New Butch Store!
Nixon Sentry. Love it.
_I've finally got the new Butch Store up! Right now, it's just denim and watches, but there's much more in the works. Now for a brief FAQ:
Q: Why did you make a "Butch Store?"
A: Because butch fashion can be hard! Not only do we have few fashion role models, but menswear doesn't always fit us well. I want a place where butches can immediately find stuff they love.
Q: How do you figure out what to put in the Butch Store?
A: I spend ridiculous amounts of time going through websites and finding things butches might like. (I aspire to be a butch Tim Gunn, so this isn't exactly a chore for me!) Think of me as your butch personal shopper.
Q: If I shop at the store, does it support Butch Wonders?
A: A little, yes! 5-6% of what you spend goes to help Butch Wonders exist. But this blog is nonprofit. If I broke even for my site costs and time, it would be a miracle (and a welcome one, since I quit a paid part-time job to, uh, write more stuff for you to read for free on the Interwebs). Anything beyond this, will be donated to LGBTQ organizations. I'll let you know if that ever happens, and will even let readers vote on which organization I donate to.
Q: I have an idea for something you should offer!
A: Awesome. Email me and tell me what it is.
So there's the lowdown on the Butch Store, friends. I hope you'll check it out. If you have any other questions or feedback, please comment!

So, I went to my archived Curve and found the November 2011 issue with Kirsten Vangsness on the front. There is a whole section devoted to butch fashion. One of the sites is called distinguishedcravat.com and the other is marimachobk.com. According to the article, marimacho is a word that denote tomboy, but denotes "dyke." There's always Dykes In The City, as you already know...I have some of their stuff. There was a site called Rigged Outfitter and I bought an awesome hand painted uxedo shirt that had Ladykiller across the back, and Tomboy and Outlaw on the front shoulders. However, everytime I recently try and access the site, I get nowhere.

Oops, "the boys departments. Some dapper Ralph Lauren and other brands.
This isn't necessarily a suggestion, but as someone who is 50% geeky butch according to your charts (lol) I just can't pass up sharing these:
