The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

This study, using 3D measurements, aims to develop a neck model for a particular market segment in China- male professionals age 25-30, whose work and lifestyles make them vulnerable to neck morphological tensions and changes (Fox news., 2014). Therefore, there are two objectives for this study: 1) to investigate the characterization of Chinese male professionals’ neck by using 3D neck measurements; and 2) to build a 3D neck model that can provide a theoretical reference for an optimal neckline design from an ergonomic point of view.
