Can men wear the bijia?

Can men wear the bijia?

Hi, thanks for the question! 

The hanfu garment Bijia/比甲 (sleeveless jacket) was mostly worn by women, but men did wear a very similar garment (which can arguably be categorized as Bijia) called Zhaojia/罩甲. Zhaojia is a long, sleeveless, vest-like garment that was common during the Ming dynasty. Below – modern recreation & examples from historical Ming dynasty art (Images via: 1, 2):

Zhaojia can have a vent in the back, which was originally for ease of movement during horse-riding:

Hope this helps!
