Kim Jong Un said, ‘Police have instructed North Koreans not to wear leather coats because it is part of the party’s guidelines on who can and who cannot wear it.

This allowed traders to order counterfeit leather from which the coat is made.
Traders from North Korea have also ordered this leather. Kim Jong Un appeared in this coat for the first time in December 2019.
