Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Akeyo,” “Kalrau,” and “Style Starts Here”

Okay, we all know there are lots of jeans to be found in Second Life, and it’s easy to argue that no more are needed, but when there’s something unique about a usually common piece of clothing, I think an exception can be made. These jeans from Kalrau are *ahem* very nicely shaded, with a quilted texture at the knees. They come in a belted and unbelted version, with small, medium and large versions of both a closed and open prim belt. I chose open to show here. It was fairly easy to position to look natural, but maybe a prim left and prim right section of the belt would allow for more variation in avatar size. I love this idea, I have to admit. I think it’s fun and, depending on where you are, could be a real conversation starter!

With the black jeans, I chose this 1957 Dublin jacket from Style Starts Here. This shop continues to be a real goldmine for inexpensive, multi-layer clothing, with a great selection of men’s stuff. Worn as the shirt layer with the waistband on the underpants layer, I was able to show off the prim belt. Simone always does a nice job with shading and detail, and there’s so much to choose from at SSH. Take a look and round out your wardrobe with good basics to mix and match.

Rounding out this outfit is the sharp Sun’s Gate watch from Fim Fischer, the recently featured AKIDAZ shoes from Akeyo, and Muse hair in black from Defectiva.

Enjoy!

Nouveau chez / New from: “Akeyo”, “Dinzeo Designs”, & “Studio Sidhe”

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Dinzeo Designs recently released this nicely textured argyle sweater hoodie, featuring sculpty attachments for hood, cuffs, front pockets and waistband. I’m not usually thrilled with hoodie cuffs or pockets, but I like these for a couple of reasons. First, the waistband (easily adjustable, by the way) has a stretched out look to it that makes it look more natural and realistic to me. Second, the texture of the front pockets reminds me of those soft leather patches you sometimes see on the elbows of jackets. I also like the kind of attention to detail like the ends on the hoodie ties. (This might be picky, but I’d almost like an eyelet where the tie enters the fabric of the hood to give it a nicer finish that matches the rest of the sweater design.) It’s interesting to note that the only thing photosourced on this sweater is the zipper! An excellent example of handdrawn SL fashion.

Completing this ensemble from Dinzeo is a pair of jeans, with a baggy wrinkled effect, highlighted with sculpty side pockets. Good seamwork and shading, and an interesting pairing of photosourced work with the handdrawn sweater. You get both the sweater and jeans for only 200 Lindens!

Akeyo really are masterful at sneakers, and these new AKIDAZ are well done as expected, with the trademark untied laces, and the ease of changing color by script. The nice part is being able to change the color of all the shoe parts. (I wasn’t real adventurous here and went with black, grey and white, but know there are many color choices, in any number of combinations, each shoe colored individually….GO WILD.)

I complemented this outfit with the Silver Surfy Wave Pendant from Studio Sidhe, a black enameled silver pendant with a simple wave motif, and the Kavi Poet Ring from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Enjoy!

Nouveau chez / New at: “Kalrau”

Kal Rau, one of my favorite SL designers, has really been producing a lot of new stuff lately! He has a new line of casual men’s clothing, including these black cargo shorts, with a subtle black and grey striped design and sculpty side pockets. They look cool coming just below the knee. His textures are amazing, very detailed and realistic.

The shirt looks comfortably worn, with a grey 3/4 length sleeve shirt underneath and a faded star design in navy blue.

With these new pieces, I’m wearing the Patagonia hiking boots from Hoorenbeek, in black, the free SF Designs hiking socks, tinted to match the shirt, the adjustable Black Titanium Men’s bracelet from Dahlink’s, and Titanium with Black ring from Mhaijik Guillaume. Finishing it off, the Knight hairstyle in Twilight from Exile.

Enjoy!
