Garment appearance or aesthetic quality is one of the most important aspects of garment quality. Aesthetics is a very complicated subject because what one person would define as appealing may not necessarily be another person's view. It is therefore almost impossible to universally define garment aesthetic appeal. Nevertheless, people do have a reasonably common notion or concept of what is good or bad appearance. With the exception of some deliberate use of "puckered" or "wrinkle" surface, nicely smooth and curved garment surface is regarded as desirable. The aim of this study is not to try to define garment appearance, but to try to objectively evaluate garment appearance in terms of the smoothness of surface contours.
