An Introduction To Steampunk Fashion

Posted by on Jun 23, 2012 in Articles | Comments Off

To fully understand what Steampunk fashion is, you have to understand where the style came from. If you’re familiar with the clothing, you’ll notice the definite Victorian-era influence. Steampunk refers to an fictional historical period in time that closely resembles Victorian-era Britain. It’s staged around the beginning of the Industrial Era where there was a lot of building and creating going on, but most machines and factories were still powered by steam – before electricity. In recent years, thanks to certain genres of literature, Steampunk and Steampunk fashion has gotten a lot of attention and has subsequently grown in popularity.

You may already be familiar with some Steampunk-style literature and not even know it. Think along the lines of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea for an idea of what we mean.

From this peaked interest, a love of Steampunk fashion was born. Some may call the Steampunk trend the “trashy” side of Victorian-era style. That’s because although the current style is heavily influenced by the old one, the newer trends tend to be a bit more messy and a tad less formal than the original styles. We’re going to focus on Steampunk fashion for men and show you some of our most popular Steampunk items. For men’s Steampunk fashions, a fancy coat with tails is definitely a must-have addition to your wardrobe. High-waisted trousers with buttons on either side are a must.
