We are just loving Uncle Karl’s recent obsession with denim. Karl Lagerfeld has once again created another stunning, slightly ironic take on the Canadian Tuxedo for Chanel. Keep it up, Karl. We’re picking up what you’re putting down.

Come on, Jimmy! Wearing a little denim on denim shouldn’t be a punishment. Last Friday, Jimmy Fallon was seen uncomfortably rocking a Canadian Tuxedo on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon after losing a turkey shuffleboard (wtf) match with Jay Leno. Although Jimmy referred to himself as a “tool,” I found his denim on denim attire a refreshing change from his usual stiff suit look. Even Announcer Steve Higgins likened him to the Marlboro Man, George Harrison (my favorite Beatle) and the Brawny man … um are those supposed to be insults?
Dear Jimmy, Thank you for rocking some dope denim looks …
This begs the question: Do they just call it a Tuxedo up there? Hmm. Regardless, this denim on denim creation made its way down the runway yesterday at Toronto Fashion Week. The husband and wife team of Joe and Kimberly Newport-Mimran of Pink Tartan were behind this dope tux. Me likey.
Wow. We spotted this incredible image of Dutch model Lara Stone featured in the New York Times’ T Magazine spread titled “Little Dutch Girl,” which follows the supermodel through her native Amsterdam. This picture caught our eye. The windmill, the pristine vintage VW Beatle, and of course, the stunning Ralph Lauren Collection denim jumpsuit.

Further evidence of Glenn Beck’s idiocy was seen last week when the conservative blowhard denounced Levi’s after seeing its latest “Come Forth” ad, which includes some rioting. In his blog, Beck stated, “It’s hard to believe that a company associated with America and working class values would use global revolutions and progressivism to sell their products, but that’s exactly what Levis is doing in their new commercials.”
…stay the course, Glenn.
Of course he’s turned in his Levi’s for Wranglers, which have not been sewn in the U.S. since 2005.
How great is this colorful and eco-friendly spin on the Canadian Tuxedo? M2F Brand Denims utilizes “green” dying methods with its custom Made2Fade Technology® Yarn and Clear H20 Colors® Dye Process. According to M2F, traditional jean manufacturing processes can be very harmful to the environment. “It’s not uncommon for dyers and finishing plants to pollute the water table by flushing dirty dyes and toxic chemicals.”
Don’t know, Kermit. Maybe it is easy being green.

Gearing up for a weekend in LA with my BFF Amy, I saw this Canadian Tuxedo at Pampered Hands (quite possibly my favorite place on earth). This chick hit all the trends. Denim on denim. Short-shorts. One shoulder jumper. Big bun on top of the head. Vintage shades. We’re guessing if she hadn’t been wearing flip flops for her pedi, she’d have been rocking some moccasin fringe ancle boots.
The Canadian Tuxedo should be Kanye West’s VMA uniform because here he is working it in double denim again. Kanye, seen here with Jay-Z wore Balmain jeans and an Ombre chambray shirt.
We’re loving this edgy video introducing Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren, which offers a new approach to denim and sportswear. The new line includes a lot of vintage details and weathered looks, highlighting the individualistic and eclectic nature of its brand and wearers.
