FUKU

meaning: clothes, yield, serve
服装 == fukusou == clothing
合服 == aifuku == Spring or Fall wear
Origin obscure. Older forms show a boat, and a hand holding a tool or weapon. Present main meaning of 'clothes' is apparently borrowed. Henshall suggests taking this character as 'moon' (月), 'hand', and a 'clothes hoist', and as a mnemonic:  'Servile hand puts clothes on hoist under moon.'
