President Xi wears Mao style suit to flex on royals while attending a diplomatic dinner

GreenforceFortune

It's not about flexing. The Mao-style suit is a symbol of national identity and is typically worn for the most formal ceremonies or for events of significant importance. That includes state dinners, by the way.


PostTransitionMetal

it's actually called the zhongshan suit


HoneyIllustrious

When was this photo btw?


goodanimals

I really like this saying about zhongshan suit (the map-style suit). It says: the western suits is a reminder for other people that the person wearing this suit is superior, while the zhongshan suit reminds the person wearing this suit that they are equal to the others.


1or2atrocitiesareNBD

The flex is because of the stupid white tie dress code the royal family still expects people to adhere to. And traditionally, when you visit a country, you follow their customs


PermanentAnarchist

Weird, never saw the Queen in other countries traditional celebratory clothes. Must be one of those rules, huh


Dear_Occupant

The queen has it coming anyway because the last time she visited the US she refused to wear the traditional Dallas Cowboys jersey and ceremonial giant foam #1 finger.


TheRealColonelAutumn

HOW UNCOUTH


SmallRedBird

Aren't they called Mandarin collar suits, in English?


NorthYoung

They're called Zhongshan Zhuang or Zhongshan Suit. Named after Sun Zhongshan, the dude who overthrew the Qing dynasty on his second attempt and founded the koumintang who eventually escaped the mainland to Taiwan. Sun Yat-Sen aka Sun Zhongshan was a dapper chap who had a couple of wives and studied in France, Japan and Hawaii. It think he and Chiang Kai Shek married sisters.


REEEEEvolution

Jup, he got the cooler one tho. Mrs. Yat-Sen later lead the left-Koumintang who stood with the CPC (and still does, its now one of the constituional parties). Her sister wanted to nuke China.


The_Otaking

Under Sun Yat Sen, the Komintang was an observer member of the IIIrd international and Lenin and Sun Yat Sen had a friendly relationship. Today he is still considered like a great man and the founder of modern China by the CPC.

MadicalEthics

That's certainly what we call shirts with such collars.


ManufacturerOk3222

he's flexing and the bald guy is crapping his diaper


Native_ov_Earth

Based Xi. It would be really cool if he gifted the queen a copy of the little red book. I'd really like to see her face when that happens. 😂

Peace_Bread_Land

Did she ever meet Mao?


FunerealCrape

refusing the white tie getup is a nice flex


fatimang

He should also ask for chopsticks instead of a fork.


TheOnlyPPGun

On one hand Mao suits looking cool as fuck on the other I'm not Chinese and there are no good occasions for me to own one.


dornish1919

Pretty sure I’ve seen Parenti wear a Mao style suit in a few of his lectures.


Jakhlaghi

The idea of parenti in anything but a sweater kinda makes me feel weird.


Gravelord-_Nito

I really, really like the elegant fusion of the traditional Chinese jacket styles and the modern black business suit. It absolutely looks cool as fuck.


ttomgirl

same! have you seen mandarin collar shirts? they're a nice formal style shirt that subtly alludes to the "mao" style. i have a couple and i've gotten lots of compliments. i got them on aliexpress actually


Dear_Occupant

Those were in fashion for a hot minute back in the 90s. I used to have three of them.


ttomgirl

awww i love that. i'm just a little 2000 baby so i had no idea 😊


TheOnlyPPGun

I have a few button jackets that are almost mao suits. With the duel pickets and a collar. They are more western US style though.


tentafill

I think it's fine to wear one any time you'd wear a normal suit though


TheOnlyPPGun

Yeah maybe, but again not Chinese so it would look out of place at best and slightly racist at worst.


thesetheredoctobers

Stalin also wore a tunic style suit.

This is EXACTLY what I needed this morning Good bot


arrigator16

The Stalinka suit is always an option too, very similar to the Zhongshan but with much more international connotations rather than national sovereignty ones.

Evening_Tree

lol anyone who says it's cultural appropriation or something to wear a zhongshan is getting a swlrlie you don't have to walk on eggshells that much though yeah kinda out of place, might be a fashion crime


ozzyosbournvita

Lol no. Dressing up in clothes from other countries (as long as it's not on Halloween) is only considered cultural appropriation or racist in the west.


just_wondering-_-

Luna oi and others seem to have an issue with Chinese models wearing dress styles that may be from Vietnam. It's not just a western thing


33rdJanuary

Most Chinese (including me) probably wouldn't mind at all if a white guy / a westerner wears a Zhongshan Suit. Remember the Qipao controversy, where a white woman wore a qipao to prom? All the people saying that it was cultural appropriation were "woke white leftists" and half/3rd gen Asians who were subsumed into the former. All the regular Chinese people thought she looked nice in it.

I’m sure you can find other clothes that don’t necessarily have to be zhongshan. I had a really nice jacket from quicksilver that 1000% took inspiration from zhongshan suits.


GloomyEra666

Every Chinese leader wear this suit when attending important meetings


ZhongguoGraecia

Xi Jinping got drip

That's impossible, he can't have dr-

Lmao fucking monarchs look SO uncomfortable.


Boogiemann53

Literally if they aren't suffering in some way they aren't actually royalty, they'd be disgraced if they were chill.

vilereceptacle

Bruh hanfu is just a costume. No one wearing hanfu actually advocates for a return to monarchy or shite. We can have pride in our culture without advocating for a return to those times


Astutestud

?


GloomyEra666

I'm sorry but 汉服 is just a weeb thing in China now


Astutestud

Fucking weird to call a Chinese cultural clothing "weeb thing", especially when the ones wearing it are Chinese themselves. Japanese people are weebs for wearing "anime clothings" like yukatas and eating "anime food" like sushi?


GloomyEra666

Lmao have you those fucking heavily revisionary汉服 people wear today? It's cringy and inappropriate. If you are talking about the real fundamental 汉服 it's also inappropriate to wear it for a fucking country's president.


Astutestud

Lmao, i have always thought these arguments are dumb, it isn't revisionary if it's made by Chinese people. Hanfu revival isn't cosplaying to look like how our ancestors did, so what if Chinese people made revisions? Even back in antiquity, Hanfu fashion changes from dynasty to dynasty, don't use a facetious comment to call Hanfu cringe. Whining about 影楼装 is just weird.

I hope he _accidently_ pushes her down a flight of stairs (in minecraft)


qyo8fall

At this point a sneeze’ll do her in


nintendo_shill

Did he also ride a Mao style bike?


AmerikkkaDeserved911

Why is Xi hanging out with pedos and racists? 😔


C24848228

Because then the pedos and Racists will scream and throw a tantrum and he doesn’t want his ears shattered.


bengyap

Oh ... for a moment I thought you were saying that the Queen was flexing. After all, she was wearing that thingy on her head made from the world best diamonds plundered from her colonies.

Nice!


[deleted]

Um, ackshooly, that suit was popularized by Sun Yat-Sen.


vilereceptacle

Arguably the only based member of the kmt


[deleted]

The KMT in general used to be a big-tent “Chinese Liberation” party up until Chiang started the civil war and Wang turned traitor for the Japanese. By then, all based members either died or joined the CPC. Many of them (including Madame Sun) considered the KMT as irrevocably tainted since Sun died.

EtchandFletch

Mao suits always gave me a Star Trek or utopian science fiction vibe.


33rdJanuary

The zhongshan suit is great, and what's more it's *chinese*. Chinese politicians wearing western suit and tie is just dull and boring. Heck, my formal wear is a Zhongshan suit.
