From left to right: no dimple, small dimple, big dimple. Like Goldilocks.

 

I'm slightly ashamed to admit I prefer undimpled ties...

Love all the tips on tie dimples. I'm going to try it tomorrow and post my result. I'll also for sure check out Sam Hober. 

 

What do you think about the Merch on our Kickstarter? I'm pretty surprised that most of them aren't going like hotcakes. 


I'd be vary of 'shilling' your business so early on in your membership.

 

That said, your merch is 'stuff' not clothing but accessories. Ties and stuff are good, but flasks etc speak to a different 'clientele' so to speak. Your stuff does look pretty good, I have to add.

I did forward your kickstarter to two 'butch' friends that dabble in CM from time to time. I think they like it!

Well. Most of us don't like stickers. And the leather band thing is a little #menswear. I'd like the tie if it weren't for the sewing machines across it. I suspect, depending on who does your suits for you, you'd get a few people in the SFO area biting on the 600 dollars, get a suit. You'd probably want to provide more info on your suit construction though.

 

As far as SF, some good threads to post on/get familiar with:

 

http://www.styleforum.net/t/375309/noodles-good-natured-advice-thread/0_20

Basically a good place to get a bunch of friendly feedback on anything.

For short, easy questions.

If you want to see what passes as "well dressed" around here. All the outfits in this thread have received at least 20 thumbs ("likes") in WAYWRN.

For a very narrow definition of "good"

makes sense -- more traditional menswear, less #fuckyeahmenswear. 

 

Thanks for all the other tips, you and everyone else has been great so far.

TO be honest, some of us don't fit in that category .

Was not aware that was an acceptable thing to say.

At the tailor! I didn't have time to drop it off for awhile. Should be ready this weekend or next week. I think it's going to work out great. Sorry for you but glad for me.


It seems like there a few shops in the Bay Area popping up that are offering custom menswear for women and trans people. Which is great. I've talked with a number of lesbian and trans friends and acquaintances who wanted to add that to their wardrobes or take their style in that direction (or just get a suit or vest and trousers for a wedding!) and it's tough because of size and fit issues. Menswear has so many great features that I think it would be a wonderful thing women and trans people to be able to wear it and have it fit properly.

Depends on the circles you roll in, but there's nothing pejorative about the term when used referring to the fashion leanings of a sub-sub type of queer women. Apologies in advance if it's taken that way. I know/hang out with a ton of queer/lgbt people and it hasn't ever been a bad term unless it's been used as a pejorative.

I think transmen/ftm would also be good clientele for the image these guys are promoting since they seem to cater more to a fit that caters more to a womans body and I know some people that had a pretty hard time finding good clothing when they started transitioning ftm.

 

Edit: Totally agree with what Mr. Six said above!
