Jeans are a very personal thing and for many serve as a second skin. Your jeans go where you go. They live your lifestyle. They get abrasions and scars. And they bleed. Just like you. The longer you wear them, the more character and attitude they get. Besides denim, only leather has the ability to age so beautifully which is why taking your time to find the right brand for you is so crucial. Fortunately, we’ve got Nudie Jeans. Founded in 1999, the guys at Nudie have devoted themselves to creating the perfect denim brand which is why we keep bringing them back year after year, season after season. The beauty about our collection is that it is truly designed to meet the vast needs and body types of our clients. From different colour ways to fits there’s always something to match you personal style.
Here’s our latest style editorial showcasing our latest Spring 2015 new arrivals from Nudie Jeans.
Since blue became the new black, guys just can’t seem to get enough. Whether you’re looking for your first or adding to your roster, blue suits are a no-brainer. They are easy to wear, pair and are practically good for almost any occasion. From office wear, to your best friends wedding, the blue suit is for men what a black dress is to women.
Here are some of our latest Spring/Summer arrivals from LAB, Tiger of Sweden and Tombolini.
The graphic tee- once a cornerstone of the rocker wardrobe, has been updated and redesigned for the modern man. These tees are less about emblazoned brand logos and superheroes, and more inclined to speak to cultural and geopolitical influences. Look for subtlety within the graphics, rather than a predictable statement. Google some of these captions to see what comes up- you just might learn something new.
If we had a penny for every time a man told us he is either “too young, too old, too tall or too small etc. etc. etc.” to rock a particular style or trend, then there would be ten Gotstyles. The truth of the matter is, age has nothing to do with it, instead personality and attitude are the deciding factors in adopting a trend- and making it your own. The key to embracing a specific style or article of clothing is understanding how it works for you. Shorts are a first-rate example; styling them in your 20s often differs from how 50 year olds choose to wear them.
In this GS how-to, we showcase our wide selection of summer shorts and how to pull them off at any age. Clean and classic or super fashion-forward, there is definitely a pair for everyone.
Fresh off the press, Owner Melissa Austria sits down with Jennifer Valentyne (host of Breakfast Television) to talk about key summer trends/essentials every guy should know, whether he’s dressing for the office, date-night or a casual summer afternoon. Being a born-and-bread Canadian company the episode also highlights some of the amazing Canadian brands that we’re proud to carry at Gotstyle like, LD West holsters, Baffi Collections wooden pocket squares, Hook and Furl lapel pins, Stolen Riches laces and Monte & Coe duffle bags. Press play to see the full episode.
One of summer’s most lasting trends can also be impossibly difficult to pull off. The all-white look is tricky (almost as ambitious as the double-breasted blazer), yet done well is a sartorial statement like no other, reading as confident and sleek. Done wrong, and the shame shall haunt you for life- even after years of impeccable attire.
When aspiring to wear the milky hue, follow our simple rules and count the following editorial as a guide. White is a cool, summery shade and should always look effortless. Fit is crucial so slim and well-cut pieces are essential- too roomy equals disheveled (and not in the good way). Don’t over think it, keep it minimal, and refuse to shy away from adding punches of contrast for personality. Lastly, we cannot overestimate the importance of (fabric friendly) bleach. White should always be white.
