Beijing Bikini : 大爺們會掀起下一個時尚旋風嗎?

HF Crewon September 13, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Have you heard of the great ‘Beijing Bikini’?

No, it’s not for Beijing girls. Actually, Chinese men wear sort-of bikinis in summer and even sometimes in winter. Basically it looks like this. It’s pretty common to see Chinese men ranging from all ages rolling up their shirts, exposing their belly buttons amidst humid and hot summer weather. They’ re different from Hong Kong’ s topless builders, because those who roll up their shirt are not limited to their occupation. But here comes the question- why?

Of course, it is relatively understandable that they feel so hot in the scorching hot summer weather. But why?

A Chinese medicine doctor told the Los Angeles Times that Chinese men choose to expose their belly because they feel so hot in summer but feel embarrassed to take off their shirts completely. He called it as a ‘sort of compromise to the custom of men going totally shirtless.’ Believe-it-or-not, a Chinese local says that it is illegal for Chinese men to be topless within city limits. Also some people explain it as something to do with the flow of Qi.

So what do you think?

之前的臉堅尼(facekini)在全球範圍內颳起了時尚旋風,人人都驚奇大媽們除了廣場舞之外,居然還有這麼大的貢獻。而另一種裝扮也引起了小編們的注意──「北京style比堅尼」。你以為我們說小姑娘嗎?我們在說的是滿街的大爺們!我們總是可以見到他們把衣服掀起,露出肚皮──天氣太熱了!

雖然不太雅觀, 可是如果受到時尚界點石成金的教母們相中,說不定在不久之後也能像臉堅尼一樣讓大家趨之若鶩呢!
