blue cloth tooling in those years

in the honor room of Zixing Procuratorate, Hunan Province, the author saw a well preserved procuratorial work suit before the “Cultural Revolution”

the dress is pure blue, cotton winter dress, with five dark brown plastic buttons in front, and its style is close to “Zhongshan suit”

it is understood that this garment has been donated by a retired veteran of our hospital for nearly 50 years. Before May 1, 1984, procuratorial organs at all levels in China were not equipped with special procuratorial uniform, which became a very popular work uniform for procuratorial organs at that time

blue cloth tooling is the most popular neutral clothing in China

in the 1950s, the construction of new China set off a climax, people advocate the most glorious labor, simplicity is the fashion. Workers usually wear blue cloth work clothes, and wearing work clothes becomes a kind of glory

in the early 1960s, three years of natural disasters led to a sharp reduction in cotton production. The cotton ration was 21 feet per person, which should have been the most difficult time at that time. Clothing, cotton and daily textiles are bought with cloth tickets. 1n order to save as much as possible, the standard of clothing purchase is wear resistance and dirt resistance. Gray and blue have become popular colors on the street. Uniform clothing styles, regardless of season and gender, are more popular

Lei Feng wrote in his diary in 1961, “what is the beauty of the times? The workers’ greasy blue frock is the most beautiful… All these constitute the beauty of our times. 1f anyone thinks it’s not beautiful, he doesn’t understand our times. “

in the 1970s, almost all the college students who just graduated and went to work were wearing blue overalls. 1t shows the spirit of the times of hard work and plain living. But even as like as two peas in uniform, young men in this period always have some young men who want to make their clothes look better — or to make them more suitable or to reveal a flower collar.

having occupied China’s fashion market for 30 years, the dominance of blue cloth tooling led French journalist Robert gilland to call the Chinese “blue ants”. This AFP reporter, who is used to describing history in detail, was in line with the trend of Western uglification of China at that time. 1n 1955, he wrote a book entitled “blue ants: 600 million Chinese under the red flag”

over the next 20 years, with the continuous popularity of similar books in the west, this metaphor has been frequently seen in Western newspapers and almost become a nickname for China. “People wear blue wherever they go,” it says. The girls as like as two peas in trousers, except for drooping hair or peasant plaits, are dressed exactly like men. “
