The Qin Dynasty was for the most part pretty short so clothing differences didn’t really seem to have the time to develop significantly. Therefore, the next major period would be the Western Han Dynasty (Experiencing Dynastic Restoration).
This week, we move on in the Chinese history timeline past the Qin Dynasty and into the Western Han Dynasty with Experiencing Dynastic Restoration 朝代復原體驗 and Hu Jingming 琥璟明. Remember that this is still part of the time period when Chinese underwear was in develop to properly cover the body and thick and heavy clothes of dark color were favored by the upper class.

Clothing from the kingdom of Chu. I seem to remember that Chu, although conquered later by the Qin, seemed to have a strong influence from a cultural perspective on the Han Dynasty (Clothing and Happiness).

Remember that this is still a time period when Chinese underwear was in develop to properly cover the body. Therefore, thick and heavy clothes were favored by the upper class.
