Call us biased but when you have Lennox Lewis lead a pack of 23 awesome celebrities down your runway during Toronto Men’s Fashion Week there’s no contest that your show just shut it down. That was the scene last week when we teamed up with TOM* to sponsor and style their annual celebrity Men’s Fashion4Hope charity runway show.

Hosted at College park the event was a sold out success- and quite possibly one of the most entertaining shows of the week. Not shocking when you consider that you have a collective of athletes, musicians, actors, youtube superstars and a few politicians strutting their stuff. Perhaps the only thing more interesting than the characters in the show was the fact that each celebrity was outfitted in our latest Fall/Winter styles. That may not seem to impressive at first until of course you take note of the fact that we dressed everyone off-the-rack, ranging From 6’4 Lennox Lewis down to 5’5 Senator Tobias Enverga- there were no special orders or made-to-measure, absolutely everything featured on the runway was off-the-rack! Scroll down to see all the outfits.

Special thanks to our resident stylists Shaeleigh Afton & Sharad Mohan for styling our celebrities.

A Year In Review: Best Of 2014

December 31, 2014

And there you have it, in a blink of an eye we’re here, the last day of 2014. As we reflect back on days gone by we can’t help but recognize that none of our success would’ve been possible without your continued support. As such, first and foremost we’d like to thank all our loyal friends and customers for making this year even better than the last.

From the official launch of our new Gotstyle App, to #LupulStyle 2.0, not to forget our epic parties, it’s hard to image that we were able to squeeze so much into yet another year. We hope you’ve enjoyed the journey thus far and invite you to join us for another exciting year.

Did we mention, 2015 marks our official 10 Year Anniversary?! So you know that things are only going to get bigger, better, grander.

TPL GotStyle 111114-20

On Remembrance Day, November 11, 2014, the team at Gotstyle, alongside Toronto Maple Leaf left winger Joffrey Lupul was honoured to host a special event in support of the True Patriot Love Foundation where we presented TPL with the  largest significant grassroots, social media campaign donation of $25,000.

For those of you unfamiliar, last seasons Melissa Austria, founder of Gotstyle and Joffrey Lupul banded together to create a unique program called #LupulStyle that seamlessly combined the world of fashion and philanthropy. With the power of social media, LupulStyle.com was born to provided readers great style advice while driving awareness towards various causes that are close to both parties. In our inaugural years our charity of choice was True Patriot Love a national charity that honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict. True Patriot Love accomplishes its mission by funding unique programs and innovative research in the areas of mental health, physical rehabilitation, family support and veteran transition. True Patriot Love also seeks to change the conversation about the challenges facing today’s military community by hosting ambitious expeditions and hosting international symposia.

“I wanted to contribute to True Patriot Love because they make sure our soldiers know that when they return there is support for them and that they feel honoured for the commitment they made to our country”, says Melissa Austria.

Even though, this phase of our initiative through #LupulStyle may have come to a close our commitment to TPL and our veterans hasn’t. In honour of our troops we are proud to announce two limited edition programs: the #heroeswearcamo tees and the exclusive Gotstyle x Sully Wong digital came sneaker. With the purchase of each of those items Gotstyle will be donating proceeds to the True Patriot Love Foundation.
