Neo-Victorian/ Steampunk: 'Darby' Vest at Retroscope

Now, it might just be that I'm crackers about fine vests - which I am - but even with that taken into consideration, is this not a particularly fine, elegant piece of clothing right here? More asymmetry, yes, and an interesting shape at the hem; but I also find the choice of fabric interesting and, dare I say, spot-on. The shirt they have chosen to pair this up with is excellent.

Comes in black, too, here.


  1. Love it! I'd like my boyfriend to wear it. It looks a bit like what a Victorian blacksmith would have worn, yet elegant.

  2. ^ Indeed; the thickness makes it look a bit like leather.

  3. Retroscope really likes their asymmetry.
