Shanghai suit

The blend of culture and Chinese history

The suit originated in Europe in the 17th century. The early suit was a robes-like jumpsuit, which gradually evolved from a short-tailed tuxedo to a modern suit. The tailor-made suits originated in the 18th century England, when Savile Row in London was specially tailored for royal suits, horseback riding suits, and then developed into suits.

 

However, many people do not know that Western-style suits and Chinese history and culture have long been deeply integrated, and developed "sea-style" suits, and even have unique measurement tools for Haipai suits. Now let us return to the end of the 19th century. Let's explore the evolution of suits in China.

Tailing Taipan’s bag tailor

About 1842, before the Revolution of 1911, when the time was opened in Shanghai, the foreigners in the concession were surprised to enter the political and business occasions. In order to trade with foreigners, the upper class in the country also rushed to imitate the clothing of foreigners to bring them closer together. distance.

At that time, the Shanghai Bund merchant ships were frequent, and the bustling and exuberant life of the Shili Ocean was flourishing. Some of the fast-moving Ningbo tailors took a bag and went to the merchant ship to pick up the business of processing clothes. The tailors were in groups of three and five. The board is close to the tall merchant ship. It uses half-baked English and foreigners to repair the suit. In the process of repairing, it learns how to cut all parts of the suit. Over time, it masters the craft of sewing suits and lays out the suit and Chinese history. The indissoluble bond.

Feng (red) to help the rise of tailors

With the rise of Wukou Trading, Shanghai became the international stage and the Pearl of the Orient. People from all over the world and from various provinces came to Shanghai to do business. The culture of the West was constantly input, and a style of wearing a suit was set up. The tailors from Ningbo grasped the suit. After the production method, the suit shop was opened on the streets of Shanghai, and the (red) tailor tailors became 

with the avant-garde of Shanghai clothing.

 

Feng (Red) helped the tailors to develop with the times in Shanghai, and created Haipai suits and professional talents. Apart from Shanghai, Beijing was the birthplace of the Westernization Movement at that time. There were many diplomatic agencies and foreign merchants, so Feng (Red) helped tailors. The tentacles are also gradually developing northward.

The first set of tunic suits

The tunic suit is still a representative costume for high-level politicians to attend major occasions. The tunic suit also has far-reaching significance for the history of Chinese clothing culture.

In 1895, Mr. Sun Yat-sen launched the Guangzhou Uprising, cut the scorpion, changed the costumes, abandoned the costumes of the Manchurian feudalism, and adopted clothing as the first step of reform.

 

This idea was more specific after the Revolution of 1911. Mr. Sun Yat-sen proposed to make a set of four-pocket new garments with straight lapels and flaps. The flaps were made of inverted mountain-shaped pen holders, symbolizing the importance of knowledge, and the five thresholds. The button symbolizes the five-power constitution and the four buttons on the cuff symbolize the Three People's Principles.

Later, the Zhongshan costume became the main dress of the National Government officials at that time. In 1956, the Feng (Red) gang tailor who came to Beijing made woolen tunic suits for the central leaders such as Mao Zedong, Liu Shaoqi and Zhou Enlai. From then on, the Zhongshan costume became a representative costume with Chinese characteristics.This idea was more specific after the Revolution of 1911.

Suit and modern China

The suit witnessed the history of modern China and became a symbol of the advancement of the times. In the 1980s, domestic suits gradually flourished, and some foreign trade companies
The company obtained suits from Europe, America and Japan, and used this as a basic production line suit. Some of them used the method of fur decoration to make a national suit and became the main dress of the public at that time.

In the 1990s, exchanges with foreign countries became more frequent, and the dress of diplomats became more and more important. In order to provide decent suits for diplomats, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Service invited Mr. Xiong Kejia to serve as a technical guide for the diplomatic ambassadors. This is the orthodoxy since the reform and opening up. The Haipai suit process was first reproduced in China. 

After 30 years of economic development, the demand for suits by Chinese people is growing, and the ready-made suits produced by the assembly line cannot meet the new generation of Chinese gentlemen.

The craftsmanship, workmanship and continuation of the traditional suits will provide a higher-level suit experience for men seeking taste.
