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!)
