Apparel Search glossary has been compiled
from numerous resources over the past several years. In addition
to receiving definitions from our viewers and friends, we have also compiled
information from various newsletters, magazines, newspapers, advertisements,
lectures, brochures etc. The glossary is also supplemented with
words and definitions from Merriam Webster's Dictionary (Tenth Collegiate
Edition) and Webster's New World Dictionary. In addition, we have
also created words & definitions entirely from our own imagination (we
tried to make them as accurate as possible). In some cases, we have
created single definitions by combining information from various locations.
This has been done to create a broader & more detailed definition.
Due to the fact that this resource is a compilation from literally hundreds
of resources, we can not guarantee the accuracy, spelling , definitions
etc., of any of the items listed on these pages. Please utilize
this resource at your own risk. Do not rely on our definitions
for accuracy. If you have any additional definitions or have
suggestions for updating current definitions, please continue to submit
your comments for review; Add

has become a helpful tool for the apparel industry. Please continue
to send your new definitions and definition revisions.
