James Bond may have rocked grey suits pretty well, but we’d put money on these grey suits looking better than his. Be ready in seconds for weddings, work, social events, going out, or mixing up these pieces for nights out on the town with a 3piece grey suit – also known as the perfect suit for Summer.
Being a British brand, Ted Baker suits offer a slim fit and classic details; making them perfect for the office, going out at night, or formal events. Made with a lightweight wool, they’re the ideal summer weight for guys who need a classic black suit year round.
On the hottest day of the year, when you’re crammed into a streetcar, walking to lunch, and sweating on the commute to work, nobody really wants to be covered in clothes. But with the right summer suits, you’ll stay cool and collected. Lightweight wool, linen, and cotton suits are something every man needs to have in his wardrobe, even if a suit isn’t in your cards for every day.
We brought Strellson in last year and had an amazing first season with it. I love the modern fits that work with any body type (yes, that does include hockey butt guys) great price points, exclusive fabrics and well constructed garments.

We love their suits so much that we partnered with them to dress the TFC players and coaches!
In addition to their suits, we are also bringing in more of their dressier sportswear items that you’ll find in our Social department. This just in:
I decided to push the envelope with Tiger of Sweden this season, while we’ll always have their slim basic suits and tuxedos in stock, I wanted to show some of their high fashion items at their fashionable low prices (the Swedes and Danes are best at this).
This super short and trim mini houndstooth suit with wide peaked lapel is priced at $795. Slim fit dress shirt with fashion short collar (perfect for those skinny ties) $165, available in white, black, beige and light blue.
The canvas in a suit is the basis of suit tailoring; it’s the material (usually horse hair canvas) that is between the lining and the cloth of the jacket. Having a canvas jacket respects the true natural of the fabric, allowing it to breathe, move and fall better on the wearer. The more you wear a canvas suit, the more it molds to your body. A fused suit is more rigid and stiff and sits away from the body.
A canvas jacket also maintains its shape after time and repeated cleanings and doesn’t “bubble” like a fused suit does. A canvas jacket also helps to distribute stress points evenly on the suit, which helps to contain the wear and tear of the cloth – helping prolong the life of the suit. If you’re wearing a suit everyday, it’s worth it to pay more and get a suit that will last longer and look better on you.
Another quick note:
Cinque starts at a size 36 but we can do a special order for size 34 (46 and 44 European)
Paul Betenley now starts at size 36 (not 38 as mentioned in video)
Both LAB and TConcept start at size 34 (44 European)
All of us at Gotstyle are in love with texture this fall. From corduroy to velvet, leather to tweed, we can’t get enough of it! Here’s some of our favourite fall blazers that’ll add some dimension to your wardrobe.
Lets start with one of the most classic yet trendy looks for this season the tweed sportcoat. The warm neutral brown pallet matched with a modern fit bring in just the right amount of traditional, while keeping your wardrobe looking new and current. With a very fine tweed like this, you won’t end up feeling outdated or stuck in a time warp. Match this with a nice pair of black slacks and a crisp shirt and you have a great alternative to your staple all black suit.
If you’re not loving corduroy, but want a bit of texture in your wardrobe; this Strellson blazer priced at $650 is perfect. The very fine wales give it a slight texture, but nothing overpowering. The shape of this blazer is great too, by accentuating the shoulders it becomes a very flattering and versatile piece to have in your closet.
For something more casual, Johnny Love makes this great blazer priced at $495. The heavy tweed will keep you warm and is perfect for the guy who likes to keep his weekend look more polished than casual.
SUIT blazers: $350 each.
Every fall we see a lot of greens, reds, and earthy colours which brings us to these two amazing green blazers. Depending how casual your office dress code is, these jackets can easily be mixed into both your social and work wardrobes. And if your weekends involve a lot of lunches and outings to museums, galleries etc. then having tweed blazers like these will prove to be a great asset.
Gotstyle plaid blazer with suede elbow patches $595.
Now for the guy that has a blazer for every possible situation, we recommend going bold by playing with patterns and colours. For pattern the clear winner for this category is plaid. As for colour there are some great combination depending on your occasion. If you are looking for just the right balance we recommend more of a earth tone pallet like you see above. Another great way to step up this look is to get a blaze that has elbow patches. Lets face it you can never go wrong by adding a little British flare to your ensemble.
