Cravats, Ties, Neckerchiefs, the Whip Cream of Men's Wear

     Now I know the modern male decries the tie nearly as much as the modern female decries the hated "shape wear".  I do understand this particular element of men's wear is cumbersome and often uncomfortable, but they come with a venerable pedigree and so many permutations that any steampunk style man can find one to fit his particular fancy.  Stay with me gents, because there will be many pictures and lots of video links to how to tie any particular that you would like to sport.

Boots, Spats (spatter dashers), Shoes and Gaiters

      Okay gents, after much research and shopping I have discovered one sad fact. Men's shoes and boots haven't changed all that much in the last 200 years. With the exception of the ubiquitous “trainers”, you can pretty much put anything on your feet and if it fits the rest of your style, well, you can wear it.…

Below the Waist: Trousers, Knickerbockers, Kilts


 On the delicate subject of what a gentleman wears below the belt, I will endeavor to be completely frank.  While I usually don't mention what should not be done in favor of what should, it is here that I will state categorically for my younger readers, no lady of steampunk sensibilities wants to see your…

Shirts and Vests, Waistcoats and Chests...for the Gentleman Adventurer

     A man may go hat less or goggle less but the shirt is indispensable  that is, if he wishes to be served anywhere.  There are also as many styles as their are men.   My only real rule here is, a man must wear a shirt.  No really, Miami boys notwithstanding, a man wearing a vest without a shirt is just not attractive.

     But what kind of shirt should I wear?  Well that depends a great deal on your personal style.  If you are rocking the working man, a…

Constructive vs. Destructive Steampunk Philosophy

As I'm sure lots of people can agree, it's difficult pinpointing exactly what is Steampunk. The lesser known variants like Dieselpunk and Steelpunk are more acquired tastes, but I find myself liking them all. Any sort of vintage clothing style, I finding more aesthetically pleasing than modern fashions, so as I'm training myself to become a full-fledged tailor I'm hardly keeping myself constrained to just Victorian patterns alone! But no matter what it might be, I never consider Steampunk to…

Beyond Victoriana #82 The Birth of Miss Dorothy Winterman: A Personal Essay– Guest Blog by Luisa Ana Fuentes

Story Excerpt:

Dorothy Winterman's "African Amazon" outfit

It is day 15 of our arduous journey through the veldts of Nigeria (or are we in Cameroon yet?). Our tracker Adeola has discovered new tracks and scraps of fibers from obviously foreign cloths.

Beyond Victoriana: #80 Shadi Ghadirian & Muslim Women "Time Travelers"

If nineteenth-century Iranian women discovered time travel, where would they go? What would they bring back?

Photographer Shadi Ghadirian did not have these questions in mind, persay, but she is interested in how the Western world perceives Iranian woman like herself. In her photography series "Qajar," she brings out the cognitive dissonance that someone unfamiliar with Iran may experience, as well as comments about the position of women in society… Continue

Steampunk World's Fair-- the self-proclaimed "largest steampunk festival in the US" had a huge turnout last year and raised expectations for many steampunks for repeat success.
