Tenue de Rentrée / Back to School outfit: “Kalnins,” “Kalrau,” “Ottico,” “Robin (Sojourner) Wood”…

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Semi-Casual | Sunday, August 31st, 2008

The Gallop Shoes from Kalnins are script controlled, where you can choose from eleven colors (light blue, light brown, white (shown on main composite), blue, green, light green, and grey, as well as brown, magenta, black and brown grey (shown in second composite). By clicking the left shoe, you can also control size, choosing from small, medium or large preset sizes as well as Size- and Size+ for fine tuning the size manually, and position control. Lastly, you can control the shininess (shininess is set to ‘off’ here), as well as accessing the landmark for Kalnins and choosing whether or not you want a walking sound (I find walking sounds unnerving in SL, personally).

These shoes are unique, featuring uncommon colors (although some classic colors are missed, like dark brown, burgundy, maybe a true dark blue), a long narrow shape so unlike most SL shoes for men that it’s almost disturbing, and a sharp design that matches both dressy slacks and jeans. They are copy/no trans, a great bargain since you get all eleven colors for only 500L.

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

This grey cardigan from Kalrau is stylish and comfortable looking, with typical Kalrau texturing, a soft grey sweater over a subdued green plaid shirt. Because it only comes as a jacket layer, I miss having the choice of different layers, as it could conceivably be worn with a jacket over the top, or a coat. I wear sleeve fillers set at 6 to avoid “tight sleeve syndrome.”

Ottico Numero 74 glasses, also script controlled, allow you to control the frame color, with a choice of pink, green, black, red or wood (shown). A classic, sturdy shaped frame and slightly translucent lens, allowing you to easily see your av’s eye color, make these a good choice for glasses. I only wish I could adjust the opacity of the lenses.

Completing this outfit are jeans from Robin (Sojourner) Wood, available for a mere 50L, masterfully textured and tinted a dark grey, a ring from Mhaijik Guillaume’s found objects series, Exile’s Echo hairstyle in Greystone, and a bag sadly no longer available from Republik (sorry).
