    Help with Mandarin please.

    Not sword related, but don't know were else to post this.
    I have a favorite piece of outer ware, that is an updated Chinese classic. It is embroidered with many characters.
    I was wondering what they meant. Here is a sample. I want to make sure it doesn't say something like, "the wearer of this garment is some stupid westerner"

    Thanks. Jerry

    Thanks Lovebell. I guess it's better that way I would rather it be plain though, but it's so comfortable and fits just right.
