Fashion in China 1985 (part 1)

The mid 1980s had been the time of opening up to the outside world in China. The traditional blue or green Mao suit (for Westerners) or Zhongshan suit (中山装 [for our Chinese compatriots) was left in the closet. T-Shirts with western characters 'bloomed' like Mao's 100 flowers (so to say). The very best at that time had been the glasses with brand names. The bigger the brand name (usually in pinyin), the better the look.
