No matter if you’re old or young, single or married, a man should always aim to look his best and the easiest way of doing that is by putting on a sport coat. As we’ve identified time and time again sport coats are one of the most versatile pieces in a mans wardrobe and have the ability to instantly upgrade your look. They are great at hiding your vices, making you look tall and lean and as Melissa would say “it’s always good to look better for your better half”.
We get it, you’re not new to the style game. You’ve got the jersey blazer and have been rocking the jogger look since last year. So what’s new for you this Spring 2015? Press play and see Melissa’s latest style video where she breaks down the top three 2015 Spring Trends for the modern man.

Spring cleaning is something most people talk about but few actually take the time to implement. We can’t stress enough how important “Spring Cleaning” is for the health of your wardrobe and your personal style. Here’s Melissa, Founder of Gotstyle with another style tips video to walk you through some key tips and tricks every guys should know when endeavouring to do a closet clean up.
With the world of menswear changing and evolving on the daily, it is understandable that many guys find it challenging to keep up with all the latest trends and styles. Fortunately, as with most things in menswear there are some basic ground rules that never quite change. This is especially true in the world of mens suiting. Granted today we see more patterns and textures making their way into the market, however the rules that govern them still remain the same. In this latest How To style video, Melissa helps you aim to be the Best Dressed guy in your office with these easy tips on how to match a shirt, tie and suit.
The last thing you want when you’re in your 30’s or 40’s is to look like you’re desperately trying to be in your 20’s. Dressing age appropriate is as important for men as it is for women- which is why in this How To Dress video Melissa (Founder of Gotstyle) offers some simple style tips and tricks that will allow you to update your wardrobe without dating it.
Sell yourself, your brand, your product. First impressions can make or break big numbers so dump those boxy, ill-fitting suits and come in for contemporary looks that inspire confidence. We can fit any size, body type or proportion problem, we’ve got the in fabrics (windowpane checks for all), and warmer textiles for the upcoming freeze (summer suits are lame in winter). Melissa Austria discusses the finer points of modern suiting and what to wear to work now.
