Sinology Sunday: November 22, 2015

This week, we take a look into more Republican era-inspired clothing from Mr. Chen’s Chinese Photo Studio 陳先生的復古照相館.

Next week, we may do a loop-de-loop and start as far in the beginning as we can in the Chinese history timeline in terms of clothing and available pictures and then work our way to where we started in the Tang dynasty.  This coincides nicely with the release of a couple dramas such as Qin’s Moon and The Legend of Miyue.  Strap yourselves in, boys and girls.

More pictures below the cut.

The following are some links that may help you get some background information.  Please let us know in the comment section if there are any other sites you may be able to recommend for more pictures.
