What is the difference between an Androgynous suit and other suits?

At Shane Ave we cater to everyone regardless of your identity or preferred style. Androgynous is a style that flows between genders allowing you to freely express your identity without necessarily looking for a men’s or women’s suit. We also cater to femme styles that suit some people in our community that like to show their feminine traits when wearing a suit.
