Morphine Janick, under her brand “Sweetest Goodbye,” offers a small but interesting collection for men. Her pieces show creativity and are quite nicely done. She offers her items in a wide choice of vibrant colors. The “Monocrom” series offers jacket/shirt combos with prim collar and ties, as well as pants with sculpty cuffs. I chose to mix Red pants with an Ivory jacket (with a black open shirt). Morphine’s creations show a true personality; I just wish the pants didn’t show the “jagged bottom bug,” which forces one to use the provided sculpted cuffs. Unfortunately, sometimes these cuffs are a bit tricky to adjust on certain shoes, and, at this level of price, we can ask for pants textures that avoid the bug, it’s so easy!

Maris Kanto for “Kalnins” extends his range of men’s dress shoes with the “Marteno.” Very realistic, showing these men’s classic shoes for the first time in sl. They are totally adjustable by script (menu driven). You will have the choice between 11 colors, two shininess levels, and as much size as you need to harmonize with your avatar size! Remember to always set your feet to zero when you wear shoes for a perfect fitting! I just miss a deep red in the color palette, as well as a true dark brown. The browns and red offered are nice, but don’t match the classic men’s color palette. Anyway, at 500 Lindens for 11 colors, these nice shoes are a steal! Copy, no transfer.

Gospel Voom, the designer behind “Elite Prim Watch,” calls himself a “Watch fetishist.” It shows! His watches are carefully crafted, with a high level of precision, and a large prim count: 139, no less! Quality has a price, even on the Avatar Rendering Cost matter. I ‘m showing today “Steel Windrider.” It comes in 3 colors for the background, moddable by script. Useless to tell that the watch gives the time, and that you can set any timezone of your choice. 1295 Lindens for a watch in sl could seem a lot, but according to the fact that you get three different versions in one, and comparing to usual house building with the same amount of prims, well, it sounds almost reasonable! Gospel’s watches are resizable to fit your avatar perfectly, and are transfer for easy gifting!
