Imperial yellow jacket. Imperial yellow jacket. The imperial yellow jacket(zh-tst 黃馬褂s 黃馬褂; (Pinyin, Hwan Ma Gwai or Huan ma gua) was a symbol of high honor during China's Qing Dynasty.

In 1759, the Qianlong Emperor of China commissioned a catalog of comprehensive, illustrated regulations for ceremonial garments and accessories worn by the members of the imperial household. Not since the HUANGCHAO LIQI TUSHI was written have we seen a more stunning look at the colors, designs, and insignias of China's last imperial dynasty. With detailed descriptions and exquisite illustrations, this invaluable reference preserves the fashionable side of China's dynastic history for generations to come. With beautiful color illustrations culled from public and private collections and a helpful glossary of Chinese terms, IMPERIAL WARDROBE is an ideal reference book for collectors, scholars, and Chinese history enthusiasts.

Always fascinated me to know the work that went into making an Imperial robe, and the silks and embroideries that went into the making of a robe that is so delicate and superb in the workmanship it has, Now the other step going forward and the reason for buying the book is to know the meaning of each of the robes and what it stands for in Chinese history.

This is probably the most sumptious reference book on Qing Imperial Court Dress published in English. The book clarifies the codification of sartorial rules allowed for by Imperial decree during the Qing realm. Clear photographic examples with fantastic colour reproductions of artifacts are presented throughout. These include all the dragon robes, headdress, overcoats, shoes, belts, beads and accessories. The book is extremely well-presented and designed. There is a revised second edition to this book.
