Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day

Nuno McCullough | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Monday, March 10th, 2008

Today, pants are super low rise jeans By Muism. They have been introduced previously with straight leg option, this one is the rolled-up version with adjustable prim cuffs, with a shirt from Truth, “Grandpa Shirt”. Boots are the very realistic Patagonia from Hoorenbeek. They give you a very sleek comfortable walk on every terrain of SL.
I’m also wearing a necklace and a bracelet are By Aitui: Thatch Bracelet, costing a mere $60L and Tapa Necklace for only $150 L.

Just a few words about the hair… The ‘PE Aeron’ By Philotic, a brand that gives you great flex hairs for low prices! For only $150L each color there is no reason for going out with your bare skull!

I’ve seen and worn other beanies with hair on SL, but this is my favorite by far. I like the wispiness of the hair and the texture of the cap is perfect. I love the little Argrace tag! You can get the hair in different colors, as well as short and medium lengths (I’m showing medium length hair in black here). You change the color of the cap by clicking it and choosing your color from the menu that appears.

Here’s the lighter version of the tweed coat from Unknown I showed a month or so ago. Worn with the wine shirt underneath. Also from Unknown, the side line pants, dark with the dark stripe. Finishing off the outfit, the new Dublin shoes from JCS, in black.

There has been yet another amazing release at JCS. Finally, the time is past when we didn’t have much choice in men’s shoes! These “Dublin” shoes are perfectly built and textured, as usual. No sculpty, but classic prims, precisely adjusted. No big balls at your feet for minutes during the laggy days like with the complex sculpty shoes!

You can choose between 6 versions/colors. Slmen’s favorites are Sage, a subtle green in leather and canvas, Crimson, deep dark red with a velvety finish and, last but not least, Black Cherry, made in printed leather, white flowers on a black background, a special request I made ages ago :-D Thank you so much Eponymous Trenchmouth! Also available are brown, black and snake-skin (all shown below). Each pair comes in two sizes, with the option of a “power walk” included. Dublin are no modify, and copy-no transfer or no copy-transfer, according to your needs.
Get your favorite pair for 400 Lindens, or take an everything pack with a 50% off discount. Who could resist? ;-)

Nuno McCullough | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Dressy | Monday, March 3rd, 2008

I’m wearing today a new release from Argrace: Leather Jacket Casual. It shows a good photo sourced texture that gives us the feeling of wearing RL leather. Leather Jacket Casual provides four different options: jacket alone, with blue tee-shirt, with checkered shirt and with open dark shirt; this last option should be done with a different color since we can hardly see the chosen one. This pack is good quality stuff, I wish a bit more of work on the collar, though! 300 Lindens, Moddable and Transferable.

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

This new down jacket from Argrace is a good example of photosourced clothing on SL. Sometimes the realism of photosourced clothing against the never as realistic avatar is a little jarring to me. Still, this jacket is well done, with good colors. I show all the color choices here except the Cloudy Gray (which looks like silver lame to me).
Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 2/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 2.5/5

Also new from Argrace is this “casket” — a knit cap with hair of which the cap is scripted to change color. (You know, I googled ‘casket’ for a definition and images, and could find nothing related to a cap. But…Argrace calls it a casket, so I’ll call it that, too.) You can change the cap color by clicking and holding for a moment or two (not really clear…Ben had to explain it to me). I do like this cap a lot, as well as the hair. I give it a 5 out of 5 for style and originality because I really haven’t seen anything like it on SL before.
Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): NA - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

I rounded out this outfit with the scripted changeable multi-scarf from FNKY!, Hoorenbeek’s All Stars, a pair of black jeans I’d picked up at Argrace this past Christmas, and a selection of jewelry from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Oh! A quick word about the pack of Bright Eyes at Flesh Peddlers. An amazing value, for 75 Lindens, you can choose from 28 colors of eyes, three sizes are provided in each color pack. Shown here in taffy.

Nouveau chez / New at “Hoorenbeek”, “PXL” & “Sysy’s”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, March 1st, 2008

Sometimes, you see a piece of clothing and you just FEEL it’s been made especially for you. Well, I felt precisely that when Sysy Chapman (S.Y.D.) showed me these Bitchex T-Shirts! Cheap and fun, who can resist? They come in two packs, warm color (Black shown in the main composite) and bright colors (shown below). For each color you will get every possible layer for a top: jacket, shirt, undershirt, and the precious complement on the underpants layer. Each pack is priced at 125 Lindens; you can get both for 200 Lindens.

Also in this post: sneak preview of the new version 6 of Adam, a very good Skin from PXL Creation (in-depth post to come very soon), new hiking sculpty boots from Hoorenbeek (more to come too!), sunglasses to the stars from FNKY!, pants from Relax, hair by Truth, and another ring of the last “Mesmerizing mystical hypnotic” collection from Mhaijik Guillaume. Enjoy!
