This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. Boystyle refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and aristocrat fashions. Google ouji, aristocrat, EGA, etc., before asking questions here.

Read the whole thread before asking any questions here.

OC and selfposts encouraged! Picspam discouraged, we've seen most of it by now.

DISCUSSION PROMPT: With Buttcape's blog down, what's the best up-to-date boystyle guide to link to in future OPs? Should we make our own, like the lolitas did?
>>
>from an anon in the last thread:

I did some poking on archive.org and you can find copies of buttcape's posts there:

anon, no aristo, we had the vote in the femme aristo thread to keep it out of ouji.
>>
>>8761206
the vote was split evenly last i checked, 6 for and 6 against. most who wear male aristo want to stay here.

i made the poll and posted it to both threads.

in any case, what i would suggest is, rather than derail, when the femme aristo thread fills or drops off the board, its next edition can be open to all types of aristo. this thread, which has built up a discussion community, will stay open to all types of boystylers. no reason to exclude or chase anyone out of a thread.

Get a mens' Roland. You need room in the measurements for breathing etc. I have a mens' Roland despite being a woman with a bust of 80cm. They're fine. The ladies size Roland also has a ridiculously tiny waist - about 65cm on the garment itself.

Anyone know where to find cool hats? Preferably like tricorn hats, but cool top hats would also be ok. AatP's are pretty cool, but most of them are out of stock, and I feel like most of the ones on Etsy either look cheap or are overdone (too many feathers and things, to the point that it looks silly). I've heard there are some on taobao, but I'm not sure which shops to check.

I would personally take that risk unless it was like $30 for the whole thing.
It looks like it's made out of corduroy which is hard to clean, and also it looks frumpy as fuck.
I would do red with that color I would do a cream instead much like the teddy bear ouji that was posted a little bit earlier.

Does it bother anyone else that h. Naoto doesn't make his clothes symmetric by the prints? For example, >>8771335 bottom left looks bad in my eye since the print isn't 'mirrored'. It looks like it's badly sewn because of the print.

I know it's related to not to get waste fabric. It just would look better symmetric.
>>
>>8771380
i own a few h. Naoto items and enjoy the asymmetry, but i can see how it would be troublesome for others. to me it feels a bit like the screens(?) used to fill patterns in comics and manga, a technique exploited for aesthetic effect in pic related.

I hope someone who'll get some use out of this reads it - Peacockalorum's large/regular sized tricorns are $60 if I remember correctly, and I bought one thinking it'd be worth the price. It's comically tiny, but not mini-hat tiny, the feather is pathetic and the brooch was meh and cheaply made. I also bought some bows which came on uncomfortable, plain metal headbands despite no headband being shown in the picture (so I assumed they were clips) and my ivory bow has a white center (the knot part of the bow). I'm terrified of confrontation so I never made a review, which is my fault entirely, but I hope maybe I can prevent someone else from being as disappointed.

The bow in question was pic related in ivory, although now I do see the ugly cheap headband attached to it. Either way, for a $17 headbow ordered in a specific color, I think it's fair to expect the entire bow to be that color?
>>

thanks anon, that is helpful.

Do you have pics worn? I am curious about how small the "big" ones are.

>>8776893
any pics of the wigs? worn or on a wig head is fine.
>>
>>8777592
thanks anon, i plan to! i'm a manlet with a small frame who can probably get small enough to fit in most womens ouji, and i am gonna take full advantage of that by not being a fat fuck any longer.

>>8776893

seconding the wigs, please. my usual hairstyle doesnt work for ouji.
>>
>>8778992
>probably get small enough to fit in most womens ouji
mad jelly. i am a 5'6" manlet and have to stick to brands with men's sizes. exploit your genetics, anon.
>>
how tall guys does ouji generally accommodate for? I want to get a male friend into it but he's at least 5'10 if not more. weight would not be an issue since he's quite a twig
>>
>>8779034
people always bullied me for being so damn short, but i guess the jokes on them now because im going to be small, frilly and happy, and they arent. good luck with you finding clothes that fit, anon.
>>
>>8779051
The thing he will have an issue with is sleeve and pant length. It isnt meant for tall people, so if he is lanky he will have to go custom on this stuff.
>>
>>8779051
technotropism and ghostintheforest are quite tall, pic related, and they wear brand. techno did an unboxing video for a unisex AatP robe (Chat Noir?) on YouTube and mentions the fit as being a bit small compared to men's sizes. if he is twiggy he should be all right, shoulders and armholes might be his biggest issue.

