I caught up with this super stylish Canadian Tuxedo – G-Star Raw jacket and waxed denim jeans – on Melrose in Los Angeles yesterday. And while I was blown away by the waxed denim (slight obsession), I was even more thrilled to find out the model was none other than Thomas Curran, director of food & beverage at Umami Restaurant Group. And anyone who knows me, knows I’m mildly obsessed with their social media efforts and that I’d probably ditch denim for a Hatch Burger. Hell, I’ll even head to the Valley for a Show Dog.
Speaking of … have to share this graphic Jesse Bulger, NYC designer/fellow hot dog enthusiast, made me in celebration of the Burbank location opening earlier this year.
We came across this unbelievably amaze video from California duo/real-life couple Pomplamoose. This mashup of my faves – Royals by Lorde, California Love by 2Pac and Loser by Beck. This video was shot in one take with a single projector. Oh, and Nataly Dawn is rocking a pretty nice Canadian Tux. Enjoy!
Here’s my adorable neighbor/father of my dog’s girlfriend/actor Calvin Radsick in a Canadian Tuxedo. My fellow Ohioan is seen above in Zara jeans and a Forever 21 top.
Here is Zach Paul looking ever so handsome in his Levi’s Canadian Tux as we leave Soho House for more shenanigans on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood last Friday. Is there anything Levi’s can’t do? Worship.
Last night I managed to sneak a photo of songwriter and producer Michael Linney at Soho House West Hollywood. Mr. Linney is looking dapper in his all-denim ensemble made up of Zara jeans and H&M button down.
Proof yet again that the Canadian Tuxedo is indeed fashionable. Here is Marc Jacobs associate Kevan Pike rocking some stylish double denim – all Marc by Marc Jacobs – at the Marc Jacobs Headquarters in NYC. We’re digging the Zissou-esque look that beanie seems to add (could be a stretch … we’re a bit Wes Anderson-obsessed over here).
While I was at the Cooper Design Space in DTLA today, I made sure to pop in and check out the AG Jeans Sample Sale and boy was I pleased.
You can grab new denim ($60-$80, usually $200+) and apparel for men and women – think $40 silk blend blouses and denim shirts. The sale is running today and tomorrow. And – bonus – they accept credit cards!
It also looks like Levi’s was setting up for their own sample sale, so head over tomorrow and you’re sure to spiff up your Canadian Tux for some deals you really can’t beat.
We couldn’t agree more. StyleCaster posted a story yesterday called “50 Fashion Rules to Break Right Now” and it came as little surprised to see denim-on-denim make the list. Of course, we’ve been promoting the look for years and think, when done right, the Canadian Tuxedo is one of the best looks around. StyleCaster advises, “the easiest trick to rocking double denim without looking like you got lost on the way to the cattle ranch: Pair pieces of varying washes together, such as a light denim shirt with dark denim jeans, or a dark denim jacket with a light-wash pair of denim shorts.”

I spotted this lovely lady in a fall Canadian Tuxedo – Gap denim shirt and Citizens of Humanity mustard jeans – on Sunday at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market.
Talk about timing! Just minutes after doing a mini photo shoot for my Wall Street Journal front page story with my friend and neighbor, actress/model Sandra Lerga, I ran into actor Ross Anderson who was also rocking a sick Canadian Tuxedo. Pictured above is Ross in Nudie jeans and a TOPMAN jacket.
