Bay St Bull Summer 2015 Lo-Res_Page_01

Gotstyle hits a home-run on the cover of The Bay St Bull with #19 Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays. In this latest issue The Bay St Bull celebrates Canada by going coast-to-coast to put together their Power 50 list which features some of the coolest people, places and things that are shaping this country. Needless to say #19 was at the top of their list. In this exclusive feature Jose Bautista gives a candid interview where he talk about his early year, his rise to stardom, lessons learned along the way and how he finds balance between it all.  Click here to read the full article.

Now lets talk a little bit about his style. For this feature story, we pulled together looks that would challenge what we normally see from Jose while still working within his comfort zone. As such we worked heavily with versatile pieces like the jersey blazer, paired with modern chinos, polos, and short sleeve buttons ups. While stepping it up a notch by introducing  the bold windowpane suit to showcase Jose’s bold adventurous side. Just because he’s in uniform most days doesn’t mean the man doesn’t love to dress up when given the chance. And we intentionally kept the colour pallet blue for obvious reasons.

Nudie-Jeans-New-Arrivals-2015

Jeans are a very personal thing and for many serve as a second skin. Your jeans go where you go. They live your lifestyle. They get abrasions and scars. And they bleed. Just like you. The longer you wear them, the more character and attitude they get. Besides denim, only leather has the ability to age so beautifully which is why taking your time to find the right brand for you is so crucial. Fortunately, we’ve got Nudie Jeans. Founded in 1999, the guys at Nudie have devoted themselves to creating the perfect denim brand which is why we keep bringing them back year after year, season after season. The beauty about our collection is that it is truly designed to meet the vast needs and body types of our clients. From different colour ways to fits there’s always something to match you personal style.

Here’s our latest style editorial showcasing our latest Spring 2015 new arrivals from Nudie Jeans.

Fall ’14 Sport Coats For Every Occasion

Sasha Ferkul September 25, 2014

Sport coats that call to mind old-school vocabulary (think natty, snazzy and neat) are key to making fall looks modern. The appeal is obvious, blazers add ten style points to almost all attire. They also work on a technical level to layer, outsmart sloped shoulders or streamline the too-much-beer mid section. Add these accomplished pieces to every day, office and event; sport coats should be considered closet essentials.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Casual

[Casual] Blue Industry Jersey Sport Coat

What it does: Store those parkas a little longer. This off-duty jacket is breathable and layers like a champ, working over light knits and long sleeved tees. The unstructured silhouette assures comfort and slims problem areas. The effortless fit works with a range of physiques- no alterations necessary.

What it says: The grab-and-go piece is an uncomplicated option for those new to the blazer. Styled over chinos, denim or even slick sweats, the jacket elevates simple separates to date night status.

[Social] Sand Plaid DB Sport Coat

What it does: DB is a bolder look, best attempted by the seasoned jacket man. A peaked lapel highlights shoulders, while the shorter cut offers a more modern appeal. Wear socially with denim to attract the right kind of attention.

What it says: The double-breasted blazer has surpassed trend; this is hardly your grandfather’s boxy jacket. When worn right, the look is high impact and informs everyone of complete sartorial confidence.

[Business] Haight & Ashbury Paddington Sport Coat

What it does: Give the closetful of suits a much-needed break. Haight & Ash’s blazer is office smart and the ideal mixing piece; just add narrow trousers, pressed shirting and polished Oxfords.

What it says: The on-duty look distinctly channels gentleman of old. Borrowed from the best, think updated Sinatra, Bogart and Grant, the slimming cut and contrast details make this jacket contemporary.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-1-Formal

[Formal] Marco Nils Tweed Sport Coat

What it does: An easy fix for the vertically challenged, this event-ready sport coat hits the right spot to lengthen and delivers the sought-after angular shape- thanks to a sharp, peaked lapel.

What it says: The jacket lends formal attire an extra shot of confidence- the contrast collar and understated motif leave dull looks in the dust. This is new, new way to dress up; style with flawlessly cut separates for an evening look that outshines traditional suiting.
