You Should Go: Tomboy Tailors Grand Opening Party in San Francisco

Okay, I know this is last minute, but how do you feel about spending part of your Saturday hanging out with well dressed queer people in the Bay Area?

Guys, put the Shane Playlist on, we are going out

My feelings exactly. This is why I feel like all of us should go to Tomboy Tailors Grand Opening Party* today, Saturday February 2, from 2-6pm at 50 Post Street, Level One of Crocker Galleria in San Francisco.

Let me let Tomboy Tailors tell you a little more about their concept while I finish getting ready:

Tomboy Tailors is a bespoke clothier in San Francisco that caters to butch/boi lesbians, female-to-male transgender individuals & people of any identity who like to don tailored menswear or tailored womenswear.

So, Tomboy Tailors is a store for the well-dressed and the ones who love them. Basically, if you dream of well-fitting outfits that understand the awesomeness that is your body, Tomboy Tailors is for you –San Francisco Bay Guardian notes that Tomboy Tailor’s staff will help you find suits that fit just right everywhere, “customizing them so that each garment fits its new owner.” On the other hand, if suits are not for you and you just like to see them on others, you should still drop by, check out their brand new place and hang out with half of the Straddlers in the Bay Area. You’ll be showing your support for a queer business and getting a chance to mingle with like-minded people all before dinner.

Look, Rachel Walker even made a Facebook event to remind us to go, and to let you know where to go party with us afterwards.

Tomboy Tailors is making sure we have no reasons not to go

*I know registration ended at 10am today, but don’t worry, tickets are not required and they only encouraged RSVPs to make sure they had enough champagne and hors d’ouvres for everyone -because they are awesome.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. We will never put our site behind a paywall because we know how important it is to keep Autostraddle free. But that means we rely on the support of our A+ Members. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you’re able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?

    …My reason is because I’m in frakin Canadaaaa

    And if they didn’t sell bowties, then that would be a sin indeed to the tomboy and fashion deities. But I’m sure they sell bowties. And Ties. And suspenders.

    There’s another clothing company called Wild Fang that is catering to the tomboy aesthetic… looks like there’s gon’ be some competition in this scene!

  3. I live in a savage land without stores like this. Now I have a sad.
