    You can just visit N. Korea being a tourist. Although, it takes lots of time to get visa approval.

    But how do you apply for a visa. I dont think they have their embassies in a lot of countries. And which airlines fly into Pyongyang

    Bribery, of course. You should watch the Vice Guide trip there (1, 2, 3).

    This caught my eye - do you guys think it´s ok to wear a few sizes too small jacket as long as you have red pants? If it is, I´m getting a pair immediately!

    his jacket is not a few sizes too small if that is what you are getting at.

    his jacket fits him in the shoulders and does not pull in the chest. Length varies dramatically from jacket to jacket nowadays.

    The jacket is the correct size for him, regardless of personal feeling about the styling. I think it looks nice, if a little short for his height.

    The jacket looks too stuffed for my taste and seems to end halfway down his butt (after removing hands from pockets). On the other hand, why not? This seems to be one of the most important issues I´ve learned here so far - that the jacket length is probably not really a concern nowadays.

    I don't know.
    They have embassy in Russia. So, there is a chance to visit N. Korea and then have a trip back to the future. Some friends of mine visited it and had very strong emotions of it.
    As for the flights, there are flights from China to N. Korea. It is the only way to get to N. Korea, afaik.

    Who wants to go there in the first place?

    It is an intriguing place... The clocks have stopped more than fifty years ago over there...

    They only recently shut their embassy here in Canberra. I was there with an NGO, but tourists are admitted, although it remains the least visited country.

    Anyway, to steer this thread back on to the titular topic: some of these pictures look very Sartorialist. Is this derivative photography?

    Also, the factory is completely empty, the workers are merely for show, and everyone is starving to death. [​IMG]

    actually, it takes a while to heat that steel slab and they're definitely going to turn that into billets or some other downstream form. so these workers deserve a day or two's grass to digest on. [​IMG]

    Probably someone who has already seen a lot. And wants to see something different.
    Here in Russia, the ones who travel there want to see what could have happen to them in the worst scenario.

    You can see one of the review's of N. Korea from a Russian tourist here.

    It has to be the only place in the world where you will not bump into a McDonald's restaurant at every street corner...
