Jamie’s Wedding Shirt

Jamie’s Wedding Shirt


Have you ever seen the show Outlander?

The premise is WWII nurse meets 18th century Jacobite kilt wearing hottie and is forced into marriage with him in order to avoid torture from her 20th century husband’s ancestor.

Bigamy and kilts, what could be better, right?

I was totally addicted to the series this summer and so you can image my dismay and distraught when I realized the mid series break  will last 7 months!

Who does this?

Anyhooo, to appease my jonesing I was compelled to create the shirt worn by Jamie on his wedding night.

Now your man can look as hot as Jamie.

You’re Welcome.

Pair with one of our VM Kilts, Miltary Frock Coats and Steampunk Pocket Vests and presto! bango! you’ll have one hot bf on your hands.

Black Cotton & Vegan Leather Military Frock Coat


Good Day Gentlemen (and the ladies who love them),

I would like to bring your attention to the VM signature MILITARY FROCK COAT. This is a timeless and versatile piece that can be taken to the office for that Goth Business Casual look or worn for more illustrious occasions such as weddings, prom or just because you look hot in it. (right, ladies?)

Anyhooo.. the reason I’m bringing it up is I just made a new batch of these beauties in Carmel and Chocolate Brown Jacquard and they’re going fast. It’s all about the fit  with these. So you need to get your butt down to VM (324 W. Hastings) and slip into one.

After all, I only make what I want to see you wearing!

IHS (I have spoken),

Gay Bride Day! A Pride #ThrowBackThursday

Gay Bride Day! A Pride #ThrowBackThursday…

The following is an article that first appeared in The Georgia Straight on July 29, 1999 to celebrate Pride. The gowns featured are designed by Sanné Lambert (that’s me) for Venus&Mars Clothing. 1999 was the year the world was supposed to end. I think it was something to do with the computers not being able to reset themselves and therefor we were all supposed to explode. It was a big deal at the time. Apparently so was gay marriage. I’m glad we’re able to take these things for granted now…
