A Study on the Image of Show Window Display - Based on Apparel Stores in Pusan -
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1109~1116
This study was designed to investigate the image of show window displays. The specific objectives of the study are as follows; 1) Construct a semantic differential scale to evaluate the images of show window displays; 2) Identify the factor structure of the show window displays; 3) Cluster the brands according to the images of show window displays; 4) Examine how the images of show window displays differ according to the different brand clusters; and 5) Identify by brand clusters, how the different show window display images affect the purchasing desires. The following conclusions were made from this study; 1.25 pairs of adjectives for show window displays were found to include five factor dimensions (total variance 67.7%) such as evaluation, interest, hardness and softness, maturity, and modernity. 2. The brands were divided into six clusters according to the show window display images. 3. There were significant differences in the visual evaluation of the brand clusters in the show window display images. 4. There were significant differences in the show window display images that affect the Purchasing desires among the brand clusters.
Measurement of Thickness of Still Air Layer above Fabrics
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1117~1123
This paper describes the measurement of thickness of still air layer above fabrics and its relationship to structural properties of fabrics. Rayon fabrics - of both filament and spun - and wool nylon blended fabrics varied in terms of surface hairiness were used. Temperature and relative humidity above fabrics were measured at the various distances from the fabric surface. Increase in the thickness of fabric, fabric weight, yarn count, and crimp resulted increase in thickness of still air layer above fabric. Surface hairiness of fabrics as well as the structural properties were found to be related with the thickness of still air layer above fabrics.
A Study on Correlation Between Clothing Involvement and Brand Extension
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1124~1138
This study intended to investigate the concept of Clothing Involvement and Brand and to provide useful basic data for building on affective brand strategy. The purpose of this study is as follows: first, It is to measure the result of Brand Extension attitudes and Brand Extension items by clothing involvement (high involvement/low involvement). Second, It is to classify the factors of Clothing Involvement which suggested in theoretical research and to clarify correlation between clothing involvement factor and brand evaluation, brand extension attitudes. Third, It is to investigate the affect that clothing involvement, demographic variable and brand type on Brand Extension Evaluation. Subjects of this study were the adult women in Seoul, who were extracted by sampling randomly during the fall of 1995. Questionnaire was used as major method of gathering data. They were analyzed by the SAS method such as Frequency, Anova, Duncan, Correlation, multiple regression, Factor analysis. Main result of this study were as follows : 1. In brand extension attitude evaluation by high-involve group and low-involve group, quality, reputation and buying intension of brand extension attitudes showed significant difference. B brand extension attitudes and items of high-involve group was high compare to low-involve stoup. High-involve group evaluated watch, underwear, shoes and stocking of extension items highly, and there is no involvement difference of perfume, parasol, cushion. 2. In order to classify the dimension of Clothing Involvement, it was carried out factor analysis. 1 found that Clothing Involvement was composed of 4 factors, namely, interest - fashion.perceived risk symbolism. Correlation between clothing involvement and brand extension attitude was as followed; Interest factor of clothing involvement was correlated the existing brand attitude. Brand preference of the existing brand attitude was related the image of brand extension attitude, interest of advertising was the quality and the reputation-image was the buying intension. 3. For evaluation of a factor influenced on Brand Extension, it was produced multiple -regression test. Demographic variables and brand types had some influence of Clothing Involvement and Clothing Involvement had on brand extension. 27% of interest, 26% of symbolism was explained by brand types and 15% of fashion, 6% of perceived risk was explained by brand types, demographic variables. And, 10% of brand extension was explained by interest, fashion and symbolism.
The Change of Clothing Expenditures and its Determinants in Korean A Time-series Analysis (Part ll)
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1139~1152
Clothing consumption expenditure (UX) data of Korean consumers during the period of 1965 to 1993 were analyzed by time series analysis technique. According to the results of regression analysis, current income and UX of the year before showed most significant influences on the current UX. This means that the absolute and permanent income hypotheses can be accepted in case of clothing expenditures. However the effect of income decreased as the economy developed. The relative price of clothing had weak or no influence on clothing expenditures. It was also found out that CSX of the year before, the change of income, relative price of clothing ware the factors that affected clothing expenditures. From the estimation of Houthakker-Taylor state adjustment model, a negative stock coefficient was obtained. That is, clothing is subject to an inventor effect and Korean consumers regard clothing as one of the durable goods. To define whether clothing is a "luxury" or a "necessity", income and relative price elasticity of clothing expenditures were estimated. Income elasticity of clothing is slightly below 1.0 in case of national aggregate expenditures, and slightly above 1.0 in case of urban consumers' expenditures. Income elasticity has declined over time. Meanwhile the coefficient of price elasticity is not significant, indicating that the relative price of clothing have little connection with clothing expenditure.lothing expenditure.
