Try searching clothing by placing the following prefixes:
You will notice that all dot com domain names have been taken already. I registered oclothing.com recently and it was available. To me O can mean different things.
O-Name of a company beginning with letter O
O-Just a word that is brandable to someone.
Clothing is a big market and as of this post Google delivers in quotes 1,350,000,000 results. There are too many companies worldwide operating under this industry and all needs a good and brandable domain name for their business.
Oclothing.Com is a short name, rich in keyword and is made of 9 characters.
Lets see if there are some active sites with regards to the above prefix placements.

From above only few are having websites like Xclothing, Qclothing, Aclothing and few are url forwarders like Mclothing.com.
In my opinion companies who are in clothing business and their company or brand names starting with that particular letter should acquire the relevant domain name and use it appropriately. for example the domaintools with some filtering shows around 1500 results of websites starting with letter ‘O’ and having clothing in their domain name. By acquiring the relevant short and memorable oclothing.com they can use it to 1.redirect it to their own website 2.Make a new website and promote their other other brands.
And, this similar strategy may be other companies too can apply by picking up relevant prefix/letter+clothing domain name and use it for their own benefit.
