About us

OUTSKIRTS was born in early 2019, the product of three friends who wanted to create a unique vintage clothing shop; offering vintage looks for the entire gender spectrum with on-site professional alterations. We seek out bold, fun styles for our customers, with a particular eye for extended sizes.

OUTSKIRTS vintage is not a traditionally owned business but rather is a co-op. Owned and controlled by the group equally. 

With some background in retail and sales combined with talents and skills in alterations and costuming, OUTSKIRTS Vintage has worked to build a safe and inclusive business that allows any and all to feel welcome and safe expressing their outward identity not defined by the gendered label, but rather by clothing that makes customers feel their truest self. 

We continue to build and create custom and original clothing in addition to the alterations through OUTSKIRTS, including but not limited to pieces purchased or found in store. 

2021 brings about the inclusion of the online store, and a continued focus to create a safe and welcoming space for clients and members of the community as a whole.

In 2023 Jeannie and James joined the Co-Op bringing the team to a current total of 4 as of the start of 2024.
