Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 553~562
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.553
This survey investigates the conditions of summer working uniforms for contracted foodservice workers. The data were obtained from 67 workers through in-depth interviews (July 2005~October 2005). The results of study are as follows: The working environment changed to menu and cooking method (air temperature
, humidity 72~86 %RH, radiant temperature
, air velocity 0.14~0.37m/sec). They answered that the working environment has high temperatures, humidity, excessive noise, and liability to slide. The typical accidents were burns, cuts, slide, and ligament injuries in the workplace. Work duties consisted of cooking, serving food, washing, and cleaning up leftover food. All the employees carried out multi tasks. The primary working postures and motions were standing, crouching, and lifting. The female workers usually wore underwear (panty and brassiere), upper and lower work wear, aprons, waterproof-aprons, cotton-gloves, rubber-gloves, socks, and rubber-boots. The satisfaction of the uniform was relatively low for trousers and waterproof-aprons. The answer about the fit was generally "comfortable." They answered "back," "chest," and "head" were wet with perspiration during work. The uncomfortable parts were the crotch and neck. Questions concerning their satisfaction with the material of uniforms indicated a high rate of dissatisfaction, particularly for ventilation and absorbency. In case of the colors of the working uniform, workers preferred white color for the upper part, and black color for the lower part.

DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.563
This study focused on the consumer post-complaint behavior in the Internet open market due to the rapid growth of Internet fashion markets and increased consumer dissatisfaction that has increased post complaint behavior. This study identifies the effect of perceived justice on consumer trust and repurchase intention, it then compares the effects of perceived justice on consumer trust and repurchase intention among the different types of dissatisfied groups. The respondents were 369 consumers who experienced dissatisfaction in the Internet open market. The data were analyzed by factor analysis, path analysis, ANOVA, cluster analysis using SPSS win 12.0 and Amos 7.0. In the research model, three components of perceived justice: distributive justice, procedural justice, and interactional justice have significant effects on trust. Trust has a positive effect on repurchase intention. Dissatisfied consumers were clustered into three types of those dissatisfied with 1) shopping mall/shipping, 2) service, and 3) products. The consumer groups classified by the types of dissatisfaction showed different effects of perceived justice on trust and repurchase intention in the Internet open market.

Jun, Dae-Geun ; Kim, Sae-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 575~587
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.575
This study identifies the effects of the perceived risk by adolescents on fashion brand conformity for peer groups. Perceived risk, self-esteem, and gender were adopted as variables in order to analyze conformable fashion brand behavior with peer group consideration. A quantitative survey used 672 questionnaires from male and female students between the ages of 14 and 18. The data were analyzed using factor analysis and regression analysis. The results are as follows. First, the dimensions of the brand conformity and perceived risk were revealed. The brand conformity dimensions were normative, informational, and identificational conformity. The perceived risk dimensions were socio-psychological, economic, exchange-refund, performance, management, and fashion risks. Second, fashion (+) and performance (-) risk significantly affected three types of brand conformity. In addition, socio-psychological and economic risk positively affected informational brand conformity. Third, there were more factors of perceived risk that affected brand conformity in the highly self-esteemed group and in the female adolescent group.

Sung, Ok-Jin ; Yang, Chung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 588~596
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.588
This study suggest the size designation and standard nude size in relation to upper and lower garments for casual clothing brands targeting men aged 25 to 34. The nude size designation of upper garments was set at intervals of 5cm based on the bust (97cm). The clothing industry has used different nude size and designations; therefore, the following measurements were established to correspond to each other: bust 87cm- designation 90, bust 92cm- designation 95, bust 97 cm-designation 100, bust 102cm- designation 105, and bust 107cm- designation 110. The nude size designation of lower garments was set at intervals of 2cm based on the waist circumference (omphalion) and the nude size; the clothing designations were used equally. In addition, the standard nude size for upper and lower garments was set at intervals of bust (97cm) and of waist circumference (82cm), respectively, in order to suggest a detailed size.
A Study of Trompe l`oeil Expressions in Modern Fashion - With a Special Reference to Those Since 2000 -
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 597~605
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.597
This study is about the expression types and characteristics of Trompe l`oeil in modern fashion. The study defines the concept of Trompe l`oeil, examines the Trompe l`oeil in the surrealist works from which the Trompe l`oeil derives from, and analyzes the works that have emerged since 2000. The study used a collection of magazines such as Vogue, Gap, Fashion News, and the Internet. According to the findings, the expression types of Trompe l`oeil in modern fashion were seen in the human body, the wearing style, the details, and accessory effects of clothes. The modern fashion design using the Trompe l`oeil based on such external expressions was characterized by the following: first, the fashion design destroyed the concept of common sense and expressed the purity of the human spirit by revealing the human body hidden in clothes from the combination of clothes and the human body with surrealism. Second, the details or accessories of clothes were printed or painted as if they existed. Pleasure was expressed by applying Trompe l`oeil to the wearing methods and forms of clothes through the optical illusion of materials or colors. Third, the effects of an optical illusion were displayed by transforming and distorting the wearing style and reversing the front, back, exterior and interior of clothes; this optical illusion characterized the deconstruction expressed through the transformation of ideas.

