2 Essays from Minghua Tang Blog

2009040102110638661786377In this post are the translations of two essays, titled:

“The Particular Nature of “National clothing” in China, and its Relations with the Han Chinese” (国服在中国的特殊表现,及其与汉族的关系), and:
“The Formation Period of Han Chinese Ethnic Clothing, and the Archaeological Barriers to Clothing in Historical Dramas” (汉族民族服饰的形成期 与 历史剧服饰的考古屏障)

If that is no matter, then be warned that your discrimination for Hanfu quality may forever be changed by viewing this post, or an urge to splurge RMB4200 for a set of clothes (about CDN$650) like so. Discretion is advised. More
