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.
Gah! All that waiting online Friday for passes to Coachella 2015, reminded me I had spotted a few last month at Coachella 2014. I can’t imagine how I could’ve forgotten …
Larry (pictured above) braved the crowds with his broken leg/wheelchair in a Zara jacket and H&M Jorts.
And apparently I ran into Shaun Cruda who’s rocking a Levi’s jacket, H&M top and a Jesus piece (apparently I failed to note who made the shorts) in what looks like the Gobi Tent.
Can you say PARTY IN THE BACK? OK, so I’ve been somewhat uninspired with this blog and the Canadian Tuxedos I find around Los Angeles. That is until last night, when this magical display of denim appeared at the new Plan Check Kitchen + Bar on Fairfax. Meet Sean Cabezas, who’s seen above in Levi’s jeans, Sperry slip ons (not the denim ones?), an H&M button down, Zara hat and the pièce de résistance: Sean’s dad’s vintage bedazzled denim jacket with a pinned on patch he had made from his favorite film Eyes Wide Shut. Color me inspired.
So proud of my bestie, Bret Robins, for rocking his first ever Canadian Tuxedo at a Christmas party up in Napa last night. Bret is looking dapper as ever in a denim button down from Gap and Levi’s 511 jeans.
Sure I adore denim, but I also love me some Taco Bell. So much so that they invited me – and lots of other Los Angeles influencers – to an exclusive party celebrating the launch of the the new Cantina Double Steak Quesadilla. (Not as exclusive as the last one, but still pretty damn good._
I instantly noticed The Hobbyists‘ Peter Adrian – blogger, actor, model extraordinaire – in this sick Canadian Tux, Levi’s jacket, PAC Sun destroyed denim jeans and a Hanes t-shirt.
Walking home from Starbucks last Sunday, I spotted this lovely lady working the double denim. Pictured above is Julia in a denim top she picked up at Nordstrom, a Brandy Melville tee and jeans by Abercrombie & Fitch. You can catch Julia’s musings on her tumblr account here.
Just got back from an Oscar Viewing Party where I ran into my girl, Kristen Tischhauser, also rocking a Canadian Tuxedo. I was able to woo her into a photo with my mad mandolin skills. Kristen is seen on the left in Aquilina jeans, a Vena Cava jacket that I had to work hard not to steal, Levi’s flannel shirt and Rag & Bone boots. I’m jamming away in 7 For All Mankind jeans, vintage Gap jacket, Zara top and Marni Mary Jane’s. A big thanks to Seth Iliff for hosting.
Just minutes before entering a place more bizarre than that bar in Star Wars, the set of Let’s Make A Deal (don’t ask), I quickly spotted the only other Canadian Tux through a sea of middle-aged lunatics dressed as babies, clowns and jail birds. To my left is musician Cody Digerolamo head to toe in Levi’s. I’m in 7 For All Mankind jeggings, an Arnold Zimberg shirt, Stetson hat and Wet Western.
Seriously, kids. Don’t do drugs: just go on this show. It’s much better.
UPDATE: I did not make a deal.
Last weekend Blake Shelton donned the double denim when he and Miranda Lambert performed onstage during the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, Calif. Looks like thinks cooled down since last weekend’s Coachella Music Festival … way too hot for that look.
Just before Swedish DJ Sebastian Ingrosso brought down the house at Coachella, I spotted Rachel O’Reilly braving the Sahara Tent heat in a Canadian Tuxedo. Rachel is seen here rocking a denim Trouvé top and new Gap denim cutoffs, which she said she absolutely loves!
