The metrosexual is dead. He took his snidely trimmed facial hair and extra-pointy shoe collection and drowned in a pool of cologne. The male fashion species left in his wake shares his love of looking dapper but shuns any pretty-boy tendencies in favour of handsome-man status. And he throws his whole look together at GotStyle .
The King West menswear loft's mannequins, dressed in dashing, mid-price labels like Junk deLuxe , Dubuc and Tiger of Sweden , stare down from their second-storey windows at the ad agencies and swanky nightclubs where the GotStyle guy works and plays.
That stylish fella does dressed-down dapper in a lavender Ringspun striped T ($90) or rumpled Jack Jones flak jacket ($150). He keeps time on a NFW stainless steel watch ($495) snd happily sinks into a leather club chair in front of the in-house spa's flat-screen TV for a "handjobber" manicure ($29).
GotStyle picks: Alessandrini 's brown plaid close-cut blazer ($650); slim, perforated leather J. Fold wallet for your back pocket ($65); Hair of the Dog mini facial ($29) that cures any physical signs of last night's debauchery.
Look for: The Dawg House nook, which aids thoughtful but forgetful lads by stocking gift-worthy, female-friendly buys including bold-coloured Apartment lady briefs ($95) and fig-scented Pacifica candles.
Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday 11 am to 7 pm, Thursday-Friday 11 am to 9 pm, Sunday noon to 5 pm.
