Manly closet post: part II

20140113_190045 (Copy)

web analytics
I wanted to make a follow-up closet post last year, but as you can see from the second chart below, I didn't really acquire enough new items to justify it. The increase in the past two years of 122% has made it more worthwhile this time around. In addition, my purchase of a mannequin and the development of a rudimentary grasp of photography will hopefully improve the presentation. As you can see, I no longer simply photograph everything with the flash on. Over the past year I've purged the majority of my pirate costumes in order to purify my wardrobe. I completely forgot the about the sidebar while putting this post together and no longer care enough to fix it.

Coats

Second Moitie item I fell in love with. Didn't actually get around to buying it until three years after it had sold out. Got into a ridiculous bidding war that I lost. The winning bidder didn't pay up, so I got it at the opening bid price when it was relisted. First Moitie item I fell in love with and bought. Now falling apart and never worn. I couldn't even see this coat properly in the grainy mobile phone photo in the original Mbok auction, but bid on it anyway just because.

This coat attracts nerds. Got this in this year's lucky pack. The closest I come to casual aristo.



Capes

11011001 D.Walkure BZM2324 Airo BZM2341 Gregory mini
Still regret not buying the hat when I had the chance. First cape I bought. Was overcome by strange gothninja desires. I wanted this simply because it was held together by buckles instead of ridiculous ties.


Jackets

EGA-49291 BZM2167 Sebastian BZM2254 Sebastian - 2010 Kuroshitsuji collaboration BZM2120
I bought this solely to wear on supermarket runs. This coat combines the the cuffs of BZM2219, collar of BZM2227 and lapels of BZM2246 to create a chimera. I don't even like Kuroshitsuji.
BZM2219 Kronos BZM2250 Novalis BZM2175 Valerian BZM2237 Roland
BZM2219 Kronos BZM2250 Novalis BZM2175 Valerian BZM2237 Roland (wool)
My first Boz piece. Flasco coordinated this with a baby blue waistcoat. A waistcoat and a false cummerbund. Weirdoes. Buying Roland variants is the closest I'll let myself come to jumping on the Roland collecting bandwagon. Wasn't actually a Roland fan to begin with, but it eventually grew on me.

A little disappointed because I was expecting something fancier considering Boz made a big deal of it being part of a special set, but it's kind of growing on me. Only started buying short jackets after acquiring my buttcapes because it feels so weird walking around without the skirt swishing around my legs. It's physically impossible to reach that top pocket with the jacket on. My only regret in life is not owning more doublebreasted things.

I still have no idea how to wear this. Bought solely because it was a velveteen rider jacket. All I need is for Boz to make some track suit pants and I'll be ready to take up my new life as a petty criminal.


Gilets

Ordered online after a very unproductive trip to Japan. Turns out Kera doesn't stock much in men's size. So yeah, bordeaux is third colour to creep into my wardrobe.

None of those pockets are real, but it has two seam pockets. I look forward to showing off some fine-ass shirt fronts with this.


Waistcoats

The bordeaux colourway was the first splash of colour to enter my wardrobe. Eternal regret followed.

2/2 Backless waistcoats are my summer saviours. I thought this waistcoat was defective when I first bought it because I didn't know what a boutonnière was.

I'm not really a stripe person, so you'll rarely see these worn. This isn't the shade of black as my other clothes and that upsets me.

I don't even know why I bought this.

I have nothing to say about pants.

Don't know why the lighting is so yellow, don't care enough to fix it.

Buttcapes

BZM1391 Gefion BZM5137 Leister
My very first buttcape. With it began the buttcape bros and the secret mandates of the ouji society. Boz classes this as pants instead of a skirt.


Shirts

4/4 Probably my favourite shirts, even with the sausage sleeves, so I'm glad i managed to collect the entire set.

2/2 Bought in the innocent days when I still thought $60 for a shirt was a large amount. 2/2 Half the buttons on these shirts are decorative and this confuses dates immensely.

This is my space captain shirt. Re: colours -- and blue, very grudgingly, the fourth. Bell sleeves are stupid.

This shirt vindicates my love of double-breasted shirts. Rarely worn because all those ruffles just get in my way. I got given the black one for free with another shirt after buying something from a consignment shop because nobody wanted it. The blue I got in a lucky pack again because nobody wanted it.

Pretty much the only reason I went to Japan was to finally buy a bordeaux jabot.

Atelier Boz ugly lace jabot Black Peace Now jabot black Black Peace Now jabot white 108-414 Griottine jabot
Gross plastic lace. It reminds of a table cloth. The only acceptable Black Peace Now items in existence.

Freebie with a Moitie order. It's a pretty shit pen. Bought at Closet Child Shinjuku and just stared at in reverence ever since.

This jug is tiny and I don't know what I'm meant to do with it. My only regret is that I don't have the tiny Boz cutlery set to use with this.

Stuffed animal coord. Modeled here by Adrian Fahrenheit Tepes. One day I'll replace him with one of those Moitie bears. I think it's pretty obvious I will buy anything with the Boz logo on it.
