Abstract

Little is known about how men from Asia living in Western countries negotiate their identities through clothing choices. Given the fact that Asian men whose ideals images, norms, fashion styles, and appearance may differ considerably from the dominant Western culture (Watt & Ricciardelli, 2012), they may experience the process of identity negotiation living in the U.S. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine psychological aspects of clothing practices among Korean male college students in the U.S. using a qualitative research method.
