Not every father is as sartorially forward as they could be. Strong, devoted and hard-working to boot, dads think of their families first and their attire last. To celebrate Father’s Day and encourage the men who made us to look and feel like the stars of the show, GS staffers made over their ultra handsome papas. The resulting looks made for three very happy, dashing and dignified men- they adored every minute of it.

With the growing popularity of Without Prejudice in our stores, we only thought it fitting to bring in the man himself, Mr. Jason Gerrard, CEO of Without Prejudice to give you a little history on the brand and why it’s one of our fan favourites. As Jason mentions in the video, some of the best things about WP are things you can’t see like the half-canvas lining and sweat guards. It’s pretty much all the “stuff” hiding between the garment you see and it’s colourful lining. However, if what you can see is indication of the level of detail and craftsmanship they offer then you can be quite confident that you’re truly getting a quality product at an unbeatable price.
WP offers that tailored slim-straight look ideal for that athletic guy who’s got that fuller chest, arm and legs. It’s also the only suit brand we carry that offers a Drop 8, which essentially refers to the jacket to pant ratio. Most brands offer a drop 6 or 7 which means that if you’re a 42 jacket you’ll get a 35/36 pant. With a Drop 8 you’d get a 42 jacket with a 34′ pant, giving you that perfect inverted “V” look.

Without Prejudice is everything you’ve come to love about British sartorial style, without the arrogance. In fact, the two brother who founded the company did so out of frustration, they were tired of all the over-hyped, under-performing menswear lines that were big on swagger but offered mediocre quality. In retaliation to those houses the boys created a label that communicated individuality over mass appeal and avoided falling into the staid prejudices of label-worship. The end result, a great brand that offers a truly great fit. WP gives you that tailored slim-straight look ideal for that athletic guy who’s got that fuller chest, arm and legs. It’s also the only suit brand we carry that offers a Drop 8, which essentially refers to the jacket to pant ratio.
