Let Us Praise White Denim (Again)

It’s no secret that we are fans of white denim around here. Despite what you may have heard, it knows no season and can be worn all year round, especially springtime. Here’s one way I’ve worn my pair recently.

Is it a Canadian tuxedo if the denims are different colors? Technically, I suppose yes, but it’s not nearly as egregious. A denim shirt is a great casual alternative to a traditional blue button-up. Wear it for a spring happy hour, weekend brunch or date.

It’s important to get the most out of your Made to Measure investments. Choose a color and fabric that easily breaks up into separates, especially the blazer. My first made to measure suit is a lighter shade of blue that doesn’t work in all situations, but the jacket fits well when worn with white denim.


One of the best things about white denim is that there aren’t many shoes that it won’t pair with. If you’ve got a pair of shoes that you have trouble styling, try them on with some white denim. Chances are you’ll easily be able to make them work.


Thanks, as always, for reading. Lots of great things coming up.

    Yes! Can’t get enough of white denim. One month i’m wearing it with a camel coat, the next with a t shirt and loafers.

    Three cheers for white denim. Id definitely don’t wear them that often during colder months, but once the temps spike I’m all about white denim (in any form).

    I for one, definitely agree on what you have said ’bout denim shirts. Though at most I use chambray shirts during hot seasons.. I even tried pairing them up which looks good, in my opinion..

    I’d really love to see some examples of white denim pants paired with a blazer other than Navy blue. I know that’s a classic look and it’s what I go with most of the time with my white 501s. But I like to mix things up and I’d appreciate some inspiration.

    I love the way you paired white denim with blue hues. There’s something about the color white that makes other colors more vibrant. I wish I could see more men wearing white denim in my area. You look so dapper!

    Praise be to white denim! Definitely getting a good innings out of my white denim this Spring/Summer. Always a risk with coffee/mud flying about but I think I am adult enough to keep them clean now. Great look!
