Gotengo – The Hyper-Personalized Menswear Store That Helps You Dress Better
We believe that shopping for clothing and looking your best should be easy, no matter your body type, your personal style (even if you don’t think you have one!) or preferences.
Dressing better should not have to be stressful.
Because of this, we believe the ideal menswear shopping experience should:
- Help you find exactly what you need, for the occasion you are looking for and not just have something pushed on you because that is what the store needs to sell.
- Help you work through the challenges that shopping for clothing presents by allowing you to easily understand if an item is right for you.
- Give you confidence that the brands and products offered are of the highest quality, and that you are getting value for your dollar.
And really, that philosophy drives the vision behind Gotengo.
We started with the technology …
To accomplish our goal of building the ideal menswear shopping experience, we built a proprietary, AI-powered store unlike any other that will actually Hyper-Personalize our store to YOU. It will help you know what items are best for you, and offer insightful analysis on every item you look at. It will even tell you when something probably isn’t right for you. Unlike other stores, we don’t think we should sell you something just to make a sale if we don’t think it will make you happy.
… then we found the ideal brands
We are constantly seeking out the best brands from around the world that offer a true level of excellence and craftsmanship. You won’t find fast fashion here; instead, you’ll find long lasting, high quality products from both renowned and upstart menswear brands. Each brand we work with brings something unique and valuable to the table that makes them worth owning.
Gotengo was originally founded by a team of experienced technologists who were dissatisfied with the state of menswear shopping and set out to do it better.
Our guiding principle was to make dressing better an easier process and saw endless opportunity to apply technology and Silicon Valley-inspired thinking to the problem of decoding fashion. After adding experts in retail and fashion to our founding team, we became confident that we could build a store that is better than the status quo and redefine how men shop for clothes.
While our team may have somewhat unorthodox roots for a menswear store, we embrace that, because we aren’t trying to be a typical menswear store!
- We are based in Toronto and currently sell across Canada and the USA. We plan to sell to other global destinations in the future. Sign up to our newsletter to find out when we expand to your country.
- We try our best to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We don’t include unnecessary paper in our shipments and prefer using recycled packaging whenenver we can. We also work with our partners to try to reduce the amount of transportation an item requires before reaching your hands. It might be small, but we think every little bit helps, and we are always looking for ways to make smart environmental choices in our day-to-day operations.
- We’ve found great support and backing from our local startup ecosystem, including MaRS, The Fashion Zone, Futurpreneur and Business Development Canada.
