Victorian Dandyism is back in style!

First there were costumers, dressing up in Victorian Garb. Then there was Steampunk. Movies joined the party with such flicks as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003), The Prestige (2006) and There will be Blood (2007). And now we are here: Victorian fashion is back in style for men! That is, according the the New York Times article, This Just in From the 1890's by David Colman (thanks again to J. for pointing it out out to me).

Note: The following pictures are all from the aforementioned article. They are Tintype photographs by David Sokosh for The New York Times and were photographed on Governors Island, New York. They are used here for illustration purposes. They can all be found

Victorian Sport

Brothers in Arms

Hunting Day in 1890

Family Affair

Oxford Elite

Country Outing

Yes, men, I do sometimes think of you too!

By the way all the clothes in these pictures are designer pieces, some retailing for over 2000$! But you get a good idea of the look, and if a costumer knows one thing, it's to achieve the right look by making clothing pieces him/herself.

By the way, don't you just love the Tintype photography and the vintage effect it helps give the outfits?
