Here’s another entry in the queer clothing list. Started last year in 2007, Tomcat is based out of Phoenix and has a long list vintage and retro clothing and accessories. Tomcat’s signature seems to be this: buy vintage clothing – mostly 50s style buttondown short sleeve shirts – and add a screenprinted graphic. The look is vaguely rockabilly while occasionally having a touch of unexpected fun, like a shirt with a banana seemingly growing out of the pocket. The site also has more retro gay magnets (“But mommy, wouldn’t gay marriages be happy marriages?”) than your local gay bookstore.

The army look is back. But why would you pay $150 for a designer army-style jacket when you can get one built to last at an army surplus store?

$49.95 from Army Navy USA

More belts! More recycled goodness! These are straight from the salvage yard, with a stop-off for some hand painting.

Dykes in the City Shop

I’ve been meaning to do a series on queer clothing shops and designers, and Dykes in the City is a good place to start. Like most startup clothing companies, they have generic DITC-branded tees and tanks, but where they really shine is in the accessories and formal wear. You can find vests, button-downs, hand-crafted belts and cuffs – all designed by and marketed to queer women. Which of course also means that the models are smokin’ hot. DITC aims to “purposely blur fashion gender and body image rules in the creation of clothing.” You may have seen DITC clothing – or even its founder Niki Cutler – at pride festivals or fashion shows.

Saturn Tie

For the hip astronomer who has everything, this tie was inspired by the rings of Saturn and has that 70s feel. Which is still a planet unlike poor little Pluto. Never mind that the shipping is about what I would expect to pay for a tie.

$125 from Hlaska
