Most of their items still fit the same: jeans, shirts, most sweaters, classic suits....not sure what you are referring to. You could be confused by their runway shows, which has a different fit because of the models.

 

@OP

 

The second picture vaguely resembles some Dior Homme campaign photos. This is what I'm talking about

 

 

For the androgynous look, you might want to check out Katherine Moennig in the L Word for some ideas, she has the androgynous look down.

Dior definitely seems to be the way forward.

You might also consider dressing for a slim guy (Items such as double breasted suits, slim fitting trousers) but accentuating more feminine details such as a light scarf or very heavy and high waist suppression. Mens tailoring is essentially about structure and masculinity while women's is about shape and femininity; look for items with more of a shape to them in menswear to achieve a bridge.

Also try searching for the user Uncontrol, he is mockingly referred to as "Angry Transvestite" as many of his casual looks appear to achieve the look that you're going for without necessarily intending to.

I would also second the Preppy look, examine the look-books of UK companies such as Jack Wills and Fat Face for ideas, as well as Polo Ralph Lauren, Gant and many others. That should cover you for casual wear. With regard to formal; Dior Homme is great for super-slim guys like you - and while not overtly feminine, they have an air of elegance so more Oscar Wilde than Elton John. If you're looking to go MTM then look at Thick as Thieves, who disappoint many by cutting too thin for "normal" people to wear, but would suit you down to the ground. Also, you're young so while it may not fall in line with the folks here, look at people like Pete Dougherty for tips - his hyper-fashion mixed with heroin addiction makes him skinny-cool.

On a side note: That was the most deft handling of a troll I've ever seen. You Sir are awarded the Freedom of the Internet nod[1].gif

Wow, what a great video... thank you so much for this.  A bunch of my lesbian friends told me a while back to go for a Katherine Moening look, I'm glad you mentioned this... I had forgotten all about her.  I find her androgyny incredibly attractive, yet remaining clean and stylish at the same time.

Your post was so helpful =)  I am looking at Dior cloths right now, and they are very nice... a little spendy though =)  I think I can recycle my women's jeans into a new wardrobe, since I'm going for the skinny look, and there isn't much difference between each genders skinny jeans except for pocket size. 

 

On a side note:  Thanks =)  When you grow up a small boy that looks like a girl, your only defense is your words and how you convey them.

In the case of steroids, most steroids are typically either another source of testosterone, or another source of protein.  SO, here is Biology 101 for you.  Your testicles produce...?  Testosterone.

NOW, if you introduce testosterone from a foreign source, WHAT will happen after 3 days?  Your testicles will slow down and eventually cease production of testosterone.  NOW, what will happen to your testicles.  The answer is that they will draw up to your testicular cavity, where they use to reside when you were just a little bitty boy, because they aren't producing testosterone anymore.  Now, what happens when you quit introducing the artificial source of testosterone?  Well, your bodies fail safe mechanism kicks back in and starts producing testosterone, thus causing your testicles to regain in size and descend once again from your testicular cavity.  In conclusion, steroids have nothing to do with your penis size, simply your testicle size.  NOW, lets take this one step further.  Your penis is composed of mostly cartilage, and can almost be viewed as a muscle.  Your penis becomes erect by blood flow to the capillaries in this area.  IF your body is not producing an adequate amount of testosterone, and you aren't receiving it from another source (what happens in the first few weeks of getting off testosterone), then your sex drive is lowered.  And like all muscles, if you don't use it, then you lose it.  Lack of blood flow (erections) to the penis will result in temporary shrinkage due to not using it.  However, just like muscles, they will return to the same size.

 

Congratulations, you learned something today =)

 

 

 


You're alright OP. But I will call bullshit on that you can get any girl you want.

Hehe I said any girl I want who isn't looking for a man... and yes, I'll take that bet any day.  When you've spent the last 3 years of your life living as female and using the women's restroom, you learn a lot about them. 

 

Aizan, thank you... Margaret Howell's fashion is amazing... and looking at pics now.   

Maybe I should go down to Saks and ask them to style me, with emphasis on androgyny.... it seems it may be the easiest transition at the moment, that way I don't have to give all my cloths up at once and start a completely new wardrobe.

I agree. He probably has no trouble getting lesbian women. Typical heterosexual women wouldn't find him attractive. No offence.

One small advise don’t go and buy a whole heaps at a time. As you shop over time you will develop a style of your own. If you buy all at once you will end up with a many outfits that you will later find no longer attractive to you.

Even if a bid is placed there is no absolute way to determinate the result, you know that as well as I do hence you accepted the bid without a slight bit of hesitant.

I hate to intentionally drift the subject away from your original topic, but I am rather curious, how the hell does using the women's restroom make you an expert doing what you're claiming you're able to do?

I didn't claim it did, I simply claimed that I have gained insight that I could not have gained otherwise.

Thank you Boswell, you validate my point even more... Stating that I can easily get lesbian women.  My claim was that I could get any girl I want, and lesbians/bi girls are the kinds I want.... Not hetero girls, they drive me nuts. 

My girlfriend identifies as lesbian.

The "kind you want" are ugly anyway, so knock yourself out.

I don't know why you felt the need to bring this up.

Even if your market are lesbian/bisexual girls, you still CAN'T get anyone you want within that demographic. I may agree if you say a large number of them.
Anyways, to achieve that level you may need some fashion advise, and I think this is why you were here for, so let's get you back on topic.

You're a likable kid.  Hope you stick around.

 

I would try a little old school.  Tailored suits with blousy shirts, extremely nipped waist, wide double pleated pants.

 

Think Thin White Duke.

I have been missing a very interesting thread here.

I just want to say welcome VanBurnham.

You obviously are accustomed to living in an 'undefined zone' which makes many people quite uncomfortable.

May I suggest that footwear is one of the primary 'gender determinants' of fashion? I wonder which directions you are leaning in this regard.

Accessories are another obvious item that can be used to either clearly indicate gender or blur the lines according to your choosing.

Do you find you need assistance with understanding what would constitute 'proper' men's clothing - as many here would be very helpful in that regard. I think even if you are choosing not to follow the conventions knowing what they are might be helpful.
