Heatwave Isn’t Gonna Stop This Double Denim Dame


So what if the thermostat in my car reads 101 degrees. That’s not stopping this die-hard denim fan from jumping on her hot bike and cruising around the mean streets of LA. Me, I’m sticking to tank tops, cotton lounge shorts and the AC that blast from my car. Or maybe chambray, which makes for the perfect hot weather Canadian Tuxedo.

Spotted: Canadian Tuxedo on Melrose


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.

Spotted: Canadian Tuxedo at a bus stop on Melrose

While walking my dog this morning, I saw this hipster rocking some denim on denim while waiting for a bus on Melrose, outside of John Fluevog Shoes in Los Angeles. He is seen here in tight Levi’s jeans, cuffs rolled in true hipster fashion. I would’ve asked him for a picture and interview, but I didn’t want to interrupt him enjoying his hand-rolled cigarette.

Me: In a Canadian Tuxedo in Columbus, Ohio

Here I am in my new James Jeans Twiggy denim leggings in coral I picked up at Rowe in Columbus, a California flag t-shirt from Essex Clothing on Melrose in LA, vintage Gap denim jacket in front of my friend Tony Murray’s place, T. Murray’s Bar and Kitchen in the Brewery District.

Spotted: Canadian Tuxedo at The Darkroom


We always catch some great double denim looks at The Darkroom on Melrose in Los Angeles. Last time, we caught super sexy bartender Ryan C. Marks draped in denim. Last night, it was Noel, who’s seen here on his bike in RRL jeans and a vintage Levi’s vest. Loving the look.

Double Denim at The Darkroom


I can always count on a decent Canadian Tuxedo showing at The Darkroom in Los Angeles. Last night, not one, but three bartenders were rocking the look. Sexy Ryan Marks – in Levi’s jeans and a vintage shirt – was kind enough to let me take his pic.

Sick Canadian Tux at Wasteland in Los Angeles


LOVE LOVE LOVE this look! While shopping on Melrose today I met Wasteland‘s Mia working the double denim in vintage Levi’s black denim cutoffs and oversized jacket with a The Cramps T-shirt and Jeffrey Campbell boots.

Double denim at Starbucks on Melrose


While grabbing coffee this morning, I spotted yet another incredible double denim ensemble. Here is Costume Designer Mark Avery looking dapper in a Levi’s Big E denim jacket and Jean Shop jeans.

Spotted: Canadian Tuxedo at Melrose Trading Post


The flea market may have been a little slow today, but the double denim was all over. We spotted NINE Canadian Tuxedos within five minutes of being there, including this gem comprised of a Ralph Lauren denim jacket with an MG logo and Albam jeans (yes, this guy was a Brit).

I saw this girl yesterday in line at M Café while at a healthy vegan lunch with my pal, photographer Noah Abrams.
