What's your wardrobe status?
« on: May 31, 2018, 09:02:21 pm »
Do you have purely male or female clothes?

I have almost exclusively women's clothes. One item of male clothing I won't be getting rid of anytime soon is my field jacket. I don't wear it but it's a memory I like to keep around.

I have purely male clothes. Some of the female clothes I had left over (either through sentimental value or the initial cost of the item in question) I have taken the time to find "homes" for with those who could use them. Most of the items luckily fit one of my partners and have boosted her wardrobe as a result.

I've transitioned all my clothing to female clothes but I haven't gone shopping since I left high school 3 years ago!
Need a major shopping spree and a style update once I get my augmentation.

Cheers,
Anja

I've got a bit of both, but most of my "guy clothes" are a little androgynous. I was into punk and gothic fashion before I decided to transition, and both styles encourage a sort of in-between look, so a lot of my male wardrobe was bought/made with the intention of looking a little feminine.

After transitioning, I'm thinking I'll want to do basically the same thing, but in reverse--wearing "girl clothes" that look a bit masculine (think chains and spikes and stuff). So I'm planning to just slowly phase out my old stuff with new stuff that's a little more feminine and form-fitting.

A few fancy dresses would be cool too, but I think I'll wait till my body's done shaping itself for that. I'd be heartbroken if I found the perfect dress and only had a chance to wear it once or twice before it stopped fitting.  :)

No guy clothes anymore, not that I had much of those in anycase.

Last autumn when I threw everything away I spend a little time of thinking, how difficult it was for me to even buy guy clothes. Just couldn´t see the clothes on me. As a result, shirts for example that I threw away, were from the late 90´s...believe it or not...

At least they were worth the money  ;D

I've rehomed like 95% of my female clothes.  The few I have are stuff I plan on eventually taking pics of and posting for sale on ebay.  Maybe I can get back some of the money I've spent on buying them. ;)

Funnily enough I had a huge wardrobe re-org last week and whilst I knew my male clothes were outnumbered even i was surprised how few ‘man’ clothes I have left.    We are down to 2 suits and about 5 work shirts.

Skirts, dresses, skinny jeans, leggings, blouses are plentiful.    Guess that answers the question about eventual transition.

I got rid of 99% of my male clothes last year.  I have an extensive wardrobe of gorgeous female clothes, almost all purchased at second-hand stores.

I did keep a handul of male clothes.  One pair of jeans for messy jobs.  My hiking clothes.  I don't do much backwoods or mountain hiking any more, but I do have to walk the dog an hour EVERY day, rain or shine, for which my hiking clothes are most suitable.  They are expensive to replace.

I've donated all my male work clothes and shoes. I've kept a lot of t-shirts, a pair of jeans, some hiking boots basically for garage/yard work/camping. Women's clothes are just not as thick/sturdy. For fun clothes I also kept a lot of my goth wardrobe and have built off of it.

I still need,to do one more donation purge of male clothes I haven't worn in a year that I thought I may still need. Haven't needed them at all!

Unfortunately I still have mostly women's clothes...if you exclude the multitude of unisex tees I've been collecting since I was like 18....But that doesn't really count. I don't have much to wear in general...But probably 90% of my clothes are still fem...not worn, but still in the closet, drawers and floor, because I'm a dumpster fire human.

During my first years out i wore only skirts and dresses and tossed many items I once wore.  I was so ready to break out of my self denial and own my girlhood.  As I became more comfortable with my non binary gender identity it seems clothing lost gender significance and rather than girl/boy clothing it is now just my clothing.  With many moods and a very social life I have more clothes than closet space and now need to reduce the inventory.

I love lace, frills and fine feathers but happy to also have a nice selection for whatever strikes my fancy or need.  While out doing trail and field work levies still protect better than my leggings and tutu!

Much like big shoulders and a penis do not define masculinity, clothing does not reliably proclaim gender.  Girls can go butch and boys can go fem, all good here!

About 95% male clothes, the rest is waiting to get taken to the charity store. I had a lot of unworn stuff

Girl clothes or guy clothes...  Oh My!  Given my status I use the guy clothes a lot more and there are a LOT of them.  I need to go through those and rid out a lot -- some I have not worn in years.  So can go to charity, but a lot would have to go for rags.  The girl clothes are less numerous but are in better shape and get better care.  Some of the girl stuff that the male me got and the female me will NOT wear have gone to charity as well.

The one category where girl things outnumber guy things is shoes.  Go figure.

My warmest coat is also one of the girl pieces.

I'm slowly yet steadily building my female wardrobe.  I'm probably at least 6 months to a year away from going full time.   I stopped wearing male underwear awhile ago.  All the new clothing purchases that I make tend to be either female or unisex clothing. 

With Love,

All fem apart from some T shirts that have hot rod/drag race prints and some VW ones, still have a male coat but the lining is jazzy and its a good bad weather one. Forgot about the work boot socks but then they are uni

All female, except for 1 pair of pants and 2 shirts, both as junk clothes for doing something like painting or whatever. I still have several unisex t-shirts that were bonuses from some kickstarters (MST3k & Rifftrax mostly) and whatnot that are irreplaceable.
The wardrobe is also overwhelming. Especially since moving in with my girlfriend. Thankfully we're the same size (Except in height), so we can share, and the general quantity shouldn't increase all that much.

Sadly mostly male at this point. I've bought some cute tops but I need a lot more! Can male clothes look girly with the right combination and figure? I'm kinda thinking to try this with some of it.
