The Iconic Men's Chinese Jackets
When it comes to coats and jackets, the Chinese men of the former days basically wore them to protect themselves from the cold and dust, such as when riding a horse, which was then the only mode of transportation. At times, like during the windy days of spring and chilly days of winter, they would wear a vest underneath their padded jacket for added warmth. But more than a staple clothing for keeping warm, Chinese men's jackets were also made from fabrics and in designs, which mirror their wearer's prestige. That's why, while most of the Chinese men wore cotton jackets, the rich Chinese, including the Chinese Emperor, wore silk jackets, coats, and vests. On certain times, like during the Qianlong Period of the Qing Dynasty, the Chinese upper class splurged in pricey leather jackets, which were lined with fur that face outwards.
The Tang Suit
The modern generation also saw the popularity of the Tang Suit, which was considered from the 1940s up to the time when the Chinese men adapted the Western suit as formal occasion wear. Worn by the Chinese men of the upper class over their tunic up to the end of the Qing Dynasty (1636–1911), the Tang Suit is donned by the modern gentlemen in timeless Asian style as the final touch to a Mandarin-collared shirt, black pants, and black formal shoes ensemble. In-between, it is donned with a completely modern feel as the smart-casual jacket to a casual shirt and dark pants ensemble. Classically made of silk and with its Mandarin collar, structured cut, and long sleeves, the Tang Suit is, no doubt, a vision of Oriental refinement.
Through the years, the Tang Suit stood out to be an iconic Chinese creation that it did not only grace many special occasions, like Chinese festivals and traditional Asian celebrations, it also inspired the design of the modern Kung Fu jackets and the Mandarin-collared jackets, which are adapted these days by many clothing brands worldwide in various types of fabrics and designs that suit the taste of the modern gentlemen. To ensure that your closet only gets the best among their kind, reward yourself with one of the traditional Mandarin-collared Chinese jackets we have here on KimonoRobeStore.com.
