What does it look like? Where do I find it? How can I dress like a dieselpunk?
I normally recommend checking out old movies from the diesel era. Hollywood stars love dressing their best, and the trick to dieselpunk is as easy (and as hard) as mashing those classic looks with today's styles. Even if you like wearing clothes…