Computer Simulation for Calculation of Thermal Insulation in Korean Folk Clothes
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1153~1161
The insulation provided by clothing system is usually expressed in terms of a coo units and its distribution of the body, directly affect convective, conductive, and radiant heat loss from the skin to the environment Evaporated heat loss is dependent upon fabric permeability, the amount of body surface area covered by clothing, and the pumping of air between the body and garment layers. Persons at low to medium activity levels, dressed in conventional apparel in door environments, usually do not lose a large amount of heat through evaporation. Thermal manikin technology is used to measure the resistance to heat transfer provided by clothing systems. The reciprocal of this value, 6.45 W/m2.
is often used in calculations for convenience. The purpose of this study was to implement a research program for calculation the insulation value (clo), body surface area and basal metabolic rate of selected clothing system. The project provided for the building of an insulation data base for use in evaluating and comparing new and improved garments.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1162~1172
The actual thermal environment and bedclimate on Ondol were investigated by the regions and housing styles in each season. The subject were sixty healthy men and women, 30 of them live in apartment, and 30 of them live in detached house. 20 of them live in Wonju, 20 of them live in Cheongju and 20 of them live in Pusan. The results are as follows: 1) The subject slept in this conditions; 23.1
8.8% RH in spring, 27.1
6.4% RH in summer, 27.1
11.1% RH in autumm, and 24.9
10.7% R.H in winter The temperatures of the floors were 38.6
in the spring, 26.7
in the summer, 29.4
in the autumm, and 30.0
in the winter. 2) Each thickness of the quilts was thinner in the summer than in any other season, but the differences in the thickness of each mattress was not significant by the seasons. 3) The differences of the bedclimate and the clothing microclimate were significant by the regions and housing in each seasons. The inside of temperature and humidity of sleepwrar were highest in summer. The bedclimate showed high correlation with the clothing microclimate. 4) The differences in the sensation which the subjects felt about temperature and comfort of the bedroom conditions were not significant by the seasons, regions, or housing styles. But the subjects felt more humid in the summer and spring than in the autumm and winter.
A Study on the Effective Design for Figure of Middle Aged Women
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1173~1183
In order to flatter the figures of average middle aged women by determining harmonious proportions for their costume forms, this study evaluates effects of varying design details of jackets(coats) with blouses and slacks using a ranking test and paired comparisons test. The result from clothing design C-2 which has the best design effect were as follows; 1. In order to look taller, the jacket(coats) is divided vertical long line and it has the emphasis point close to the face. 2. In order to make shoulder width look wider, armhole seam line attached 1-2 cm from the shoulder point. 3. In order to make chest width look slimmer, division was made up of a tailored collar with a deep V-neckline. 4. In order to make waist circumference look slimmer, the jacket has more fitted waist line than loosed it and tailored collar with a deep V-neckline. 5. In the case of the division of upper and lower garments, when the division was closer to the golden section, i.e., when the jacket hemline is hipline and slacks length is the heel excluded length of shoe heels, the overall appearance was better. 6. The V-neckline looked better, when it was cut along a long acute angle to the waist line. Because of dividing along above factors 1-6 i.e., clothing design C-2 was overall harmonious. Appropriate division of costume forms made for an aesthetic composition, which flattered the body types of middle aged women and presented harmonious, beautiful costume design effects. It made the women look taller, slim and balanced, and highlighted middle aged women's sense of beauty.

