Nouveau chez / New at “JCS Shoes” and new sim for Tete a Pied (plus free outfit!)

New ankle boots at JCS Shoes! Eponymous Trenchmouth offers you each time more accomplished items. He knows like no other how to work no sculpty shoes. The textures are, as usual, perfectly drawn and the build, different from left to right for a better realism, is absolutely precise. Look at the finish of the zipper, at the engraved sketch under the sole!
Soma comes in 4 versions, combinations of black and grey. You can get your favorite pair for 400 Lindens, or have them all for 900 Lindens.
They are no modify, delivered in 2 sizes. Demos are available. Perms are No-Copy from the vendors, but you can have them Copy/No-Transfer on demand. Eponymous Trenchmouth offers the most open and caring customer support ever!

Tete a Pied just opened a new sim. Gorgeous build, plenty of space to show their work. For the occasion, Roslin Petion and CJ Carnot give away a free suit for men. You could find it in the train, behind a crate. Is there a sneak preview of a future collection for men? I hope so! I love the texture! The suit parts are no-modify. Well, as you know, I hate no modify items, and i think no-modify pants are a total no-no, so i never show them on slmen. But this is a freebie… Plus, fortunately, the pants were set loose enough to fit the shoes. So i made an exception, for this time only :-D
I show you Vivant, skin for men, in the new “Late shift” version. Even the name of it is way more evocative than a simple “stubble”!
As always, a very low 500 Lindens per facial hair and skin tone.

Nouveau et Soldes chez / New and SALE at “Simone!” by Simone Stern

Yet another part of the last huge collection for men from “Simone!” For a very low 250 Lindens, you will be able to choose from 3 colors (shown) and will get 3 pieces — jacket, pants and shirt including a tie on the same layer. Each component is moddable; you will be able to fit the pants to your shoes and add a bit of volume to the sleeves of your jacket, tweaking the shirt layer underneath as well as the length of them on the jacket layer. I like the subdued tones. Simone Stern shows that it’s totally possible to offer good quality products for a very fair price!

To go along with this suit, I chose a hair by Aemilia Case for “Philotic Energy” (the hair and accessories from this designer should really be more known), the suede shoes in brown by Eponymous Trenchmouth for “JCS,” and a ring by Mhaijik Guillaume.

NOTICE: There is currently a sale on at Simone! with everything priced at 100L. Sale is on until further notice, so get over there for some excellent deals!

Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” and “Mystikal Hair Designs”

• Shai Delacroix offered us a couple weeks ago two formal tuxedos with a special Shai touch: three versions of the shirt: with untied bow tie, so very Shai LOL, regular white to wear with a prim bow tie, and with regular tie. All that in two colors, black and Leopard. I ‘m showing today Leopard which is totally original.

The fabric of the suit, with a leopard skin pattern, would be certainly terrible used by many other designer in world. Shai knew to make it chic and wearable in an offhand manner!

Pants and shirts are moddable for perfect fitting. 650 Lindens for each color.

• I’m showing you a new hair from Mystikal Faddoul. It is gently messy, neither too long, nor too short, the kind of hair i like wearing with something a bit formal, to break the look! :-) You will notice it looks great on the rear side too!

It comes in 23 colors and is offered for 250 Lindens per color.

Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” by Shai Delacroix: Le Smoking Croc Trenchcoat

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Night, Official | Monday, October 29th, 2007

New release at Casa Del Shai! With “Le Smoking Croc Trenchcoat,” Shai Delacroix offers us luxurious leather trench coats, with tux pants and complementary shirts with tie.

What I regret: due to a little prim in the buckle with the minimum size permitted, it’s impossible to shrink the tail and belt prim attachment. All you can do is to stretch it. I was able to fit almot perfectly the attachment on my avatar, which is pretty thin compared to the average male avie in SL, but guys who chose a smaller avatar than mine could get a bit frustrated, or would have to edit the tail linked part by linked part. That could be pretty tedious!

What I love: the impeccable style, Shai’s mark for sure; the superb textures; the colors, true and vibrant without being loud, terribly “real.”

