Nouveau chez / new at: “Hoorenbeek” & “Kin”

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Sunday, February 24th, 2008

The new Hoorenbeek All Star tennis shoes are very well-made and come in an array of colors, including the sand shown here and (below) black, pink, purple and red, as well as green and blue, and (previously shown on white and camo. The detail is excellent, as well as the realism. They look quite a bit like the real thing. I look forward to the possibility of a low version as well as these high-tops. To me, high tops are always annoying with long pants on SL as you have to make the pants flare bigger than you might usually wear.

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

This new hair by Kin, Yohkoh, is cool, especially in black (of course). At only 100L a color, it’s a real bargain, too. I like the shaggy style and the flexi touch at the base in the back. You can get a fatpack as well for 600L, including colors like pink and blue. It’s in the women’s section of Kin (is there a men’s section?), but like a lot of Kin’s stuff, it works as a unisex style.

Finishing off this outfit are brown chinos from Style Starts Here and a nice striped sweater from Unknown Boutique.

  1. The detailing is, indeed, exquisite. I bought the black hi-tops because they are such classics. You do have to fiddle around a little with you pants cuffs to get the perfect fit, but regardless I’m happy with my pair. And if you then add the [hoorenbeek] gray suede jacket with red sweater, shirt, and belt, along with adding a simple pair of jeans, you’ve got the perfect preppy look for the next night out with the guys from the Frat house ;)

  2. Skall aurait-il de trop grands pieds? Hélas, les All Stars ne sont pas proposé à la taille sup. de Large. C’est un peu limite pour les messieurs chaussant grand…

  3. Le “large” est vraiment LARGE! j’ai même demandé à hoorenbeek de décaler ses tailles vers le bas, car le S est éjà très grand ;)
    Attention tes pieds doievent être réglés taille zero en more apparence. Les chaussures doivent être choisies avec un taille proportionnée à la taille d eton avatar, pas à la taille des pieds pour qu’ils ne dépassent pas des chaussures. SL a ses limites, et les pieds sont la plus grande faiblesse de nos avatars!
