The coat of many colours is one of the most widely worn pieces of clothing in the world.
But according to new research, men are the ones who don’t wear it as much as women.
“The coat is not that popular among men, so we didn’t know that before,” says Dr Tae-Won Lee, a professor of social psychology at the University of South Korea and one of its leading experts on gender.
“But we found that men don’t use it as often as women.”
Men do use the coat when they want to get away from their wives, but they’re not as often seen in public wearing it.
“They’re more likely to use it in private when they’re trying to look like they don’t have a wife or a partner,” he says.
The coat has become a symbol of independence for women in the west, especially in the US, where men are more likely than women to be carpenters, construction workers and taxi drivers.
But Lee says this may not be the case in Korea, where women dominate construction, banking and retail industries, and men dominate manufacturing.
“This is an issue that has been around for many years,” he said.
“In the United States and other western countries, the coat of most colors is seen as an expression of independence, independence of the family, and of independence from a patriarchal society.”
We think that in Korea it is a symbol for freedom and equality.
“The coat of more colours was invented in China, which is home to one of Asia’s largest male-dominated populations, and it was first worn by Chinese men in the 1960s.
Lee says that when the Korean men and women were asked to rank their favourite clothing items, they tended to select the coat over the scarf.”
The coat was a symbol’The researchers analysed data from the Korea-US Friendship Study, a longitudinal study that collects data on Korean, American and international social, economic and political conditions of about 40,000 individuals over a two-year period.””
So I think the coat was more of a symbol and not a style.”‘

“I found that the coat is the most popular style of clothing among both men and men and female and female-to-male and female to male Koreans,” Lee says.
“Men tend to wear the coat more than women do.
So we found the coat as the style of choice of men and also the style that they use for their families.”
The study also found that Koreans also tended to use the cloak more frequently when they were traveling abroad, compared to the US.
“On average, Korean men used the cloak as much when they travelled abroad as women did, and women used the coat less,” Lee said.
But the research team found that when it came to the coats of many different colours, Korean women had a clear preference for wool.
“When we asked women, ‘Which colour do you prefer to wear?’ they said wool, and they said it’s the colour of their children,” Lee told Al, “so the colour is really important.”
The researchers also looked at the coat’s popularity in Korea among women, with Korean women preferring to wear wool over cotton.
“Wool was the most favoured coat among Korean women,” Lee added.
“It was the colour they liked to wear.”
That may be because the colour has a lot of associations with women in Korea.
