androgynous brands

Michael Stillwell

One of the greatest things about clothes is this: there aren’t actually any rules. If a man puts a dress on, it won’t burst into flames—it’ll just look good. It’s a simple revelation that’s taken a while (as in, centuries) for society as a whole to get into the idea. But as the line between “men’s” and “women’s” fades from hazy to nonexistent, the concept of androgyny gets harder to pin down. By definition, the category refers to the middle between two poles; once those poles come together, where’s the middle?

It was previously easy to picture a selection of androgynous clothing (think structured suits, loose shirts, jeans). But today, androgyny could apply to a panoply of interconnected, yet distinct, approaches to fashion. Here, a list that attempts to offer something for everyone, whether you’re looking for “men’s” silhouettes that flatter curves, or a brand that eschews the concept of gender altogether.
