Justin Trudeau Is the Best Dressed Man in Politics

The Canadian prime minister is never not on his fashion A-game.
Comments

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's impeccably polished style has been one to watch in the political world since he took office. Granted, this is not a place where stakes are very high, but he has held us over since chill-tastic Obama left the White House (taking his positive demeanor and eye for a well-cut suit with him). The current American administration might consider reallocating Mar-a-Lago money somewhere it might make a difference—with a tailor or stylist, perhaps.

But Trudeau's style stands on its own, and the Internet's sweetheart is our reminder that dressing for a professional setting doesn't have to feel bland. And considering the hellscape that is modern politics, it's refreshing to take a step back from partisan bickering and just appreciate some well-tailored suits once in a while. Trudeau's are slim and modern, and the unofficial standard for which all political leaders should aim. Here are some of his sharpest looks.