>>8779066
yup, getting into boystyle after having been bullied for being small and unmasculine is a sweet revenge.
>>
>>8779443
another option is to shorten long pants and sleeves if length is the only issue. tailoring long pants to be short pants would fit the aesthetic.

you can also get away with a plainer but fitting blouse if you have a good gilet. something like pic related seems to be hiding a lot of tall person troubles: folded sleeves, tall boots concealing the ends of the pants, and an eyecatching gilet (sleeveless Roland?) that draws the eyes away from the rolled-up sleeves.
>>
>>8779454
sorry, looked like boots in the pic but it's just shorts and dark socks. the point still stands: tuck pants that are not long enough into tall boots!
>>
>>8763266
there's a couple up on ClosetChild now
>>
>>8779446
Ah I fit right inbetween ghostintheforest and agentlemandoesnotconga.
I haven't had too many length issues so far, but I haven't bought any Brand yet either.
>>
>>8780080
Look at their pictures to get a feel for what they fit into. Agentlemandoesnotconga wears moitie fine, and he isnt that skinny for an asian. Ghostintheforest seems to wear attp jackets fine but I dont see her wear brand pants or shorts.
>>
>>8779446
Wow, I'm taller than Aerynsys and absolutely nobody else! No wonder everything's long and loose.

>>8779446
I'm 170. I'm going to feel even worse about being tall and un-cute.

>>8779454
I don't understand how 5'8 is considered tall, everyone in >>8779446 is manlet sized and some still struggle to fit in the MEN's sized BOYstyle?

>>8781178
yeah, if i recall, when she finally joined the Roland club she had to unjoin because ladies' size was too big.

tall can be cute, you just gotta work it. i do not know the heights of other boystylers but totentanzdandy seems taller than siriusc at least, and he can be quite cute imo.

aw anon. ouji is versatile, you can wear nice fashionable pants even if the shorts are too short or whatever. in pic related, the styles at the bottom say "Ouji Style" and "Ouji style in previous issues," and the look with long pants can work well for tall folk.

additionally, famous ouji technotropism is your height and makes it work imo.

cannot help with the boyfriend situation ofc
>>
>>8781874
bottom right to be specific

>>8781704
It's a girl fashion, men's size is only s bit bigger and Asians are short.

>>8781709
The sleeves are too long on her.
>>
>>8781784
actually, even ghostintheforest is taller than you. pic related. you are fine, just avoid tiny brands and buy men's sizes when possible.
>>
>>8781885
Which brands are considered tiny and which ones are considered normal or big? I'm curious. Additionally, despite being tall I can fit into most of big and medium sizes. How do I know if they're really fitting me and when I'm stuffing myself into too small clothes? I don't want to spend any more money just to end up being nouji in ill fitted clothes.
>>
>>8781874
Uh, he's much taller than 1.7m
I'm a bit taller than that and he stands way over me.
I have no idea how he pulls it off, maybe because he's so skinny. Anyway you can always modify things and you don't have to use exclusively brand pants, for example. Especially if you're more aristo.
Shit anon, 170cm is barely 5'7" and that's just beginning to be slightly tall. Only insecure manlets would care.

on the subject of size, this street snap features someone 170cm wearing "gosu ouji" (gothic ouji), with a brand list of each item: >>8783070

175cm, 75/64/86 measurement female here who fits into lady's sizes fine. Atelier Boz's lady's fits perfect even though the waist part somewhat starts to sit on my lower ribcage. I have yet to buy brand pants though and I am worried those might hit my hips and not fit.

Planning on buying a AaTP jacket soon and hoping it'll fit. The sizing seems larger than Boz.
>>
>>8785083
Boz tends to be wider in the shoulders, i have found, but that is in their mens sizes.

a lot of brand pants in ladies sizes seem to be around 90cm at the waist, so i think you will be all right.
>>
It's finally getting colder and snowier so pictures of winter ouji coords are welcome
>>
>>8785083
Don't worry about your hips, worry about the length. Depending on my weight, my hips are 88-90cm (although mostly butt, so somewhat squishier than a wide pelvis) and I haven't had any trouble with brand pants. I'm only 158cm though and find the inseam and rise good on me, so I guess watch out for that if you're planning to get long pants not shorts

Some of Bodyline lolita shirts look as if they were good for black&white butler-kei ouji.

