Get Your Canada On

We're one month out from Canada Day, and coincidentally, one month is about how long it takes Canada Post to deliver a package. So now is the time to order whatever you plan to spill poutine and Labatt's on when the party starts July 1. Canada Day apparel should be red, white, and loud. Here are a few options:

1. Anything From Roots
Roots is the quintissental Canadian clothing brand (sorry, Le Château), so you can't go wrong with any of their classics—caps, polos, T-shirts and sweatshirts. Shown: CDN09 Zip Hoody, $90.

2. Team Canada Jersey
The current Canadian olympic hockey jersey is predominantly black, and looks sharp. But for Canada Day you want to Ebay a classic red or white sweater from a few years back. The older, the better. Shown: 2002 Olympic jersey.

3. Stuff From Great Canadian Brands
There are many facets to Canada's national identity, and clasically Canadian brands are part of what makes Canadians who they are. Normally we avoid the sorts of logos that turn the wearer into a walking advertisement, but for extra street cred, rock anything red and white from Canadian Tire, Tim Horton's, or one of the national beer labels. Shown: Molson Export T-Shirt, $17.
