A prom suit can be the first investment piece for a young guy’s future.

We think the celebration of prom should be rewarded with a good suit! The growth spurts have passed and he’s ready to man up. This is one of the first times he’ll need a suit (that isn’t black) so look at it as an investment. So many guys rent, or wear suits that are passed down or very dated ultimately missing out on the opportunity to have a great suit ready in the closet for all of the occasions after graduation. Don’t let him go to prom in a dated suit. Buy right and he can wear it to his first interviews! Invest now and he will be able to wear it for job interviews, college interviews, and maybe even a few dates!

Pricing: Our half canvas suits start at $650 (multiple styles) floating chest piece/fused suits starting at $495 and full canvas (Eidos Napoli) ranging from $1400-1600. Wherever your price range is, we can suit him up!

We’re calling all Dads, Uncles, Grandpas and family friends… rather than lending him yours, bring him to Gotstyle. Get him his own quality (we recommend a half or full canvas) suit to wear for years to come. He’ll thank you – We promise!

What I Learned at Prom

April 22, 2016

Prom is one of the most memorable experiences kids have. Don’t let your cousin, brother, son wear your old suit. He can use this opportunity to get his first suit one that will be able to wear to his first interview.

There are a lot of options out there at different price points. Check out our prom guide and don’t forget we have a major contest that could pimp your entire prom.

“Don’t get too intoxicated that you don’t remember the night. Prom is a pretty important moment in your life and it’s a chance to party with all your high school friends.

Phil Campbell, Operations Assistant Manager

“Honestly just enjoy the night and have fun with it. This might be the last chance you have to create memories with people you’ve spent 4 years with.”

Shaeleigh Afton, Digital Marketing Manager

“I realized spending $700 on a dress that I will never wear again is stupid– but thanks Grandpa! Guys, with the right suit you can always wear your it again (like to an interview). And pictures are important so take as many as you can.”

Mallory Hood, Distillery Store Manager & Wedding Co-ordinator

“My date wore a double breasted jacket that I think he borrowed from his dad and smelled like rum the whole night. The teal dress is one of my biggest regrets in my life. The one thing I can say is if you invest in a good suit (and in a good friend) it will last you for years to come. 10 years later my date and I are still amazing friends.”

Linda Giang, Digital Marketing Co-ordinator

“A lot of us seem to regret our dresses. Mostly because we usually get ones we can’t wear again. But I think at the time, that’s what we’re into. I would suggest going to a boutique store that knows what’s classic yet in style and will give honest advice because we can’t really trust our taste at that age.”


Alex Danyer, Distillery Stylist & Assistant Womenwear Buyer

“Definitely get comfortable shoes.You’re standing so much from all the pictures that get taken and dancing all night. People thought I was drunk because I kept holding onto my date for support! Don’t make the same mistake.”


Nicole Goldstein, Bathurst Store Manager

“7 years later I can still fit into my prom dress. The more people you date in high school, the more proms you get to go to!”

Some prom trends never die..

1. The kid with the hat

2. Over-staged engagement style prom photos



3. The very strict deux-chromatic colour palate… match or be banished to the unpopular table


…wait is she wearing square toes?

4. The SATIN vest that comes in every colour

… Every, Fucking, Colour.

5. The white PIMP suit



6.  That bro squad who came with matching suits and shades

7. The “borrowed from my dad” look

8. The waiter style black dress shirt is the only option to match those flashy satin vests

9. The Bad-ass car pose picture

10. Aaaand last but not least the big daddy P.I.M.P cane.

No matter the generation Prom has always been one of those “rite of passage” kind of moments. We’ve all been through it and no matter our varied experiences and memories we can all agree that Prom night is one you’ll remember for the rest of your life. So why not take part in your son, brother, nephew, cousins prom by bringing them in to get fitted for a great suit. Much like how we’ve convinced most of you into buying suits vs renting, that same wisdom needs to be passed down to the younger generation. Helping them to purchase a suit will not only make them look like a star at their prom but give you bragging rights for at least a few years, or until they graduate from college or university.

To sweeten the pot we’ve got two great promotions for our young gents.

  1. Suit trade in: simply bring in an old suit and we’ll give you a $50 credit towards the purchase of your new suit.
