Aaron Rodgers sports another Canadian tux look for the Packers event at Lambeau Field

Green Bay Packers fans have seen the look before, but does that mean they love it any less? We don’t think so.

As he is known for doing, quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared in style at the Welcome Back Packers Luncheon, making his entry into the Lambeau Field Atrium on Wednesday in a heavy ensemble on denim.

Athletic jeans, a denim jacket and a denim shirt – a yarn trio also known as a Canadian tuxedo – Rodgers, his teammates and coaches joined community members for the annual Greater Green Bay Chamber event with the Packers.

The rookie forwards also sported varying degrees of western wear, though none with the same level of “Yellowstone” Dutton Ranch commitment as Rodgers.

If an 85 degree day in late August seems a little hot for a full pair of jeans, then you’re obviously not as cool as Rodgers.

The outfit is like the one he wore in 2019, when the Packers arrived in Canada for a preseason game against the then-Oakland Raiders. It was so impeccable that it inspired Esquire style director Jonathan Evans to write an entire article about it, with the headline “All Hail Aaron Rodgers’ Glorious Canadian Tuxedo”.

Rodgers rocked a similar look in 2014, right down to the same tie, when he and then-quarterback Matt Flynn arrived as a head-to-toe denim threat at the Packers lunch.

But if Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, can be applauded for repeating outfits, why not the NFL MVP?

In 2018, he opted for a more formal, personalized version of the Canadian tuxedo, complete with cowboy hat. With the help of Levi’s and celebrity stylist Mark Avery, he appeared wearing a tuxedo jacket that was a replica of one made for Bing Crosby in 1951.

(Remember, Rodgers doesn’t do anything by halves. See also his homage to Nicolas Cage’s character in “Con Air” when he performed at Packers training camp last month.)

Rodgers’ fondness for the Canadian tuxedo elevates him to a fashion influencer. A story in April by Brad Lanphear for menswear guide He Spoke Style chronicles the history of the look and credits Rodgers with helping it come back in recent years.

“Aaron Rodgers, arguably the greatest quarterback of his generation, made multiple public appearances in head-to-toe denim during the 2018 and 2019 NFL seasons. These may have appeared as satirical outfits to some football fans, but the attention to detail in these fits reveals that Rodgers was making a legitimate fashion statement,” Lanphear wrote.

The same article points to Ralph Lauren, Dwight Yoakam, Robert Redford, Johnny Cash, Marvin Gaye and Bruce Springsteen as famous Canadian tuxedo wearers.

Not bad company.
