I dunno...I kinda think after a lot of blending & outing...it became kinda popular for women to look more masculine...or men to look more feminine. You can see it on the runways....ďgender fluidityĒ...

I have never bought guyís clothing for myself tho....

They say the men's clothes are cheaper and last longer than women's fashion.

I donít like menís t shirts....the arms are cut way too big & wide...even on small sizes. I like the womenís cut....& I can always find sales for that kinda stuff so I dunno if cost is that different.....

The other dirty little secret about retail apparel by gender --- the men's equivalent might cost less and even be more durable. So if the sizing works out for women, I wouldn't be surprised.

Tees are made out of cotton for men or women....so....the cut is what matters....durability & price are gonna depend on if itís all cotton or a polyester cotton blend....

If you want to dress in more masculine stuff or a looser fit....ok but...thatís personal & I canít see cost or durability as being a reason why IMO......??

Cost and durability can be important if one is on a
budget and therefore unable to purchase new clothing
as frequently.

All tees are made out of cotton or a cotton polyester blend....for men & women so....durability on tees is not gonna be any different....other than the fabric. With sales...at cheap stores....there is not gonna be that much difference on price on items like tees, jeans & stuff....not enough to make a difference to buy masculine looking stuff that is cut way too big...IMO anyways.....but there are other girls that wanna dress more boyish.....just because.....

Not wanting to be a girly girl doesn't make a woman boyish.

Not necessarily. It's all in how you wear it.

I wear men's slim fit velvet blazers with fitted jeans and over the knee boots. Nobody is mistaking me as a man. Are there times when I'm in menswear and look more masculine, absolutely, but in those cases its about function and comfort.

and I'll disagree with you on manufacturing differences regardless of materials used.


My wardrobe ranges with pieces from Bergdorfs and NAP to Old Navy and Target's mens section. I buy what I like and what works for I'm trying to put together.

Looking back, I got some of the most compliments when I wore my husband's custom made button downs. I used to laugh and tell people I stole it from my husband's closet.
