Wear; apparel; garment

product made by hand or industrially, used for dressing the figure or parts of the figure. It is not only a protection against harsh weather but also a decoration. We distinguish between many types of clothing, which we divide by the sex it is intended for, the purpose of its use, and its cut: hence we have men's, women's, girls', boys', children's, under-, upper, outer, spring-, summer-, autumn-, winter-, lounge-, home-, protective, work-, occasional, trouser, sleeved, skirt, trunk-covering, one-face, reversible, lined, unlined, padded, unpadded, ready-made, and unfinished wear (clothing), plus clothing accessories. Clothing should be comfortable, practical and elegant. Its design and silhouette are influenced by fashion. Since the beginnings of civilization it has undergone many great changes.
