Not Just A Canadian Tuxedo: Denim Shirts Show You What They’re Made Of

I’m a proponent of the Canadian Tux — I’m rarely seen these days in anything other than all denim, often several pieces at once. Although this look is discouraged by some, it’s no bother to me. It has occurred to me that not all folks can commit to denim on Britney & Justin-at-the-VMAs levels. Sometimes, you want to wear a jean shirt and you don’t want to do that all-blue-everything dance. Luckily, the best thing about denim is versatility. Comfortable, durable and better with age, a denim shirt can be just as indispensable as your favourite pair of jeans.

Street Style

Real folks incorporatin’ denim shirts like it ain’t nothing at all… Whether with a loose trouser or a sweet skirt, chambray, engage!
