Abstract or Summary
  • The primary objective of the present research, which investigated consumer behavior regarding the storage of clothing items no longer worn, was to develop a model that describes and explains the process of consumer clothing inventory management. Data were collected via in-depth interviews of twenty-two adult female and male informants. Guided by a moderately structured interview guide, informants displayed and discussed clothing items they wear and clothing items they no longer wear. For items they wear, informants explained how they feel while wearing them, as well as why they might stop wearing them and what they might do with the items. For items they no longer wear, but still have, informants explained how they felt while wearing the items, why they stopped wearing the items, why they still have the items, and how they would feel if the items disappeared. For items they no longer have, they explained how they felt while wearing the items, why they stopped wearing the items, how they disposed of the items, and how they felt about their disposal decisions. Data show that consumers’ clothing inventories can be categorized accordingly: active, permanent inactive, temporary inactive, invisible inactive, and transitional inactive. Within permanent inactive inventories were items that informants believed they would never dispose; such items often symbolized various connections and/or held hedonic value. Within temporary inactive inventories were items that informants believed they would eventually dispose; such items were often stored because informants were waiting to find future opportunities to use the items or the best disposal outlets. Occasionally, clothing items were invisible to informants, made so either unintentionally or intentionally. Clothing items within transitional inactive inventories were those items that informants had taken psychological and behavioral steps towards disposing of, yet still retained possession. Data collected were used to develop a Consumer Clothing Inventory Management Model. The model explains what causes consumers to store versus dispose of inactive clothing items and provides direction regarding the identification of ways to encourage consumers to pass inactive items on to others who can use them.
