'No Farmers Allowed'

Truly a sign of the times from modern China (Changchun). Well, it's either farmers or workman's attire they don't like.

They have a point, though: Every farmer I know is always wanting to pop into the local Emporio Armani!

Good observation. If we cast our minds back to the 90s, we also saw upwardly mobile HK chinese in the UK fear being re-associated with their old "lower-class" castes (the knackered Flip-flops, wrinkled shorts, stained T-Shirt & toothpick stereotype) so out came the bling, Armarnis, Guccis etc. Looking at this, is this not history repeating itself to some extent but in the form of a directive: "don't come here looking like *that*!
