*This is about the "repackaging" of the right-wing extremist groups in Sweden, who by the metaphor of "changing the bomber jacket for a blazer" have actually gained a (small) place in Parliament. There is lots of talk of aesthetics in the article, about the "new face" of the party. As a party that wants to "keep Sweden Swedish"--to put it mildly--their appearance is quite important.
