Daily Telegraph reveals that North Koreans now face new restrictions on Western clothing, including but not limited to jeans.

The reports reveal that new controversial rule is reportedly focused on the North Hamgyong and Yanggang provinces of North Korea.

Both areas which share border with China, face these restrictions due to the fact that their citizens have easier access to information and cultural trends from other parts of the world.

The ban was reportedly uncovered by citizen journalists at Rimjin-gang, a North Korean news website supported by AsiaPress, adding that citizens will be monitored by a growing group of youths reported to be loyal to Kim Jong-un.

Rimjin-gang reveals that said the "inspection" units "target supposed capitalist tendencies such as length of skirts, the shape of shoes, T-shirts, hairstyles, and clothes".

This news comes barely months after it had been reported that Kim Jong-un has been ordering men to copy his 'ambitious' hair style limiting.
