Damn you! Images of male hanfu are hard enough to locate. Now you have to tease me with only images like this?!?

This week, we take a look into more reconstructions from around the Tang dynasty.  Pictures this week come from Clothing and Happiness 裝束與樂舞.

More pictures below the cut.

Hanfu groups seem to work together so I apologize ahead of time in case there are any repeats.  Also, please understand that sorting Hanfu by era can be hard due to similar styles carrying over into different eras, lack of historical evidence or knowledge, and various other factors.

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.

General Chinese Clothing Timeline

Hanfu: General Information, Hanfu List

Make-up: Lips, Eyebrows

… and even less… -_-;;

This one probably predates the Tang dynasty a bit but may have persisted with less popularity into the period.
