Too much trouser break?

Who is his tailor? Certainly not anyone from South Korea - they always do a fine job (at a reasonable price).

Funny you should mention this: just this weekend I pointed to a picture in which the maximum leader's trouser legs were of differing lengths. This oversight must be due to a preoccupation with his bouffant hairdo and glamour girl sunglasses.

The officer on the left must be eating the rations of the officer on the right....

Are these twin soldiers on his sides? or are they clones?

I've seen shots of Giorgio Armani, with a bigger 'break,' than that . . .

He looks like a rapper. Although, have you ever read the section in Flusser's book that showed a look during either the 40's or 50's with pants much , much baggier than that and almost covering the shoe. It looks stupid in any period.

I know what you're talking about, but while those trousers tended to have extraordinarily wide openings, there wasn't all that much break.

Maybe he isn't wearing his platform shoes but the pants are cut for them? It looks like he is almost walking on his pants. It was my understanding that he normally wears risers to add a few inches to his 5'3 height. He would want his pants to cover as much of the extra shoe as possible. His guards are also probably selected to make him appear taller then he is and they are probably family since he is supposed to be parnoid about his security. He had his chair built up when Sec. of State Albright met with him of course she wasn't exactly tall.

Maybe the max leader has shrunk as he's gotten older. And, since he wears sunglasses all the time, maybe he's experiencing cataract problems. Or, he's hypersensitive to light. There's some nutritional deficiency which causes such a sensitivity. In any event, I wish him all the worst.
