The Effect of Geometrical Structure on the Moisture Transport Properties of Nonwoven Batting Materials
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 810~818
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of geometrical structure on the moisture transport properties of nonwoven batting materials. Two types of nonwovens were used such as single and double layered nonwovens. Steady and dynamic state water vapor transport properties were measured by absorption, evaporation and cobaltous chloride method respectively. The results of this study were as follows: 1) Geometrical structure affected water vapor evaporation, but there were no differences between single and double layered nonwovens in moisture absorption. Thickness and air permeability were influencing factor on water vapor transport rate. 2) Directionality of double layered nonwoven was observed both in steady and dynamic state moisture transport. There were differences between upper and lower layer of double layered nonwoven both in moisture absorption rate and color change by cobaltous chloride method. 3) In dynamic state of water vapor transport rate, single layered nonwoven reached more rapidly at the established relative humidity. It was confirmed that geometrical structure affected water vapor evaporation and hydrophilicity of fiber affected moisture absorption because there were much more water vapor transport rate by evaporation than absorption within the same period of time.
A study on Improving the Dyeability of BTCA treated Cotton Fabrics Containing Nitrogenous Cationic Additives
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 819~827
The purpose of this study is to produce cotton fabric having improved dyeability and colorfastness as well as retaining the desirable durable press property. When cotton fabric was treated with additives, nitrogen content was increased as the additive concentration was increased. DP ratings and wrinkle recovery properties of BTCA treated cotton fabrics were greatly increased. But DP rating was lowered slightly by adding additives and wrinkle recovery property was decreased with the increase of additive concentration. Tensile strength was decreased by BTCA treatment but increased as additive concentration was increased. Various BTCA/additive treatments produced great affinity for reactive and acid dyes when dyebaths were adjusted at pH 3. It was showed that dyeability was increased as additive concentration was increased. The most effective additive for improving the dyeing properties of the crosslinked cotton was TEAㆍHCl. In case of reactive dye, there was almost no improvement on the dyeability of finished cotton by adding salt. Color fastness to washing and light of finished and dyed cotton were low except for the washfastness of reactive dye. Dyeing the BTCA/additive treated cotton fabrics with reactive dye had no effect on the physical properties.
The Evaluation of Physical Properties and Hand of Bast/Man-Made Fiber Mixed Fabrics
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 828~837
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physical properties and the hand of bast/man made fiber mixed fabrics compared to linen. The mixed fabrics were made by rayon, polyester and modal fiber as warp yarn, and ramie, flax, rayon/flax and cotton/flax as weft yarn. The crease resistance, drape, tensile strength/extension, water absorbancy and warmth retention were measured for test fabrics. The mechanical properties were measured by Kawabata system, and the hand value was calculated by previously developed equation. The results obtained from this study were as follows: The crease resistance and drape properties of bast/man made fiber mixed fabrics were improved compared to those of linen. The tensile strength of polyester/bast fiber mixed fabrics increased compared to those of linen, but rayon/bast and modal/bast fiber mired fabrics decreased. The extension of all mixed fabrics was increased compared to that of linen. The rayon/ramie and modal/ramie mixed fabrics showed lower warmth retention than linen. The mixed fabrics used rayon and modal as warp yarn showed higher water absorbancy than linen. The Koshi and Hari hand value of all mixed fabrics showed lower than those of linen. Fukurami hand value showed little difference between mixed fabrics and linen. Shari, Kishimi, and Shinayakasa hand value of rayon/bast and modal/bast fiber mixed fabrics showed higher than those of linen.
A Study on Use and Purchase Behavior of Sleeping wear for Summer in Chungchong area.
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 838~849
The purpose of this study was to investigate use and purchase behavior of sleeping wear for summer. Subjects in this study were composed of 591 males and females aged from twenties to fifties, living in Taejon and Chongju. For data analysis, descriptive analysis,
-test, t-test, ANOVA, and factor analysis were used. The results are as follows. First, subjects used sleeping wear(a night gown and pajamas), and home wear(T-shirts and sweat suit with zippered top) with similar rates. The subjects, who are females, married, older and have professional jobs, owned sleeping wear such as a night gown and pajamas more than home wear. Also, the mean of using pajamas was the highest, and they were satisfied with them more than others who didn't wear them. Second, one-third of consumers purchased sleeping wear once a year in a specialty store. Consumers mainly searched for information regarding sleeping wear in the display section. Most consumers weren't influenced by others when they made their purchases. When consumers decided to purchase a product, they considered six criteria such as fabric/management, wearing/fitness, esthetic, service, symbolic status, and economic for evaluating. Among them, the factor wearing/fitness was considered the most important. These results imply that consumers would be conscious of sleeping wear even though sleeping wear and home wear are used interchangeably. In addition, consumer behavior concerning sleeping wear is different from their characteristics such as sex, age, occupation, the level of education, and marital state. Therefore, the markets with sleeping wear would be able to be segmented based on consumers’characteristics. Also, marketers should focus on distribution channels to reform the markets of sleeping wear, that is, they may offer products in specialty stores. Additionally, market managers would be able to concentrate on visual merchandising in stores in order to increase brand awareness and market share.
Somatometric Characteristics on Upper Body of Elementary School Girls -Focusing somatometric factors-

