How do you call this fashion style?

Hi,
I'm still a bit new in the scene and still trying to find my way... including my own personal fashion style.
I'm in my thirties and yes, that means things don't get easier. I'm not into Cybergoth and lean more towards Victorian. Well, I would be if it wasn't too sombre for my taste. Anyway, as I said: still finding my way.
Luckily there's internet
I stumbled upon a picture of a guy with an interesting mix of clothes... As it happens to be I have the exact same skirt. Wearing a corset (being a male) seems daring but I'm tempted to give it a try.
(I'm not sure but he is wearing a corset, right?)



Overall I like his style...
Can you name this style? It looks like a mix of several styles to me but perhaps I'm wrong... It would be nice if someone could name it, would make googling a lot easier

-G.

It reminds me of steampunk a little, but I think it's a bit more industrial goth? I'm not really sure but googling 'industrial goth' garners some similar results to the photo you've posted here.

Men wearing corsets is nothing new, it is quite useful for men who want to appear slimmer.

Thanks for replying

It has got some cosplay elements and indeed, industrial elements as well... But the bondage skirt makes it hard to determine.
Oh well, I don't have to know what it's called, the important thing is I like it
BTW, I purchased a corset and really love it! I never would have guessed but I seem to feel comfortabel in clothing with some feminine elements. I guess I will be further exploring that formerly unknown aspect of my personality

Dawg.

There is no Unisex. There is only, "Do I have enough swag to rock this girl jacket?"

Man, I look great in girl jackets. And not really even feminine, either--I think it contrasts well with my masculinity. If it works, it works, you know what I'm sayin'?
