Direct approach, interaction with volunteers and a specially made shirt to study the influence of races, height, weight and age to the wearing ease of clothing pattern, were used in this work. Two groups of volunteers have participated in the process of the research: group 1) 43 Chinese volunteers from the Zhejiang Fashion Institute of Technology (ZFIT) and group 2) 25 Turkish volunteers from Istanbul Technical University (ITU). Both groups went through the same procedures which were: step 1) taking upper body measurements; step 2) choosing the majority group of volunteers by the mean value of the age, weight and height and step 3) trial wearing and questionnaire. Trial shirts in the research were made of 100% plain weave cotton of 139 g/m2, thickness 0.43 mm, warp 26/cm, weft 24/cm. Results were compared and discussed.
