There’s nothing like a good toy store to fill one with holiday cheer, even if your definition’s shifted more toward luxury car dealerships and art galleries since you were a kid. Gotstyle is no different — just call it the Duncan’s Toy Chest of menswear. We’ve pored over its online offerings and zeroed in on the best new gear you’ll need to survive another Canadian winter in style.

3. The Simple Merino Blend V-Neck
It’s the simple things in life you end up wearing over and over — unlike those Darth Vader cufflinks that landed in your stocking last year. A merino wool blend v-neck sweater like this one from GotStyle’s in-house label is no exception. Layer it over a shirt and tie or throw it solo under a blazer.

5. Waterproof Boots
There’s always that one poor schmuck every winter: ankle deep in freezing slush after taking an unfortunate step off the curb. (Admit it, you laughed when he did.) Don’t be that guy.

6. A Versatile Top Coat
There seems to be an unwritten rule that winter coats ought to be black — it’s time to think more roasting chestnuts than coal in your stocking. Case in point: this double-breasted, mink-brown wool coat from Hardy Aimes. Uncommon details like peak lapels, bespoke buttons and a lively Prince of Wales check will help you stand out against winter’s monochromatic wasteland. Layered over a suit, it’s hardy enough for winter — ditch a few layers and it doubles as a transitional piece.
