Camouflage
CAMOUFLAGE is the use of any combination of materials, coloration, or illumination for concealment, either by making animals or objects hard to see (crypsis ), or by disguising them as something else (mimesis ). Examples include the leopard 's spotted coat, the battledress of a modern soldier , and the leaf-mimic katydid 's wings. A third approach, motion dazzle, confuses the observer with a conspicuous pattern, making the object visible but momentarily harder to locate. The majority of camouflage methods aim for crypsis, often through a general resemblance to the background, high contrast disruptive coloration , eliminating shadow, and countershading

Cloak
A CLOAK is a type of loose garment that is worn over indoor clothing and serves the same purpose as an overcoat ; it protects the wearer from the cold, rain or wind for example, or it may form part of a fashionable outfit or uniform . Cloaks have been used by myriad historic societies; many climates favor wearing a full-body garment which is easily removed and does not constrain the wearer with sleeves. Over time cloak designs have been changed to match fashion and available textiles . Cloaks generally fasten at the neck or over the shoulder, vary in length, from hip all the way down to the ankle, mid-calf being the normal length. They may have an attached hood and may cover and fasten down the front, in which case they have holes or slits for the hands to pass through. However, cloaks are almost always sleeveless

A SMOCK-FROCK or SMOCK is an outer garment traditionally worn by rural workers, especially shepherds and waggoners , in parts of England and Wales from the late 18th century. Today, the word smock refers to a loose overgarment worn to protect one's clothing, for instance by a painter.

Blouse
A BLOUSE (English: /blaʊz/ , /blaʊs/ , or /bluːz/ ) is a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women, and children.

Today, the word most commonly refers to a girl's or woman's dress shirt but can also refer to a man's shirt if it is a loose-fitting style (e.g. poet shirts and Cossack shirts). Traditionally, the term has been used to refer to a shirt which blouses out or has an unmistakably feminine appearance. The term is also used for some men's military uniform jackets

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Social Aspects Of Clothing
DRESS CODES are written and, more often, unwritten rules with regard to clothing . Clothing, like other aspects of human physical appearance , has a social significance, with different rules and expectations applying depending on circumstance and occasion. Even within a single day an individual may need to navigate between two or more dress codes: at a minimum those that apply at their place of work and those at home; usually this ability is a result of cultural acclimatization. Different societies and cultures will have different dress norms, although Western styles are widely accepted as valid. The dress code has built in rules or signals indicating the message being given by a person's clothing and how it is worn

Silk
SILK is a natural protein fiber , some forms of which can be woven into textiles . The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture ). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism -like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles , thus producing different colors. Silk
Silk
is produced by several insects, but generally only the silk of moth caterpillars has been used for textile manufacturing. There has been some research into other types of silk, which differ at the molecular level
