Justin Trudeau on Live with Kelly and Ryan


That’s all I really need to say about our Prime Minister, really. He likes his creative socks and he often makes fashion headlines for them. And why not, really?!

Obama famously told Vanity Fair that simple wardrobe choices were part of his productivity method:

“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits,” [Obama] said. “I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”

Trudeau follows that same simple of advice of sticking to simple suits and ties but he adds a wrinkle to his wardrobe by dropping in festive socks every now and again.

Mark’s has the kind of socks that a dad like Justin Trudeau would love this Christmas.

From festive trees and skiing Santas

To hot dogs, weiner dogs, and dolla bills.

And don’t forget the Star Wars socks!

Mark’s also has a great collection of desktop gifts – perfect for a Prime Minister with lots of real estate in his office.

We already know he’s a Star Wars fan, how about a Millennium Falcon desk lamp?

Or some table hockey? Some brain puzzlers?

In addition to being perfect for the Prime Minister dad in your life, these kind of gifts are also perfect for the staff gift exchange at work.

And even a sharp dressing world leader needs to roll up his sleeves and slap on some jeans (and Trudeau does both), and there’s nothing I like more than Levi’s jeans and a Denver Hayes Classic Fit Never Iron Dress Shirt.

Sticking by the Obama rule, I have a closet filled with black shirts and all the same style of jeans. When it comes to casual weekends, I always match it up no matter what I grab


So, Santas of the internet, got some ideas for the guy on your list? Mark’s is the place to fill it out and here’s a chance to win a $100 GC to get it done:
