Oh, you can also mark clothing "DAD" or whatever (we use our last name since it is different than hers and allows us to pass things down to the siblings at our house)... not only does it make it clear, but maybe makes it less appealing for the other parent to keep it.
We let go of it YEARS ago. I think a child in divorce situation has enough tension in their lives, and we decided not to make a big deal out of clothes, everything we buy always ends up "there", and oh well.. We just used to remind her to bring enough for the weekend, and now she is old enough to do things without reminding. Certain things she keeps here "just in case", but rarely wears them. Other than that - her clothes are mainly at her mom's, whether we bought it or not.
If you are doing it because it is important to you - I'd reconsider, and if the child sees it as an issue, then he/she would have to take some responsibility for bringing the things he/she likes back.
That's what I think...
maybe just try talking? and saying hey dd left fill in the blank clothing at your house could you drop it off?
