Sinology Sunday: June 19, 2016

This week, we look at more Eastern Han Dynasty hanfu through pictures from Sinan Ge Hanfu‘s (Compass Pavilion Hanfu) 司南閣漢服 weibo.

Just going to make a note here that sometimes, clothing styles persist in different eras and groups go on a limb and do things like be creative or combine elements from different eras.  Therefore, every now and again, some clothes get kind of hard to classify into a time period and we are left to rely on factors like fabric choice, style of the sleeves, make-up, adornments, etc. to guesstimate a time period.  That being said, not everything we assign may be completely correct despite how much we try. Hanfu from this weibo are in the category that I would say are a bit more “creative” and tend to be a bit hard to classify so I am putting them in the period they would probably fit most closely in although some variance and arguments are probably possible for other periods.