>>8789068
i was checking out Deorart's English shop today. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/products?term.brand_id=100000102&term.media=APPAREL&opt.is_group_default=1&order=new&page=1

they are a brand that consistently releases items labelled "ouji" that are often overlooked, and they have a wide range of sizes (small around 34cm shoulders i think, large around 41cm+) and items under $100. they release more punk than ouji but i thought you might find them worth checking out.

what is your ideal ouji "look"?
>>
>>8786867
forget what the words themselves "really mean." if someone in my comm or on FB describes themselves as a shota, does this mean they probably like shotacon? or is there another meaning that became common among young women who are professed fujoshi?

i do not know whether to feel creeped out or not when a female boystyler uses words like seme/uke or shota to describe their look. i am hoping it is like when lolitas call themselves lolis, that is a playful thing, not related to porn, and therefore not an indication that they are getting off on the idea of little boys being sexy.
>>
>>8790858
they probably just mean that they look like a young boy, not that they're into shota. (probably)

How hard is it to get into it if you're 5'10" 210 lbs? No, I'm not fat.

>>8790939
depends on your measurements. wide shoulders will have trouble fitting into brand blouses and jackets, a wide waist or long rise could impair your ability to wear brand shorts or pants. read upthread for discussions of height, and visit here to get an idea of what different-heighted boystylers look like: http://palaceofprinces.tumblr.com/MeetthePrinces

most brands are made for slim Japanese-sized people, but some Taobao brands do custom sizing.

Brother, I'm into bodybuilding/power lifting, not sitting on the couch and eating cheetos. I didn't specify though, so you got me there.
>>
>>8790956
That means you should try to get things custom made for your shoulders and chest, and rely on open coats for brand main pieces. You're tall and presumably muscular, so an aristo look is better than cutesy ouji would be.
Do you have a pair of quality black trousers?
If you were fat, your situation would be completely different. You can afford to wear form fitting stuff, but your chest, shoulders, and (praise Brodin) thighs will be your limiting factor, rather than fat people, who have most trouble with waist.
Check out fanplusfriend.
>>
>>8790956
if you are thick, cutesy ouji may not work, but historic-inspired ouji like pic related could. look to historic men's fashions and use brand accessories to accent.

aristocrat could also work, but it relies a lot on drape for its silhouette. either way, fan+friend is a good place to start like the other anon said

>>8761314

But at the same time I love the 'mad-hatter' look with prints and accesories but it's much harder to coord with beginners wardrobe & costs more.

Def I'd avoid anything that leans towards aristo.

Sorry if I'm babbling! I guess I'm too new and too poor to know exactly what I want.

they are closer to sweet and classic ouji than gothic. the first two are a bit OTT, and all three are definitely more princely feeling, the way hime lolita has a more dressed-up/royal feel than non-hime.

pic related has an example of "sweet ouji" on the left, with more examples below it. you can have sweet in dark or muted colors or jewel tones; what separates it from "classic ouji" (examples in lower right of >>8781874) are the motifs in prints, the playful or "younger" look.

but this is open to interpretation and discussion. i have never seen anyone discuss these 2 scans and what they mean for ouji substyles, if anything. a lot of people seem to think sweet ouji means pastels and girly motifs, but to me the playing cards, Mad Hatterness, florals, as well as the shape (shorter or poofier) mark them as closer to sweet.

but also fairly close to classic. if you want to define your style, perhaps "sweet-classic ouji" would get the least disagreement.
>>
Anybody have any tips/examples of how to combine navy and black in an ouji coord? Is it ok to do?
>>
>>8797972
yes. the trick is to make sure it looks purposeful rather than accidental. if you have a piece that has both navy and black, like a pinstripe pattern, that will help. otherwise, maybe make sure your blacks are true and will not photograph as navy.

pic related, i cannot tell which pieces are black or navy depending on the pic. if the blacks were darker, and the legwear less bright, it might look more cohesive. (it is her first ouji coord and this is a nitpick, it's not nouji at all to me, just an illustration of a black x navy coord that almost works.)
>>
>>8798093
sorry for small low res image, but here, the colors are more clearly marked. the navy blouse has a clearly black jabot and trim. you can tell there are 2 distinct colors complementing each other.

