Women have their purses, shoes, scarves and a million other chachkies that they carry, men on the other hand tend to be a little more refined and carefully curate what they’ll need based on the occasion. Whether you’re sitting pool side, hitting the gym, going on vacation or just heading in to work, each scenario requires a distinct set of accessories that help complete your look. From briefcases to coloured shoe laces, here’s your guide to some key men’s accessories you’ll need this summer, no matter where you’re going.
With the growing popularity of Without Prejudice in our stores, we only thought it fitting to bring in the man himself, Mr. Jason Gerrard, CEO of Without Prejudice to give you a little history on the brand and why it’s one of our fan favourites. As Jason mentions in the video, some of the best things about WP are things you can’t see like the half-canvas lining and sweat guards. It’s pretty much all the “stuff” hiding between the garment you see and it’s colourful lining. However, if what you can see is indication of the level of detail and craftsmanship they offer then you can be quite confident that you’re truly getting a quality product at an unbeatable price.
WP offers that tailored slim-straight look ideal for that athletic guy who’s got that fuller chest, arm and legs. It’s also the only suit brand we carry that offers a Drop 8, which essentially refers to the jacket to pant ratio. Most brands offer a drop 6 or 7 which means that if you’re a 42 jacket you’ll get a 35/36 pant. With a Drop 8 you’d get a 42 jacket with a 34′ pant, giving you that perfect inverted “V” look.

Guys for the most part are conditioned to be very pragmatic shoppers. They look for things that they obviously need, but also things that give them the most amount of “versatility”. Though we are strong believers in having a diverse wardrobe, segmented for different occasions, we completely understand the need for versatility in ones closet. One of the most common questions we receive when wardrobing men in suits is, “Can these pieces be worn separately?”
To answer that very question we’ve put together this great style guide to demonstrate how you can wear one suit four ways.
Footwear is ultra directional- the foundation of attire from the black-tie formal to the cabin casual. Cue Gotstyle’s Spring Shoe Roundup- from the car to the boat shoe, we’ve gathered the latest and greatest pairs for the balmy days ahead.
We’ve replaced snow with rain and while we’re glad for the deep thaw, one can be hard pressed to image wearing anything in this weather that won’t get ruined. While people write books upon books, style guides upon style guides on what you can wear for Summer, Fall & Winter, few pay attention to the dampening nature of Spring. It is precisely for this reason that we tapped our stylists to put together some of their favourite outfits that will allow you to beat the rain, in style.
