Of all the wonderful things to come from Canada (including peanut butter, Keanu Reeves, and, you know, Nickelback), one of its greatest gifts to the universe is the Canadian tuxedo. Apparently, the term comes from Bing Crosby, who was once denied entry into a Canadian hotel for wearing blue jeans, which prompted Levi’s to create a denim tuxedo to qualify as formal wear. Personally, I thought it was invented by Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake (below), so I guess it depends on who you ask. Whatever the case may be, denim on top, denim on bottom is now known as the Canadian tux, though some call it the Texas tuxedo.
