NOKO Jeans are finally for sale on their web page here. However they include a not-so-subtle warning to American shoppers:
Important regarding ordering from the USA: at this time, goods of North Korean origin may not be imported into the United States either directly or indirectly without prior notification to and approval of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). You need to apply for this in order to import goods produced in North Korea. Contact OFAC here: http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/. It is the buyer’s responsibility to get this approval.
OFACS is the same outfit that is supposed to go after you if you visit Cuba. I am not recommending you do so, but it semes to me that it would just be a lot easier to have a friend in Europe order them for you…
