The Evolution of Denim in Hip-Hop

Canadian tuxedos get West Coast love.

When: Late 1980s/Early '90s

Denim on top meets denim on the bottom; the look lovingly referred to as the "Canadian Tuxedo." People have worn this look for years; everyone from Elvis Presley in the 1960s to Bob Marley in the 1970s. Not to be left out, rappers, especially those on the West Coast, took to this trend. The late Eazy E loved this look as did Cuba Gooding Jr., who appeared in 'Boyz n the Hood' in a Canadian, er Compton Tuxedo.