This study investigates the flow that customers experience when they participate in a design process for the mass customization of apparel products according to participation level and individual personalities. In addition, how the flow influences the satisfaction and final purchase intention is also examined. The subjects were 600 female consumers. The following results were found: First, the level of mass customization was higher, the enjoyment, concentration, product satisfaction, and total satisfaction were higher. Second, the paths of `participating ability`
`satisfaction` `final purchase intention` were significant. The process satisfaction had a more significant influence on the final purchase intention than the product satisfaction. Finally, the participation ability had a moderating effect for the flow experience according to the level of mass customization.
A Comparative Study on the Tailored Collar Patterns of Women`s Jackets - Focus on Clothing Construction Textbooks -
Jeong, Hwa-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 617~627
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.617
This study selected and compared 7 tailored collar making factors from 15 clothing construction university textbooks. According to the results, in 15 clothing construction textbooks, the neckline of a tailored collar was drawn at the same length as the back neck circumference of the bodice and the length of collar stand was 3cm in 10 textbooks. In addition, the length of the collar laying varied between 2cm and 4.5cm regardless of the width of the upper collar or the textile thickness. In 7 out of the 15 textbooks, the gorge line of the collar was drawn by illustrating the collar pattern on the bodice based on the roll line and then copying it symmetrically. On the other hand, the pattern of upper collar was made in 5 ways; and 2 books did not give any explanation in the sections dealing with patterns or sewing. In addition, 6 textbooks explained that inner and outer collars are sewn with a difference. The lapel pattern of the facing part was made in 4 ways; in addition, 3 textbooks did not provide an explanation and 4 books explained that the difference is given in the sewing. The textile thickness and elasticity need to be considered in collar pattern making; however, they were not specifically mentioned in most of the textbooks.
A Study on Conspicuous Consumption and the Purchasing Motives, Selection Criteria, Satisfaction of Collaborated Fashion Products
Choi, Jung-Won ; Chang, Mi-Soon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 628~641
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.628
This study investigates the relevance among the clothing purchase motivations, selection criteria, customer satisfaction of collaborated fashion products, and conspicuous consumption by adults located in the cities of Seoul and Incheon who have experience in collaborated fashion product shopping. The results are as follows: 1. Conspicuous consumption was identified with three factors: symbol of position, pursuit of fashion brand/quality, keeping up appearance. Customers were segmented into two subdivisions of a lowly involved group with conspicuous consumption and a highly involved group with conspicuous consumption. 2. Clothing purchase motivations with collaborated fashion products were identified with two factors of esthetical value and reasonable ostentation. Selection criteria with collaborated fashion products were identified with the two factors of extrinsic attributes and intrinsic attributes. Customer satisfaction was identified with one factor. 3. Highly involved group toward conspicuous consumptionpursued more into esthetics value, reasonable ostentation and considered more into extrinsic attributes through collaborated fashion products than the lowly involved groups. Customer satisfaction of a highly involved group toward conspicuous consumption was higher than the lowly involved group. 4. The symbol of position had a positive relationship and the keeping up appearance had a negative relationship in regards to both the relevance of conspicuous consumption and the clothing purchase motivations, selection criteria, and customer satisfaction of collaborated fashion products.
A Study on the Development of Wheelchair Safety Clothing for the Disabled Elderly
Yun, Mi-Yeong ; Choi, Hei-Sun ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 642~652
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.642
This study examines the inconveniences and problems of established safety-equipment by investigating the actual conditions for elderly people who use welfare services such as wheel chairs provided by care institutions. Suggestions will be made on how to improve the function and convenience of use to suit the needs of the elderly and how to create beautiful wheel chair safety-wear. Medical treatment helpers for the elderly were surveyed about the wearing conditions of wheel chair safety equipment. The present wheel chair safety equipment was shown to be aesthetically unpleasant; in addition, feelings of restriction and unpleasantness were noted (concerning the wearing of the equipment). In addition, there was no feeling of fixed stability. The wheel chair safety-wear that has been designed reflects the inconveniences and problems of current wheel chair safety equipment in material, design, and patterns along with the results of those surveys. Both objective and subjective tests compared the manufactured safety-wear with current equipment. According to the results, the new safety-wear is superior than existing ones.

Mun, Mi-Hwa ; Kang, In-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 653~662
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.653
This study investigates the effect of particle size on the detergency of particulate soil using an
particle as the model. Monodispersed spherical
particles were prepared by the hydrothermal aging of an acidic
and HCl solution. The
-potential of PET fiber was measured by the streaming potential method. The potential energy of interaction between the particle and fiber was calculated using the heterocoagulation theory for a sphere-plate model. The
-potential of PET fiber and potential energy of interaction between particles and fiber increased with a decreasing particle size in a DBS solution. However, in the nonionic surfactant solution, the
-potential signs of PET fiber and
particles were (-) and (+), respectively; there was no repulsive power between the particles and substrate. The adhesion of particles to the fabric increased with increasing particle size in the anionic surfactant solution and their removal from the fabric increased with a decreasing particle size. The adhesion of particles to the fabric and their removal from the fabric was biphasic with a maximum and minimum at 0.1% concentration of the surfactant solution. In the nonionic surfactant solution the adhesion of particles to fabric and their removal from the fabric were greater than the ones in the anionic surfactant DBS solution.

DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.663
This study analyzes how the relationship marketing implement factors of masstige fashion brands influence the trust, satisfaction and repurchase intention of consumers. The survey was conducted from October
in 2008 with 330 responses used in the data analysis. The statistical analysis methods were frequency analysis, factor analysis, reliability analysis, and multiple regression analysis. The results show that the relationship marketing implement factors of masstige fashion brands were customer orientation, salesperson expertise, communication, brand expertise, and inducement. The relationship marketing implement factors of masstige fashion brands influence the trust and satisfaction of consumers. The trust and satisfaction of consumers influence the repurchase intention in the masstige fashion brands.

Suh, Chu-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 673~685
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.673
This study evaluates the fitness of brassieres through size measurement, comparative pattern analysis, cross section map analysis, 3-D shape analysis number, and fitness evaluation with a focus on domestic and overseas brands. Experimental brassieres were selected as mold brassieres of 3/4 cup in 75A size that is considered a popular design. Brands of selected brassiere were 2 domestic brands (A, B), 1 licensed brand (C), and 2 overseas brands (D, E). Subjects were 8 women in their early 20`s. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, analysis of variance, reliability analysis, and factor analysis. The results were as follows; the size and pattern of brassieres showed a difference by each brand even though brassieres are the same design. In the wearing effect of brassieres, overseas brand brassieres played a major role in the breast-up effect, but they were not appropriate for the somatotype of Korean women. Domestic brand brassieres showed the volume-up effect, that was confirmed by the increasing bust circumference, bust depth when subjects wore it. In addition, the licensed brand brassieres showed the correction effect of body shape. Therefore, when purchasing a brassiere, the most important condition is to consider the individual characteristics of the somatotype. The results of factor analysis through a functional evaluation show that wearing satisfaction, size satisfaction, and the position of the bust point were important factors for fitness satisfaction and purchase.

DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.686
This study analyzes how the eco-friendly attitude and benefits pursued in clothing influence the purchase satisfaction of eco-friendly consumers for infants and children`s underwear. The survey was conducted from June
in 2009, and 303 responses were used in the data analysis. A frequency analysis, factor analysis, reliability analysis, and multiple regression analysis were conducted for the statistical analysis. The results show that the eco-friendly attitude is classified by environmental concern, awareness of environmental consumption, and participation in the environmental movement. The benefits pursued in clothing are classified by fashion pursuit, brand pursuit, functional pursuit, personality pursuit, and economical pursuit. The awareness of the environmental consumption factor in the eco-friendly attitude influences the purchase satisfaction of eco-friendly consumers for infants and children`s underwear. The fashion, brand, functional, and personality benefits pursued in clothing effect the purchase satisfaction of eco-friendly consumers for infants and children`s underwear.

In this study, shrinkage, water contact angle, alkali solubility, and the dyeability of wool fabric treated with papain at the optimal activity condition were measured to confirm the effect of papain treatment. The shrinkage and water contact angle of wool fabric treated with papain decreased more than the untreated wool; however, the alkali solubility and the dyeability increased. L-cysteine was more active than EDTA as an activator of papain.
A Qualitative Study of Offshore Outsourcing by Korean Clothing Companies
Hong, Kyung-Hee ; Kim, Young-Mi ; Yang, Jin-Ok ; Lee, Ji-Soo ; Lee, Yoon-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 34, issue 4, 2010, Pages 703~714
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2010.34.4.703
This study assumes that Korea`s offshore outsourcing is used for diverse purposes such as designing, the supply of raw and subsidiary materials, production, and manufacturing. The purpose for production exists in the beginning stages of development, because it would have grown in scope since the 1990s when offshore outsourcing began in earnest. In this study, in-depth interviews were conducted with 24 firms with an annual production capacity of more than 200,000 pieces among clothing brands for the domestic market, clothing exporters, and promotion agencies. The interviews took place from December 18, 2008 to January 30, 2009. The interviewees were limited to the officers who had the authority to select manufacturers and decide on production volumes. Responses from the in-depth interviews were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed. The study results are summarized as follows: First, Korean clothing companies were found to rely on offshore outsourcing (China, North Korea, Vietnam, and Indonesia). Second, offshore outsourcing focused on the purposes for production; however, even fabrics were often outsourced in the case of production in China. Third, the interviewed firms mentioned cost savings, production cost reduction, and labor cost reduction most frequently as the main reasons for offshore outsourcing. Fourth, customs duties were considered most important in offshore outsourcing. Finally, when deciding on foreign manufacturers for offshore outsourcing, the surveyed clothing companies were found to: select manufacturers after market research in their outsourced countries, maintain existing contracts, or consider design capabilities and price quotations of candidate manufacturers.
