Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I was wondering if there's a casual dieselpunk style, mainly because I only have one suit and I don't think people would like it if I wore that 24/7, to help me I have assorted sweater vests, dress shirts, and http://www.infectiousthreads.com/Images/big_hat_pg_bentley.jpg this hat. Could someone help me come up with casual wear? I would be most grateful

What kind of styles do you like to wear?

When I need something to tumble around in, I'm not heading for the three-piece, I'm heading for the army surplus.

With that hat, you could also go for the dress-slacks, t-shirt & suspenders look.

well I was gonna try something with blue jeans, but sometimes I think it's more steam than diesel

Here in Texas one quickly learns how to dress casually, especially in the Summer, and it's possible to still be Dieselpunk. For example, we tend to think that they always wore suits and ties, which wasn't true. You can wear jeans but go with black or beige. Suspenders were very common, which adds a cool diesel look. Also, material is very important if it's warm weather. Avoid wool and go with cotton since it breathes. Others have suggested Cuban style since that was popular due to the mob control of Cuba at the time. Plus, men did wear short sleeves then as well as today. If you do wear long sleeves feel free to roll them up, they did so then just as we do so now.

 

All of this combined with your hat can make up a casual dieselpunk look.

Suspenders are always a nice touch. Funny thing is, you don't even have to wear them over your shoulders. Letting them hang loosely around the hips (something I like to do) is actually fashionable these days.
You guys are life savers, thanks

There's always the pseudo-military light kharki cargo pants look too... add some braces/suspenders and shirt with the sleeves rolled up and you're done...

 

I live in Western Australia which is like Arizona (but with a better accent) "...but it's a DRY heat mate..." ... so I understand why suits suck on on a warm/hot day...

yeah, where i live it's insanely humid so i'd probably end up with pit stains :/
