When it comes to accessorizing a man the requirements are quite simple. Make a product that will look good, complement our masculinity and our not so dainty lifestyle. As men, we like products that require little care yet are built to last. Which is why we’re really excited to announce that we are officially carrying Vitaly Design products at both our Bathurst and Distillery District locations!
Vitaly Design is a Canadian brand that offers impecable accessories for both men and women. These pieces are edgy and modern yet minimalist and architectural in appearance. It is these characteristics that make Vitaly Designs versatile and suitable for both you and your girlfriend. You can stack pieces together or remove elements to change functionality. Turn a necklace in to a ring or pair a rounded square ring with a wider 2 or 3 finger ring for a nice twist.
Here are our latest arrivals from Vitaly Design!
We are really excited to introduce to you Monte & Coe, the latest addition to our store and our accessories department. Monte & Coe is a 100% Canadian company founded by three young Torontonians Matt Montemurro, Andrew Coelho, and Ron Scarafile. These guys had one mission in mind, to develop an everyday product that stands apart. A line of bags that is suitable for any occasion and durable for any setting, all the while capturing an aesthetic balance, both appealing to men and women.
Each piece is hand-made in Toronto, in limited batch sizes, to ensure that it represents an unparalleled dedication to originality and versatility. Manufacturing and designs are focused around two simple raw materials: 100% vegetable tanned leather which is an ancient method that uses tannin, a plant extract, to improve durability and provide colour which is eco-friendly and 100% chemical free and wool felt that is sourced directly from a mill in Montemurlo, Italy.

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.
