Professor Liam Kelley of the University of Hawaii at Manoa wrote: As a history of the clothing worn by members of the court, the government, and common people over a period of some 1,000 years, this book does deal with a topic that some scholars in Vietnam have previously written about. However, as the author makes clear in his preface, earlier works relied heavily on modern Vietnamese translations of texts that were originally written in Hán (classical Chinese). Trần Quang Đức, on the other hand, makes extensive use of sources written in Hán by both Vietnamese and Chinese authors over many centuries. Therefore, while this topic may have been discussed before, this book is unprecedented in the scope of the sources it is based on, and in the expertise of the author's reading of those sources... This book therefore marks an incredible scholarly accomplishment.
