New Arrivals: Suits By Lab

February 10, 2014

Meet Lab, the younger, cooler brother of Pal Zileri, a luxury tailored clothing line from Italy that truly offers great value for money. For starters just like its older brother Lab only uses the best Italian and performance fabrics for their suits which pretty much guarantees both comfort and style. In addition, these suits are a half canvas construction, which means that they will not only last longer but will also drape better on your body. Lets face it nothing is sexier than a great fitting suit. To top it off, for this season along with our usual styles we’ve expanded our repertoire to include a super slim model with a shorter jacket and trimmer pant. Perfect for Spring and summer weddings.

Come by, try one on and see for yourself why LAB is our best selling suit brand at Gotstyle.




AVAILABLE AT: Bathurst, Distillery

Welcome to the laboratory of the new man, welcome to “LAB.-Pal Zileri”. Consider LAB the son of the Pal Zaileri line as it is designed for a man who remembers and knows the past, but is able to escape from the strict rules of old style. A man who no longer wants to feel shut up in a uniform, but wants to express himself through refined eccentricity, chosen for the pleasure of not going unnoticed. These latest arrivals for summer offer all the great tailoring you’ve come to expect from LAB in some fresh styles that are sure to separate you from the generic mass population.

Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind, party, tan and go on dates. Everyone knows that summer is the time when people come out of hibernation and look to get out, reconnect with old friends and more importantly make new ones. With Spring being break-up season, its only fitting that summer is matting season, make-up season, dating season…you get the idea. Summer offers some great options on what you can do when planning a date, from afternoon picnics, late night dinner, to casual walks by the water. Unlike winter where you are confined to being indoors, summer definitely opens the doors to possibilities, which can only work in your favour.

Once you’ve got the girl and activity nailed down, pardon the innuendo, the next step is to figure out what you’re going to wear. Your outfit is key in ensuring that you put your best foot forward, because there is no doubt that she will be paying attention. To help you in that department we reached out to our stylists to put together some of their best “Summer Date” outfits.

Neal: My inspiration for my Summer Date outfit was a nice day in the park or on the beach. I wanted a look that would be nice and fashionable yet light and airy. To start with I picked these great shorts by Parke and Ronen, they offer a great fit and are made of a nice light weight cotton making them very breathable and comfortable for long walks. I paired that with a Parke and Ronen mesh cardigan which I layered with a fun stripped tank by Benson. Mesh cardigans are on trend right now and offer a nice twist to classic sartorial style.

No picnic or beach date is complete without the appropriate accessories. For this outfit I included a large tote bag from benson for all your sunscreen, towels, hats and flask incase you get “thirsty”.  I also added a light John Varvatos scarf so you’re prepared incase it gets a little cooler in the evening.

Daria: My Summer Date outfit revolves around going on a nice dinner where you want to dress up but not look overly stuffy. It’s all about keeping it summery and light, yet sophisticated. I started with a classic navy Oscar shirt. This shirt is a no-brainer as it goes with everything and require very little finessing.  Same is true of the sport jacket, the great check pattern allows the wearer to pretty much pair it with any colour or style. You can dress it up, as we’ve done here with a pair of Hiltil trousers or down with a nice pair of jeans for a casual afternoon brunch.

One of my favourite items in this look are the light grey brogues from John Varvatos. These shoes are simply great, the light shade offers a nice twist to a smart summer shoe, while still being versatile enough that you can wear them with trousers or jeans. It’s a perfect example of  what we like to call “sophisticated casual”.

Hiltl Piacenza Check Pant: $228
Sand Wool/Linen Blazer w/ Suede Elblow Patches: $698
Base London Catch Suede Shoe: $175

Nicole: My inspiration is based on a man that is very well put together, he has a good full time job and someone who takes a lot of pride in the way he dresses. For that man there was no other option than our stunning double breasted jacket. This isn’t your fathers old double breasted jacket, it’s modern, stylish and sure to make you stand out from the crowd. What makes this blazer great is that its 1/4 lined making it light weight and ideal for warm summer dates on the boardwalk.

But let’s not forget that any well dressed man knows the importance of details, which is why I added this great WOOD watch which goes perfectly with our monk strap shoes. And for the cherry on top, I threw in one our floral print linen pocket squares…just cause!

 Joel: I think the best dates are spontaneous and you never know where they are going to lead you, so I picked an outfit that would be very versatile and literally take you anywhere. You could go to a fancy dinner or a walk in the park, there are no limitations to where you can go in this outfit.

Wearing colour is on trend right now, which is why I chose these cotton trousers as they are very easy to wear. I paired it with a lot of neutral so that it wasn’t overwhelming in colour. The other main feature of this outfit is the cotton blazer because it adds that bit of formal edge while keeping the look very light weight and easy going. I also love the shoes because even though they seem a little trendy they are a classic and can be worn in the future.

 Lindsay: Mid-Summer night picnic in the park was my inspiration behind my Summer date outfit. With the great summer weather, dates in the park are always a sure bet at being romantic. Keeping that in mind I started with this sport jacket just incase it gets a little chilly as the evening progresses. We added some pop of colour under jacket with with a cool pink shirt (real men wear pink) and green scarf. No picnic is complete without some “beverages” which is why I included our great flask set, incase you guys get a little thirsty.

To round it off I paired this outfit with a nice WOOD watch, AG denim, and classic canvas brogue shoes.
