Lets face it, not every guy is comfortable or confident enough to wear a vest, let alone one without a jacket. Some find it too formal while others often associate vests as the go-to uniform for waiters. With the help of our stylists we’re here to illustrate that not only can you wear a vest to any occasion but you can do so confidently, without looking like a waiter.
Try, for a second to erase all your preconceived notions about a vest and simply think of it as another layering piece. Much like a sweater or scarf, a vest is a great way to add dimension and character to any outfit. And with the growing number of styles and fabrics to choose from, there’s a lot you can do with it. Wether your exploring the city by day or out on the town at night, adding this simple piece into your arsenal could be all you need to one up your biggest style critics.
Blazing temperatures instinctively force us to gravitate towards textiles that are lightweight, breathable and relaxed; most people stray away from traditionally heavy garments like sport coats- completely counter intuitive attire in sweltering conditions.
Fortunately, menswear designers have become increasingly seasonally savvy, making it their mission to offer temperature sensitive styles to the everyday man. On offer, an array of new blazers that are unlined, unstructured, and feature informal details like functioning cuffs and patch pockets- making them an ideal choice for warmer weather. Check out our sample-selection of exemplary summer sport coats, hand picked by the GS stylists in an well-edited range of hues, fabrics, fit and price points. On or off-duty, looking sharp in scorching heat now requires no effort at all.

He ran into Gotstyle the other day and connected with our in-house stylist Daria who helped him pick up a couple of outfits to get him through a business trip to Moscow, where the temperature has already hit below 0 degrees. He’s got a couple of business meetings lined up and needed to look sharp, but not too stuffy at the same time.
Here’s a snap of what we put him in:

Ok, lets face it. The trees are slowly starting to change colour, CNE officially opens in a few days and we’ve already started to receiving some of our Fall merchandise. We hate to say it but Summer is almost over. But, recognizing the crazy Toronto weather we have we know that there are going to be a few (hopefully several) hot days still to come and realistically speaking probably several (hopefully few) cold days and evenings. Keeping that in mind we asked our Gotstyle stylist to pull together some great transitional looks that can keep you cool during the day and warm during the night.
