       唐装婚礼的北欧朋友 (中英文对照)         许舍山人 - 許舍山人 - 許舍山人

乔纳森和素芝是我的北爱尔兰朋友,日前他们在家乡隆重举行婚礼,穿的是我为他们度身定做的唐装,新人兴高采烈,所有的来宾对这熠熠生辉、高雅华贵的中国礼服惊叹不已,都要去摸摸,欢喜赞叹。数千年的中国服饰在英伦小岛上产生这样大的魅力,这使我十分欣慰,也是意料中事。

我和乔纳森相识在网上,一个淳朴热情的北欧的年轻人就此对中国文化产生了浓厚的兴趣,很快地做起了进口中国产品的工作。我做了几十年外贸,熟路轻车。他感兴趣的是盆景,盆景既是我国数千年传统文化典型代表,又是很有文化品味的生意,但是在盆景被视作封资修玩意遭到灭顶之灾的几十年里,国际市场全被日本和韩国占领了,当然他们的艺术家对此研究得很好,在将美带给世界方面做了大量的工作,以致今日的英文字典里,盆景就是日语Bonsai,海外几乎没人知道“盆景”还应译作Penjing。现在海外有一批人在做着艰苦的工作,重振中国盆景的雄风,方届而立之年的乔纳森就是其中的佼佼者。

我曾跑遍了宜兴丁蜀镇,为他挑选一批又一批精美的紫砂制品,各款各式花盆,天目釉茶具、新出窑的仿“一片值千金”的“砂金碗”、包银嵌金的紫砂茶壶。。。。,一一做好英文说明,以利他的对客销售。我们的配合是非常成功,非常愉快的。

他告诉我他和苏芝的婚礼定在今年二月二十五日,诚邀我前往出席。路途遥远我不能去,但我一定得有所表示,送什么好呢?我想到了唐装,中国人的传统服饰是举世闻名的。乔听说则很兴奋。

宜兴历来是教授之乡,出过那么多文化名人,如今繁荣之极,街头看,靓装无数,比南京时髦多了,深知民间一定有缝纫高手。我遍访大街小巷的衣着店铺,最后选中了城内国际饭店附近的李小新服饰店,料作很多,做工精致,听说是为宜兴的欧洲客户定做婚礼唐装,年近六旬的李师傅一脸高兴,诚恳地说“有幸!有幸!我一定亲自动手,精工细作。”

我替新娘选的是织锦缎,玫红为底,上面朵朵细小的金色梅花,一片喜气洋洋。新郎则是软缎,黑底上寿字团花,高雅潇洒。回到南京便是一封封“伊妹儿”询问新人的三围尺寸,一张张全身照从网上发过来,新郎一米八八,新娘也有一米七0,幸得李师傅的公子是开电脑公司的,全凭email来去商讨,尺寸敲定之后,李师傅带着老花镜日夜兼工,一直做到小年夜方始完工。

我在插队时自己做过棉袄的,一看那做工就知道很工细,盘扣订得很挺,新娘礼服苗条得很,新郎唐装则是一等的大号,体重八十多公斤呢。为怕航空平邮赶不上婚期误事,我请舜天的朋友替我特快专递,就这也路上走了十天才到。那边收到来信说很合身,质地很高级,新人很开心。昨夜新婚照传送过来,光彩照人的一对新人和他们的父母一再表示感谢,极口称赞唐装的华丽出众,使新人出尽了风头。新郎说今天外出度蜜月,半个月就回来,要坐下来安排工作,下一步他打算将他的盆景公司搬到北爱尔兰首都贝尔法斯特去。

Before long, he started the imports business of the Chinese Bonsai pots. As doing foreign businesses for years, I got good experiences and knowledge on foreign trade. And he is interested on potted landscape which is not only our typical tradition culture over thousand years, but also a very good cultural business. However, potted landscape looked as feudalism, capitalism and revisionism gadget encounter disaster for over ten years. The international market seized by Japan and Korea, certainly their artist regarding this studied very well, they do massive works to bring the beautifully to the world, so that the potted landscape in today English dictionary is used the Japanese word “Bonsai” for the meaning, rarely did know the right word “Penjing” means potted landscape. Now a group of people is doing the difficult work in overseas to inspires the Chinese potted landscape, Jonathan is one of the outstanding persons.

When the old tailor, Mr. Li, heard that order is for the wedding party of an European customer, he sincerely said that is his honor and he must made by himself, and the works should be meticulous. I select the tapestry satin, rose red color with some tiny golden color plum blossom on for the bride, it is jubilant. For the bridegroom, I chose the soft satin, black color with the character ”Longlife” on it, it is lofty, natural and unrestrained.

Back to Nanjing I sent e-mails to inquire the size and shape of the newlywed body, photo of their body was sent tru’ email. the height of bridegroom is 1.88 and the bride is 1.70 respectively. Fortunately, son of Mr Li is a proprietor of computer company and we can discuss online. After the size is confirmed, Mr Li works day and night with glasses on and until the lunar year evening, the clothes is completed.

 

I had my own makes the cotton-wadded jacket when lived in the countryside as the Zhiqing during the "culture revolution", so I have knowledge to feel the clothes is very exquisite, the plate buckle very subscribes, the bridal clothes is very slender and the Chinese tradition clothes of the bridegroom is an extra size since his weight is more than 80 kilograms. In order to avoid the aviation postal error miss to catches up with the wedding date, I requested courier from my friend of Shun Tian Group to deliver the clothes, About ten days, they received the clothes and send me e-mail says that "the beautiful dresses arrived today and they fit perfectly. I will send you a photo of us in them. Thankyou very much they are very high quality." and sent me a
