At Gotstyle we pride ourselves on picking brands we know will bring great value to our customers. It’s less about how popular a brand is and more about quality, craftsmanship and whether or not it serves a need for our clients. With so many outerwear brands out there it can be challenging to decipher the hype from the value, which is why we want to take this opportunity to educate you on the brand: G-Lab.

Toronto weather is unpredictable on the best of days, from rain to snow, hail to storm, being prepared is a necessity and having a coat that can withstand it all is a must-have. Enter G-Lab, your waterproof, windproof, breathable “wear it right now” piece. When you don’t want to look like a down-filled snowman, and it’s raining and snowing and -1. Here’s the low-down on what goes into a G-Lab coat.

Brandon below is wearing the Globe style.

G-Lab Cosmo

The Cosmo makes any business deal a true success. A gentle laid-back style with slim silhouette represents smartness and understatement for office use, while the 3-layer fabric and integrated thermo jacket guarantee top-notch functionality. The seam lines, pockets and high collar add a touch of outdoor-inspired nonchalance. The Cosmo looks as great with vintage jeans and boots as it does with suit and tie.

It comes in two styles: the Tech Touch which is shorter and the Sleek Touch which is smoother and longer in length.

Top coats and Trench coats are a great transitional item and make for great investments. Their construction, durability and functionality make them one of the most versatile pieces in any mans closet. Though originally designed for the British & French forces in WWI, newer innovations and designed over the past decade have made the these coats an enduring go-to garment among “civilians” during any transitional season. Their slimmer, modern cuts give them that beloved sartorial touch, while the options in textiles allow the wearer to easily dress it up or down to match their personal style.


What’s New: Nobis Outerwear

November 15, 2011

We’ve already posted about Nobis outerwear before, but since it’s prime time for jacket buying, we’ll refresh your memory.

Nobis coats are made with 100% Canadian down and a water repellant outer layer. My favourite feature is the coyote fur-trimmed hood (faux fur also available) framed with wire, totally eliminating those annoying times where your hood gets blown down off your head.
Other great features include: sealed seams (so no rain or snow is getting in), pit-zip vents (to let some air through if you’re getting hot), fleece lined pockets (it’s the little details that count), wind flap with magnetic closure (good if you have to get in and out of your coat quick), ribbed cuffs with thumb opening (so the wind can’t blow up your sleeve).

Nobody wants to look like they’ve come right off of the Blue Mountain slopes, or suffer through freezing in a wool jacket, everyone should have a down filled parka (we do live in Canada). But not a Michelin man one.

There’s three models in store, the Cartel bomber pictured on the left $649, the parka underneath $895, and the Kato pea coat $825. All jackets are lined with a down-proof lining that allows breathability, but stops the down from poking through.

For all the downtown guys with a closet full of suits (from Gotstyle of course), the Nobis pea coat is perfect for wearing over suits and being warm while still looking stylish.
