I don't allow my children to choose clothes that don't match.

I can't stand to see a child running around looking sloppy, mismatched and dirty. I don't let them wear 2 different pairs of shoes or a blue panda shirt with purple penguin shorts or mismatched socks. There is a difference between creative dress and just plain sloppy. Am I going to say something to you about your child dressing like that? Probably not, but I'll be silently judging you about what you allow your (non- special needs) child to walk out of the house and into public wearing.

 It depends on our day.  For instance, if we're going to stay within the development and be at the park, the beach or in our backyard, or even our local small grocery, I don't care what they wear.  Anywhere further and I pick the clothes!

I agree, I make sure my kids match and don't wear anything with holes or stains to school or out and about in town. At home when playing though I don't really care, i would rather them play in clothes that are already stained and have holes that to ruin their good clothes. I do not however judge others for the way there kids are dressed.

Wow. It must be awesome living under your dictatorship. Dirty is one thing, but letting a child learn their own fashion sense is part of early decision making.

I agree with you. I let my kids wear whatever they want around the house, but if we're going somewhere, they have to match.
