In the west the form of dress prescribed for formal events after noon is traditionally Evening wear. In other words the Tuxedo. The military equivalent for the west is the “Mess Dress”, “Dinner dress” or “Full dress uniform” basically a military tuxedo.
I know that the PRC adopted the “Mao Suit”; Under well Mao. As the equivalent to the western tuxedo as formal evening wear for diplomatic functions. Does the PLA have Formal uniform equivalent mess or dinner dress?
Is it a Mao suit done up with military paraphernalia? Or do they just ritz up the service uniform?
