Old Thread >>9094080

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. So, 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

Hey so I am trying to understand the difference between a busby and a bearskin and am not having much luck with research. From what I can gather so far is that the bearskin is taller and both hats we worn in different contexts (by different people, countries or regimen). Aside from that I can't find anything else out about different defining features and in many cases the names are used interchangeably,

I always thought they were all called busby's until I read your post, now I don't want to call it the wrong thing! Can you help an anon out.

side note to keep it relevant: Does anyone know if they are planning to release this hat? Both my mum and I decided I should get it if they do when we saw pics from the show. I've wanted to coord fur hats with military for ages.

Sick of being called Ciel? Be Lady Oscar. Or Utena. Or defy those Kuroshitheads and be the O.G. ouji, Cain Motherfucking Hargeaves, the EGAest motherfucker in England.
>Baker, candyman, chocolatier
AP might never release anything ouji but their OTKs work just as well with half-pants
>Shironuri clown
None of your shit matches or fits right anyway
>John Leigh

so i started (re)reading it because of this thread and read everything up to the end of the Red Ram arc (everything before Godchild begins). the number of twins, lookalikes, split or multiple personalities, and general cases of mistaken identity is too damn high. for a mangaka with such a distinctive, fashionable art style i feel like the repeated plot twists involving "true" identities makes a weird kind of sense. there is a thesis' worth of material here, i am sure of it.

My understanding is the Busby is shorter, and can even be somewhat cloth and floppy. Though the original Hungarian versions were stiff, tgey were only about as tall as they were wide, and almost always had a feather. As opposed to the bearskins, there are a wide variety of Busby's, a more armies fielded them.

Bearskins of course are tall, never floppy, almost never feathered.
>>
>>9242689
Continuing, the original Hungarian Busby is noticeably different from the bearskins of the British grenadiers and French imperial guard. Notice the cloth and feather/plum, the flat top and how it's only slightly taller than wide. Hussars of most Nations had hats like this, including the famous Death's Head Hussars.

British infantry, especially early light infantry and rifle regiments worry a 'busby' that was floppy and almost entirely or wholly cloth. It's stupid and they should feel bad for calling it that. It did have a feather though.

I went cat-themed ouji. Also learned how to properly tie a tie for the first time.

The entire night I had "Ah, It's a Wonderful cat Life!" in my head, it was a bit unfortunate. I met up with a small group of lolitas by chance at a Halloween party on campus, so that was a lot of fun.

>tfw someone says they want their SO to wear something "more grown up than boystyle"

Fucker it is not literal children's clothes. The word just means male version of whatever is being discussed (usually, lolita). That is it. Lolitas should know better than to assume a Japanese term for something is meant to be taken literally in English. They should also know better than to assume that "cute, sweet" substyles represent the whole spectrum. Not every "boy's style" in pic related is cutesy (though the ouji one is pretty damn cute).

Don't get me started on people who say ouji doesn't have substyles. It's the same fucking clothes, made by the same fucking brands, and mirrors lolita. The only reason substyles for ouji aren't more commonly discussed is because most people treat ouji as a substyle of lolita instead of a companion style.

There are GLB/Kera spreads that differentiate between sweet, gothic, and classic ouji, and Japanese oujis use the word to refer not just to sweet cutesy stuff but for head-to-toe Boz.

>tfw someone calls one classic coord "kodona" and another one "aristocrat" because one has shorts and the other has pants
>tfw someone wears a bunch of bows and OTT gaudy trim but it's black so they call it gothic ouji
>tfw someone wears pastel fairy kei and says they just invented sweet ouji

It's not that hard, guys...
>>
>>9242834
>still using the term "kodona"
>>
>>9242834
Thank you for posting this. I was starting to think I was the only one who felt this way.
>>
>>9242834
If people are calling ouji/boystyle "kodona" just because some idol described his style that way then they should also follow Melanie Martinez lead and refer to lolita as "adult baby".
>>
>>9242842
>>9242930
The stupidest thing is people who are corrected will insist kodona is easier to say than ouji, while pronouncing it kuh-dough-nuh and/or spelling it "kodana." Like... How is this less complicated than saying oh-gee? Just how??

