Unisex or Gender Neutral Clothing
Anyone else fascinated by this concept? I'm not talking strictly androgynous/tomboy 'borrowed from the boys' or radical fashion statement way but in a more personal sense; seeking out garments that are so timeless and functional to attract and look great on say a lady, her man and perhaps even their kids (shrunken down of course)!


I'm in love with a few key pieces which are decades old and have stood the test of time which both my husband and i rotate out:


90s Timbuk2 bike bag
vintage black canvas Marimekko bag
thrifted no name/ no tag scarf
ancient pajama bottoms
some band shirts from shows we've actually attended


Has anyone found pieces which are so versatile that say you and your man both love and feel comfortable wearing? or come across clothing companies which produce classic either gender styles?

Recently came across this wonderful article by Kate Cavendish in Selvedge magazine, a magazine always brimming with inspiration and thoughtfully written, made and photographed textile fashions
Photographed by Tom Johnson.

Tinker, Tailor, Sister, Maker: Faye and Erica Toodgood's unisex, utilitarian vision:

Miss C on Toogood Clothing for Selvedge Magazine



I've just received PDFs for my Selvedge Magazine story on Faye and Erica Toogood, British sisters who "make" (not "design") a smart line of unisex, utilitarian clothing for their Toogood label.

The outerwear, for instance, is named for different workers--there's the beekeeper, cheesemonger, photographer, etc.--and all garments are made from "honest," authentic fabric like waxed cotton or parachute silk (their grandmother used to stitch her own lingerie from such silk during World War II).

What truly captured my imagination was the Spring 2018 silk J-Cloth print (from the "Domestic"collection; not pictured). Did or do any readers use J-Cloths to clean with? I remember them well from my childhood on Prince Edward Island, and wearing that print would bring back fond memories of my mum and grandmother's countertops.

And I really, truly did resist a pun while writing this story until the very last line, but, well, it was Toogood not to use. Happy New Year!
