Describe an interesting style of clothes in your country.
A vital part of Chinese civilization, traditional clothing plays an important role in the country's historyand culture. The Chinese form of traditional dress: "Tangzhuang" or the "Tang suit" is one of the most interesting styles among them.
It is a combination of the Manchu male jacket of the Qing Dynasty and the western style suit. It is usually straight collared, with coiled buttons down the front. Its colour and design are in traditional Chinese style but the tailoring is western.
Four characteristics are distinctive for the Tangzhuang. The Mandarin collar with a front opening is a traditional style of Chinese clothing. The opening is symmetrical and the collar stands straight up. The Chinese knots, being handmade, are used as buttons as well as decorations. Another characteristic is the fabric, which usually is a traditional cloth such as brocaded silk. Adding the western solid cutting method and shoulder pads makes the clothing fit better.
