Great Gear for the New Year

Usually, I do not respond well to people writing to me, wanting me to feature their shop on my blog. More often then not, it is only vaguely Steampunk what they have to offer or I simply do not like it. I have blogged about this before. Every now and …

Tribulations of the Waistcoat Wearer

Summer is once again almost upon us and this year we have already had quite a hot April in these parts. However, mornings are still quite chilly so I need something to keep the chill of on my way to the station. My preferred method, i.e. Garment of choice, is …
