I’m always impatient to get new releases from JCS. Eponymous Trenchmouth, Chief Executive Cobbler, takes his time to polish his shoes and boots before releasing them, regardles of the whining of the fans begging for new stuff. But waiting is worth it! This time, we get hiking boots, with both leather and mesh technical fabrics, with serious soles done to face any terrain. They are made completely with “classic prims,” 142 of them for a pair, each carefully assembled with others with a double target: fit the poor sl male feet, and look good. Epy reached his goal, as usual. Note that these boots fit easily long pants without the need to set them excessively baggy. Obviously, the hand drawn textures are perfectly aligned on the prims, and the maker’s sense of detail is part of the pleasure of owning these boots. They come in 6 colors, shown below (plus “Sand,” not shown), and offer a resizer script inside, menu driven, like in every new production from JCS.

Quality: 5/5 - Style-Originality: 4.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price:4/5 - Value for money: 4.5/5

Also showing a cool Tattoo from “Devol,” “Rock&Fire” (see details below), a simple but elegant bracelet from “Guilaume pour homme,” and one more outfit from “Dinzeo Designs,” “Janus,” which offers for a low 175 Lindens a nice V-neck sweater and jeans, with high quality texturing. You really have to stop by the shop and take a look at the large collection of more than fairly priced items sold here, in a large palette of style, from punky to casual, with a few more dressy pieces. I chose to wear an older hair from “The Good Life” which is still very good. Hey, the newest stuff isn’t always necessarily the best!
