Abstract
Fit trial data were collected by CTS (Clothe the Soldier) and DSSPM (Director of Soldier System Project Management) personnel on a sample of 54 men and 25 women from CFB Petawawa. The subjects were measured for height, weight, chest circumference and waist circumference. The subjects were given an initial undergarment size and asked to perform a series of range of motion tests such as reaching overhead, touching toes, etc. Subjects were instructed to try-on neighboring sizes so as to select the best fitting garment. After a trial and error period, subjects settled on their preferred garment size. DCIEM was requested to analyze the results and provide tariff estimates for Land Forces males and females based on these fit trial results. Two methods were used to analyze the data: traditional bivariate classification and multivariate discriminant function analysis. Clothing size classification rules were established form the fit trial results and subsequently applied to the Land Forces 97 anthropometric survey data to provide tariff estimates. Both methods were applied to the fit trial results to generate the best possible tariff estimates.
