Canada has Justin Trudeau to swoon over, but here, state Rep. Chris Lee (Kailua, Waimānalo) wins our vote for best dressed (and best dimples!). His well-suited style is sharp, yet casual, and his work attire involves pairing a blazer, vest and tie with slim-fitting denims. Off duty, Lee keeps it simple (especially when he’s building hidden-door bookshelves) with a soft tee from college and comfy jeans.
