PHOTOS: The Many Styles Of Darwin The Ikea Monkey

If you’re like us, you’ve been gleefully following the story of Darwin, the seven-month-old rhesus macaque found wandering around a Toronto Ikea this weekend wearing a tiny shearling coat, pretty much since the moment it broke. A coat-wearing monkey! In an Ikea! This is the stuff internet dreams are made of.

Naturally, Darwin became a meme in about no time flat, popping up in everything from Lion King scenes to paparazzi shots with Lindsay Lohan.

But the real icing on the cake is the latest development. The National Post kindly tipped us off Darwin’s whole wardrobe of nifty threads. Not only can he work a shearling with just as much aplomb as Jordan Catalano (no small feat, you know), but he also gives fellow Canadian Justin Bieber a run for his overall-wearing money. Maybe that means the next stop for Darwin should be a meet-and-greet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper — although we’re certain that he, unlike the Biebs, would at least have the curtesy to break out his best suit and tie.

Check out Darwin’s enviable wardrobe below and just try to tell us he isn’t the most stylish primate you’ve ever laid eyes on:
