We recently had the pleasure of being inducted into Amex Canada’s#ShopSmall campaign and are so excited to hear about their latest initiative. Amex Canada is looking for Toronto’s Neighbourhood Gem to help celebrate the importance of shopping small and shopping local.
Gotstyle has been dedicated to the Toronto landscape for over 8 years. So much so, that in 2004 we were one of the only men’s only boutiques in Canada. We saw a need within the men’s market and forged forward to meet that need. Our amazing relationship with our community allowed us to be the first to launch Skype shopping in Canada, expand with a brand new store in the Distillery District, and do fun things like the Naked Man campaign and now video game. Oh, did we mention that we’ve been working on launching an online store? Shhh…lets keep that one between us.
Bottom line is that none of this would’ve been possible if not for the incredible support of our community. And with any small business having and active community is so crucial to our success, which is why we really admire the #ShopSmall initiative by Amex Canada and hope that you will take a few mins to vote for your favorite Toronto Neighbourhood Gem.

Last night was an epic night for Gotstyle as we won Silver at the Shopper Innovation Awards for our innovative Naked Man campaign – second behind McDonalds! The campaign which launched in October of 2012 received over 10,000 views in the first week and now grosses well over 300,000 views. This project was a great collaborative effort between the Gotstyle team and our incredible creative agency Dorsey/Holme Experience
