Justin Trudeau's Socks Are an Internet Obsession Once More, and It's Easy to See Why
In the world of politics, it’s easy for us to view world leaders as a sum of their policies. However, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is working hard to ensure that’s not the case, and he’s doing so in the most fashion-forward way: with his socks.
While most celebs break the Internet with revealing photos of their bods, Trudeau’s winning method is far more chaste—he simply dresses his feet up to match his mood.
During the inaugural Bloomberg Global Business Forum in N.Y.C. on Wednesday, J.T. wore a charcoal suit, purple-gray tie, pale blue button-up, and brown dress shoes. The prime minister’s boldest accessory, of course, was a pair of brown socks bearing Chewbacca’s likeness—yes, *that* Chewbacca.
Naturally, Trudeau’s sartorial nod to George Lucas’s fan-favorite saga inspired many reactions from the Twitter community, and maybe even provoked a rivalry with fellow Canadian and Star Trek alum William Shatner.
Of course, this is far from the first time that Trudeau has sent covert messages to the public via sock. Scroll down below for a brief look back at the Canadian heartthrob’s best socks ever.
