Fashion rules are meant to be broken, as long as you know what you're doing. So if you want to pull off denim on denim -- commonly known as the dreaded Canadian tuxedo -- it's a feat that can be accomplished with aplomb. Just vary the the indigo shades and textures, and keep in mind you can also express your love of denim with accessories. You can find denim finishes on your iPhone case and even a pair of sunglasses. It's all here in the latest edition of the Freshness Grid.

Knickerbocker MFG 49er Jacket
Crafted from 12.75oz Cone selvedge denim, the jacket is inspired by classic chore coats of yore. The raw denim is guaranteed to age beautifully with wear.  

Topo Designs Western Shirt
Made in the USA, this is Topo Designs' take on the iconic western shirt, complete with contrast stitching and pearl snaps. Best of all, it has a trim fit for a contemporary look.  

Kangol Denim Mowbray Hat
Featuring a design inspired by selvedge jeans, the classic pork pie hat features contrast gold stitching and a striped knit sweatband. The indigo finish gives each hat a unique appearance.

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Denim
Take a close look: these Wayfarers don't employ a faux denim finish. They're crafted from 100% genuine denim, complemented with original rivets for a rugged aesthetic.

Rogue Territory x Archival Roll Top Denim Backpack
This classically styled backpack has a 16.75oz slub Japanese selvedge denim shell, reinforced with heavy-weight tan American waxed twill on the back and bottom. Genuine Horween leather straps adds to the premium look and feel.

Casio G-Shock GA-110DC-2AJF
Originally previewed here, this G-Shock GA-110DC features a light-blue indigo finish to complement a number of technical benefits. They include speed measurement s, a 1/1000-second stopwatch and ISO764 class magnetic resistance.

Decoded Denim Case Wallet
Crafted with a mix of leather and Japanese denim, the case delivers protection for your iPhone while also offering various pockets for your business cards and credit cards. Magnetic enclosure seals the deal.  

3x1 M4 XX46
Using Japanese selvedge denim, these feature a classic low-rise cut. A khaki-colored weft yarn means the fabric will fade to a subtle sandy color over time.

visvim Skagway Slip-On
A simple silhouette belies the premium details, including premium UK cowhide suede paired with genuine indigo denim on the upper. Leather lining is good for comfort and breathability, while an EVA Phylon midsole delivers enhanced cushioning.
