Proposal ?

[german] Hallo Head, da Du keine valide E-Mailadresse hinterlegt hast, muß ich diesen Weg wählen: Sehe ich das richtig, daß es zu diesem Tag kein Proposal gegeben hat?

[english] Hello Head, because you do not have valid e-mail address stored, I have to choose this way: Do I see correctly, that there was no proposal to this tag?

Second hand?

This page says second hand clothes should be tagged as shop=second_hand while that page tells to use shop=clothes ("more specific"). I agree, more detail is needed, because shop=second_hand could be computer, book, whatever. Stats:

  • shop=second_hand : 541 (don't know if they are clothes)
  • shop=clothes : 15650 (don't know if they are second hand) (I use this tag)
  • clothes=second_hand : 2

These tags don't give option to tag a second hand computer shop, for example. I would propose a second_hand=yes tag that can be applied on anything, without reserving the place from actual detail value.

Suggest adding clothes=accessories

Somebody asked the question 'Which tag to use for accessorise shop?'. "Accessorize" is a chain of shops throughout the UK selling fashion accessories, i.e. necklaces, bangles, earrings, scarfs, ties, hat, handbags and other bits of fashion extras. I've recommended mapping this as shop=clothes, clothes=accessories, name=Accessorize so I guess I should suggest we add it here -- Harry Wood 21:22, 3 January 2012 (UTC)


The wiki discourages to use clothes=shoes. I think this does not work properly in case of multiple values at clothes=* e.g. clothes=suits;fashion. What if a shop sells besides suits and fashion shoes, too? I prefer to use shoes at clothes, since otherwise it is not possible to provide any tagging (shop=shoes not possible, because shop=clothes already exists). --U715371 (talk) 10:59, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Suggestion for evening dresses

I found that shops, where wedding clothes are sold, do often sell evening dresses, too. But I guess that those items are sold at many other places, too. Does it make sense to you to use a tag like clothes=evening_dresses?--U715371 (talk) 06:30, 22 August 2016 (UTC)


I suggest to add this tag for place where you can print on your clothes (tshirt, hat, ...)
