The Farah brand was born in the 1920s but it was not until the 1970s in the UK that it reached the cult status it holds today.
The original Farah slack made from hopsack canvas became an immediate hit with the youth of britain: slim cut, sharply tailored and featuring stain resistant technology, the trouser was unlike anything available at the time.
Momentum for the brand grew and in the 1980s Farah became a must have label amongst fashion savvy hipsters, including the mods, skins, sticksmen and rocker-billys. Seen on the balconies at gigs across the UK music scene, each group interpreted the brand within their own style, building key farah items into what became their definitive looks. The clothes came to represent a sense of elitism while generating respect for those who displayed the now famous “Farah F Tab”.
Today the Farah label still holds the heritage and vigour it stood for then. A whole new generation of men throughout the world are drawn to the brand’s history and inspired to rediscover the distinct look for themselves.
Not all items in the branding shots above are available at the store, but we did order a vast amount of pieces from their collection:
Blazers, shirts, knits, bags… you name it. Ted Baker is back to bring a bit of colour for spring.
In previous years, we’ve carried the American fit, built for larger frames. New for this season is the English fit: a much slimmer cut. If you’re familiar with the Endurance series, one of their most popular series, you’ll love the fit.

New at Gotstyle: Desigual from Barcelona, Spain.
I brought this collection to the store because I love their fun, bold colors and crazy patchwork designs. Their philosophy is the same as ours – great fashions at an affordable price point and they offer designs and patterns that you won’t see anywhere. I love their fine gauge sweaters that are perfect for layering now, and pants and shorts that are a great change of pace to jeans and chinos. The brand is sold in over 60 countries around the world and is one of the most recognized brands in Spain (and slowly though out Europe!).
Sweaters $135 – $150
Pants $150 – $175
Shorts $95 – $150
