If you’ve been watching Ray Ban lately, you’ve noticed a slew of new materials being used on their always classic frames (I just picked up the best tortoise aviators, kind of obsessed). So it’s no surprise to see even edgier ones being put out as part of their somewhat bizarre Order Of Never Hide secret society campaign, in which fans must take challenges to elevate their position on the Order grid.
Sound confusing? It’s not. And it’s likely a good way to waste some time on a Friday afternoon at the office. Each challenge is represented by a pair of shades: Blend Like Camo, Smooth As Velvet, Tough As Leather, Tough As Titanium and Rugged As Denim. Sadly for me, but happily for my wallet, the denim is the only one yet to be released. We’re still waiting on the release date, but will announce when we get it.
We hope this blog has proved the Canadian Tuxedo is indeed a stylish look, one that’s timeless and here to stay. So if you’re sold, but still not sure how to make denim-on-denim work, ELLE is here to save the day. Click here to see ELLE’s tips on styling a Canadian Tuxedo.
makes me happy … (sorry. had to.)
Before the opening band for Dean Wareham went on at the Roxy last Thursday night, I spotted this Canadian Tux in the crowd. The gent, who preferred to remain nameless, was rocking Wrangler jeans (don’t see those enough) and a Levi’s jacket, complete with a perfectly styled mullet, for which this photo does not do justice.
And if Dean comes to a town near you, do yourself a favor and check him out.
I get so wrapped up in Joanna Stayton’s glitz and glam that I sometimes forget about Annie Proffitt’s more down-to-earth style, including this triple-denim Canadian Tuxedo. And of the many Kurt Russell rocks throughout the movie, this sleeveless number is my fave.
p.s. Dean sleeps in his jeans.
After day five of a 14-day cleanse, I was desperate to go out. So much so, I agreed to go to Barney’s Beanery stone cold sober. Amid the colorful cast of regulars, was Grytt Young from Australia, who refused to be photoed for my blog unless my friend, Kate Schintzius, posed with him. Kate’s gorgeous in grey in a C&C California shirt, Floggs (Clogs with a flip flop sole? Yes, please.) and Lucky Brand jeans – head-to-toe Cali brands. Me likey. Seems like yesterday I was in the LA Style Shoot with Lucky for Hellin Kay’s Champagne and Heels.
I digress …
Saving the best for last: the Canadian Tuxedo. Our new Aussie friend was rocking a denim shirt and waxed jeans form H&M (“I’m a simple guy,” he drunkly explained.), and a tank from Balinese line Zuttion.
The weather cooled off just in time for double denim at the revamped Sunset Strip Market. This season they’re offering tastings from craft breweries and wineries – $16 buys you a tasting glass and set of five drink tickets. At the wine table I saw this Canadian Tuxedo: Levi’s jeans, Earnest Sewn shirt Nike Air Max kicks.
The new market is definitely more food truck-heavy, but you can still pick up some fruits and veggies and holy shit the best thing ever: S’mores from BondBar.
