EGA/ Elegant Gothic (Lolita): 'モールJQ/ベロアピークドラペルゴシックコート' by Algonquins

Gorgeous, approaching flawless, this long (or mid-length, depending on the person wearing it) and subtly stripy jacket both fits nicely and works that edged hem like a boss. Could do without the trim, but it doesn't break the balance nor interfere with the overall elegance, either. Very good proportions overall, and choice of buttons is spot-on. There's a lacing in the back, and it's very basic, but quite beautiful; at least someone is doing it right, which makes me happy.

Found here. (Click to view the back.) Also available in other fabrics.


  1. Oh! What a gorgeous jacket, I'd love to wear it as part of an aristo outfit, or put it with a plainer skirt and sensible shoes and black blouse for a 'serious goth', governess-inspired outfit. This is probably the first time I've seen something with shiny black plastic buttons and NOT been compelled to switch them with silvery ones. O.O

  2. ^ Indeed, silver would stand out here in a bad way. But matte black buttons might be nice, too, now that I think of it.
