Justin Trudeau Is the Best Dressed Man in Politics
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.
The Venn diagram intersection of "political leaders" and "men who wear white jeans well" is incredibly small, but Trudeau is sitting right at the center of it.
