When deciding what to wear, we normally have to consider several things, such as color and combination of clothes, as well as situations that might change every day, including the weather, what to do, where to go, and whom to meet with. Trying on many possible combinations can be very tedious; thus, computer support would be helpful. Therefore, we propose suGATALOG, a fashion coordination system that allows users to choose and coordinate clothes from their wardrobe. Previous studies have proposed systems using computer images of clothes to allow users to inspect their clothing ensemble. Our system uses pictures of users actually wearing the clothes to give a more realistic impression. suGATALOG compares several combinations by swapping top and bottom images. In this paper, we describe the system architecture and its user interface, as well as an evaluation experiment and a long-term trial test to verify the usefulness of the system.
