Nouveau chez / New at “Beef+Cake” & “Shiny Things”

Two exciting bits of news today!

First, Fallingwater Cellardoor releases new shoes for men! That is great, because the last release was only a few weeks ago, and we were not used to being spoiled like that at Shiny Things! This new creation is sculpty based, so each shoe is only 17 prims. Sculpties free the creativity of the content creators, but make the texturing way more difficult. The shoes are original and show a bright sheen. Well, they are the exact opposite of “Old Shoes” from the same brand! :-) The triple straps and buckles give them a sporty look, even though they can be used with an official outfit.

They come in 5 colors (shown) and are sold for 325 Lindens per color; each color pack offers 3 sizes and you can get a free demo in the store to be sure they will fit your avatar.

Second, Nessinger Loveless, owner and designer of T..a..R..t., clothing for women, just started a range for men under the name “Beef+Cake”. She offers basics, but very nicely done. Jeans and V-neck sweaters are nicely textured and show a high level of finish. I’ve rarely seen in men’s clothing seams of such quality and such a perfect collar, flawlessly drawn.

The jeans come in 4 color tones (shown) and the sweaters in 7. (5 of them are shown below, you can see a “Gray” and a “Chocolate” in the store as well.)

The sweaters come on the jacket layer with a base on the shirt layer. This base gives some volume to the sleeves. Well, all the faithful readers of SL Men know that I appreciate particularly this kind of attention to details! :-) The garment pieces are set to “Copy-Modify-No transfer,” with the surprising exception of the sweater base which is no modify. It could allow to tweak precisely the length for a perfect finish if it was “modify,” but, hey, you can use another base if you are as obsessed as I am, like the one you can get at SL Men HQ.

The price of these quality basics is more than fair: 100 Lindens for a pair of jeans, 100 Lindens for a sweater and its base. For sure, the arrival of Nessinger on the men’s market will seriously challenge the men’s fashion designers! :-)

I chose one more time a hair from Aitui to go along with this basic outfit, and some jewelry from Goth1c0 and Jewelry Mhaijik things.
