Interview With Queer Clothing Company Kirrin Finch

"We didn’t grow up wanting to be fashion designers. We were both tomboys, and only really cared about making sure our outfits allowed us to ride bikes and climb trees. But as we grew up, it became obvious that mainstream retailers didn’t cater to us. It was always a hunt to find something that felt right, and we were often forced to make the choice between poorly-fitting menswear and super feminine womenswear."

Gender in Fashion Is Dead

"A lot of tomboys gravitate toward menswear clothes, but menswear isn't fit for people who have a bust or hips," said Laura Moffatt. She and her wife, Kelly, started a company called Kirrin Finch for clothes that look traditionally male, but are cut for women's bodies. It's a labor of love for the couple—and it would have to be, given that their backgrounds have little to do with fashion. Laura, who holds a PhD in neuroscience from NYU, worked in the pharmaceutical industry for ten years before starting the company, and Kelly was a teacher and elementary school librarian.

Women's Tighty Whities and Men's Hot Pink Briefs: Gender-Bending Fashion Goes Mainstream

"Several new companies are building their businesses around the mainstreaming of androgynous clothing, no longer a passing fad....Brooklyn-based couple Kelly and Laura Moffat saw a need among women for masculine shirts.

Fashion Brands Are Finding New Markets In Gender-Neutral Clothing

"Growing up, Laura Moffat gravitated toward the chic menswear of British designers Ben Sherman and Ted Baker, but she was never quite able to recreate the looks herself. Women’s button-down shirts were too short and too fitted, with floppy collars ill-suited to the bow ties the self-described “dapper, androgynous woman” liked to wear. And while men’s shirts were sturdy enough, they simply didn’t fit her female form."

How These Entrepreneurs Started An Apparel Line With No Experience

"When I think of all the things I wanted to be as a little girl, fashion designer was not on the list. But when my wife and I took a sabbatical from work and travelled around the world, we came up with the wild idea of starting a fashion business."

Breaking Gender Barriers: Ethical Menswear for Everyone

"Make these [Kirrin Finch] button down tops work for summer by rolling up your sleeves and pairing them with Bermuda length shorts and boat shoes or sandals. If it’s really warm, then wear it unbuttoned layered over a thin tee or tank. These would also work great paired with khakis in a business casual setting, for a brunch date, or as a wedding guest."
