Why the sleeves of the ancients didn't fall? This is a problem that many readers are concerned about. Next, we will understand it with you and give you a reference.
In ancient costume plays, we often see such a picture. The ancients would put some small items in the sleeve, and they would not fall out. What's the secret of the sleeve design? In fact, the design is very convenient, so it's easy to hide. But there are also certain requirements for clothing. Not all Dynasty clothing has such functions. In addition to convenience, beauty is also very important. Now I'd like to introduce the secrets in the sleeves of this kind of clothing. It's also very attentive to see the thoughtful actions of the ancients in this respect.
In today's society, people have all kinds of tools to carry things when they travel. The big ones don't say, the small ones have pockets, handbags, schoolbags, etc. they can be carried with them. They are light and not easy to fall out.
But in the case of relatively backward productivity in ancient times, there are no such tools, so how did the ancients carry things when they went out? We can see from the film and television works that the ancients generally put things in their chest or sleeves, which is easy to understand, but it is a little puzzling to put them in their sleeves.
Because most of the clothes of the ancients were made of long robes. From the outside, there was no pocket in the design, and the sleeves were so wide. Things were put in the sleeves. When walking, both hands were in a state of constant swing. When stopping, the arms would fall. Wouldn't things fall out? The answer is yes.
Why? Let's talk about it.
In fact, the ancient people also wore one or even several close fitting clothes, which are called "underwear". This kind of underwear has pockets. So on the surface, it seems that the ancients put things in the sleeves of the wide robe overcoat. In fact, they put their hands into the sleeves and put things in the pocket on the other side of the sleeve. This pocket is not on the sleeve of the coat, but sewed on the underwear.
The specific position of the pocket is on the outside of the underwear sleeve, close to the arm side, about 20 cm away from the wrist, the pocket opening is inclined upward, the pocket opening is sewn on the underwear sleeve with thread, the bottom of the pocket is not fixed, and can be swung at any time. No matter how your arms move or even raise your head when you put things in your pocket, because the bottom of the bag is not fixed, the pocket will hang naturally, so things will not fall out.
Of course, there are also some pockets that are sewn directly into the big sleeves of the coat, but this is a small number after all, because the sleeves of this kind of clothing not only affect the arm movement, but also affect the appearance of the wide robe. Moreover, they are not suitable for putting too heavy things.
In this, by the way, the ancients mentioned earlier in the article also put things on the chest. In fact, the ancients sewed pockets on the inside or outside of the chest of underwear.
When using this kind of pocket, you don't need to extend your hand from the big sleeve of the wide robe, but you can put your hand into your pocket from the lapel. This kind of chest pocket design is still widely used in the common people until modern times.
No matter what kind of pocket designed wide robe overcoat, the ancients were not easy to fall out of it when they were walking, which also showed that the ancients were quite in pursuit of convenience in life.
However, it needs to be pointed out that in ancient times, the people who wore wide robes and large sleeves were stratum, scholars, businessmen, etc. the farmers who were engaged in farming were all wearing short clothes, and it was impossible to wear wide robes and large sleeves. The reason is that it is needless to say that I know, you know, and everyone knows.
