A woman in Essex, England, returned a pink t-shirt as her husband wouldn’t let their son wear it.

The reason? The top would be too pink, according to the man.

The woman, who has not been identified, had purchased the hot pink top for her son from independent company Fred & Noah. Despite loving it, she had to return it.

She shipped the bright fuchsia shirt bearing a giraffe illustration back with a note.

‘It’s a beautiful top but my husband won’t let my son wear it’.

‘We should let children wear whatever they want’

Company director Natalie Reynolds revealed this is not the first time conservative parents have criticized her designs.

Reynolds’ company sells gender-neutral clothes for children. Most items come in several colors, regardless of what is traditionally associated with a particular gender.

The woman launched the company in 2014 and runs it from her home in Hockley, Essex, with her husband Danie.

‘It was a shame to hear the mum wanted to return this top, as she would have loved to dress her son in it but the dad just thought it was too pink,’ she told the Mirror.

‘We think kids should be allowed to wear anything they choose as long as it’s comfy and fun,’ she then added.

‘You’re only small once and we should just let children be little and wear whatever they want, regardless of their gender.’

People commented by posting pictures of their sons wearing pink

The company also posted about the incident on their Facebook page.

‘We had a pink t-shirt returned to us today and the reason stated “Beautiful top but my husband won’t let my son wear it,”’ the post reads.

‘This got me thinking, are we dressing our sons in pink if they want to wear it?’

Customers then replied with a series of pictures of their sons wearing pink tops to show their support.
