At first, it was a companion to the church schools in China of the western Jesuit and Catholic missionaries, which made it very early to come into contact with the dress. The emergence of degree suits in China has its historical and social origins and backgrounds, not from institutions of higher learning. The Italian Ricci (P.matthoeusricci) was the first Jesuit to preach in China on the cover of science and education. He shenzong Wanli 29 years (A.D. 1601) came to Beijing, initially opened the door into China. To this end, in 1735, Father Badomin (Parennin) wrote: "In order to attract their attention, it is necessary to gain their respect and trust through the knowledge of science." There is no better way to make them listen to the basic truth.
