There used to be men and women, but that looks to be falling apart.
And with it will surely go men’s and women’s clothing.
To a degree, we’re already there:

Hence, an employee’s complaint against Alaska Airlines.
A flight attendant’s decrying discrimination of those “who do not conform to gender stereotypes.”
On June 4th, “ACLU LGBT Project” attorney Joshua A. Block fired off a letter to the company’s senior vice president on behalf of Justin Wetherell.
“Justin’s gender identity is non-binary,” the missive makes clear, and “Justin’s gender expression is fluid.”
And this just in: Justin’s not just in a plane at work. He/she/they’s not only a flight attendant, but an instructor.
When working as the latter, Justin gets to gear up with “appropriate business attire while dressing and grooming in a manner that is neither typically male nor female.”
However, being in planes is plain problematic:
Alaska Airlines requires Justin to adhere to an inflexible uniform policy that forces employees to conform to rigid gender stereotypes.
Don’t assume Alaska’s frozen in time: It allows transgender individuals to dress according to the sex of their self-perception.
Nonetheless, Justin doesn’t consider themself one of those selves.
[A]laska Airlines requires all employees to conform to either the “male” or “female” category.
What if your arms are female, but your legs are male? What if your neck feels feminine, but your feet manifest as macho?
At the moment, you’re out of luck with Alaska:
[F]light attendants cannot mix and match “male” uniform pieces and “female” uniform pieces. For example, people wearing the “male” uniform are not allowed to wear pieces from the “female” uniform, such as the scarf or skirt. And people wearing the “female” uniform are not allowed to wear pieces from the “male” uniform, such as a tie. This also applies to articles of clothing that exist in both uniform lines, but in different cuts or styles.
And grooming standards? Inequitable:
Male: Hair can be long but must be pulled back at all times
