For the 20 years that I've been on this earth, I've heard the term "Canadian tuxedo" being tossed around on a regular basis, but I never knew where the term actually came from. As it turns out, the Canadian tuxedo originated back in 1951, when American singer Bing Crosby was refused entry into a Canadian hotel for wearing a denim top paired with denim bottoms. Now, the term is widely known and people love to rock the denim on denim 'fit! Aaron Rodgers' Canadian tuxedo is making major headlines all over the country.

If you're not familiar, Aaron Rodgers is a quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. The star player landed in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Wednesday, Aug. 21 for the team's upcoming preseason game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night. His outfit of choice? A Canadiana tuxedo, of course!

Most Candian tuxedos just consist of some denim jeans and a jacket, but the quarterback upped the ante by adding a denim shirt underneath his jacket for extra style points. Rodgers was also rocking some very questionable facial hair that would put Pornstache from Orange Is the New Black to absolute shame, although he seemed totally confident with it.

Rodgers isn't the only NFL player showing Canada some love during his visit β€” Oakland Raiders rookie A.J. Cole was spotted wearing some Winnipeg merchandise as well! Unfortunately for Cole, his shirt reads "Winnipeg, Alberta", not "Winnipeg, Manitoba", so he's been receiving some pretty serious roasts online. Maybe next time go for the denim on denim?

The preseason game between the Raiders and Packers is happening tonight at IG Field in Winnipeg. The game kicks off at 6 p.m. sharp, and if you happen to be in the city with no plans for the evening, tickets are still available at this link.
