Guest’s Outfit of the day

I like the classic lines of this Redgrave suit; it reminds me of the 1950’s Ratpack era and occasionally retro-chic is essential. Wearing the suit with an open collar shirt rather than the tie reduces the formality whilst still retaining an air of sophistication. The suit is packed with many variations enabling mixing and matching with other items of clothing, an essential in my book.

The FNKY shoes are amongst the best in SL; they come in a wide range of sizes to fit all feet. This is necesary to prevent seams of flesh seeping out of shoes that are too small. All shoes should either be modified or come in a range of sizes if they are to fit correctly; sadly, there are many that don’t. I opted for the buckle style as I felt it gave the shoes a more contemporary feel and further reduced the formality of the suit.

I was looking for classic elegance within a relaxed style; I think the clothes provide it.

  1. Quite like this suit, but as I’ve heard, Redgrave seems a hair on the pricey side. I’m a sucker for open white shirts on men, ;)