The purposes of this study was to provide the fundamental data for children's wear standardizing sizes of ready-made clothes by analyzing the elementary school girls’somatotype. The subjects for anthropometic measurements were 434 elementary school girls’by age groups < ‘(1st age(1ㆍ2 grade)’,‘2nd age(3ㆍ4 grade)’, and 3rd(5ㆍ6 grade)’ > living in Pusan. According to the analysis of upper bodies by the age groups 1. According to the analysis to draw somatometric factors by the age groups, sevenㆍseven and six actors in 1st . End and 3rd age groups are obtained from measurements of upper body. 2. The 1st & 2nd age groups: As the result of factor analysis for the factor, the first and second factors which explain more than 70% of the whole variance represent“horizontal size”and“vertical size”, which characterize more aspects of the body shape of girls at elementary school ages. 3. The 3rd age groups: As the result of factor analysis for the factor, 6 factor which explain 74.39% of variance were extracted form anthropometic data. The first factor represented the items of circumference, breadth and depth related to“sectional size the front length of the upper body”, The second factor described the items of "heights & the back length of the upper body”.

The purpose of this study is to objectively explain the visual sensibility of clothing pattern and develop the design of clothing pattern that satisfies the consumer's sensibility. The photos stimuli on clothing pattern are divided into source, presentation, layout and are composed of each 6 photos per chapter totally 48 photos and semantic differential bi-polar scales are consist of 27 couples sensibility words. The subjects were 400 females in the twenties. Data were analyzed by SAS. The major finds were as follows: 1. As a result of the factor analysis, 4 factors of visual sensibility were consist of Coordination, Hardness and Softness, Attention, Rhythm. 2. As to the difference of visual sensibility based on the composition of clothing pattern, there were differences Hardness and Softness, Rhythm by source and there were significant differences among 4 factors by presentation and layout. 3. According to the age and education level, there were significant differences in Attention, Rhythm and according to the consuming areas, there were significant differences in Coordination, Rhythm. 4. According to sensibility positioning, The clothing pattern was classified as soft-hard, simple-complicated. 5. As a result of the regression analysis, preference, consuming desire and satisfaction appears to be closely related. Good quality is related with total clothing image which is brought about composition of clothing pattern.
The Effects of Situation Factors and Consumption Values on the Impulse Buying Behaviors in Apparel Store
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 873~883
The purpose of this study were to investigate the relationships of situation variables, product variables. consumer variables and impulse buying behavior in apparel store. We collected data from 462 consumers of adult women living in Pusan and analysed by factor analysis, cluster analysis, analysis of variance, t-test and discriminant analysis. The results were as follows: First, The purchase situation influenced on the impulse buying behavior consisted of the Pre-purchase condition and the Point-of-purchase state. The in-store situation consisted of the Salesman/store atmosphere, the Low price and the Possibility of out of stock. And the consumption values of apparel are divided into four factors ; Emotional/aesthetical value, Epistemic value, Functional value and Social value. The clothing shopping orientation as consumer variable extracted six factors ; Recreational orientation, Economical orientation, Brand/store loyalty orientation, Careful orientation, Apathetic orientation and Positive orientation. Consumers were classified by the cloting shopping orientation into the Convenience shopper, the Recreational shopper, the Economical shopper and the Careful shopper. Second, In comparison with the unimpulse-buyin groups, the impulse-buying group is more effected by in-store situation than purchase situation, and were more effected by Emotional/aesthetical value, Social value and Epistemic value of the consumption value. In consumer types, the more was the Recreational shopper and the Convenience shopper, the more showed impulse buying behavior. And the important factor distinguished between the impulse buying group and the unimpulse buying group was the Salesman/store atmosphere of the in-store situation.
The influence of materialism, price and point-of-purchase advertisement on consumers’purchasing behavior -focused on discount Jeans-
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 884~894

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 907~917
Although interest in the potential and actual usage of the Internet as a transaction medium is increasing, the market for fashion merchandise on the Internet in Korea has yet to take off. As the Internet environment is expected to bring about a transformation of conventional consumer buying behavior, the purpose of this exploratory research is to investigate the buying behavior of fashion products on the Internet to identify relevant concepts and generate hypotheses for further empirical research. The research methods selected for the study were observation and in-depth interview. Twelve subjects who had purchased fashion products on the Internet were selected and interviewed. Those who could not participate in face-to-face in-depth interviews because of the geographic locations were interviewed on-line. The results are as follows: First, subjects went through the stages of shopping motivation stage, site choice behavior stage, in-site behavior stage, and postpurchase behavior stage. Second, a model was extracted for each shopping stage, and a final model was completed based on comparisons with the participants processes. The information content of each phase was discussed. Finally, each participant was classified using their purchasing process, revealing six possible mixed usage patterns of the Internet marketing system and the traditional marketing system.

The Process and Determinants of Consumer Satisfaction in Clothing
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 24, issue 6, 2000, Pages 928~939
This thesis will study the determinants of consumer satisfaction based on the disconfirmation theory. The proposed questions are first, to find out if desire and expectation are conceptually distinct. Second, to study the effects of desire, expectation, perceived performance, desire congruency, and expectation congruency on clothing satisfaction. The data used in this thesis were obtained from a two stage longitudinal survey. SPSS WIN 8.0 was used for the analysis and the following method such as mean, correlation, t-test, hierarchical regression were applied. The results indicate that first, according to the correlation analysis and crosstab analysis, satisfaction and desire were perceived as two different concepts. Second, using the hierarchical regression analysis to compare the effects of determinants of consumer satisfaction, the model of desire, expectation, performance, desires congruency, expectations congruency best explain the clothing satisfaction. Among them, effects of performance had the strongest impact. Expectation did not influence satisfaction but desire did.
