Gotstyle recently teamed up with Robert Cribb and The Toronto Star to host Mankind’s inaugural man-makeover contest. The contest required people to write to us expressing why they or in many cases their spouses needed a dramatic head-to-toe makeover. After pouring through 100’s of letters both Founder Melissa Austria and Robert Cribb found their lucky winner, Daniel Rocchi.

Daniel, a father of two and a drama teach openly revealed to us that he’s a living, breathing Value Village mannequin. Nearly every piece of apparel attached to his body on the day we spoke could be traced back to the shelves and racks of the Villages. Now there’s nothing wrong with Value Village as a haberdasher. But as the winner of Mankind’s inaugural man makeover contest proves, real money spent on something fresh delivers a lift to male confidence and cool.

This is where we stepped in to give Daniel a $1000 Gotstyle makeover- the end result? Press play below and then click here to read the full story behind Daniels transformation.

The 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am games are fast approaching and as the host city we’re looking forward to welcoming the world to our multicultural melting pot also known as Toronto. This year marks so many great milestones both for this city, and the Gotstyle brand. In the last 10 years Toronto has established itself as one of the best cities in the world, in those same 10 years Torontonians have helped propel us to grow to become one of the best menswear retailers in North America. To help celebrate this amazing year and everything that makes this city so incredible we brought you our Gotstyle Loves Toronto T-Shirt Design Contest. The grand prize- to have your design printed on Gotstyle t-shirts, a $1000 cash prize, and a feature on the Gotstyle website.

After receiving over 300 submissions we’ve finally riddled it down to one talent that truly captured the essence of our brand and the sentiment behind the “Gotstyle Loves Toronto” concept. We’re excited to announce that that winner of our Gotstyle Loves Toronto t-shirt design contest is none other than Eno a 27 years old freelance designer who submitted this amazing design. 

Note t-shirts will be available early July, 2015.
