Polka Dot Panties, Xin Tian Di

So it’s either been raining or 99% humidity every day for the past two weeks in Shanghai, and it’s showing no signs of letting up any time soon. So the locals are going to pretty drastic measures to keep dry and/or cool, like this guy who stripped down to his polka dot undies and was just chillin’ in the streets near Xin Tian Di… And he’s only wearing one of his sandals to boot, while his dad just sits and sips on his afternoon tea.

I mean, there are lots of examples of Chinese people wearing pajamas in the street, which to Westerners is bizarre but acceptable. This guy pretty much crossed the line into indecency though (I can’t decide if it’s more or less offensive than the Bare Belly trend), but none of the other neighbors seemed to complain… I guess it’s OK because it’s China and the weather sucks right now, but I’m just glad I haven’t seen anyone else follow suit.
