photos & information about Chinese clothing
Men's Chinese Shirts often come with Chinese Dragon Embroidery or prints. The Chinese dragon is a mythical Chinese creature that also appears in other East Asian cultures, and is also sometimes called the Oriental or Eastern dragon in the West. Usually depicted as a long, snake-like creature with numerous claws, it has long been a potent symbol of auspicious power in Chinese folklore and art.
Chinese Dragons are referred to as the divine mythical creature that brings with it ultimate abundance, prosperity and good fortune. Unlike the negative energies associated with Western Dragons, most Eastern Dragons are beautiful, friendly, and wise. They are the angels of the Orient. Instead of being hated, they are loved and worshipped. Temples and shrines have been built to honor them, for they are believed to control the rain, rivers, lakes, and seas.
Men's Chinese shirts are also often called Kung Fu Shirts and Mandarin Shirts. This is because they usually come with Mandarin collars and the long sleeve shirts have folded-up cuffs, much like those of Kung Fu suits.
