Neo-Baroque/EGA: Tuxedo Coat by Nubia at Androm

Beautiful, sleek lines, an interesting collar, and nicely cut and proportioned; this coat can only be paired with an outfit that showcases equal elegance and requires thorough planning.

I am tempted to add that were that lacing removed and perhaps replaced with a short back belt, this garment would rise to the, ah, shall we say next level of elegance. That said, the lacing isn't too bad, really, and simply switching to matte ribbon would suffice.

Also I would not suggest wearing any stiff materials with this but rather keep it flowy and light.

Found here. (Site in Portuguese.)

  1. Just out of curiosity, what would you pair this with? :)

  2. Anon: A pair of dark pressed trousers, cotton or similar. A loose but well-shaped cut. Pinstripe, potentially.

    Alternatively, capri trousers or knickerbockers, in case the person in question wanted to emphasize the historical influence.

  4. ^Thank you kindly.

    I'm afraid you'd have to be more specific than that, however. Gender is an insignificant part of what clothes one ought to wear.

  5. I guess I meant more something like, "how would I dress this down a little?" For instance, would it work with black jeans, or tight pants and boots? (hides face in corner from fear of suggesting fashion taboo)

  6. Hmm. Tight pants and boots would make it look a bit too much like a slightly bizarre riding outfit, I'm afraid, so that'd be a definite 'no' if you ask me. And black jeans, well... let them be flared, at least. Tricky, tricky.

  7. ...ok, makes sense (hadn't thought about the riding outfit resemblance). Thanks for sharing your fashion savvy! :)
