Holzer & Combe Haberdashery
Clothes to Dress you from Hats to Spats
If you are into Steampunk or the Victorian-Era Festival you are going to want to put on the garb at some point. To do that, it is going to be a little harder then putting together a basic Ren Faire outfit, you are going to have to find a costumer. One of the ones that I would recommend is Holzer and Combe Haberdashery. They cover everything you might need to accessorize a Steampunk or Victorian costume.
Top hats, bowlers, newsie – Oh my! Yup, hats are a big deal at a Steampunk of Victorian festival. All the well dressed gentleman wore a hat of some shape form or fashion. The top hat is of course the most visible and it looks great if it is the right size and the right shade. Holzer & Combe will help you find that topper that you need. They will make sure it fits right, sits on your head the right way and that you get the right color to match the rest of your costume.
Coats, Vests and Cravats
The vest and the cravat are also essential to gentleman wear of the Victorian era. But, just like the hat, the vest has to fit right and the cravat has to be the right shade for the rest of your costume. The selection of vests that you find at Holzer and Combe is astounding. Plus, if you are in their store, you get to try it on, make sure that it fits and also become choosy about the garment you are buying.
