We all know about Justin Trudeau, don’t we?

He recently became Singaporeans’ bae due to his respectful manners when he was here for the ASEAN Summit. But didn’t you know that he likes to wear socks that even your hippest friend won’t dare to look at?

The highly charming leader of Canada has been sported wearing fun socks even during official visits, and he’s proud of it.

For some people, the first thing they look at when they meet Mr Trudeau is his socks, which is understandable. I mean, he’s even donned a pair of Chewbacca socks.

So much so that someone apparently gifted him a pair of socks that has her face on one feet and Mr Trudeau’s face on the other feet.

And the sporting politician is of course happy.

Now, if he’s a Singaporean, he’d be delighted to know that there are some fun socks on sale too.