Many designers should be inspired by Shai Delacroix’s talent with designing colors. Sure, it’s easier to set a color quickly with the SL sliders and make the pieces of garment no modify, to avoid the customers changing the color themselves… how mean… Serious designers like Shai embed the color in their texture after a real work of colorist… This is obviously not the same amount of work.

The trench coats come in 4 colors (black, brown, red and green), each with a different sort of leather. They are made in three components, jacket layer, flexi prim tail and belt attachment, and fur collar flexi prim attachment. Each pack includes a shirt with tie (colored to create a harmony with the trenchcoat) and a pair of black dress pants.

The attachments, pants and shirt are moddable. Perms are copy-no transfer. Each trench coat (with complementary shirt and pants) is sold for 700 Lindens.

Nouveau chez / New at: “Cattivo” by Lissa Maertens

Lissa Maertens for “Cattivo” offers us her new “The Englishman” suit. This very good obsidian suit comes with a full collection of elements.

Jackets first, you will find 4 of them in the pack, open and closed, with or without skirt component for the lower part: this way, everyone should find a jacket to suit his needs and his avatar shape.

[My advice about skirt complement is, for a better fitting, to set your butt around 20-30 . I've said a few days ago that you should have a copy of your shape with the feet set to zero to fit the shoes, maybe you could consider having another one with feet to zero AND butt to 25 to fit the suits with skirt layer for the bottom part of the jacket! :-) One more reason, if needed, to never buy a shape from a shape-maker not customer-conscious enough to sell (often at high prices) no modify shapes.]

Pants: two pairs, one to use as is, another one to use with prim legs for a perfect finish. If you feel uncomfortable with prim attachments, use the regular pair! Thank you, Lissa, for giving us the choice!

Vests: one model in two different length, and a bonus one including a poofer for the sleeves of the jacket you wear over it!

Shirts. I should say orgy of shirts! Eleven shirts with different ties, plus open collar with and without ascot, and closed collar with and without ascot. Not to mention the version to wear with the prim collar that comes in the pack! It’s not over! You also have 4 shirts on the undershirt layer to wear under the vest, buttoned or not, with and without ascot. Well, 21 shirts! I never saw such generosity.

“The Englishman” is absolutely versatile. Wearing it, you could have a modern, classic look, and, using the vest, a retro, more formal look as well. Without the vest and with the ascot, it could even give a casual chic flair.

All the items are modify, no copy, transfer, and the prim attachments are modify, copy, transfer, so you can mess with them as much as you want after a security backup! All is modify means you can be sure you will be able to make your pants fit any shoes you could want, adjust the optional skirt layer of the jacket perfectly, and set the shirt and jacket sliders to be sure the jackets won’t have ugly and unnatural tight sleeves! :)

The items are nicely designed, with the handdrawn flair I’m more and more attracted by. With this suit, it’s now obvious that Lissa Maertens is not a beginning designer anymore. Her very first items could have some flaws, like all the first items of the big names, believe me, but she evolved a lot.
Certain things remain the same with Lissa, though: she offers a very warm and caring customer service, she is humble enough to take critiques to become better, and down to earth to offer very attractive prices. Yes, all these components are sold for an incredibly low 450 Lindens!

With that “Englishman” suit, Lissa reached the next level. She is a hard worker and i’m sure I will be impressed as well with her next release.

“Chez” (Chez Nabob) is back in world!

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Official, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Chez Nabob is back in world! A lot of his fans who were desperate after not finding any of his shops anymore will be thrilled!

What I show you today are not new pieces, but very good classics. You can tailor the striped suits to match your needs. You choose your suit, you choose your shirts and your ties, all come on different layers: jacket on the jacket layer, shirt on the undershirt layer, and tie on the shirt layer. With 9 shirts and 10 ties, you are sure to never look like your neighbour! The shirts come in two versions, opened and closed, to wear with a tie.

I wish Chez Nabob offered us two versions for each tie, one including a sleeve poofer when worn with a jacket, to avoid the, in my humble opinion, hideous tight jacket sleeves. I know, I’m just an insatiable freak! :-D

Chez will soon introduce new items in his collection. You will certainly see them on slmen.com!

To go along with the suits, I chose dress shoes from Savvy Avvy and the excellent “Grownout” hair from Mystikal Hair design.
