  social status as well as expression of
  personal taste or style

1/ How do male and female
clothes differ?
2/ What kinds of religious
garments can you name?
        Gender differentiation
• Skirts, dresses and high-heeled shoes are seen
  as women's clothing
• Trousers were once exclusively male clothing
• Male clothes are often more practical
• wider range of clothing styles are available for
  females
• Males are typically allowed to bare their chests
  in a higher number of public places.
• Men may sometimes choose to wear men's
  skirts such as togas or kilts
        Clothing and religion
Islam
• women have to wear hijab - the head
  covering, and modest Muslim styles of
  dress in general
• covering everything except the face and
  hands in public
• Muslims usually wear white
  robes and a cap during
  prayers
• Jewish male's yarmulke and tallith
Yarmulke - skull cap worn by Orthodox
  Jewish men at all times as a sign of
  humility before God. The less orthodox
  only cover their heads for prayer.
Tallith - is a Jewish prayer shawl
  worn during the morning prayers
  on weekdays, Shabbat and
  holidays
 Different ways of wearing clothing
1/ draping the cloth - the cloth remains
  uncut, and people of various sizes can
  wear the garment (for example the
  Scottish kilt).
  The clothes may be tied up, or pins or
  belts hold the garments in place.
2/ cutting and sewing the cloth
                  Materials
• Leather                 •   rayon,
• Furs                    •   viscose
• weaved and woven        •   silk
  materials               •   nylon
• natural and synthetic   •   cashmere,
  fabrics                 •   lycra,
• cotton                  •   denim,
• polyester               •   corduroy
• wool                    •   satin.
            Fashion design
• influenced by cultural and social attitudes
• varies over time and place
• Fashion designers attempt to satisfy
  consumer desires and wishes
• They must consider who will wear the
  garment and the situations in which it will
  be worn
• Some clothes are made specifically for
  an individual - using time-consuming,
  hand-executed techniques
• Ready-to-wear clothes - are made in
  small quantities to guarantee exclusivity,
  rather expensive.
• Mass market - producing clothes in large
  quantities and standard sizes, use
  cheaper fabrics and simpler production
  techniques done by machine. The end
  product is sold cheaply.
                Accessories
• Articles carried rather
  than worn (purses)
• easily removed
  (scarves, glasses),
• worn purely for
  adornment (jewellery)
    Sport and activity clothing
• Most sports require special
  clothing.
• Common sportswear garments:
  short pants, T-shirts, tracksuits,
  and trainers.
• Specialized garments include wet
  suits (for swimming, diving or
  surfing), salopettes (for skiing)
  and leotards (for gymnastics).
• Protective clothing:
  helmets, goggles,
  mouth guards,
  gum shields,
  protective
  underwear, elbow
  guards etc.
    Protective clothing for dangerous
                 activities
•   space suits
•   air conditioned clothing
•   armor
•   diving suits
•   bee-keeper gear

     Ways to maintain clothing
• pounding clothes against rocks in running
  streams
• electronic washing machines
• dry cleaning (dissolving dirt in solvents other
  than water)
• chemical cleaning
• Ironing - before they are worn to remove
  wrinkles
• Once clothes is laundered and ironed, they are
  usually hung on hangers or folded,
                 Mending
• Today clothing is considered a
  consumable item.
• Mass-manufactured clothing is less
  expensive than the labor required to repair
  it.
• Many people will buy a new piece of
  clothing rather than expend time mending.
               Recycling
• Used, unwearable clothing was once used
  for quilts, rag, rugs, bandages, and many
  other household uses.
• It is now thrown away in most cases.
• Used but still wearable clothing can be
  sold at flea markets, online auction, or
  donated to charity.
