    Default Naked (!) male wuxia character finds a set of modern Western clothing...

    Oddball imaginary exercise:

    The main male protagonist of any well-known wuxia novel suddenly finds himself naked in a room. In the room, however, is a table where a complete modern 20th/21st Western suit is laid out: button-up dress shirt, matching jacket and trousers/slacks, matching necktie and pocket handkerchief. Also included are a pair of dress socks and a pair of nice leather shoes. All the clothing is perfectly tailored to the wuxia hero in question.

    Note: these are all men from the China of roughly 1100 - 1600. NONE of them has seen a 20th/21st Century men's suit before. Who do you think will figure it out and dress himself appropriately, and who will be hopelessly confused by the unfamiliar garb and make a complete farce out of it?

    I think it will be fine for everyone, possibly except for the necktie (put on the hair) and handkerchief (tie on one's forehead; arm; leg)

    I think there will be some problems with G-string. Possibly wear around the head?
