Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” by Shai Delacroix: Alfonso Three Piece Suit

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit | Friday, November 30th, 2007

“Alfonso Three Piece Suit. A gentleman’s soul and life. Never complete without distinct finery and an obssesion for details. The gentleman puts each piece of clothing on carefully before he goes out for the night. Each comes with a Jacket, Waistcoat, Shirt with Handpainted tie, A pair of dress pants. You can wear em in all the ways you can possibly think of. To complete the outfit, each pack comes with the Gentleman’s Fob Watch in Antique Gold with moving hands, scripted to synchronize with SL time. Also sold separately.”designer Shai Delacroix said to introduce her last suit.

Indeed, this suit is yet another great addition to men’s dressing. It comes in 4 colors (shown), and many options are available (shown as well). This hand drawn work is a pleasure for those who are, like me, in need of a change after a lot of photosourced items. The colors are subtle and original as usual at Casa Del Shai. The suit looks “worn,” like your favorite suit, comfortable and familiar, elegant in each and every occasion.

“Alfonso” is sold for 800 lindens. You can get all the colors in a fat pack for 3000 Lindens, which is not really a bargain! A little effort on the fat pack, Madame Delacroix? :-)

I chose a hair from Philotic Energy, in “kohl,” one of Aemilia Case’s five new colors. “Kohl” is almost black with very natural reflections. You can now choose between 21 colors (plus 6 tipped) and the good news is that the fat pack is still at 1200 Lindens! “Hunter” is maybe my favorite haircut in the interesting collection for men at Philotic Energy.

New seasonal release at Jewelry Mhaijik Things by Mhaijik Guillaume. The Christmas ring come in two colors, red and green obviously. They are nicely crafted and you can get them for 250 Lindens each until New Year’s Day only.

Antonia Marat For ArtillerI offers us new items! Cargo pants first. This is good, because there are not so many of them in SL (for some reason we can find jeans absolutely everywhere, but the other kind of men’s pants are a pain to find!). These come in 5 colors (Gray, Black, Khaki, Army, Navy), are high waist so any shirt on the shirt layer will fit, and are sold for 120 Lindens for each color.

We can get a new jacket too! Two kinds are available — denim jackets, in dark blue and black (150 Lindens each, come with white tank top), and Lumberjack jacket with sherpa collar. These come in two versions, jacket layer to wear with prim collar, or jacket layer including collar on the texture. They come also with a white tank top and are sold for 160 Lindens each. All are moddable and copy-no transfer, according to the new policy at Artilleri.

NOTE: There is a sale right now and for two days at Artilleri!
(Artilleri Mainstore, artilleri (93, 123, 26))
Antonia offers 50% off on her clothing! This is the perfect occasion to get some extra Artileri’s stuff. This sale is for celebrating the second birthday of Artilleri. You can read the history of Artilleri on Antonia’s blog. Enjoy the sale!

I show you today a new hair from a young designer. Tag Mulligan for “Color Me Couture” just released a new hair for men, “Chase.” It comes in 4 colors (shown) and is sold at 99 Lindens per color. Go take a look at the store to see the two other men’s hair Tag offers!

Nouveau chez / New at “Casa Del Shai” (Shai Delacroix) & “SF Designs” (Swaffette Firefly)

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

“Carlitos is an inspired piece of woolen threads. A long thick grey cardigan to warm you through the crisp breeze. Comes in a Jacket Layer with a prim flexi coat tail, the cardigan is a study in layering with a mottled grey mock turtleneck shirt and topped with a woolen flexi scarf.” designer Shai Delacroix for Casa del Shai said.
This is a beautiful way to face the cold!
I chose Shai’s one of the Fall Classic Denim to go along with that cardigan, and serious boots from Zero Number by Mai Runo.
The beanie from SF Designs (Swaffette Firefly) is scriptable, you can modify by menu the hair color!
I chose it in black, many colors are available. 100 Lindens each, it’s a gift!

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: Winter Showing

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Monday, November 26th, 2007

The snow has already started to fly up north, so I’ve dragged out the cold-weather gear on SL as well as in real life. Early on, I purchased this set of men’s pea coats at Back and Forth, so reasonably priced at 300L for six colors. The scarf, from Gritty Kitty, has several different patterns to choose from including the fishbone (shown) as well as a red star, rat, skull, and several others.

I love these cords from Kitridge De Santis. I’m wearing the black ones, because I wanted to try out the black Oslos by Eponymous Trenchmouth. The fatpack is definitely worth the price, since you get four pair for barely more than the price of two. They’re nice because they have the look of boots without the bother of having to mess around with the pants to make them fit over the tops.

Nouveau chez / New at “Cattivo” (Lissa Maertens) & “Guillaume pour Homme (Mhaijik Guillaume)

Ben Vanguard | Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Semi-Casual | Sunday, November 25th, 2007

Introducing today a new mega pack from Cattivo by Lissa Maertens: “the constructivist.”

“I call it the Constructivist because it just has the post-czar soviet socialist feel to it. There are three basic versions of it.
The Constructivist has a closed jacket and is clean, minimal shading and it goes with nice non-stressed black or blue jeans and a nice neat no collar shirt buttoned to the neck.
The De-Constructivist is the open jacket version. It has a tucked in shirt that goes with it (can either be buttoned or unbuttoned) more shading on the jacket and the jeans are blue or black but a bit more “stressed” and worn.
The Destructivisit is an open jacket that is well stressed, deeply shaded and had a lot of “grunge” on it. It comes with an untucked shirt and open collar. You can wear the shirt without the jacket or with the jacket (I had to create a jacket layer with both untucked shirt and jacket on it). The jeans come in blue or black are slightly bulkier, have a lot more “stress” in them and have some nice yucky grunge. I decided not to rip them because I already offer ripped jeans and just didn’t feel like it.
Best of all… this outfit comes with all three “states” of wear. As an added bonus, I made my first pair of prim shoes. Now, don’t be too tough on the shoes… I honestly just wanted to mess around with them and see what I could do.”
Lissa said.

Well, all that for 450 Lindens and you have enough to mix and match for days! My favorite version is the “Destructivist”; I show it on the main composite. The second composite gives you a preview of the many other combinations you can create with this “outfit construction set” so generous with no less than 40 components in the pack, not to mention the free bonus shoes! :-) You will get: 6 pairs of pants with prim cuffs (not shown), 3 jackets with prim cuffs, 3 combo jacket/untucked shirts, an unbuttoned shirt in tucked and untucked version in three colors plus one tintable, a buttoned tucked shirt in three colors plus one tintable, bonus free shoes prototype (not shown).

To go along with these outfits, I found that the brand new “Jake Skin” from Posy Trudeau for Flesh Peddlers would be great with its many versions, and the various hairs from Philotic Energy (Aemilia case). The very good boots by Mai Runo for Zero Number match perfectly with these outfits.

Also introducing the new ring collection from Mhaijik Guillaume “chain of love,” particularly original.
