Like I Said


Blogger Peter Lappin of Male Pattern Boldness fame had a real life experience that affirmed some of what I wrote about in my Thursday Future Dressing post.

Here is the link to the Peter's pertinent post and I urge you to read it, but here are a couple of takeaways from the post which told about his visit to a Comme des Garcons store in the city to research his men's skirt sewing project

"Friends, I couldn't even tell which areas in the store were for men and which were for women..."

"The young male sales assistant who helped me was wearing the skirt posted up top, only with black leggings (not quite tights), colored socks and black shoes."

Admittedly, this occurred in New York City and you will not have the same experience in a clothing store in downtown Podunk (or the Podunk mall). But it's a start!

  1. I'll be debuting my skirt muslin this week. Stay tuned, Stana! ;)

  2. Here's a direct quote from the shopping site, Racked, describing the Dover Street Market, which carries Comme des garcons and other fashion-forward designers:

    "The market is curated in a way that is meant to encourage androgynous dressing. Shoppers should feel no large divide between menswear and womenswear, and instead focus on the beauty of every piece. It's a safe haven for ladies who love to wear oversized trousers and tuxedo jackets, as well as men who enjoy wearing skirts and dresses. That 'wear what you want no matter your gender' attitude is reflected in the way the store is laid out, with no clear separation of womenswear and menswear."

  3. "Student actor" is so cute!


  4. I did not watch the oscars this year but I wonder when trans women who do not totally pass but blend with class (we know what that is) become common place as gay people now find the world. Will be nice when people talk about your dress and not bat an eye who is wearing it and have great interaction with common folk everywhere, sigh!

  5. Which student is femulating? I.e. Is the girl a boy, or the boy a girl?
    I miss the good ole days when the only ones considered trans were the boys
    Just sayin'

  6. some more femulations from the school.
