The Canadian Tuxedo is a trend that just keeps giving—note: I’m not actually wearing a denim on denim ensemble but rather jeans and a light blue cotton tank top; the effect, however, is still the same.I stole away from New York this past weekend for some much needed R&R at my cousin Monica Rodger’s oasis in Rhode Island. I visited my long-time beau, Jay Gatsby, in Newport, did my usual thrift store shopping, and spent oodles and oodles of time catching up with my dear cousin, the woman empowering women with The Revelation Project. For my last day in the Ocean State, we strolled around town and took “a drive” on Ocean Drive en route to the train station.
Dressed in my DIY Daisy Dukes—appropriate attire for Doris Dukes’ estate, no?—and a Short(s) Version of The Canadian Tuxedo, I took in coastal views and jammed to tunes by Bruno Mars, obviously. The jeans are vintage Bill Blass that I found at a thrift store, aka Goodwill, in Pennsylvania for about $5. I chopped off the legs, gave them a wash and a roll and that’s it: DIY Daisy’s in a nutshell.

Isoude is rich with history. Designer Katie Brierly works with artisans who remember what it was like when New England was once the center of garment production. Her pattern maker, for example, refers to herself as “The Last of the Mohicans” because of the dwindling number of garment artisans in the area. Another man, who cuts Isoude’s fabrics, came out of retirement so he could show his son the “finer aspects of cutting silk.”

The designs mirror the high quality clothing of the past, too. They’re classic, investment pieces that are pieces of art in their own right.
