15 Reasons Why Canadians Are The Best Dressed In The World

Posted: Updated:

Canadians have a lot to brag about: we produce some of the most amazing authors, actors and thinkers of the modern age but more importantly (at least to us style mavens), we also have the best dressed peeps in the world.

We realize that that's a bold claim—after all, we're not effortlessly chic like the French, creative like the Japanese or elegant like the Italians. But, despite this, Canucks are responsible for classic fashion trends that have been adopted around the world and have produced some of the most stylish celebrities on the scene today.

Not to toot our own horn but Canadians just plain kick butt when it comes to fashion.

Check out the 15 reasons why Canucks are the best dressed in the world:

1. We invented the Canadian tuxedo.
