Review and Credits after the jump!

I chose this Yeti coat from “Muism,” made of many prims you have to attach all over your body for a fluffy, very original look. I didn’t have to modify any of the prims to fit my avatar, but everything is moddable, so you could do it if needed. This coat fits surprisingly well, the flexi effect is cool (although with some poses it looks a bit weird) and the overall look is a total success.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 4/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 4/5

I found some very funny T-Shirts at “Luni Designs,” “Not an Icon” is the one i’m wearing today, but I could choose “Not a model,” which is prolly one of my favs, or “I’m copybotting your boyfriend” which is the funniest one! Luni Designs is a very nice shop with odds and ends, little scripted objects, typing overriders and some art, in a dark and delicately done building. It’s really worth a visit!

Also wearing: a very cool pair of corduroy pants from “Noar” whose designer offers a short but very cool range of casuals at more than fair prices (these corduroys for 88 Lindens are just a steal); hair from “Madesigns,” which has become a reference for men’s hair within a few weeks; one of my fetish rings from “Kunstkammer;” sculpted dress shoes from “Hoorenbeek;” A skin from “Signature,” “rage.” The maker, Simple Spad, is becoming better with each release. I know he is working on a new male skin; I can’t wait!

  1. The new shoes from Hoorenbeek have really improved in look and shape - this just popped out for me.

    Yeti is such an original invention from Ice - really great work. One of the first all prim coats that I know of ~ meaning, you can actually wear it with a different jacket underneath and prims will still cover you - which is great for layering.

    Thanks for showing hair once again Ben - Ferris is one of my favourite styles and worth mentioning is that this release together with Akami comes with resize script which is not my way of resizing hair but it may help less experienced players.

  2. I’ve been wearing black Hoorenbeek dockers for formal wear till I find shoes that I really like.
    So, I just now clicked on my “SL MEN Tag on Leather thongs *touch it when worn*” , and there are my new shoes. Thanks Ben for being on top of whats going on in men’s fasion.
