This Instagram Account of People in China Who Have No Idea What They’re Wearing is Cringey and You're Going to Love It

The Instagram account ‘Shanghai Observed’ captures raw WTF moments from the perspective of a foreigner in China. A lot of the time, that means finding wacky English phrases on clothing that would be a total FML for the wearer…if they had any idea what it meant.

If you’ve ever been to Asia, you know that quite often, things get lost in translation. In fact, sometimes you’ll come across words that have straight-up no meaning at all. This can be especially hilarious when it’s manifested in a funny, and more often than not, inappropriate, English phrase on an item of clothing.

Alex Greenberg, a freelance photographer based in Shanghai, notices stuff like this on a daily basis and figured his friends and family back home might find it funny, which is why he started the Instagram page, Shanghai Observed. It consists of original photos he takes himself as well as content from submissions.

The only requirement? It’s gotta be ridiculous.

Here are some of the absolute best posts about clothing in China! Some of them are too perfect.
