Kim Jong-Il: Fashion Icon?

Kim Jong-Il's khaki suit has made him a fashion icon, Pyongyang's official website has declared. An article printed in communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun reported:

"The reason is that the august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people's mind in the world....To sum it up, that is because his image as a great man is so outstanding."

The article's reporter even consulted a French stylist, who confirmed that the suit is in style:

"Kim Jong-Il mode which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide is something unprecedented in the world's history."
