High Society’s (SF Design’s branch for formals) new Hamilton Tux is an amazing mix of layers and sculpty attachments, allowing for customization. You get the jacket on the jacket layer, shirt for bowtie on the undershirt layer, shirt for prim collar on the undershirt layer, tux shirt with textured tie on the undershirt layer (shown), vest with sleeve filler on the shirt layer (shown), vest and waistcoat on the shirt layer, with sculpty prim attachments for collar and tie, and bowtie; pants with leg prim attachments both large and slimmer, and the ingenious back flap for the jacket in small, medium and large to avoid that clingy look SL jackets sometimes get. You also get a tuxedo coat in large and slimmer fit (not shown). I opted for the back flap and the short jacket, although when trying on the coat, I was able to appreciate the inner lining in a colorful tartan matching the vest, lapel trim, hanky and tie.

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

Kudos to swaffette for taking on the painstaking task of hand drawing and matching a complex tartan (Robertson Red Ancient, I think?). Seams are pretty smooth, with the belt buckle distracting the eye where the seam could be more obvious. Well done.

I share Ben’s enthusiasm for the new line of hair from MADesigns. Shown here is Garrett, in one of the silver tones. I’m impressed with MADesign’s short styles and good use of flexi (a nice flexi piece on top seems particularly natural!).

I’m finishing off this outfit with the black City Walk shoes from Shiny Things (I wish these were script resizable), and a nice titanium ring from Mhaijik Guillaume.

  4. Thanks, maddox. You make the coolest short hair!

    Agree, Ben, about the City Walk shoes. They are classic, I think, and I sometimes forget about them.

    You’re welcome, swaffette! It is an excellent tux. Thank you!
