We challenge fashion industry norms for what is considered menswear & womenswear and instead focus on creating great fitting clothing that makes you feel comfortable & confident in who you are. Learn more about what makes us, us.
Kirrin Finch is a conscientious clothing company, founded by Brooklyn-based couple Laura Moffat and Kelly Sanders Moffat, that meets the growing demand for gender-defying fashion by creating menswear-inspired apparel designed to fit a range of female and non-binary bodies. The inspiration for the business was borne out of our own frustration at being unable to find clothes that match our personal style. As women who tend to gravitate towards button-up shirts and bow ties, we often find ourselves envying the clothes in the men's section, but are always frustrated because they are not designed to fit a woman's body.
The name, Kirrin Finch, was inspired by iconic fictional tomboys "Georgina Kirrin" from The Famous Five series and "Scout Finch" from To Kill A Mockingbird. Both these characters embrace the tomboy spirit and are not constrained by society's views of how a woman should behave or dress. You'll probably notice that each shirt takes on the name of a tomboy character.

Today, people are questioning traditional notions of gender and embracing the freedom to be themselves. That’s why we created a collection of menswear-inspired button-up shirts that combine the design and aesthetic of menswear with the perfect fit for the female body.
We don’t want you to experience ill-fitting menswear or overly frilly womenswear ever again. That’s why we went through a rigorous process to ensure our customers receive the best fitting garments possible.
The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry, second only to the oil industry. That's why we believe it is essential for our brand to have environmentally sustainable practices.
We think the person making it is just as important as the person wearing it. That's why we scour the globe to find factories with fair labor and ethical manufacturing practices.

Although we don't come from a traditional fashion background, Kelly was a teacher in the NYC public school system and Laura has a Neuroscience PhD and is a former marketing consultant, we are no longer willing to settle for ill-fitting menswear or overly frilly womenswear. So, we decided to join the movement that rejects traditional stereotypes and gives people the freedom to be their true selves.
