Let’s talk #Sogdian fashion.

We’ll work backwards from the 8th Century.

Men’s clothing essentially consisted of trousers, tunics, coats, and boots - the same sort of stuff worn across Eurasia at the time.

All these items had a long history behind them, starting among the nomads centuries ago. Add a belt and jewellery and you’re good to go!

Sogdian tunics were long, extending below the knee, and had decorated collars, cuffs, hems, and strips running down the shoulders, usually made with pattern woven silk. They were fastened with a button on the shoulder, a fashion that stems from Han Dynasty China. ~NA

Check out “Before & After” #USA Meddling: From #Iraq to #Afghanistan #Libya & #Syria. Missions Accomplished? Numbers & Facts. - - - “Nearly 4,000 Afghan civilians killed or wounded in first half of 2019, UN says” sabahdai.ly/1dh6z9
...And then define that “Mission”. Interestingly, 3 out of 4, targeted the “Only” Secular nation’s in the #MiddleEast: #Iraq #Libya #Syria & Brought to them #Extremism. Now compare these to #USA chummy allies: #SaudiArabia #Kuwait #UAE.
How can you let them tell you “liberation” when in action it is supporting, spreading & sustaining: #Wahhabism #Sharia #Extremism #Terrorism (aka #alQaeda #ISIS)? How can anyone with half a gram of brain swallow and allow these atrocities in their name & tax-money?!
