The Chinese are no strangers to the finest choice of clothing -- what with many of the world's largest companies' factory operations based there -- but the photo compilation of 'Accidental Chinese Hipsters' on Facebook shows they aren't afraid to show off their fine taste in clothing.

The account, which has over 60,000 'Likes,' features a collection of hilariously dressed Chinese people -- mostly elderly -- who sport the such unique fashion accessories such as fish bowl earrings, a transparent orange wizard hat in the middle of a subway train, and wearing the Russian punk rock group P*ssy Riot-esque masks to go swimming in the sea. While the comments on the Accidental Chinese Hipsters page range from appreciation to blatant racism, the page nonetheless shows the unique styles in which some cultures make use of certain fashion items some of us wouldn't dare to touch and mix up with our own everyday clothing.
