John Lewis Gender Neutral Clothes For Kids

John Lewis has decided to sell clothes without labels that have boys or girls on.
So, now there will be a clothing section for children.
This means that if the clothes look ok for your kid, you buy it whether it would have been sold previously for boys only or girls only.
Jeans will be jeans, jumpers will be jumpers.
The jury is out here :lol:

Some clothes are suitable for both girls and boys so why not.
Obviously, if boys are attracted to the dresses and skirts rack, you have a dilemma.
Likewise, if the girls are choosing clothes traditionally wore by boys, what do you do?
I prefer gender identifying clothes rather than gender neutral.
That's my choice.

No big deal really and I can't see too many problems.
Good idea from a man's point of view cos it will be easier to shop for kids clothing.
