shop=clothes only sell unfashionable clothes.

But seriously, shop=clothes is factual whereas shop=fashion is a matter of
appreciation, so I would go with shop=clothes and let subsidiary tags
optionally describe the particular sort of clothes sold.

And then there is shop=boutique which I hate with a particular passion,
not just because is is as subjective as shop=fashion but also because
"boutique" is French for "small shop" and it is therefore used all over
West Africa to tag all sorts of shops...
