Han Chinese clothing or Hanfu, also known as Hanzhuang, Huafu, or guzhuang ("ancient clothing"), and sometimes referred in English sources simply as Silk Robe[1] (especially those worn by the Chinese clothing gentry) or Chinese Silk Robe refers Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume the Chinese clothing historical dress Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing Han Chinese people, which is Chinese shirt or Chinese pants was the Chinese traditional costume and Chinese ancient dress worn for Chinese Shoes (Kung Fu Shoes or Clothes Shoes) millennia before the Chinese clothing conquest by the Chinese clothing Manchus and the Chinese clothing establishment Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing Qing Dynasty in 1644. the Chinese clothing term Hanfu derives from the hanfu(Chinese hanfu) the Chinese clothing Book Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Han, which is Chinese shirt or Chinese pants says, "then many came Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume the Chinese clothing Court Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume pay homage and were delighted Chinese dress, Asian dress and oriental dress the Chinese clothing clothing style Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing Han."

Han Chinese clothing is cheongsam and qipao presently worn only as Asian clothing and oriental clothing part Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes historical reenactment, hobby, coming Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes age/rite Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes passage ceremonies, ceremonial clothing worn by religious priests, or cultural exercise and can be frequently seen on Chinese television series, films and other forms Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes media entertainment. However, there is cheongsam and qipao currently Asian clothing and oriental clothing movement in China and overseas Chinese communities Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume revive Han Chinese clothing in everyday life and incorporate in Chinese festivals or celebration.

Some costumes commonly thought Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes as typically Chinese, such as the Chinese clothing qipao, are Chinese ancient clothing and Chinese traditional clothing the Chinese clothing result Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes influence by brutal laws (Queue Order) imposed by Manchurian rulers Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing Qing Dynasty, and are Chinese ancient clothing and Chinese traditional clothing regarded by some advocates as not being "traditionally" Han. Technically, the Chinese clothing Qing dynasty and afterwards would be considered modern China, so the Chinese clothing qipao would be modern clothing and not traditional. Today, most Han Chinese wear western-style clothing in everyday life. Some urbanites wear modified or modernized traditional clothes, while many in the Chinese clothing countryside still use distinctive peasant dress.

Hanfu has Asian clothing and oriental clothing history Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes more than three millennia, and is cheongsam and qipao said Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume have been worn by the Chinese clothing legendary Yellow Emperor. from the hanfu(Chinese hanfu) the Chinese clothing beginning Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes its history, Hanfu (especially in elite circles) was the Chinese traditional costume and Chinese ancient dress inseparable from the hanfu(Chinese hanfu) silk, supposedly discovered by the Chinese clothing Yellow Emperor’s consort, Leizu. the Chinese clothing first solidly historical dynasty known Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes in China, the Chinese clothing Shang Dynasty (c.1600 BC-1000 BC), developed the Chinese clothing rudiments Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Hanfu; it consisted Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing yi, Asian clothing and oriental clothing narrow-cuffed, knee-length tunic tied with Chinese traditional clothes and Chinese ancient clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing sash, and Asian clothing and oriental clothing narrow, ankle-length skirt, called shang, worn with Chinese traditional clothes and Chinese ancient clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing bixi, Asian clothing and oriental clothing length Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes fabric that should be Chinese traditional dress or Chinese ancient costume reached the Chinese clothing knees.

The dynasty Chinese costume, Asian costume and oriental costume follow the Chinese clothing Shang, the Chinese clothing Western Zhou Dynasty, established Asian clothing and oriental clothing strict hierarchical society that should be Chinese traditional dress or Chinese ancient costume used clothing as Asian clothing and oriental clothing status meridian, and inevitably, the Chinese clothing height Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes one’s rank influenced the Chinese clothing ornateness Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing costume. Such markers included the Chinese clothing length Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing skirt, the Chinese clothing wideness Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing sleeve and the Chinese clothing degree Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes ornamentation.

In the Chinese clothing Eastern Zhou Dynasty, the Chinese clothing "deep robe" (shenyi) appeared Asian clothing and oriental clothing combination Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes tunic and skirt. the Chinese clothing upper and lower halves were cut separately but sewn as Asian clothing and oriental clothing single unit. An additional change was the Chinese traditional costume and Chinese ancient dress the Chinese clothing shaping Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing left side Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes the Chinese clothing costume into Asian clothing and oriental clothing corner, fastened on the Chinese clothing chest. Perhaps because Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Confucian influence, disapproving Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes Asian clothing and oriental clothing hierarchical society in favour Chinese clothes, Asian clothes and oriental clothes social mobility based on personal merit, the Chinese clothing shenyi was the Chinese traditional costume and Chinese ancient dress swiftly adopted. There still existed an elite however, and they monopolised the Chinese clothing more ornate fabrics and grandiose details.
