I don't buy men's clothes, but if I did and started wearing them, I'd still be a woman and feel like a woman because I like being a woman.

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.
So...a cotton tee is a cotton tee...you can find the same materials for men or women....it’s the mans cut I don’t like.....what’s to disagree on about materials?

I dunno why you would choose a man’s blazer....there are so many options for us...even styles that might look more manly-ish. Their wide arms & the fit on everything make it impossible IMO....& I *never* said anyone would mistake you as a man......

I can say I would never shop in the guy’s section.....I wasn’t saying you couldn’t.....shrugs.

I buy men's hoodies because they are generally made of heavier fabric and they're longer than women's. I have no idea who decided it was 'cute' but most of the women's hoodies I try on hardly cover my waist,

I love being a woman too....& going to the guy’s clothing section wouldn’t make me feel like one.......but I love fashion.....

Cropped hoodies are a thing....I love them but I also go the total opposite & buy the super long fashion hoodies for leggings too with the longer sleeves...but that’s all the kinda stuff you won’t find in the boys section. There’s like a zillion styles of hoodies for us.....

Nordstrom Rack has awesome sales too...twice a year...I pick up this stuff kinda stuff for $15....

.
They're not necessarily the same materials, though. Many men's t-shirts are made of a thicker, denser fabric that holds up better in wearing and washing. A lot of women's shirts are made from a flimsy, almost transparent cotton/blend that doesn't hold up and forces women to have to wear a camisole underneath.

BUT you can find 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend in both....so it’s not a reason to buy men’s IMO.....just don’t buy the transparent cheaper blend....

E d i t: It’s the mans cut that makes it impossible to wear......

I always check out the jeans in the men's dept. Wranglers with 28x32 and I'm grabbing them. 28 waist is about the smallest I can find. I wash them in hot water and dry them and they about fit. I've given up on women's pants as they just don't fit me...5'6" with slim hips. And the Hanes colored t-shirts that are sold individually are of better quality in the men's dept IMHO. They wash nice and last longer because the material is heavier.

I've tried on men's jeans before. They didn't fit me well. Although I'm not pear shaped, I have an average shape, I guess you'd say. Whereas men are straight up and down. If I bought jeans to fit the hips, they were too big at the top. And the legs were too big or something; the legs are straight from the hip, while my legs go in slightly on the outside because of the wider hips. I'm not sure, but I think the length was also a bit shorter, but maybe not. (men's legs are shorter proportionally) But I might give it another try. Could've been the brand I was trying on.

Tops - well the male shoulder width is a lot wider than the female's. My shoulders are only about 14 inches from shoulder bone to shoulder bone. A jacket should be about 15" in the shoulder width for me. Men's tops are wider than that. And they're too long for my 5'5" structure.

I suppose a male t-shirt might do well as a nightshirt. I've bought male socks before (I think boys' socks).

Men's clothes sizes are more uniform, better quality, and cost less. I wish they'd fit me. I might give it another try.
