Women that like to wear men’s tailored clothing.
Can men’s clothing fit women properly.
Where can a woman find men’s clothing that will fit her?
There are a lot of women who like to wear men’s tailored clothing. They really like the quality, and the look suits their lifestyle. I get a lot of women coming to ROBBIE BROWN (clothing for men up to 5’8”), because their height fits perfectly with the concept of the store.
We stock suits and sport jackets in “extra short” great for women’s that are 5’4” and shorter, and “short” for those 5’5” to 5’8”.
Just like the shorter guy that shops at the store, the proportions fit so much better than so-called regular sizes. Because the neck to waist is shorter, the back of the waist doesn’t bunch up, and along with all the other differences we do to our garments, the fit is surprisingly amazing.
Beside suits and sport jackets, our shirts come in 31” and 32” sleeve lengths, and because the body length on both is shorter, they fit right off the shelf.
There is an extensive selection in our ready to wear fashions, and we also offer expert tailoring for any alterations needed. There is extra fabric left by the seams of the clothing, in case parts of the jacket (ie hips) needs to be let out (and there is no charge for alteration on items sold at regular price). If a woman is buying a suit, and we can’t fit the pant properly (perhaps due to bigger hips or thighs), we can usually get more of the fabric and make the pant, made to measure.
Besides the fit, women are very comfortable shopping at ROBBIE BROWN, because the atmosphere and attitude at the store is very comfortable … and the service (if I may say) is impeccable.
If you want to be really creative (buttons, thread colours, vest style, etc.), we can do our suits, sport jacket, and shirts through our MTM (made to measure) program.
For anyone that may feel uncomfortable, I will gladly see them before or after store hours (just call and arrange a time that is good for you).
So if you are a woman and like to dress in men’s tailored clothing, don’t be shy … drop in.
