The NBA Finals

The NBA Finals have wrapped up and the Golden State Warriors came out on top as champions. Kevin Durant was named NBA Finals MVP, but one big question remains: who was the series’ best dressed?

The NBA Finals featured NBA Style heavyweights on both sides.

Scour NBA Twitter or Instagram on any given night — you’ll see Warriors Steph Curry and KD entering the stadium in slim fit faded denim or Cavaliers LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in perfectly tailored suits.

Without further ado, let’s break down the best fits of the NBA Finals and name our MVP. Along the way, we’ll show how you can rock the same looks.

NBA Finals – Honourable Mentions

Kevin Love

K Love may have been underwhelming at times on the court, but this off-court look was on point. His Double Breasted suit is a statement piece. Luxe suede high tops add a casual vibe and tie the outfit together nicely.

Lewis Hamilton & Neymar

Okay, these guys aren’t actually NBA players. But they still get style points for sitting courtside in distressed denim, track jacket (Hamilton), vintage shades (Hamilton again), and bomber jacket (Neymar). We’ll pay homage where it’s due.

Kyrie Irving

As the youngest of the Cavs’ big 3, Kyrie does a great job of injecting some youth into grown man looks. The hoodie under his blazer is a staple athleisure move. Patterned socks add a pop of colour to an otherwise darker look. Rumble young man rumble.

Iman Shumpert

One of the NBA’s perennially best-dressed players, Shumpert doesn’t hesitate to take style risks with loud pieces like this patterned cardigan. He anchors the look well by wearing darker, muted tones elsewhere. When wearing a statement item like the cardigan it should do the talking. Everything else is its supporting cast (kinda like Iman).

Steph Curry

Similar to his teammate KD, the “Babyface Assassin” killed his finals looks with tailored denim, striped tees, and luxe bombers. The 2-time league MVP opted for Chelsea boots instead of sneakers — an easy hack to make a casual outfit a little more upscale.

Runner Up

Tristan Thompson

Toronto native Tristan Thompson took his style game to another level this season. For the finals, he broke out All-NBA level fits night after night. Some consistent themes: peak lapels, air ties, micropatterns, pinstripes, and perfectly-executed accessories. This is NBA suiting at its best. TT is ready to be considered among the league’s style elite.

MVP

LeBron James

The King may have been dethroned on the court, but off the court his style reigns supreme. Opting for a more casual vibe than in previous years Finals, LeBron put on a clinic in high end sportswear. Styling his biker jacket with track pants is the perfect badass yet comfortable casual look. He wore tons of stripes, but never on more than one piece at a time. While a lot of his gear is designer, the looks are easy for anyone to pull off at varied price points. You can’t go wrong with King James’ recipe of great fitting, versatile basics.

Gotstyle’s 10 Year Anniversary’s Best Dressed

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary last summer at the Audi downtown dealership in Toronto. It was also in celebration and debut of the first issue of Gotstyle Man. The party featured a live band and a collection of influential guest at the fashion show; this fashionable event filled the room with many well-dressed men.

There were many dapper and unique looks, everyone came in their best dressed, but there are some who stood out from the rest. We love a good tuxedo, suit and colour combination. Click through our gallery to see if you made the list. Don’t forget to get your tickets for our upcoming Gotstyle Man Issue #3 Party. Proceeds go to support the local charity, The Remix Project.

 

 

 

The Gotstyle, private label shirt collection was created for guys like you. Melissa explains why she created the Gotstyle shirt. 

One issue I kept seeing was tall guys with long arms unable to find a dress shirt that fit them properly without having to go to made to measure. Most dress shirt brands come in two sleeve lengths: regular which measure a 33-inch sleeve and long which measures a 35-inch sleeve. These guys all had a 35 – 37-inch sleeve length, so no matter how many brands I tried they were just that little bit too short. As soon as they washed or dry cleaned their shirt a few times it would shrink past the “acceptable” mark.

After I had enough guys coming through with the same issue, I decided if I can’t find a shirt that fit my guys, we’d make our own! I started working with one of our shirt suppliers; Lipson shirts.

They are based here in Toronto and have been making Canadian made dress shirts for over 50 years selling to all the top menswear stores across Canada and the U.S.

We developed our own body – using the slimmest fit that they had (which for us is our average fit) and extended the sleeve length on the long to 37 inches. Bingo! We got the fit that my guys were looking for. It has enough room to accommodate guys who work out (and those who don’t) and trim enough to show your shape (or make it look like you have some) with a sleeve length that worked.

Our trick in the store now when we see a tall guy come in with long arms, is to bet them that we have a shirt off the rack that will fit them. They always protest that no shirt every fits them off the rack, we get them to try our Gotstyle shirt… and of course we win the bet (and they buy the shirt!)

5 ways to elevate office style

Cover photo credit: Van Gils

You know the guy that’s a little bit too obvious about being on a 5 day work wardrobe rotation? Don’t let that guy be you. It may be easy to get caught in the trap of wearing a boring office uniform, but dressing for success is key to showing professionalism and ambition. Switching up your style and taking things to the next level can be easy. I’m here to help with 5 ways to elevate your office style.

OFFICE STYLE TIP #1: GO CUSTOM
When it comes to suits, great fit matters over everything. Even if you don’t wear a suit every day, it’s important to have a perfectly tailored suit in your repertoire for meetings, presentations, and events. Think of your best suit as your go-to for when you need to step things up —  and nothing will fit (and look) better than a suit made expressly for you.

For details on the made to measure process, pricing, and advantages, Gotstyle’s tailor extraordinaire Konstantine has got you covered.

OFFICE STYLE TIP #2: ACCESSORIZE
The easiest way to elevate your office style is to add new accessories to your existing office wardrobe. It’s simple addition by, well, addition. Lapel pins, pocket squares, tie bars, shoe laces, and even work bags are all ways you can add pops of style and colour.

URI MINKOFF FULTON LEATHER OFFICE BRIEFCASE
Uri Minkoff Fulton Leather Briefcase: $438

OFFICE STYLE TIP #3: ADD A VEST
A vest is a simple way to class up any office look. Wear it with one of your standard 2 piece suits to add complexity, texture, and contrast. Or, just roll up your sleeves and wear it over a well fitted dress shirt as a more casual look (this looks good on literally every guy).

One thing to watch out for: don’t try to match a new vest colour to an existing suit. Unless you have the exact same fabric, it won’t work, and will look off. The solution? Go with a contrast vest, and introduce a new colour to the suit entirely. It’s an unexpected look that shows off your style chops. Grey and blue (like in the photo above) always pair well, and can be used interchangeably between vest and suit.

Circle of Gentlemen Kenyon Herringbone Shawl Double Breasted Vest: $175

OFFICE STYLE TIP #4: WEAR A TIE
If you don’t normally wear a tie, step up your office style and wear one! There’s no better way to show you mean business.

If your office is casual or you don’t see yourself as a “tie guy,” try a knit or textured tie as a casual midway point between your usual laidback style and something that’s too formal.

OFFICE STYLE TIP #5: SUITS WITH BOOTS
Wearing a suit with boots is an awesome way to switch up a stale office rotation, but you need to do it right. If your suit fits well (which it should), the boots you pair with it need to be sleek and slim fitting. You want the outfit to look well put together and intentional — and not like you haven’t changed yet from your morning commute. The best way to achieve this? Chelsea boots.

Both of these looks (courtesy of GQ) add some rocker edge to a suiting look, without being too chunky or out of place. It’s a menswear power move, and you can totally pull it off. Reserve this look for fall and winter, and make sure to match your belt and boots to keep everything tied together.
