  1. I am mostly han chinese but my favourite style is the Tunguisic Manchu/Mongol attire. With the shaved tops and a long ponytail hidden under a fur circular hat with ribbons and a single one piece shirt.

  2. I don't get how people at my school confuse chinese with japanese, like in 2nd grade I had this conversation with someone.

    Kid: so you're from japan right?
    Me: yea.
    Kid: so yOU SPEAK chIneSe riGhT?
    Me: nO
    Kid: ur not chInESe!
    Me: i'm from japan
    Kid: SO YOU'D BE CHINESE!?!?

  3. The spread of Manchu clothing in China is inversely proportional to the proliferation of Man culture. Nowadays the Man and the Han are indistinguishable and speak the same language. Man language, architecture, practices has been extinguished during the Cultural Revolution. The Qipao and the display of Manchu culture in movies is merely a distraction from the fact that the CCP destroyed traces of Chinese culture and the only thing they can pander to the world is the surface level Man culture which has almost completely disappeared.

  4. As an American, I cannot wrap my head around how old China is. It is absolutely mind boggling how ancient Chinese culture is and how much of it has endured through the ages. America is less than 300 years old and our culture is already cancelled.

  5. I like all the palace fashion style of the Imperial China, except for the Manchu. I especially hate their conical hat style, not to mention their stupid hair. Their soldiers look's more like a bunch of farmers.

  6. If I were really rich, I would have a whole lot of those type clothes custom made from some official Chinese tailors from genuine Chinese silk, because, experience has shown me that the one thing that is ALWAYS best when "Made in China" it is traditional clothing made by traditional methods, by certified tailors who either learned from their parents [not very common any more, sadly, because of the CCP] or by those who gained access to the historical information [or actual ancient clothing] and learned these methods by the time honored means of "REVERSE ENGINEERING."

    And hey…when it comes to things which are not only a national treasure, but FAR TOO OLD and far too widely used to have patents on them, such as ancient traditional fashions, I'm all for resurrecting them by any means!

    I honestly believe China would do better to en-mass seek its roots wholesale and give up this whole 'rule the world' thing, going back to the age of beauty, culture and enlightenment. [as in some time pre CCP]

    Then again, America could benefit from reverting culturally to about the 1200's [as in pre-white man].

  7. I have a beautiful silk Cheongsam with a dragon embroidered on it [was over 500$ new], but sadly, right now I'm too FAT to wear it…so I am waiting to find some GENUINE weight loss tea I keep hearing about from ancient Chinese tradition so I can slim down to wear it again.

    Anybunny out there know any genuine real Chinese herbalists I can contact about weight loss? ~( 'w')/

    Here in the USA, too many fakes, novices, and people who are just too un-educated. /( -_-)

  8. Hey Dude, I think most of your real person pictures came from NTDCHINESE. They are inaccurate and low quality. But it's good trend to see more oversea Chinese getting knowledge on the native culture.
