Winter is coming, and temperatures are about to drop sharply in most
cities in China. Many people in northern areas have put on their heavy
winter clothes to resist the cold, including?qiuku, also called long
underwear or long johns in English.
Long underwear is a style of two-piece underwear with long legs and
sleeves normally worn during cold weather. Due to its pronunciation in
Chinese, people call it jokingly “chill cool”. When it gets colder in
autumn, wearing one pair of trousers is not enough, so people will wear
another pair of close-fitting trousers under the outside one.
Ten years ago, Su Mang, chief editor of?Bazaar?magazine, claimed long
underwear compromised fashion. “I never allow people around me to wear
long underwear,” Su said on a talk show.
As a result, those who cannot bear the cold and bow their heads to long
underwear always feel that they are at the bottom of the fashion food
chain. Young people in China believe only grandmothers wear long
underwear and refuse to wear it, no matter how cold it is.
