I’m introducing today the first dress shoes for men created under the brand “Simone!” by Lissa Maertens. For a first try, they are simply great. The textures are nice; the seams between the prims are pretty good. They offer a classic but original style.
They are offered in three colors (brown, black and the “Cordovan” shown below). They are copy no transfer and resizable by menu.
I have to mention their totally more-than-fair price: 200 Lindens per color. Demos are available for one Linden, so they’re worth a try!
You will find them in the main space at “Simone!” — the one where you land, not in the men’s section. (I wish this shop were easier to browse, I swear! It may be me, but it takes me forever each time I try to find something at “Simone!” - Lissa, Simone, do something!)
For my outfit, I used the many times updated “Form” suit series by Adam Soler for “Lookr.”
All the separates offer many options:
Blazers come on every possible layer: jacket, shirt, undershirt, plus complement on the underpants layer. Three colors are available.
Trousers come on pants and underpants layers, plus two pairs of pre-sized and moddable cuffs: standard and flared. Three colors available.
Shirts some in closed version, open versions in three sub-versions: to wear with or without prim collar, plus a rolled sleeve version, each on jacket, shirt, undershirt layer, plus a complement on the underpants layer. You will get in the pack as well a pair of cuffs, and two prim collars, for closed and open shirt version! 4 colors are available.
Everything is moddable and copy-no transfer. Many add-ons are available to complete “Form”: ties and alternative shirts’ cuffs… Probably one of the most versatile outfits available. I like this series a lot, as it’s really different from what you can get everywhere, and it’s a pure creation, without any RL “close inspiration” as we can see too often on the grid now.
Plus a cool hair by Aemilia Case for “Philotic Energy,” the new “Damiani” blonde skin “Angel” you will soon discover in a dedicated post (as soon as possible, I promise!) and not so new but still interesting jewelry with animated textures from “Guillaume pour Homme.”
