Ouji-sama and Aristocrat inspiration.

Good morning :]

Now that I've got rid of most of my academic burdens I can get working on my character depiction a bit more. And like many other writers / artists, I work on my characters' physical appearence very thoroughly and that would include their overall style. The thing is that some of them wear things that one would consider apt for aristocrat and/or ouji-sama, and I would like to keep a folder in my computer for outfit inspiration in case I run dry of it, but I don't know where to look for suitable pictures! The ones I have have been found casually on websites or downloaded in a .zip with GLBs.
So my question to you is - do you know where I can find inspirational pictures for ouji and aristocrat outfits? Japanese fashion pictures are all right, but I'm keener on historical illustrations, preferably from the Regency period, or fashion pictures of clothes that look really really similar or inspired by those. Everything from Tumblr links, to your own .zip files, high fashion spreads or even Kamijo or other fashionable artist would be highly appreciated.
Just remember that aristocrat and ouji are not the same thing - close, though, but not the same ;) (my characters tend to blend in things from different historical periods, and there are some that wear just the clothes from the period they come from - that's why I ask for both) and that there's no such thing as too much inspiration!

Merci beaucoup! x