>RIPrinceclothes my whole savings for this year 2016-2016, but I don't think I'll buy anything cheaper anyway.
>>
>>8799529
that is a cool vest but i am not sure black pants would look right, especially since the navy of the vest appears to be almost a faded black, so the result might be a bit muddy. i think it can work as a first coord if that is what you have to work with, but if you are looking to buy pants i would seek a pair in a color the vest uses.

it does look like the rabbit brooch has black on it, and you might be able to bring out the black and navy with accessories that use both colors.

but honestly, if it fits your body and you carry yourself with confidence and a smile, you can get away with wearing just about anything.
>>
>>8798093
Thanks, anon! That was really helpful.

When I'll buy this vest I'll be out of money for some time so I won't be able to buy matching print pants. Maybe I should something else? Tho I was kind hyped to find something (less)expensive that looks pretty.

>>8801329
>I won't be able to buy matching print pants.
for a busy print like that i would recommend a solid color, just a color that is used in the print (a matching shade of blue, white, or red, for example).

i think if you really like this vest and have the funds, better to get it while you can and save up for different pants. finding a good print for boystyle is very difficult, and stuff like that hardly ever shows up secondhand so once it's sold out you might be SOL. you are taking a risk either way, but it is not like you're getting married, they're just clothes.

good luck and post results!

do you have an unusual style, like mature sweet, punk, or dolly-kei/classic fusion?

Actually with some super stalking I found a more recent photo of her dressed up.

i spoke to some indie lolita designers in the Marketplace at RuffleCon when i went last October, and various indie Western brands saw the sizable boystyle turnout this year and said they would definitely bring more ouji stock next time.

what indie designers would you like to see boystyle stuff from? i do not remember if i asked her specifically but i like Lily of the Valley's work and coords. her take on boystyle could be cool.

i like this coat, but never heard of the brand before:

reposting the poll i made regarding future gens: http://strawpoll.me/6136158/r

i figure unless people in this thread are annoyed at aristo questions and discussions, nothing needs to change. there is also no reason to prevent the one male EGA wearer who would prefer to post in an EGA gen from doing so (they said they wear both femme and masc aristo). the amount of discussion and interest in male gothic styles in general is so low it seems a nonissue; people can post where they like if each thread accepts the discussion.

for me, my EGA has more in common with ouji and overlaps with it, which is what i also see happening in Japanese communities and in brand marketing.

but i noticed the lolita gen called this the "ouji" thread rather than the boystyle thread, which previous lolita gen OPs did not do. so i worry someone will try to force an issue where there isn't one and would appreciate /ouG/'s thoughts.

get it together, Japan
>>
>>8829555
and yes, the kanji literally refers to those coords as "amai ouji," it is not just the English.

how do boystyle substyles even work, outside of gothic? i am trying to collect scans for a presentation and so much seems to conflict.

also, Buttcape's blog is back
>>
>>8829555
That fjord vest is so huge on that girl.

I think the styles end up being that >>8829554
is classic since it plays up 'vintage' items such as the suspenders and the hat. While >>8829555 is sweet since its white and they are more cute looking? Idk just because they label it for kera spread doesnt mean that they are hard labels.
>>
AatP continues its trend of one-size-only, but it is a nice tartan set without too much trim abuse.
>>
>>8829745
>While >>8829555 (You) # is sweet since its white and they are more cute looking?
i think they might be seen as sweet due to being more fanciful or fantasy-like, while the ones labelled classic have, like you say, a vintage look.

unrelated, Connie Tuttle is a new favorite ouji. i feel like recently, many lolitas have been crossing into boystyle and elevating the overall "look" of it in the Western community.

>9th page. we're really slow!
what are good taobao stores for ouji? (read as; cheap and no ss required)
>>
>>8832716
>what are good taobao stores for ouji?
some taobao shops, like infanta, sell on AliExpress. Infanta is all i know personally.
>>
I would like to start wearing ouji to school but there's a problem: the field I am studying is very dusty and I need to change my clothes before going to the workshop. Sometimes I have to chance back and forth few times during the day. What I need is clothes that could be easily taken off. I'm lookin mosty casual coords and if it matters, I'm a girl.