>>9242856
I am glad others feel this way also. It's so frustrating to see the terms misused on basically every EGL community platform.

overskirts or other layering for the androgynous/glamrock EGA look, with long hair, can be cozy.

buttcape's blog (address is in OP) has a shopping guide which includes links to Taobao shops that sell ouji items. that is how i found the Amastacia one before i got distracted looking for things for myself. would recommend looking through there!
>>
Elegy quietly released another aristo-friendly item, an unfitted long vest remniscent of a priest's cassock. because it is not fitted, i would not recommend it for ouji; but flowy silhouettes fit well with aristo.

and the sizing is customizable. big western aristos, check it out: http://www.elegyclothing.com/c-o-l-l-e-c-t-i-o-n-s/black-mass-long-vest?category=BLACK%20†%20MASS

starting price is 150USD

why don't Aristocrats opt for the sort of open neckline Mana sometimes uses? EGA as he deminstrated it embraced sexually ambiguous/ambivalent signals without becoming crass. i would even say that a "freer body" is a significant element in what differentuates EGA coords from lolita/ouji coords.

>implying the average Anglosphere Aristocrat could sport a bare chest tastefully
>implying the dominant "Neo-Victorian" aesthetic of current Aristocrats isn't indicative of the psychic Puritanism that haunts the Western EGL community

This question is probably asked in every ouji-thread, but here I go anyway

I've been considering starting to wear more ouji/aristocrat, what is the best way to start and what should I keep in mind when making an outfit?
>>
>>9242842
where does this term even come form? kodomo + otona?
>>
>>9250391
yes and it was used by a singer to describe his personal aesthetic. later a different singer used it for her genki, kawaii style.

it has nothing to do with ouji and has been used by a label by Western people due to 1. a misinterpretation of that singer's remarks, and 2. stubborn refusal to accept correction.

Anon you replied to, I love the stripey ones especially wine/red, curious why you think they're bad? tho I agree the pink tartan is hideous

I guess it's because I hate that bright red shade. I'd have much preferred if the majority of the pants was darker red.

flatter/very thin hairstyles were more common, as well as traditional fabric patterns. gothic might go more bold with its pleather and netting but i think most ouji involved traditional fabrics.

stopping in with this from Volume 1 of the GLB, which refers to the shirt and short pants on the far right upper corner as ouji (the gauze frill shorts are "pretty ouji" if my kana is correct). if any Japanese speakers want to take a crack at translating, small bits like this tell the reader how to dress so it could be instructive as to what made oldschool ouji.

gothic ouji in the middle. the long straight lightened hair seem to go with the more gothic ouji coords from this time. shorts are also more often open at the hem instead of fitted, for a baggy look, but that is not a universal trait. just more common in oldschool than now.

Do anoy of you think some less otp steampunk stuff could work for certain styles of ouji? a lot of the coats and such especially look like there'd be crossover, like this one as a quick example i just saw. But then I'm, really not the best at this so I thought it would be best to ask. With the right accessories and makeup and the rest of the outfit I think it could work in a lot of cases, especially considering how tiny most japanese made stuff tends to be
>>
>>9254322
The Ouji is Sisen! I love how in old snaps people mix existing gothic and punk items (like the trousers in >>9259246) but the aesthetic is spot on. Of.coirse I am aware back then their range of choices were limited so they had to be creatively. But that is how coordinations should be, not wearing head to toe of what a brand has prepared for you.
>>
>>9259820
neo-victorian menswear in general is fine if it is well-made. see >>9259960's comment about how oldschool oujis made do with what was available.

just avoid the ita elements, don't overpay (mens gothic clothes in the west is shit for the prices companies charge, imo, compared to brands like Boz or Moitie), and don't give up on indie brands that do custom sizing.

a while page of ouji style guide from volume 8, when gothic was obviously the dominant fashion force.

i am surprised how many ouji guides the early-2000s GLBs had. i am only finding random scanned pages online and yet they are abundant enough to make me sort of annoyed that the western EGL community ignored it for so many years, choosing instead to talk about nonsense like "dandy" and "kodona" based on, in each case, a single misunderstood image.

you might be right. the gold embroidery and the lace at the bottom do not fit well with the Roland. i think if the sash were longer/looser (less horizontally wrapped) and the short pants replaced with something more military-ish instead, with non-sheer legwear, this would be improved.

i appreciate its lack of matchy-matchiness but those elements do not work as well with the apparent theme

>>9312759
the false vest front kind of bugs me, need to see it on a person.

>>9311807
I'm working on it. Trying to find the right accessories.

>>9310538
I'm not stopping you from doing it, I'm just saying it's probably going to look bad. The styles are too different, and cowboys aren't exactly known for there elegance. Someone could conceivably pull it off, but there's a reason it isn't as popular as the other themes. But do whatever floats your boat.

The false vest front is too wide and open.

>>9312953
Agreed. What an odd choice.
