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.
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.
This biker and his pal joined my dog and me in the shade one hot, sunny day in Los Angeles. He’s seen here keeping it real in Levi’s jeans and top, while showing a softer side, bonding with my Yorkie, Rocco.
If this dude found my recycling, he’s going to be able to afford a lot more denim.
An extremely busy few weeks has gotten me all sorts of backed up on blogging, but I have a lot of great stuff in the queue coming your way, starting with this photo of Chris Lakey, vice president of film and TV at Kobalt Music Publishing, who I met at Levi’s Haus a few weeks back. Chris is representing in some Levi’s jeans and a denim jacket by Ralph Lauren.
Levi’s own Joni Kilmurry looking as adorable as ever head-to-toe in Levi’s at Levi’s Haus right before Volcano Choir performed on Monday night. Related: How do we get a job at Levi’s? Shop Levi’s looks —>>> here.
Because what else are you going to wear to a Levi’s party? Last night, outside of the celebrity-studded Levi’s Haus in West Hollywood, I met Jeremy Gabriel head-toe in, what else? Acne Studios. While I love this denim-on-denim ensemble, I cannot take my eyes off of those shoes. Almost amazing as Acne’s new space in Downtown LA.
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.
