Longing for Hanfuk

I have been longing for owning a
suit of Hanfuk for a long while. But I didn’t find the one hitting the
spot.
 
Introduction of Han Chinese Clothing.

Han Chinese clothing or Hanfu (simplified
Chinese
: 汉服traditional
Chinese
: 漢服pinyin:
hànfú; Wade-Giles: hanfu), also
known as Hanzhuang (漢裝), Huafu
(華服), or
guzhuang (古裝, meaning "ancient
clothing"), and sometimes referred in English sources simply as Silk
Robe
[1]
(especially those worn by the gentry) or Chinese Silk Robe refers to the
historical dress of the Han Chinese people, which
was worn for millennia before the conquest by the Manchus and the establishment of
the Qing Dynasty in 1644. The term
Hanfu derives from the Book of Han, which says,
"then many came to the Court to pay homage and were delighted at the clothing style
of the Han [Chinese]."[2]

Han Chinese clothing is
presently worn only as a part of historical reenactment, festivals, hobby, coming
of age
/rite of passage
ceremonies, ceremonial clothing worn by religious priests, or cultural exercise
and can be frequently seen on Chinese television series, films and other forms of media entertainment. However,
there is currently a movement in China and overseas
Chinese communities to revive Han Chinese clothing in everyday life and
incorporate in Chinese festivals or celebration. Some costumes commonly thought
of as typically Chinese, such as the qipao, are the result of influence
by laws (Queue Order) imposed by
Manchurian rulers of the Qing Dynasty, and are
regarded by some advocates as not being "traditionally" Han. Technically, the
Qing dynasty and afterwards would be considered modern China, so the qipao would
be modern clothing and not traditional. Today, most Han Chinese wear
western-style clothing in everyday life. Some urbanites wear
modified or modernized traditional clothes, while many in the countryside still
use distinctive peasant dress.

Neighboring countries clothing, such as the Japanese kimono and the Vietnamese áo tứ thân,
were all influenced by Hanfu,[3][4][5][6]
as historically these countries were part of the Sinosphere.[7][8]
