What an interesting find!

The problem with these sorts of outfits is that you have to get the whole nine yards, or it doesn't quite look right.

Well, I suppose there's always room for a Victorian suit or two in the wardrobe. The walking sticks seem like a sure bet though.

I disagree. These clothes aren't 'costumey', so I see how one can incorporate these clothing with what one already has in their closet. It requires a discriminating eye and impeccable taste.

I'd be happy to help.

Well I was thinking mainly of items that could be integrated with little fuss into a standard three-button business suit (shirt, tie, jacket, pants, pocket square, etc). I already employ a pocket watch and fedora occasionally, and there's not much else that could be added, really.

Unless I was going to aim for an all-Victorian suit, of course.

Some of those shirts would work really well on those business casual days when a tie is not required. The ones with Mandarin collars would work well under a three button single-breasted business suit.
