London, April 8 (ANI): North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Il is now making news for reasons other than his emphasis on the east Asian nation's defense - his signature dressing style, tunic and matching trousers, is fast becoming a fashion statement across the world, according to an official government website.
Kim Jong II, 69, often wears the simple dress in khaki or blue-grey colours. In winter he also sports a shapeless anorak and fur hat.
"The august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people's minds in the world. That is because his image as a great man is so outstanding," the Times quoted an article on uriminzokkiri.com, as reading.
The article also quoted an unidentified French fashion expert as saying: "Kim Jong Il mode, which is spreading expeditiously worldwide, is unprecedented in history." (ANI)
