The Classification of Clothing

Clothing can be divided into many kinds. There is not a standard to classify clothing. However, there is a noncontroversial classification. It is classified according to the sex. This way can divide clothing into the clothing of male, female, children three types. Actually, according to use, material and style, different kinds of clothing show different styles and features. And different classifications lead to different appellation of clothing. At present, there are several methods that should be followed.

Firstly, according to the base shapes and the structures, clothing can be divided into three types.

The first one is made according to the structure of people. This type usually has two parts. They are upper clothing and lower clothing. The upper one should adapt to the form of human bust, nape and arm while the lower one should be fit into the form of waist, buttocks and leg. What is more, they are must be strict with cutting and sewing. The second one will not have too many restrictions. This type comes of one dress fashion in tropical area. From this point, we can know that they are casual. The last one combines the first one with the second one. It has both advantages of them. Although the tailor of them uses the sample and plane design, they take human being as a center.

Secondly, according to the craftsmanship, the use and the garment material, we can divide them into two main types as well.

In terms of use, the first one is divided into underclothes and over clothes. At the same time, this type also can be divided into social, daily, professional, sports and performance clothing etc. The second one is classified by the garment material and the craftsmanship, such as Chinese clothing, western clothing, embroidery clothing,, knitwear and so on.

Last but not the least, according to the manufacture and the processing characteristic of knitwear, we can divide them into wool knitwear and cotton knitwear. In terms of the garment materials, and spinning craftsmanship, the wool knitwear can be subdivided into many types, such as woolen wear, blended fabric and clothing, nylon clothing and so on.

There are many classifications of clothing, we can not tell you one by one. However, no matter how they classify, they are all just appellations which will not affect our choice. What we care are the comfort and the garment materials, others are not so important.
