Denim Downer: Canada Objects to the “Canadian Tuxedo”

Our friends in Canada have given us many things to be grateful for. Convenient travel to cities like Vancouver, Montreal, and Halifax. The longest-running television show in the history of mankind (CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada). Michael Bublé. Justin Bieber. And, the unique fashion phenomenon sometimes known as the “Canadian Tuxedo” – pairing denim with denim.

DENIM DOWNER: Canada Objects to the 'Canadian Tuxedo'

Well, now at least one Canadian is taking a stand against the denim-on-denim trend being distinctly Canadian, according to New York Magazine:

Blogger and tuxedo enthusiast Peter Marshall just discovered the phrase “Canadian Tuxedo” after stumbling upon the denim-on-denim tribute site, Canadiantux.com. And, man, is he miffed (for a mild-mannered Canadian, that’s like a Hulk-level of rage), reports the Wall Street Journal. Marshall… couldn’t believe that Americans would assign such an unsophisticated look to his countrymen.

Unsophisticated? We’re not so sure, Marshall – dark denim paired with chambray is pretty much our jam over here. #ruetuxedo

Pairing Boots with Denim

Reinventing fashion's favorite duo, in four ways

My love for boots and jeans? It spans seasons (and closets). With their ability to take outfits from rugged to western or work-ready to formal, every wardrobe should be equipped with a few favorite pairs of each. So, before you trade in this twosome for gladiator sandals and shorts, here are four ways to wear it now.
BLG-1179Studs & Stripes
Most who master roll-out-of-bed chic (you know: tousled hair, ripped jeans, off-the-shoulder tee) try really hard at it. The fabulous thing about these moto boots? They make it so you don’t have to. And jeans with a rad dye job are casual without looking messy. With a little less draping and a little more shampoo, I’m loving this look.

Cuff It Up
If you’re willing to forgo bum-hugging denim every once in a while, buy your jeans one size up for a relaxed look (and feel). Cuff them and add ankle boots or shooties (they’re a thing) and show a little skin.

Seek New Heights
Too soon for coral-toned denim? Not so. Okay, so these are cords, but all the more reason to wear them in winter. And with these outback-meets-urban-chic mid-calf platforms (loving the pull straps), this look is staple transition wear.

Bend the Rules
For some, the blue denim-on-denim is western-wardrobe amazingness. For others, it’s somewhat of a work in progress. Find an alternative to the ever-elusive Texas tuxedo with white or colored jeans and cowboy-beige boots. And before you even think it, let me be clear: it’s never too early (or late) to wear white.

Our Perfectly Paired: Women’s Boots & Denim Boutique opens Friday, January 11, at 11AM ET.
