clothes=general or clothes=yes?

& there's also myriads of men;women;children, women;children;men,
women;babies;children & every other possible combination you could ever
imagine (or create by a typo!)

Yeah, 230k shop=clothes but only 20k of all "types" of clothes combined,
then 7000 =fashion & 15000 =boutique, but from the comments here, you have
to wonder how many of those "boutiques" are actually selling high-level
(very expensive!) clothing?
