(editor's note: Mel had just imbibed absinthe when she wrote this so she got a little bossy..)
**Black or Red Vampire Lestat shirt or the White Aristocrat Shirt**
These shirts are a light weight but lovely stretchy fabric so you will feel very very comfortable. We have tried lots of different shirt styles and have declared THIS to be our best shirt yet!
They are available up to a 3XL which is good news if you have struggled to find steampunk or gothic formal shirts to fit.
Here's a video showing the quality and up close detail:
**Victorian Waistcoat You need a waistcoat... just trust us. You do! If you choose a white or black shirt as a base you have more freedom with the colour of vest that you choose.
If you want to look damn amazing every time then the top pick is a Silk Brocade vest, totally worth the investment. Check out the cool features that make it an edgy victorian style:
NOW IT'S TIME TO ACCESSORISE
You now have the option to really express yourself, depending on your budget! You can choose to accessorise with all or a few of these different iconic steampunk accessorise. Goggles are MANDATORY though.
**Goggles Seriously gents, They are the iconic steampunk accessory! Whack a pair of these on your noggin and everyone will get that you're dressing steampunk!
For top of the line and with movable parts you can play with here's the pick:
For something more Mad Max inspired then the Spiked Cyber Goggles are what you want.
** Top Hat A top hat will give you that more 'gentlemanly' look. Put the goggles on the hat.
**Pocket Watch Every steampunk gentleman needs a pocket watch as an accessory.
** Finishing Touch.....Belts or Bandoliers - a utility looking belt will give the impression that you are READY for a dystopian world! Put a belt over your shoulder as a nifty bandolier and BOOM! you're Done!
