We've all heard of the Canadian tuxedo, so it should have been no surprise to anyone that as the Canadian Olympic team entered the closing ceremony, they did so clad in denim -- and a bevy of patches showing their Canadian pride.
"The Closing Ceremony Jean Jacket encompasses everything we were trying to embody when designing the collection," said Suzanne Timmins, SVP and Fashion Director, Hudson's Bay Company in a press release. "It brings together elements of unity, pride and longevity -- making it the perfect choice for our athletes to wear at the Closing Ceremony tonight."
And that's all well and good, but it seems Timmins' sentiments weren't shared by all:
And then Storeshaw changed her mind in a matter of minutes ("Oh Gawd I think the jean jackets are growing on me. Such is the power of denim over Canadians. We're powerless"), perhaps revealing the inherently nice character our country is so known for -- we just want to look good on the world stage, after all!
The jackets were worn with tailored khaki pants, white running shoes and the generally celebrated Maple Leaf t-shirts and sweatshirts worn throughout the Games.
