Fashion categorization 3: A pair of glasses, is a pair of glasses, is a pair of glasses…
Today we will take a look at items that should not be categorized. As a rule you can only sort items in the tree category if there is a suitable category available.
There is for example no space for books, DVDs, etc.
Does that mean that items cannot be categorized if they are not obviously fashion items? NO, because there are categories for different kinds of suitcases or beach towels.
We have compiled a list of special cases here:
1.) Standard glasses to correct eyesight must not be categorized. This also applies when the glasses have a shape that clearly belongs in the sunglasses category (for example pilot glasses).
2.) Functional gear that is worn for sports must not be categorized either. In this case we are referring to clothing that can only be worn for sports activities, for example ski boots, padded cycling trousers or similar.
PLEASE NOTE: Always check whether alleged sports gear (jogging trousers, basketball shorts) are meant to be worn as hip, trendy street style clothing….
3.) Children’s clothing – fashion that is solely for children, must not be categorized. This also applies to clothing that is offered in large children’s sizes and can therefore also be worn by teenagers.
How can you differ between children’s and adult clothing?
- The keywords “Boys”, “Girls”, and “Teens” in the short description of the item provide a good indication.
- Be sure to pay attention to the sizes. The following size chart is not complete but it will give you an idea of the differences:
4.) Special sizes – The fashion that is categorized in this project should address the general public (sizes XS-XL). Therefore fashion that is limited to special sizes should not be categorized. This applies to large sizes as well as petite sizes such as XXS, or maternity wear.
