edo Tone’s new suit for 2009 is a good, nicely textured and shaded classic black suit (also available in blue, red and white). There are many color combinations to choose from, shirt and tie combos and different color hankies on the suit jacket. I’m showing it here with a white shirt and black tie featuring a cool Styles of edo logo. (These are the kind of details that are really appreciated. I think the flying horse logo really adds to the overall look of the suit.) Another thing I appreciate about edo’s suits is that the details like collar, cuffs and buttons, are drawn, not prim attachments which frankly can look awkward without perfect adjustment. I chose the jacket with the silver hankie to show here. The black pants have a nice belt that shows through the slightly opened jacket bottom. Again, a nice touch that gives this suit character.
Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 3/5 - Price: 4/5 - Value for money: 4/5
I chose the Allen shoes in black from Hoorenbeek (reviewed in depth recently by Ben). Nice dress shoes, but the lack of a tie is a little disconcerting. Still, there aren’t a lot of good classic dress shoes for men in SL, and these are a great choice to wear with a suit.
Finishing off the look, the Sofia glasses from PrimOptics (yes, I admit, they’re a favorite accessory), and the Akami hair (resizeable by script, always a good touch, especially for new players, but still moddable) from MADesign. Note that Madesigns hair are from now on designed for a zero sized head meaning you can shrink them a lot to fit your avatar, even with a tiny head That’s really appreciated, since I’ve noticed some hair can’t be shrunk enough due to the SL limitations for prim size.
