The Canadian Tuxedo hasn’t had it easy, often categorized as tasteless, tacky and much too much (we blame Justin and Britney). But as lovers and defenders of denim everything, this past trip to Vancouver we took a page from Bing Crosby’s book (yes, that same book from which the Canadian Tuxedo came) and brought the whole denim-on-denim thing right back to where it started – O, Canada. Full. Circle. It felt only right…
Inspired by the denim prowess of the likes of Kanye West (because if Kanye says do it…), we put the Canadian Tuxedo to the summer test. Ok, so it’s possible we traded in a pair of jeans for cutoff shorts and maybe this shirt is actually chambray, but the spirit of the whole denim-on-denim thing is there. Right? After all, it is summer, what else were we supposed to do? We are all for sacrificing oneself for fashion to a degree, but when that degree has an eight in front of it we can’t help but cry ‘uncle.’ We think Bing would totally understand.
