It just seemed some of the criticism was based on disagreement over his politics rather than based his fashion statement.
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....
