Women's Clothing That Looks Like Men's Clothing For Men

Updated on July 1, 2009

Have you ever wanted the thrill of wearing women's clothing but without the hassle of it actually looking like women's clothing? After all, wearing women's clothing is a practice that carries with it only slightly less stigma than being a Christian in Roman times (you won't get thrown to wild beasts in the Colosseum, but a red neck named Cletus might call you gay, or 'Guuaayy' as he'll pronounce it.)

Women's Y Fronts From American Apparel

I don't understand a lot that American Apparel does, but I do understand it is so trendy that kids would buy anything there, those guys could sell Ebola in partially cracked vials to college aged Americans and they'd lap it up.

Which explains how they're getting away with selling Harem Pants (fashion Ebola, if ever I saw it, but instead of making your insides liquefy, they just make other people's eyes bleed,) and it also explains how they can get away with selling Y fronts for women.

These cotton spandex Y fronts even come with a pretend version of that slit that men have in their underwear which saves them from having to go to all the trouble of actually lowering their pants and whatnot when they have to go to the bathroom. This makes them super authentic looking, meaning you can buy them and wear them in the knowledge that they are totally women's panties, but without anyone freaking out if they happen to see you in them.

Skinny Jeans

Women's jeans can be worn by men, especially 'skinny jeans' which are so in right now amongst the hipster crowd. These jeans are fairly androgynous to begin with and really only look good on young women who have yet to really develop hips or other curves and men, who tend to have nice straight up and down legs.

These jeans are made by Lee jeans, one of my favorite manufacturers because they often have a button fly, which unlike other types of fly, isn't constantly falling down. (I don't know what's wrong with my body, but half the zip flies I have ever worn in my life would work their way down to the open position within about an hour of putting them on. Terribly embarrassing really.)

Slip Ons / Shoes

You've got the panties, you've got the jeans, now you just need the shoes. Slip ons and sneakers from a brand like Converse are fairly gender neutral, so you can easily go shopping amongst the female offerings and end up wearing something that looks entirely suitable. These camouflage sneakers from converse are a perfect example of exactly what I mean. If you're really brave, go ahead and get a pair in pink.

      I'd have to agree with MIKK above, its 'over the top'. Just can't really see the point and don't see any practicality in anything else. Lets face it, theres life to be lived and buttons and trap doors take up time and can be a little fiddly.

      As for the red panties above, they're cute, but for me its boy shorts made for girls, lace, colours etc. They're just so delightfully feminine.

      Such a strange thing really, beinh a bloke and enjoying such female stuff. Must have been a girl in a past life...LOL

      Of course, love being a bloke, beautifully tailor suits, silk ties etc, but lets face it, there is just something preciously and delightfully yummy about having girls stuff underneath - it is so nice wearing girls stuff.

      Jocks and bloke undies just don't cut it for the close, intimate, personal and sexy feel enjoyed when earing undies made for girls. It just.......nice, Nothing more, nothing less.

      Having worn them for some years, it just make so much sense, and so comfortable. As for room in front, well its just finding the right size and stretch. better quality better fit.

      So there my take...enjoy your panties, boyshort and so very made for girls undies..!

      I'd like to take this opportunity to point out something you mentioned in another article Hope. When a vast portion of men go to the bathroom, they use the "over the rim" method which makes the "trap-door" completely useless. I think male underwear designers fail to take this into account, which may also contribute to our wearing of panties in a more thoughtless/its-just how-we-operate way.

      Levi's does offer the 501 Button Fly jean for men. However, they are getting harder to find in my area of the U.S. but that's okay with me. All I wear are womens low rise stretch jeans anyway. They are much more comfortable. They fit better. They look better on me. And for some rare and unknown reason, they cost less than men's jeans. So to cover my rear, I'll keep buying my jeans in the "Misses" department.

      As for the panties at the top of the page. They are kinda cute on the model shown, but I prefer my panties to look like panties.

      Hanes makes womens Y fronts too, I have several. And most mens jeans don't have a button fly--too much trouble.

      It's me being ignorant. Just did a quick search and found mens jeans with button fly. So, now I really do have no idea.

      Don't know. I've never had a button fly before. So perhaps I'm showing my ignorance.

      Nice Nancy, slipping your man panties unawares... tricksy!

      I'm going to be ignorant for a moment, do men's jeans not have button flies? I assumed they did... are men denied the awesomeness of buttons as well?

      I actually bought these panties in pink. They're definitely cute! On the website for American Apparel, there are plenty of comments from guys who have actually tried these or from women who had their guys wear them. So I secretly bought a black pair and a gray pair and gave them to my guy to wear. He loves the way they feel, but he has no idea hes wearing panties!

      I bought my favourite jeans secondhand, and I honestly don't know what gender they were originally made for.

      I suspect they were womens, (because they have a button up fly) but I couldn't really tell if I wanted to. What I do know is that they are comfy and look good on me.

      Womens jeans are stretchy and I've worn them for YEARS. All of my friends know, male and female, and no one cares - I just say they're comfortable and look and fit better. Of course there is still a little thrill in it all, I guess, but not like knowing I have lingerie under them! :P

      And if they fit nicely over ya bum and you have some nice frilly undies, a keen eyed girl might notice - perfect :P

      Seriously though they fit well and show you off. Too many guys like wearing jeans that show their underwear or hang down by their knees - hardly an attractive look as far as all the girls I know are concerned!

      I'm pushing for more spandex and stretch in guys clothes - we should all do it.

      Check this article out, over a year old I think but it's happening a LOT - and as they say in the article it's because the girls jeans stretch that they fit the guys better - no, REALLY!? I would have thought the horrible straight cut no-stretch crap jeans we normally wear would be fine!,23663...

      We need a revolution and I think Hope is going to do it! :)
