This outfit is remarkable as a result of the color. First, it uses a very bright color, which is always welcome in steampunk. Secondly, the color is so well coordinated that it can't help but be striking.
This is David aka Lazuli Delacru of Vile Victorian Productions, a friend of mine from the Texas community. He's known for his great armor, but I love the combination of Victorian fashion with post-apocalyptic armor that he pulls off. Also here is another outfit with vivid colors and great color coordination. Also he's holding an owl.

This gentleman has gone for a very military look, but his uniform is made all from leather, which automatically makes it 50% more steampunk.
I love this outfit because it is so very Victorian, and because it's different from a lot of men's steampunk outfits. It makes me happy in my Jerome K. Jerome loving heart. This is apparently a gentleman named Nick Picard or Glamourdandy.
French steampunk artist Maurice Grunbaum. Again we have color, some stunning armor pieces, and great incorporation of non-Western dress.
So there are some examples of men's outfits that go beyond the "vest, top hat, and goggles" cliche. Not that there's anything wrong with a simple outfit.
