I have long contended that wearing a suit sends a message to the world that you're corrupt and evil. I had no idea that not only do many people agree with me, they seem to admire those traits:

There, standing in the dock of a Baghdad courtroom on charges of orchestrating mass murder, was Saddam Hussein wearing a pinstriped suit made by Mr. Cesur's Istanbul-based clothing company. Whenever the former Iraqi dictator reached inside his jacket for a pen, the "Cesur" label was flashed on TV screens across the world.

But rather than taking a nosedive, Cesur's sales have been booming since Mr. Hussein's court appearances began this fall.

Uhhhh... Yeah.

Well, you've got to admit, if your suits can make Saddam Hussein look good, you must be a damn fine tailor.
