Absolutely not. It's just been my experience that in years of state dinners, etc., I never recall a leader of a Communist nation ever donning a tuxedo for these events. I assume that a tuxedo may be seen as elitist, non-proletariat garb, something reserved for the upper class oligarchs.

I dare anyone to produce a photo of a Soviet/Chinese/Eastern European leader (pre-1990, anyway) wearing a tuxedo!

I don't know, but I think it's interesting for some reason....

I wonder if the Duke is worried about spending so much time with the Chinese president? I picture him examining himself very closely in the mirror each night.....
