    "The Mao jacket first appeared in Sui's Legacy Mantle series, begun in 1997. Conceived both in groups and individually, the Legacy Mantle works take the form of a full-bodied but empty, self-supporting Mao jacket, fleshed out in a variety of sizes, materials, and surface colorations. Although many of the Legacy Mantle works seem to invite a quick reading, the breadth of Sui's work with the historic garment renders simple interpretations problematic. Likewise, Sui's profound understanding of different materials as well as the multiple references he is able to evoke with familiar forms bears closer scrutiny. The artist himself speaks of the legacy of Mao as a mantle covering contemporary China, a cloak worn in some manner by all, whether individually recognized or not, and remaining present today despite the radical transformations of contemporary culture."

    Joe Hill in Exhibition of Works by Sui Jianguo, Times Square, Hong Kong, 2008

    「『毛裝』在隋於1997年開始創作的『衣缽系列』中最早出現,它們成組或單獨構成,採用了整套完整的毛裝,但是沒有人穿,空的,一套自我懸掛著的衣服,被不斷地使用不同的尺寸、材質,表面的著色加以充實。雖然大部分的『衣缽系列』作品開起來好似只需一種快速閱讀的方式就夠了,但是隋的作品的寬度使他的這套歷史的衣裳並不能用簡單的方式來解讀。同樣地,隋對不同材料的深刻理解,他對所熟識的形式所採取的多種參照都是經過仔細審視的。藝術家自己也認為,毛的中山裝是承載了當代中國史的,一件在某種形式上被所有人穿著的衣服,不論每個人是否意識的到,雖然當代文化已經經歷了激烈的轉型,它也一直被持續到今天。」
