Call us biased but when you have Lennox Lewis lead a pack of 23 awesome celebrities down your runway during Toronto Men’s Fashion Week there’s no contest that your show just shut it down. That was the scene last week when we teamed up with TOM* to sponsor and style their annual celebrity Men’s Fashion4Hope charity runway show.

Hosted at College park the event was a sold out success- and quite possibly one of the most entertaining shows of the week. Not shocking when you consider that you have a collective of athletes, musicians, actors, youtube superstars and a few politicians strutting their stuff. Perhaps the only thing more interesting than the characters in the show was the fact that each celebrity was outfitted in our latest Fall/Winter styles. That may not seem to impressive at first until of course you take note of the fact that we dressed everyone off-the-rack, ranging From 6’4 Lennox Lewis down to 5’5 Senator Tobias Enverga- there were no special orders or made-to-measure, absolutely everything featured on the runway was off-the-rack! Scroll down to see all the outfits.

Special thanks to our resident stylists Shaeleigh Afton & Sharad Mohan for styling our celebrities.

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.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Social

[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.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Business

[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.

Well, here’s your exclusive behind the scenes look from our latest story for season dubbed the 5 Must Have Jackets For Fall. Outdoor shoots are always make for interesting stories and this one was no different. From random people coming up to Jerry (our sexy model) wondering if he was a celebrity, to us rushing shots so our ice cream wouldn’t melt all over the clothes- there was no shortage of epic moments as we took over the streets of Kensington market here in Toronto. The theme of our shoot, as the title (Must have Jackets For Fall) would suggest was to showcase some of our amazing new transitional outerwear jackets in a streetstyle inspired aesthetic. Focusing on 5 key styles, the sport-coat, bomber, puffer, technical and varsity jackets we endeavoured to create a style story that we hope resonates with our clients. Transitional outerwear is a key part of any mans wardrobe and we wanted to showcase our vast selection in a meaningful yet relevant manner. Whether you’re looking for something to layer with your suit or to make a run to the grocery story, there is a jacket that’s right for you.

Gotstyle’s Guide to Denim

Sasha Ferkul May 29, 2014

Denim is denim is denim. Or is it? The style pack has a long-standing, never-ending, die-hard fixation with the rugged, cotton twill textile. It rules the realm of cool- the constant search for perfect fit, fade and wash and actually finding it easily compares to diving for buried treasure- just more rewarding. Gotstyle’s Guide to Denim makes the challenge much less demanding.
