist with a very individual approach to dressing his clients. Modelling broadened his taste, but he maintains that most of his inspiration comes from spying on the street. He has the most unique regimen for dressing ever- from “Blue Monday” to “Ready to Rock Thursday”, this stylist can clothe anyone regardless of the day or weather.
PAMELA “The Manscaper”
Grooming Specialist since 2005
Pamela is a visionary. She predicts trends in men’s grooming light years before anyone else. Specializing in European creative cutting and urban design, her attention to the face and skincare expertise make her shaves a to-die-for experience. She is fun, kicky and works hard to enhance her clients’ best features. They always leave her salon happier- and handsomer.
Mallory “Black is Back”
Store Manager since 2012
Radiating patience and good-humour, Mallory has an expertise that extends to all the finer points of formalwear. She loves interacting with clients and having a positive impact on how they view themselves. Her know-how leaves grooms looking imposing and feeling ultra confident. Her personal aesthetic is heavily influenced by menswear (she rocks tons of black) and she completely lives for statement making accessories.
Phil “The Fixer”
Handyman Extraordinaire since 2011
Phil is so multi-talented, just listening to his lengthy list of accomplishments can be overwhelming. He almost single-handedly built the Distillery store- including tables and fixtures, is a sometimes model and does inventory. His style depends on his duties that day, but he has one of the best philosophies for dressing ever- borrowed from a very wise uncle. “Just because you’re a mechanic, doesn’t mean you have to dress like one.”
NICOLE “Don’t Over Think It”
Stylist since 2011
Nicole, Nicole, Nicole. She is so positive, sweet and happy. It is very clear that she loves her job. All of these affirmative attributes lend themselves to being an especially skilled stylist. She lives to help men embrace their own personal style and encourages a laid back attitude to clothes (Don’t over think it! Have fun!).
LINDA “Spreadsheet Superstar”
Linda’s organizational skills would do any country a favour. She’s a complete problem solver, attacking issues from every angle and always finding the best solution with patience, understanding and grace. She’s super dedicated to her job because she wholeheartedly believes that “clothes = identity”. And she’s willing to work hard to help people look good.”
TIA “Push Your Limits”
Tia is a super keen, super detail oriented stylist who gets the job done. She is very sure of herself and has a conservative, but edgy sense of style heightened by subtle nuances and clever details. She is a strong proponent of fit (who cares what the number is!) and loves pushing her client’s boundaries to take looks to the next level.
