Androgynous + Tomboy Clothing Sources

Sometimes ya just have to dress beyond the binary.

At The Closet Feminist, we’ve bemoaned the lack of butch style inspiration in mainstream fashion magazines, and elsewhere we’re keeping track of Canadian designers who are knocking it outta the park in terms of androgynous offerings. When a local mall chain seems to start offering an LGBTQ2S-friendly campaign, we’re taking notice.

As such, it’s no surprise that we’ve been keeping a close eye on all the tomboy-friendly retailers that have cropped up in the last year. Here’s a roundup of our faves.
