It’s no secret that people love Justin Trudeau. He’s been profiled in the pages of Vogue (alongside his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau) and The New Yorker, and was specifically called out by The New York Times for making Canada “hip.”
But you know the obsession over Canada’s Prime Minister has reached peak intensity when someone makes a sweatshirt emblazoned with his face and… biceps.
The ‘Moosin’ Trudeau Sweater‘ is described as an all-occasion sartorial item that showcases the 44-year-old’s love of our fine nation’s wilderness. Accompanying the Fabio-like depiction of Trudeau are renderings of the Rockies and several Canadian geese. Instead of riding a horse, he’s riding a moose. The item can be yours for the low, low price of $60.
If you’re not into wearing a shirt that looks eerily like the overly macho images of Russian President Vladimir Putin riding shirtless, there’s no need to worry. Shelfies’s online store also has a T-shirt dubbed “Dreamy Trudeau,” which features the father of three riding a horse in a suit alongside psychedelic prints.
The depictions definitely provide a different way of looking at the Prime Minister, who Vogue praised for his sleek style. “Strikingly young and wavy-haired, the new prime minister is dashing in his blue suit and jaunty brown shoes — a stylistic riposte to the old world of boringly black-shoed politicians.”
But, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
