Our favorites pieces include The Home is Toronto Varsity Jacket from The Peace Collective. The perfect light-weight jacket for watching fireworks in the park.

Jay’s Vs. Boston – Rogers Center
Is anything more Canadian than a Jays game on Canada Day? Don’t let a sold out game discourage you. Hit up the scalpers or watch the game from a bar. Go Jays go!
Wednesday July 1st 10:00 pm(ish)
Nostalgia, nostalgia.. fireworks still bring out the kid in us. Fortunately, they’re going off all over the city– although our favorite spot is the amateur show in Trinity Bellwoods. Add bubbles and a blanket you’ve got a date. Other firework spots include Harbourfront Center, Ashbridges Bay, Centennial Bay(Ribfest).
Of course you can always spend Canada Day shopping with the Gotstyle staff.
We’ll be open at our Distillery location, 11-6.
Our first summer long-weekend is finally here and while most places are quick close up, we’re poised to serve you! Bringing you the hottest sales and trends for the summer season we’re open all weekend and Canada Day Tuesday. Drop by either locations or shop online of some amazing men’s fashions and deals.
Forget sitting cemented in traffic on a five-hour expedition north, staying city side is the new, new long weekend cool. There is hardly a shortage of Toronto-centric events this coming holiday. Here are our picks for the top happenings- June 28 to Canada Day.
Happy 146th B’day Canada! On this day back in 1867 the Constitution Act united three colonies, giving birth to Canada. Today we’re a robust country of 10 provinces and 3 territories, booming with people from every possible nationality imaginable.
As we celebrate Canada Day we give thanks to all you, our reader, for having supported us for so many years. As one of the few born and bread Canadian retailers your loyalty and continued support has been deeply appreciated. We wish you all Happy and safe Canada Day!
Also note that our Distillery District location is open today from 10am – 8pm
