Kenneth Cole Reaction dress shirts

I first found one of their dress shirts at my local thrift shop – it was labelled as a men’s small and I never expected it to fit me. To my surprise they run very small. This means no extra shoulder space and I did not need to roll up the sleeves! They’re overall super comfortable.
It is kind of a designer brand so things are a bit on the pricey side but I will pay that for a shirt that is small enough.

As a very narrow boi, it is almost impossible to find shirts and suit jackets that fit me. This is the only, literally the ONLY place I have ever found that works. They have a “super skinny” style and carry XXS! My entire work/interview/date-night wardrobe is from them. Their stuff is very cute too. Though, I can only vouch for their formal wear, not sure about casual fit.

About Tee See

I’m an early-30s gender-queer trying to figure out how to “grow up” in a world where all physical signs and indications of being an adult seem to require fitting into the gender binary. Androgyny, depending on the place and time you grew up, may have had a place but it always seems end with puberty- leaving many of us stuck in perpetual peter-pan syndrome. There are many things I love about being youthful and I never want to give up “playing” and engaging with nature and using my body to express myself as children often do… but I also want my views and ideas to be taken seriously, I want to enjoy adult sexuality, and I want to feel confidant and comfortable in a business setting. These things have all been difficult to navigate with my gender expression. I’m grateful for this site and people in my community who are talking about related issues- helping me feel less alone.
I have lived in the bay since 2007 and hope to make my home here for a long time. As of Fall 2013, I’m excited to have begun my adventure in graduate school. Yet another game in growing up.
