What happens when I sit down and have an enjoyable lunch with steampunk fashion designer Chris Mills? I come up with ideas and then have the NERVE to stick with one idea and run with it!
So what does Swain mean?
Aside from a country lad? Beau? Admirer of a woman? Why darling it means, affordable yet acceptable clothing for the Steampunk and/or aspiring Steampunk male. Providing them with something they can enjoy wearing without going broke right out the gate if they are not used to this amazingly fun DIY culture we all thrive in.
But…if it’s DIY then why are they purchasing items?
Everyone needs to start somewhere and as well all know not everyone is a needle and threadie. THAT and making something out of nothing or remastering something into more of a something is what being Steampunk is all about. The prices offered are a lot safer for them to invest in then a pile of seven hundred dollar materials they cannot use or have to beg and plead a friend to work on. THAT being said we do also offer comissions here, but that is a few and far between deal. So why not provide items that are nice stepping stones at a steal?
Wow! Not a bad idea! There isn’t a lot of mens clothing out there.
No there isn’t and some of it is de to the fact that men aren’t seen as potential costume buyers and that is WHY we adore our Steampunk men so much! They know what it means to dress to impress, get into character, and be down right sharp when need ot be or dastardly dearing in the air or at sea!
So it’s only mens clothing then?
Yes my dear! We women are just down right spoiled when it comes to the fashion industry period, so here’s me giving back to the men that give me the eye candy I so need and demand to see.
So though I should post a ton more in regards to the store, I think now is time for action! Prepare to see everything on either facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Swain/112099112240322 or ebay! Full speed ahead!
