Kim does not like Kim’s copies.
Many North Koreans have copied his style, suggesting that ruler Kim Jong-un has banned his citizens from wearing leather coats.The sun“.
The dictator’s black leather trench coat has become a cult item in North Korea. At first leather coats were reserved for the elite of the communist state because only they could buy the real ones.
But North Korean clothing manufacturers began importing synthetic leather to create their own versions. The result: fakes were sold in almost all North Korean markets and worn by young people across the country.
Kim became dissatisfied with the ban. Radio Free Asia reports that fashion police are now patrolling the streets and seizing coats from vendors and all citizens who wear them.
The police argue that wearing the clothes of the rulers in response to complaints is “dirty” questioning their authority.
The leather coat is also said to have been worn by the dictator’s sister, Kim Yoo Jong, who was traded as his heir apparent. That is why it is said to have become a symbol for powerful women and North Korean women are not allowed to wear the coat.
After Kim Jong-un already banned the wearing of skinny jeans to face “Western degeneration”.
