Tenue de Rentrée / Back to School Outfit: “A.C. Store”, “Detour”, “Dutch Touch”, “Exile”, “Shop Therapy”…

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

CheerNo Destiny for “A.C. Store” has just released a new series of jeans “Jeans forever.” They offer some interesting features. As with many jeans now, cuffs are provided. I’m usually not fond of pants cuffs, but these rolled up cuffs can give an interesting and different look; plus, the sculpted cuffs are resizable by script, and synched with each other, so you have to adjust the size of only one of them and the other follows. No more tedious manual adjusting of prim cuffs which end with different sizes! This is a great improvement. “Jeans Forever” come in 6 colors (shown below), some are really original like “modern” and “green” (a very pale green). Each color comes in 4 finishes (shown below), including an original “drawing” which is definitely my favorite. They are copy-no trans, moddable (cuffs aren’t moddable but are menu driven). This one version is worth it, even at this price, but I’m more reserved about the “basic” finish: 230 lindens for a plain pair of jeans, even with sculpted cuffs, is a bit too much compared to what the competition offers for similar quality.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 3/5

One more new release for men at “Dutch Touch!” Iki Icarus is spoiling us, guys! She offers new sweaters with nice tone on tone stripes. They come in white, black and grey in no-copy-transfer version, or in a pack of 5 (including the colors sold separately) in a copy-no trans version. They come in both a tucked version (undershirt layer plus complement on the underpants layer), and untucked on the jacket layer. They show the usual “Dutch Touch” quality of texturing and coloring. The white one is my favorite, off white I should say, with pure white stripes. It is easily tintable to match any piece of clothing, but it looks gorgeous as is! I’m wearing it with a sleeve filler on the pictures, for a more comfy look.

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

I’ve had in my inventory this series of bag from Proda Jie for “Shop Therapy” for a little while, but I haven’t had the occasion to show them to you until now. This “messenger bag” shows a very nice photosourced texture (Proda used his own bag as a source) with cool details like the iPhone. This bag comes in many colors and patterns. It is resizable by script and fits pretty easily. Note that Proda Jie has no shop in world for now, so I gave the SLX link where you can get them in the address page.
[UPDATE] Shop Therapy is back online at BigStar! Go to this page for a direct tp [Designer & Address].

Quality: 5/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price: 2.5/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

Also showing the perfect “Jaywalker” sneakers from “Detour,” one more new hair from “Exile,” Relentless shown in Mink, glasses from “Ottico,” and a ring from “Dahlinks.” Enjoy!

  2. thanks again Ben, another great outfit.
    just wanted to let you know that I do still have a shop at the bigstar sim.
    We’ve been undergoing a redesign all sumer so it hasn’t been easy to find, but it’s near completion. I’m presently settling into my new location within the sim.
