Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” by Shai Delacroix: Le Smoking Croc Trenchcoat

New release at Casa Del Shai! With “Le Smoking Croc Trenchcoat,” Shai Delacroix offers us luxurious leather trench coats, with tux pants and complementary shirts with tie.

What I regret: due to a little prim in the buckle with the minimum size permitted, it’s impossible to shrink the tail and belt prim attachment. All you can do is to stretch it. I was able to fit almot perfectly the attachment on my avatar, which is pretty thin compared to the average male avie in SL, but guys who chose a smaller avatar than mine could get a bit frustrated, or would have to edit the tail linked part by linked part. That could be pretty tedious!

What I love: the impeccable style, Shai’s mark for sure; the superb textures; the colors, true and vibrant without being loud, terribly “real.”

Many designers should be inspired by Shai Delacroix’s talent with designing colors. Sure, it’s easier to set a color quickly with the SL sliders and make the pieces of garment no modify, to avoid the customers changing the color themselves… how mean… Serious designers like Shai embed the color in their texture after a real work of colorist… This is obviously not the same amount of work.

The trench coats come in 4 colors (black, brown, red and green), each with a different sort of leather. They are made in three components, jacket layer, flexi prim tail and belt attachment, and fur collar flexi prim attachment. Each pack includes a shirt with tie (colored to create a harmony with the trenchcoat) and a pair of black dress pants.

The attachments, pants and shirt are moddable. Perms are copy-no transfer. Each trench coat (with complementary shirt and pants) is sold for 700 Lindens.

  1. Awesome I have to go buy this now! I love that Shai isn’t afraid to use snake skin as a texture, most designers would stick to the generic brown for a trenchcoat. Thanks for posting this Ben :)
