The Canadian Tuxedo, a head-to-toe denim look, is one of the great gifts from the wonderful north, along with hockey and maple syrup. It originally served as functional work wear for the men of Canada's west, and now, like it or not, it can be seen on the streets of major cities the world over.
Since the days of Britney and Justin, the all-denim ensemble has made it's way back into the forefront of street style, albeit less glamourous now, than when it was worn by the famous couple. There are many ways to achieve this look without looking like a Canadian lumberjack (unless that's what you're going for) which is why it's such a good trend—it's versatile.

Typically, the rule is not to try and match the colours of a denim shirt and pants, however, if you want to wear a matching top and bottom combo, a more slim, tailored silhouette like the one photographed above in the far right, is probably the best way to go. Otherwise, the rules are fairly simple: casual or tailored, keep it monochromatic, and keep it denim!
