Pinstripe Corset Vest  
Here are some recent photos taken of a friend of mine wearing his corset I made for him. I love male corsets and thought it would be neat to do a corset inspired by a traditional men's waistcoat. The front is a gray/white pinstripe and the back is black satin. I also posted some construction photos here in my journal.

OK, a well-dressed guy who looks comfortable in his skin (and clothes) always does it for me. Neat, groomed, well-fitting outfit - hot.

Add to that a wonderful matching male corset that looks just right and... 'scuse me. I'll be in my bunk for a bit.

*dribbles* Can I has one? That is so very, very yummy. The corset just makes that outfit drool worthy

That whole outfit is... pretty hot.

That corset looks amazing. It fits him so well. Excellent work!

This is just gorgeous. I love that you went with the waistcoat theme. And you really can't go wrong with pinstripes. Can't say as I'm a fan of the pleated pants, but that's not what we're here to see! ;)

Beautiful, beautiful work! Also, I'm in total agreement with reynardo. :D

Thank you! I'm also not a big fan of pleated pants in general either. I was so excited by the whole look and the photos, that I barely noticed when I first looked at them.
I always love men's corsets that have a traditional sort of theme. I just love this one here by Dark Garden: http://darkgarden.com/Dark-Garden-Beau-Brummell.jpg and would love to do something inspired by that.

...holy whoa. If I weren't already a fan of well-dressed men, and waistcoats in particular, much less corsets.. This right here would change that. Wow.

Now that is some serious eye candy. I need to make something similar for my man.

Cute. Interesting...

Yup, sexy! ;D

Very very Cool!

That has totally cheered me up on a snowy morning. Who needs functioning Central Heating in the office when you can look at such beauty? - The Corset is nice too ;-)

One of my little dreams is to make a corset with a functional watch pocket to wear with this http://www.gothic.co.uk/acatalog/info_AGAW17.html and this http://www.gothic.co.uk/acatalog/info_AGAWC2.html.

A functioning pocket would so great and I love that nevermore watch!

Nice. *drool*

Oh that is just yummy!

I am not sure what I like more, the corset, or the men in the suit and the corset.

Great work, and an amazing photograph!

If you'd be so kind as to put the man, the outfit AND the corset in a padded box with air-holes in it (don't want him getting bruised in transit, now do I?) and send it off to Australia, I'd be ever so grateful! Now, if that doesn't work for you, do you know anyone who can clone him for me?????
Donnademi_x on January 13th, 2010 11:49 am (UTC)
gorgeous, love it!
Cyborgirlcyborgirl on January 13th, 2010 02:00 pm (UTC)
Mrowr! I heartily approve.

um.... wow.

All Im going to say is he looks really really good. Nothing like a sharp dressed man.

oh wowee. this looks so masculine, with the facial hair and the tie!
i love the vest points in the front, and the satin back. my gentleman has been bothering me for a corset for the past couple months, and i'm sure that if i mentioned i could make it look like a vest [one of his favourite accessory garments ever] he'd turn up the pressure.*

bizarreboudoirbizarreboudoir on January 13th, 2010 08:03 pm (UTC)
Thank you! He wears it quite well. I adore waistcoat inspired corsets, I'm currently lusting over this one at Dark Garden: http://darkgarden.com/Dark-Garden-Beau-Brummell.jpg Don't let your gent see that one! :swoon:
Robinia_Acaciarobinia_acacia on January 13th, 2010 06:11 pm (UTC)
Wow, it looks great on him!
The corset is very nice, the overall look just perfect and his face and posture very photogenic.

This is really great. The whole outfit fits perfectly and he keeps it manly. Very well done.

You know, I've never been a fan of male corsets. They never looked right to me.

This looks right to me. Bravo! You've made a convert. Seriously beautiful work, and the man ain't bad either ;)

Wow thank you so much! (^_^)
