The Crossroads of the Aether
Hey guys so I'm going to make a shop soonish (hopefully) and I have plenty of idea's for things to make for girls, but mostly do to the fact that i'm not a boy I have almost no idea's for things for guys.
Soo I was really hoping you guys of the empire would tell me what you would like to see as accessories as well as clothing and other random things
I'm not a guy, but I frequently shop for my male other-half so I'm always on the look-out for men's steampunk items. Things I've bought for my partner in the past include: shirts, jackets, waistcoats, braces (suspenders), watches (wrist and pocket), a jabot and a cravat.
Items I would buy in the future include: trousers, top-hats, bowlers, socks, belts, messenger bags, goggles, boots, spats, a monocle and rings.
Non-clothing items that I'd consider buying are desk accessories, business-card holder, books, globes.
Guys want Vests. When I go to a steampunk store online, I want to see vests, hats, eyewear, and recently it was boots. Another thing that is important is sports coats and the like. Alot of places have pants; I, as a guy, do not give a crap about ordering pants online. We're guys... we can find slacks that work.
Canes, too. Alot of shops have parasols for girls, well Canes are for guys. Also, weapons. Can NEVER go wrong with weapons.
Hope this helps.
Definately trousers, there's not enough trousers that holler steampunk. Blacksmithing aprons, trousers, coats and pants with pockets many many pockets, yes vests and definately a variety of head wear. Such as train conductor, engineer, newsies, military, and bowlers. I tire of seeing a sea of tophats with unusable goggles. Stripes are always a good one and suspenders, not too many suspenders rolling around, trousers with built in suspenders, coats, shirts, and vests with tool pouches attached. Backpacks, and I could probaply go on all day with out saying anything that actually helps.
Buttons, Many Many buttons, Brass, Copper
can't go wrong with belt pouches
otherwise, toolbelts, boots, canes, heavy looking gloves, medals, those shoulder boards, bowlers, never see enough bowlers, it's always tophats half the time, and make some f them large, some of us have big heads not all hats fit,
non-wearables, probably bookends, assorted devices tat at least look cool on a shelf even if the don't nessicerily do much, extra points if they do do something, globes, old looking maps, chematics to airships, preserved creatures in jars, idols to cthulhu
