On behalf of Lee Jung-Taek (the student in London), I would like to
thank all of you who responded with great suggestions regarding research
on clothing.

I find this topic very interesting.


"...the gender asymmetry in these matters, and not
only in North Korea. Chaps may wear Western suits - but woman
must represent The Nation. (No doubt the postcolonialist crew have 
spotted this, and dressed it up in all sorts of fancy theory garb.)" 


I would like to point out another salient South Korean disconnect. Until
quite recently, at least, prisoners--often incarcerated long before
convicted--were/are brought to court dressed in hanbok to face judges
and prosecutors cloaked in imposing, black and grey Western get-ups.
