When it comes to airport style, it’s easy to tell apart the novices from the pros who know how to travel right.

Don’t be that guy with the terrible airport style. You know the one… wearing a t-shirt from the last location he visited tucked into jean shorts. With high socks and sneakers that should’ve been left in 1997. A rolling suitcase that could double as a coffee table. You’re better than that.

Airport style is surprisingly easy. The key to success? Focus on clean, comfortable, and versatile fits. Let’s check out some well-executed travel looks and break down how to do airport style right.

David Beckham

A seasoned travel vet, Beckham nails this functional & comfortable airport look. Notice how he skips the large baggage for a knapsack and duffle — both easy to carry-on and a huge time saver when you land. A comfy crewneck sweater works well with his slim denim. He tops off the look with the smartest move of all: chelsea boots that slide on and off with ease. Shoelaces and airport security do not mix.

Gotstyle – Sleek Chelsea Leather Boot ($295)

Idris Elba

Comfortable? Versatile? Check and check. Elba keeps his baggage light with a simple backpack. A Henley and light wash denim makes for a clean, masculine airport style that takes all of 0.2 seconds to put together. Don’t overthink it — this is perfect.

Ryan Reynolds

Sensing a trend here? Reynolds skips the suitcase in favor of a carry-on duffle. The Canadian keeps his outfit minimal: well-cut chinos and a v-neck sweater. Comfortable for a long flight and fresh enough to confidently step out afterward.

Monte & Coe – Wool Felt Duffle Bag with Leather Trim ($489)

John Varvatos – Knit V-Neck Sweater ($125 – on sale)

Aziz Ansari

We’ll give Aziz a pass on the big suitcase (his flight was transatlantic). On his way back from Italy, Ansari kills this classy/casual airport look. Loafers and lightweight chinos embody sharp Italian style while remaining comfortable and functional for a long flight. A simple t-shirt and low-key accessories add some polish. This look works for literally any guy.

Patrick Dempsey – Age 51

Stick to what you know, you can tell that a great pair of pants and a great pair of boots is key for Patrick’s look.  Try the: Buckson Slacks and this Geox Chelsea Boot.

Daniel Craig – 48 daniel-craig-most-stylish-men-over-40-5

Daniel Craig is a classic man. He works essential menswear pieces, like the brown shoe and true blue denim into his look for clean and easy outfits.

For more on essential menswear pieces watch this video.

Robert Downey JR – 51

robert-downy-most-stylish-men-over-40-1

Robert Downey has fun and that’s what we love about him. For his look try incorporating one punchy item. It shows you’re confident, and at 51 you better be.

Ryan Reynolds – 40

ryan-reynolds-most-stylish-men-over-40-3

Ryan is definitely not a suit and tie guy, he wears jeans and is almost always wearing a great outerwear piece.

If you’re a t-shirt guy, invest in jackets to pull everything together. For Ryan approved denim try the Lean Dean by Nudie.

Sting – 65 years

sting-most-stylish-men-over-40-2

After 50+ years you’ve developed your signature style. Sting, a clear lover of silver, knits, tight jeans and skinny scarves.

Try This: If you like Sting’s style try brands like John Varvatos. The brand is worn by almost every artist from your youth, with tight– but not ball-crushingly tight, jeans.

John Varvatos - Bowery 4 Way Stretch Denim - gotstylemenswear - 1John Varvatos - Admirals Jacket - gotstylemenswear - 2

Idris Elba – 44

irdis-elba-most-stylish-men-over-40-4

If you’re the kind of guy who has always loved fashion you don’t have to lose it because you’re getting older. The secret is to stay in great shape, invest in quality fashion pieces. You’ve gotta avoid fast fashion like Zara altogether.

We like Hardy Amies for luxe overcoats and Paradigma for funky, well made shoes.

5 Men’s Holiday Style Looks

November 29, 2016

5 Men’s Holiday Style looks borrowed from celebrities Donald Glover, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Will Smith and Nick Jonas

Consider the holiday season your time to literally shine. Say yes to metallic dinner jackets, bold AF lapels (if you’re not scarred from the 80’s) and make a statement damn it!

This week we took a look at our favourite red carpet celebrity style moves and re-created them with pieces we’ve got in store.

Donald Glover – Entertainment One Party

Pairing black and navy is no longer unacceptable which makes it a style TKO. If you want this to work you need a smoking slipper. Any dress shoe would destroy the casual element to this look.

Tom Hardy – TIFF Red Carpet

This look is classic in nature but it’s the accessories that say “Don’t f*ck with me.” What else would you expect from Mr. Hardy? Go light on the shirt and reeeally add contrast with the accessories. Finishing with a black chelsea boot is non-negotiable.

Nick Jonas – MVAs

So you’re not really into blazers? Do a bomber jacket instead. You have to tuck in your shirt. If the pleat scares you, opt for a classic fitting style instead of your trim dress pants.

Inimigo – Reversible Camo Jacket $295

Idris Elba

So simple. This is such a boys night out look. Velvet smoking jacket and wide as the smile on her face lapels make sure you’re the star of the night. Pair with an equally stylish friend and own the night.

NYFS – Tuxedo Jacket w Contrast Peak Lapel $725

Will Smith – Movie Red Carpet

The party suit. It’s bold, it’s check, and sometimes it’s got the vest to match. Tip: If you find a suit that doesn’t have a matching vest put a cardigan of similar colour underneath. And if you’re a frequent reader you already know not to put a dress shirt underneath your suit.

Celebrity Men’s Style is 90% of my Instagram feed.

Celebrity Men’s Style is a God send. Even as a stylist, I have days when I wake up with no idea what to wear. What do I do when lacking inspiration?  Look to the stars! I check Instagram hashtags to see what my favorite stylists and celebrities are wearing.

Then– I recreate the look with something similar in my closet!

This week, I featured four looks that you can recreate with pieces from Gotstyle.


Eddie Redmayne

Eddie is one of my favorites because his off-duty looks are just as on point as his suiting. Denim over a sweater is one of those “try very little–look very good” tricks to keep in your style bank. Random fact: The UK actor wears a lot of Hardy Amies which we sell here at Gotstyle!

Kanye West

Can we just call him the king of overcoats? Kanye can pull out this same look every week and I’m impressed every time! We call that uniform dressing. Although it lacks creativity, when you get that uniform right, you continue to get it right–everytime.

Ryan Gosling

This guy is the reason the souvenir jacket blew TF up. Well, his Stylist… BUT he made certainly made it look good enough for anyone who likes fashion to grab. Gosling is a guys guy, nothing really trendy and almost always wearing a scoop neck white t-shirt. This look is really easy to achieve. I’m sure most guys have all these pieces at home already. Just add shearling!

Street Style Seen On Instagram

Regular people have great style too! I saw this snap on Instagram and was drawn to how his outfit manages to be electric and subtle at the same time. This is when something just works. The shawl collar is back again, can you tell it’s trending?
