Evaluation of Basic Shirt and Pant Fit Using Analytic Hierarchy Process-AHP and 3D CLO for 20-25 Years Bangladeshi Men

Received Date:28 November 2023, Accepted Date:16 March 2024, Published Date:20 May 2024


Background: The proportion of a garment to its body is known as garment fit. To ensure comfort between the human body and clothing, fit is very important. At present, 3D simulation of garment fit has great potential for business purposes. However, in previous analyses, there were expert opinions on manual fit analysis, which is very popular in the industry. Objectives: The main objectives of this research are to ensure manual clothing fits with a live model with 3D CLO software evaluation. Method: In this study, up to 50 textile experts from industries have chosen to analyze the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) to evaluate clothing fit. Findings: In this study, small, medium, and large-sized basic shirts and pants (20–25 years old) have been developed for live model fit evaluation. According to the analytical hierarchy process (AHP), among small, medium, and large-sized basic shirts and pants, one or two sizes of garments have been tested for garment fit evaluations. The results of these fit evaluations are satisfactory, according to 50 textile experts, and are the main output of the 3D CLO software. Novelty: The analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is fully adopted by the Bangladeshi newly developed size chart, which is enhanced by the 3D CLO software.
