Regardless of how people feel about these guys, we figured it might help to lighten things up by poking fun at the way they dressed or still dress.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
Bows-n-Ties.com, a specialty men's clothing retailer and fashion blog, today published a series of articles highlighting the top 5 worst-dressed dictators of all time. The series will consist of five different articles, each of which will focus on a specific individual.
“We’ve publishes quite a few different article series’ in the past, but we’ve never quite tackled a subject such as this,” says Bows-n-Ties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “It’s not uncommon for people to think that fashion and politics are unrelated, but the fact is that this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you’re going to put yourself out there, you’ve got to do everything possible to make sure you’re looking your best. We wanted to highlight a few individuals that proved throughout their dictatorship that they didn’t feel doing so to be worth their while.”
Many famous and notorious dictators make their way into the series. Kim Jong-il makes the list, for example, and is cited for his khaki safari suits and oversized sunglasses. Fidel Castro is also highlighted, with his unkempt beard, military-esque uniforms and - now - tracksuits. In addition, Robert Mugabe, Hugo Chavez and Muammar Ghaddafi all find themselves making the list of top 5 worst-dressed dictators of all time.
“These are all men that are highly divisive when it comes to the opinions of individuals not only throughout their own nations, but throughout the world. Regardless of how people feel about these guys, we figured it might help to lighten things up by poking fun at the way they dressed or still dress. After all, we’re all about having fun at Bows-n-Ties.com, and this was just another reason for us to highlight famous individuals who’ve had more than their fair share of trouble dressing to impress.”
The website also plans on publishing a contrasting series that highlights the top 5 best-dressed world leaders of all time. This series will closely follow the current pieces.
“Just as there have been some poorly-dressed world leaders, there have been plenty that have showed exceptional prowess in the way they put themselves together,” says Pohl. “We wanted to highlight this as well, which is why our next series will focus on just that. As fashion experts, we try to show both sides of the equation, and are always interested in highlighting celebrities and politicians who have a penchant for dressing well.”
