First off, my biggest tip is to not just throw on goggles and gears unless they have an actual purpose.
Onto the link you posted. I think it's pretty damned cool. If you were doing something like some sort of fighter, maybe making your own military character or the very common sky pirate, you could do that weaving out of leather (or vinyl) and use it as a leather breastplate armor piece. Then you could pair it with a good shirt and coat, pants with boots over them, utility or gun holster belts, gloves, maybe a hat, and actually goggles would work with that.
The great thing with steampunk is that it's an open field you can take liberties with.
