Historical Clothing
« on: April 18, 2021, 05:24:18 PM »
I started this thread because the forum lacked a location for discussions on historical clothing, armor, patterns, materials, and patterns for men and women. You can post photographs, daguerreotypes, and other media of historical clothing. You might comment on what interests you about the different types of patterns, styles, function, and materials from historical sources.

I have been casually researching women's and men's clothing styles from China during the late Qing dynasty of the mid to later 1800s. I have enjoyed the brocaded silk clothing styles of both the men and women. More layers of clothing and more elaborate embroidery on the clothing indicated a person's higher social status since silk, gold, and brocaded clothing cost significant amounts of money.

Women wore traditional ethnic hair styles throughout the Qing dynasty. The Qing government mandated Chinese men wore the queue hairstyle until the Qing Dynasty collapsed in 1910, so Chinese men's traditional hairstyles mostly appeared among men in photographs after the dynasty's collapse.

I also briefly looked into the clothing styles and conception of femininity for the Thai Royal house around 1900. This article discusses the Thai conception of femininity around 1900 in the Thai Royal House under threat from European Great Powers.