For short, post some pictures of (casual) ouji coords that can be changed easily to other clothes.
>>
>>8832893
Just don't wear it to school and Wear it in your free time.
>>
>>8832804
I know infanta. Tho their prics on Ali Are twice as big as on taobao. Do you know any other shops on Ali?

>>8832893
I plan to wear casual ouji at uni too!
>>
>>8832893
Why put so much effort into changing instead of just dressing for your field? Jfash isnt meant to be easy to undress.

I need to change anyway so there won't be any more effort. I just want to be more classy when we have classes outside the workshop and when walking around the campus.
>>
>>8832978
I think you underestimate what you would need to do. Casual ouji is very iffy because it can easily fall into nouji, so you will have to keep a level of complexity to the outfits. Which of course will make it more work to change.

Like many people have this idea that they will wear like lolita to school everyday but when it comes down to it there are so much more practical things to wear. Ouji is going to be the same way, you are going to have a fuck it point where you wont want the hassle especially if you are knee deep in the semester.
>>
>>8830485
I get it is the whole no makeup look but it looks so weird to have only half of an eyebrow.
>>
>>8832978
Just wear it outside of classes, such as at weekends. Like >>8832991 says, it can all to easily fall into being 'nouji' territory, and you'll end up looking scuffier than you otherwise would were to you say, look for a nice smart-casual look. Plus, that would likely be more comfortable. Especially when you ahve a full day of classes. Besides, what you think of as being 'classy' others might not see it as such.
I've been in the uni environment for over ten years now, and I wear both femme and homme aristocrat, with a little bit of lolita. Trust me, save the style for free time. Dress nicely by all means during class, but really go to town outside of classes.

Well sorry for asking pics of simple ouji outfits, won't do it again

i don't know about the "easily changed" part but here is a small casual inspo dump. may not fit the bill for true ouji at times.
>>
>>8833235
pic related is not casual, but it is ultra simple and would be easy to change in and out of. it is also obviously ouji, not just a blouse and short pants.

Is aquaphobicsailor very tall or is she just very skinny and proportionate? I wish I could do a coord like that but I'm the short-thick leg type so I'd look stumpy.

I'm not crazy about the white and off white together.

Very skinny.

That's not aquaphobicsailor though, that's victorianme. They're both quite skinny.

approaching autosage, would like to get useful info together for the next OP. also, buttcape's blog is not completely back; the Ouji Overview is still offline. (godammit...)

>PROPOSED TEMPLATE

Last thread reached autosage [or image cap]: [link]

This thread is for ouji and aristocrat (aka "boystyle") discussion. Boystyle refers to the masculine counterparts of lolita and aristocrat fashions. There is a lot of overlap between these styles, and different people use different terms to describe them. Consider this a thread for those whose style is on the right half of Buttcape's Lolita Family Triangle: http://www.kawacura.com/moripress/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/0dmmLH6-350x350.jpg

pic for ants, but this spread features "Preppy Ouji." as usual, KERA is on crack.

that was a glaring omission, haha

What kind of hairstyle and makeup do you like/recommend for ouji fashion?

So my BF wants to wear this style when I wear Lolita. According to >>8779446 he should be wearing the style technotropism wears. He's 185cm with a slim figure.

Only problem is, I'm not sure where he can get a coat like >>8761212. What is this style of coat called? I can see one type of coat like this on F+F, but it's not very descriptive other than "long coat". Is there a specific name for this? Would appreciate any help!
>>
>>8836100
That's a Roland coat from Atelier Boz, fan+ friend does a replica
>>
>>8836214
f+f one is a poor replica. Boz has a long and short version as well as a ladys and men's size. There are many colors/fabric options as they rerelease the style often.
>>
>>8836100
>>8836919

Rolands aren't exactly cheap, but they are worth it. They're wonderful coats. I have a few of them in different styles, and >>8836919
they are very adaptable for different looks. I wear aristocrat.
>>
>>8836099
it depends on you, really. most people go for a youthful, short but full cut, with minimal/natural makeup. do what looks best for your face and coord.

>>8837492
adding to this, you can often get them under $200 on Japanese secondhand sites.
