The military coat can be said to be the memory of an era, the former military coat is not only a symbol of status, but also a trend of a certain time, but I don't know when the military coat has quietly withdrawn from people's sight and is no longer a symbol of fashion.
But no one would have thought that the military coat has now swept abroad, not only becoming a fashion trend, but also a symbol of status, and even has the title of "Oriental Shirt".
This can't help but shock and puzzle netizens, in our opinion, it is a symbol of "soil", how it has become the favorite of foreigners.
The scarce "Oriental robe" abroad
In the past, the status of military coats in the hearts of the people was also quite high, but with the development of the economy and the improvement of living standards, it is no longer difficult to have one person.
The emergence of all kinds of clothing has gradually made the military coat fall off the altar, from fragrant and sweet to the work clothes of farmers or workers, and has almost become a must-have item in the construction site and factory.
In this way, the military coat, which is no longer scarce, has gradually become a symbol of dirt and scum, and it has nothing to do with fashion, and some mountaineers even use it as a warm clothing, after all, the military coat is cheap and warm in our country, and it is not distressing if it is dirty and broken.
However, this military coat, which people don't pay much attention to, is a treasure abroad, and it is not like buying it at home, roadside stalls or online, and you can casually get a thick military coat at a low price.
Only those who have a certain economic strength may be able to buy one, after all, in foreign countries, military coats are not bought with money.
Even if it has been priced at $100, foreigners are still scrambling to buy, some people are looking for purchasing agents, some people buy it online at a high price, and some people even pay a deposit, waiting for this military coat that has not yet started production.
It can be said that the military coat in the foreign market, the interpretation of the rare is incisive, so that Chinese merchants never dreamed that the military coat that was eliminated by the Chinese people could quickly occupy the foreign market in such a short period of time, and directly to the extent of out of stock.
The military coat can be said to be very cheap in the mainland market, after all, it is mainly used for keeping warm for Chinese people, but for foreigners, the meaning and role of the military coat is no longer so single to keep warm, the most important thing is to highlight the identity and status.
In foreign countries, if anyone can buy a military coat, it is quite a face-saving thing, and it marks that he is rich, and gradually, "Oriental robe" has also become another name for military coats abroad.
Military coats are actually a fashion trend
In foreign countries, military coats have become the new favorite of the rich, and you can often see a few foreigners wearing military coats talking and laughing together on the street.
But in the impression of the Chinese people, the military coat seems to be a fashionable insulator, but the truth is diametrically opposite, this military coat that looks earthy to the extreme is also the favorite clothes of many stars.
In 2018, comedy star Song Xiaobao once wore a military coat to perform on stage, and under the backdrop of the military coat, he seemed more down-to-earth and made his works more real.
Tranquility, who can win a lot of men but didn't take it, appeared directly in a military coat on the award night of the 19th Golden Rooster Awards.
In the case that other stars are carefully dressed up and competing for beauty, Queen Tranquility directly reverses the operation and returns to the truth, and a military coat becomes the focus of the audience.
When Deng Chao was filming "The Breakup Master", he also had a moment when the military coat appeared, and the crew of "The Frozen Gate of Rebirth", Ren Dahua, Wang Baoqiang and Donnie Yen took a group photo in the military coat.
Sun Honglei wearing a military coat and walking his dog also caused a lot of sensation at the time, and the appearance of the stars' military coats also gave designers a lot of inspiration.
After that, they innovated and revised the military coat, which became synonymous with fashion, and even went to the runway, and the Chinese merchants who would never miss any business opportunities also kept up with the forefront of fashion, and all the major platforms launched military coats overnight.
And military coats are no longer just a fashion that adults can have, Chinese merchants have also made children's clothing versions, which can be satisfied by people of all ages.
How military coats spread abroad
The reason why the military coat can become popular abroad is actually inseparable from a foreigner named John, it is precisely because he traveled to China for the first time and knew nothing about the winter in China, and he shivered in the cold wind wearing his brand-name down jacket.
The enthusiastic Chinese tour guide couldn't bear to see him shivering, so he took the initiative to give him a thick military coat, and when he didn't put it on, he disdained it, but after putting it on, he was shocked.
It was this experience that made him madly recommend the Chinese military coat to his friends after returning to China, which is not only cheap and warm, but also very resistant.
Gradually, the military coat rose abroad and became the dream of the countryman, but in fact, the origin of the military coat was not in China, but in the United Kingdom.
The original intention of the British to design the military coat was to protect against the cold and keep warm, although it is only a very simple style, and ordinary green, but it is indeed extremely comfortable to wear.
However, at that time, military coats were not as popular as they are now, and they were only popular among the upper classes, which was difficult for ordinary people to own.
At that time, the military coat was more used as a clothing to respond to the call of war, and even high-ranking British officials wore it to command the war and resist the cold.
It was not until the end of the Xinhai Revolution that military coats began to be introduced to the mainland, but at that time it was only a "niche" and did not become popular, and it really became popular from the eighties of the last century.
At that time, the materials in our country were still relatively scarce, and food and clothing were only barely enough, not to mention wearing all kinds of novel styles of clothes, most of the people wore the same, and the fabrics were not very good.
And the green of the military coat broke into the field of vision of the Chinese people and began to become a symbol of fashion.
With the continuous development of light industry, a variety of novel and unique clothing into the market, the status of military coats has quietly changed, and the warmth in winter has gradually been replaced by various styles of down jackets.
The military coat has withdrawn from the Chinese market, but now it has become a fashion representative of foreigners, in fact, this also shows that the international status of the mainland is constantly improving.
The military coat has become a link of cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries, oriental clothing has gradually begun to show its prominence in the world, and Chinese fashion is slowly occupying the high ground.
Of course, I also hope that the military coat can make more and more foreigners feel Chinese culture, walk into China, and experience Chinese customs.
