The Real Definition of Canadian Tuxedo!


I’m sure there are plenty of people out there in this world that STILL have no idea what the hell a Canadian Tuxedo is!  WELL… Now you can and will find out for yourselves, just what exactly this horrendous outfit is and looks like!


As any true ‘Denim Dan’ knows, a ‘classic’ Canadian Tuxedo consists of a matching denim shirt and jeans accompanied by a denim jacket of the same maker (Faded Glory, Levi’s) and of the same shade. To be a true ‘Canadian’ the shades of denim must be identical as though both top and bottom were cut from the same roll at the factory. Variations include ‘The Festival’ which calls for an untucked denim shirt usually with the sleeves ripped off for maximum Tasmanian Devil tattoo exposure. There is, of course, ‘The New Mexican Gentleman’ which relies heavily on starched denim jeans (dark blue), a giant leather or armadillo skin belt (with buckle), a light denim starched shirt, and a bolo tie usually  ornamented with some sort of Turquoise scorpion or something. Many more exist as you well know. Experts agree that we may never fully understand or be able to accurately categorize this phenomenon known as the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’. Until that day we will all watch with a sense of awe and wonder as new and exciting variations stand on wobbly legs and begin their march into ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ legend.

We see many famous people attempting to pull of this unfashionable piece of work…

I mean, c’mon, look at that face! He looks embarrassed for himself!! He should be. 



Even Chuck can’t pull it off… He just gets made fun of his entire life!



Kanye is just a loser anyway, so anything he wears looks like crap.




It’s even WORSE looking when the regular ol’ folks try and pull off a Canadian Tuxedo.



REALLY?!?!?!  A mullet too?!
