Abstract: “Courtesies” and “Etiquettes” in mourning apparels are two paralel concepts noted with regard to the phenomenon of commoditizing and merchan-dising modern apparels. When more options are there for apparel designers to chooses, one has to deifne the boundary of “Courtesies” and “Ethics” that apparels are to demonstrate i.e. apparels in a form should not cease improving but to merely seek echoing courtesies. Likewise, they also should not be designed overly creative in the name of “Etiquettes”. In ancient China, there is a traditional saying that “most extreme form of etiquettes are shown in mourning”. This essay, via adopting mourning apparels as a means, attempts to distinguish the relationship between mourning apparels from perspectives concerning ideologies, state institutions, and natural inlfuence factors. It is ex-pected that, as the apparel industries keeps evolving, designers might want to take into account the philosophical considerations.
