Here are my replies to previous asks for hanfu sources in English. Please check them out for helpful links!:

1. Book recommendations about the history/making of hanfu 

2. Resources for researching hanfu of a specific period

3. Guide to hanfu names in English

4. Guides/tips for making hanfu 

5. References on sewing hanfu

In addition to the above, I also recommend the following resources:

1. Hanfugirl blog – Hanfugirl is a very knowledgeable blogger with lots of in-depth posts on hanfu, and Chinese culture and history in general.

2. Quora has some helpful Q&As that go into comparisons between hanfu and hanbok, such as: 

– Why does Korean traditional costume look similar to costume in Ming dynasty China?

– Which comes first: Hanbok of Joseon or Aoqun of Ming?

– What’s the difference between the “Mandarin attire” (官服) of Ming China and Joseon Korea?

– What is the difference between the traditional costumes of Japan, Korea, and China?

– What elements of Chinese culture were adopted by the Koreans, Vietnamese, and Japanese?

Hope this helps!
