I like men’s clothing.
I wish this were my big Ed Wood-like announcement in the form of writing rather than a poorly shot and performed film about transvestism, but it’s not. Everyone in my life has known that I’ve liked men’s clothing for a long time.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve never thought strangely of wearing a bowtie, suspenders or suit. If spotting a colorful tie or loafers while thrift shopping, I must add them to my collection, a collection that also includes top hat (collapsible), fedora, two tuxedo jackets and several fitted pants.
This love of men’s clothing could have come from the fact that my family owned a casual and formal apparel store, but they specialized in women’s clothing, not men’s. My comfort in wearing men’s suits could have been cultivated by my mother’s encouragement to be whatever I wanted to be and not let anyone make me feel bad about myself.
Is it ironic when a number of folks see nothing wrong with a lady wearing mens clothing, but many of those very same people, myself included, cringe when a man wears ladies clothing?
It’s true. However, some people love seeing men in women’s clothing. Rocky Horror Picture Show! I think it’s all about the confidence in how you wear the opposite sex’s clothing.
I’ve been a fan since Annie Hall. Great post, sister. xo
GREAT POST! I love wearing men’s clothing/tomboy style. I have an upcoming post featuring a men’s suit and a sparkly tie. I’ll let you know when it’s up!
