“I am personally not interested in clothing. The long johns I am wearing now were bought for me by my mother in the 1960s,” Bo said.
“I'm telling you all that the jacket I'm wearing, and the suits in my wardrobe, were all produced by a township enterprise in Xinjin county in Dalian.”
The comments appeared in regular but delayed transcripts of the proceedings posted by the Intermediate People's Court in Jinan on its verified account on Sina Weibo, a Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
Long johns are commonly worn during China's harsh winters.