The Cellulose Washing Finish of Blue Jeans (Part ll) the comparison of various fabrics-
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1196~1204
Cotton, rayon/cotton, and Tencel twill weave fabrics were used to investigate the effect of fiber types on the cellulase washing finish. And twill. basket, and derivative weave cotton fabrics were used to study the weave effect. Various fabrics were treated with neutral cellulase varying treatment times and with acid cellulase, stone, and stone-neutral cellulase respectively for two hours in a rotary washer. Weight loss decreased in the order of rayon/cotton> cotton> Tencel, and basket and derivative weave fabrics lost more weight than twill weave fabric. Color difference decreased in the order of cotton> Tencel> rayon/cotton, and twill weave fabric had larger color difference than derivative and basket weave fabrics. Back staining decreased in the order of cotton> rayon/cotton> Tencel, and twill weave fabric had larger back staining than derivative and basket weave fabrics. Tear strength retention decreased in the order of rayon/cotton> cotton> Tencet and twill weave fabric had larger tear strength retention than derivative and basket weave fabrics. Flex stiffness retention decreased in the order of cotton> Tencel> rayon/cotton, and in the order of derivative> twill> basket weave. In cotton fibers, damage of primary wall was observed. And the cellulase treatment on Tencel seemed to roughen the fabric surface slightly, and to fibril fibers along the fiber axis.

The purpose of this study is to positively investigate if the theory of self-monitoring among various individual trait theories would be a theoretical concept which can explain about the differences of clothing behavior under given social situations among Female university students in Korea. For this purpose, the following research problem were set up; 1. Self-monitoring levels and changing differences of self-image as per situation would be reviewed. 2. Self-monitoring levels and changing differences of clothing selection factors as per situation would be reviewed. The results of this study can be summarized as follows; First, as a result of analyzing the differences of situational self-image pursuits within per situation depending on individuals self-monitoring levels, the differences were found significant by. Namely, the adjectives for situational self-image which corresponded to those who had high self-monitoring than low self.monitoring were "womanly", "refined", "sensual", "lively" and "elegant". Second, as a result of analyzing the differences of priority of clothing selection factors within per situation depending on individuals self-monitoring levels, the differences were found significant by. Those who had high self-monitoring level put a higher priority on fashionability, aesthetics and status.symbol of clothing within per situation, while those who had low self-monitoring thought important for economy or utility within per situation.rtant for economy or utility within per situation.
The Meaning of Sengket Textile Design in Bali
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 21, issue 7, 1997, Pages 1215~1226
Textiles in Bali have traditionally played a vital role in the social economic and religious life of the people. Textiles defined the status of the individual in term of both costume and wealth. Use of the various textiles is in Balinese tradition dictated primarily by rules of the Hindu-Balinese faith. Cloths and clothing are employed in worship of God and the ancestors. Gold songket patterned textiles are perceived as symbol of wealth and prestige and provide a fitting display of affluence at important cerenlonial events. The specialized pieces of clothing, temple banners and hangings are unique to each tribal group ranging from weft -patterned textiles in Bali. The impact of Indian ideas and techniques was important in the field of textiles, and many of the characteristics in Bali's fabric design derived from Hindu-Buddhist mythology that has furnished subject-matter for songket textile art. The purpose of this study is to examine the background of Balinese culture and to define the characteristics of Hindu-Balinese textiles. The songket textile design also analyzes by examing the techniques of songket weaving and the meaning of design, pattern, and motif. Many design and motifs convey important messages significant only to those familiar with the particular social religious principle of people who have produced them. It is only by seeing cloths in their cultural context that we can begin to understand their true value and meaning.

The purpose of this study was to classify size specifications of Korean adult male for the men's ready·made garments, especially jacket and dress shirts. Concept of the comfort and fitness has become a major concern in the basic function of the ready-made garments. Data were collected by the real anthropometric measurement and by the photographic sources. Sample size was 1.290 subjects as the sample and their age range was from 19 to 54 pean old by the stratified sampling method. 66 variables from the direct anthropometric data in total were applied to analyze. ANOVA in SAS package was applied to the data and the expected frequency distribution of 10.000 men was calculated by the extraction of density function. Control dimensions for jacket and dress shirts has been designated by Bcorean Apparel Sizing System (KS-K). Therefore this study was performed to classify size specifications by the control dimensions and at the same interval of KS-K. The drop values of 15, 12 and 9 has the high coverage rate of 22.1%, 21.0% and 18.8% respectively and are composed of the majority of 61.9% of the subjects. According to the drop values, size specifications and distribution of control and reference dimensions are predicted. About 65.75% of the expected frequency distribution without stature were covered by 19 size specification.
