Introducing the Zanerobe’s new fit, the Sharpshot chino
Zanerobe has always been on the forefront of streetwear and more importantly- chinos. Their Sureshot innovated the jogger trend by combining the best of both worlds: the comfort of a sweatpant with the look of a chino. Every man who’s tried on a pair ends up buying it.
Since then they’ve come out with new innovative pants and their latest fit is the Sharpshot Chino.
The Anatomy of the Sharpshot Chino
This style is more sophisticated than their predecessor but still as comfortable. It has a relaxed “carrot-fit” so it’s bigger in the thighs and starts to slim down from the knee. This makes it a great fit for both the slimmer guy and the athletic guy.
Not only is the fit superb, the comfort level is incomparable to any other pant. It has a slight drop crotch, who doesn’t like space in that area? It’s constructed of 98% cotton and 2% elastane stretch so there’s flexibility for optimal mobility.
How to Style the New Sharpshot Chino
Zanerobe also does us a favour and shows us how they’d style the chino. It’s got a clean look of a chino but still has enough swagger for the street. Completely ideal for layering so add on those tees, plaids and bombers.
With the new season comes a fresh collection from Zanerobe. If you are unfamiliar with the brand, we suggest that you come in and get introduced! Hailing from Australia, they specialize in revolutionary men’s streetwear and most importantly- the infamous jogger.
From the design team:
“Our design philosophy is simple, “design what you’re dying to wear”.
And we’re lucky to be living the dream. Designing without restriction, building a brand without
limitations and continually re-inventing ourselves to stay at the top of the game.”
Their new collection brings back old favourites, upgraded classics and new styles. New to Gotstyle is the Joe Blow Jean. It’s a classic 5-pocket construction featuring a tailored straight fit, a regular rise and no drop crotch. If you’ve enjoyed the construction and comfort of their joggers, you’ll like their take on the classic jean. Check out the fit guide below.
We’ve had our stylists pull together some looks so you can get an idea how to rock our new arrivals:

A great blazer is one of the most reliable and versatile pieces in any guy’s wardrobe. The classic way to wear a blazer is similar to a suit jacket — with a dress shirt and tie — but slightly less formal (the jacket isn’t a matching set with the suit pants). The differences between a blazer, sport coat, and suit jacket can be subtle, but they’re important to know.
Think you’ve got the classic blazer look covered? Great. Let’s step up your style to the next level, and explore 5 new looks to make the most of your awesome blazers that have been trapped in the confines of nine to five.
A double breasted blazer with dark denim is a modern power look any guy can pull off. The double breasted blazer is bold, so pair it with a solid colour dress shirt and let the blazer do the talking. Always keep the inside button and upper outside button fastened when standing. The only time you shouldn’t do up a button is if your blazer has multiple rows of buttons on the centre. If that’s the case, the same rule as with single breasted blazers applies — leave the bottom button undone.
Make sure that when wearing jeans with dress shoes the jeans are well tapered at the bottom, like on our model above. This will add height and slim down your look. If the front cuff of your jeans covers either of the monkstraps, it’s a sign the cuffs are too wide.
It may not be what you’re used to, but trust me, tapered lower legs are the way to avoid the dreaded “dad jean flare” you may not even realize you’ve been rocking. Once you wear one pair of properly tapered jeans and see the difference, you’ll never go back.
Throw your best dark blazer on over a designer tee, jeans, and military style boots to pull off a Justin Theroux inspired rocker look. Some tips to make sure you do it right:
Treat this as a casual look. A t-shirt with a blazer is cool. A t-shirt with a blazer when everyone else is wearing a suit? Not so cool.
Make sure your jeans are tapered right. Come on man, we already talked about this.
Let your boots develop some character.
Leave the blazer unbuttoned — with a t-shirt, better to keep it casual.
The t-shirt should hit just below your belt.
Avoid tight tees. When wearing a t-shirt with a blazer, try not to look too…slick. I like to gently tug on the collar of my shirts before wearing them under a blazer. A bit of a slouchy look is perfect. You’re not wearing this to a black tie event anyways, so it’s cool to grunge up this particular blazer look.
Here’s where a blazer can be useful as a transitional layering piece. Pair a casual, natural shoulder blazer like this one with a hoodie, joggers, and luxe sneakers for a super comfy outfit that will turn heads. In the right way.
Make sure the hoodie is thin. Not just any hoodie will work — too thick and it won’t layer nicely with a properly tailored blazer. As much as you love your college sweater, save it for the couch and opt for a sleeker fitting piece.
Seize this opportunity to wear your coolest, boldest sneakers (as long as they match what you’re wearing above the ankles). Joggers were made popular by sneakerheads because they show off a guy’s kicks — so go all out! An eye-catching pair like these ones from Sully Wong elevate the look from good to great.
Gotstyle Navy Wool Notch Lapel Blazer with Metal Buttons: $695, Selected Homme Charcoal Skinny Fit Stretch Chino: $95, Swims Navy Sport Loafer: $100, Taft No-Show Socks: $60 (4-pack)
This preppy spring/summer look works best with a navy blazer. Start with a polo, tucked or untucked (I prefer untucked, but either can work). Roll up your blazer sleeves a bit, even cuff your pants at the ankle if you feel like it. Slim fit chinos are a must, especially when your loafers tie in to the rest of the outfit as well as these ones do.
Pro tip: when going “sockless,” wear no-show socks. The exact same look is achieved, minus the blisters and lingering stink. You’re welcome.
This is a great transitional layering outfit for fall days when you don’t quiiite need a jacket yet, or the end of winter when you’ve ditched your parka for the season. The different textures (fuzzy flannel on the blazer, herringbone pattern pants) complement well and are way comfier than you’re used to for a look this sharp. The thin crew neck sweater under the blazer gives you some flexibility on whether to button or unbutton.
Last thing — show some cuff. Having that sweater peek out from both the chest and sleeves may not be something everyone notices, but those who do will appreciate the attention to detail.
