Four Fresh Takes on the Canadian Tuxedo
Few sartorial stylings are more difficult to execute than the Canadian tuxedo. The denim-on-denim look has endured a tumultuous history that has seen both flawless iterations as well as numerous undertakings we hope never to see repeated.

Far from evoking turn of the century sensibilities à la JT and Britney, our favourite style stars are rewriting the denim dress code in ways that bring new potential to the precarious ensemble. From suiting up in a tailored, more professional take on the casual costume to giving head-to-toe denim a downtown makeover, fashion girls are paying homage to the Canadian tuxedo with unrivalled double-denim dexterity.
