Nouveau chez / New at: “Eros Fashions by Keth”

Keth Mommsen takes her time before releasing new stuff! She wants things to be their best. So it’s always a pleasure to try on new stuff from her!

This suave shirt and leather pants are worth the wait. The shirt shows a nice pattern, and it’s fully tintable, so you can modify it to suit your most crazy color needs. For those who are dye allergic, Keth offers a pre-tinted shirt pack. You will have a tucked and untucked version of the shirt (jacket and shirt layer) plus complement on the underpants layer. Pants come with two versions, one with decorated back pocket, and three pre-sized prim cuffs. They are nicely textured, and complete perfectly with sobriety the Suave Shirts! Everything is moddable and transfer. I miss a copy-no trans option, especially considering the tintable feature.

You can get a pack including a shirt in the color of your choice (and tintable), the pants and their accessories for 300 Lindens. Pants alone are sold for 150 lindens. You can choose one of the two packs of 6 pre-tinted shirts for 600 lindens, in two versions: dark and light colors, with each time a white tintable version.

Enjoy!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day : “Hoorenbeek,” “Miau Haus” and “Urban Bomb Unit”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Semi-Casual | Sunday, July 27th, 2008

These blazers from Hoorenbeek remind me of old school uniform blazers, although I occasionally get the urge to gather up a small group of people and take them on a tour. ;)

Coming in 6 colors (all shown here except green), it’s a sharp, albeit slightly undersized blazer (when closed). Comes in open and closed versions, with alpha, shirt, t-shirt and turtleneck. An embroidered crest adorns the pocket, and prim earbuds come with, for both the chest and bottom right pockets (not shown). I like the detail and color choice; nice work as usual from Hoorenbeek.

Again I’m showing the corduroy pants by Posy Trudeau, offered at Miau Haus. Sorry to have shown them in black yet again…I promise another color next time. The Porn Star slip ons are a natural compliment to this outfit, with the texture set to a simple black. Hair is “Wolf” in black from Happy Dispatch, and I’m wearing the bearded Joshua skin from Damiani.

Enjoy!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Aoharu”, “Arai”, “Guillaume pour Homme”, “J’s”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Friday, July 25th, 2008

We’ve already shown Arai’s items a few months ago. Mappy Handrick offers cool items at very low prices. I’m showing today one of the last releases, a madras shirt. It comes in 4 colors (pink shown), on as many layers as possible, is copy, modify and no transfer. 50 Lindens per color.

Machang Pichot of Aoharu designs handdrawn items with cool colors. These pink jeans are smooth and bright at the same time. They’re modify, no transfer, come with 4 pairs of presized sculpted cuffs (male/ female, Skinny/regular). You can chose your favorite colors among a bunch of colors for 180 Lindens each.

I’ve just discovered the sneakers from J’s. These city casual shoes are pretty original and come in 8 colors. Sculpties are definitely excellent when it comes to doing casual shoes. They are copy no modify, offered in 4 sizes. You can get your favorite pair for 300 Lindens, or pick the fat pack which offers 8 pairs for 1200 Lindens, so 50% off!

Mhaijik Guillaume, for Guillaume pour Homme, released a new collection of titanium jewelry. Showing today a bracelet and a ring. As usual, they are transfer for easy gifting, and moddable to fit your avatar. 250 Lindens for a pack of two different rings or two different bracelets. Titanium is great to create very mascuine pieces of jewelry.

Enjoy!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Akeyo”, “Detour”, “Moderno”, “Mustang Trading Post”,”Studio Sidhe”, & “Style Starts Here”,

I put together this outfit around a few accessories I’ve wanted to show you for a little while, and some newer ones.

Artoo Magneto, the designer behind Akeyo, is a sculpty master! His caps are nicely done and offer a wide choice of patterns. I’m showing one of the last patterns, “Buzz.” Caps are Copy no mod, but they are resizable by menu. A menu offers the possibility to flip the cap with a single click.

Faery Sola (Studio Sidhe) doesnt release a lot of men’s stuff. It’s always a pleasure to get new items from her; she works hard to offer perfectly built and carefully hand textured items. The new “Quartz Crystal Pendants,” showing nice glowing crystals inserted in stones attached to a leather thong, are perfect to reveal the new age in you ;-) They come in 5 colors for the stone, 120 Lindens each or 300 Lindens for the whole set! They are easily moddable to fit your avatar and offered in two pre-sized versions.

Mustang Trading Post (run by Jon Ree) is an original store with a western flair, offering some pieces of furniture and accessories: jewelry, spurs and belt buckles, among others. I’m showing today a cool leather bracelet adorned with turquoise and silver rings. It’s no copy, modify to fit and sells for 250 Lindens.

Released a few month ago, but for the first time on slmen (such a shame, I know! :-)), these sneakers by Detour (by Detour Sideways) are just perfect. Their original cut and pattern is a great alternative to the tons of “converse like” sneakers we can see everywhere on the grid (don’t get me wrong, I love them, but hey, we need more diversity!). These shoes come in 5 colors (350 Lindens each) or in a fat pack of 6 colors (with an exclusive one) for 1000 Lindens. Fat pack isn’t the right expression, as you will get only a pair of shoes (in three presized versions) with an “on touch” color changer: a simple click on each shoe switches from one color to another. Nice way to avoid overfilled inventories!

Completing the outfit with a perfectly finished T-Shirt combo from Moderno (Starley Thereian), a nice pair of cargos from Style Starts Here (Simone Stern), each sold for 100 Lindens (it’s a challenge nowadays to find such high quality stuff at these prices…).

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Kalrau”

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Casual | Sunday, July 20th, 2008

Kal Rau has an eye for detail that may be unrivaled in SL. The drawings on these Underground jeans remind me of taking a ballpoint pen to my own jeans, and the carabiner & key (offered in green with the jeans, and as a pack of five additional colors) is really well done! Kalrau is the place I turn to when I want my SL look and style to be closest to my RL one. (Getting out my pen and sharpening that line blurring between reality and….)

The blue jean jacket is quite realistic, and comes with or without the shirt beneath. Also included are sculpty cuffs (worn) and chest pocket flaps (not worn, because the attachment point is the same as the necklace I chose, and I’m not that fond of sculpty stuff most of the time anyway). The pocket flaps aren’t bad, but they don’t seem necessary…the jacket looks fine without them.

Mhaijik Guillaume’s Air Vial Pendant is one of several she offers that are animated (obviously not visible here, but you really have to see it). The air swirls around in a tiny misty cloud inside the glass vial…I love these organic, unique items.

Truth’s “Jared” hair in black, the black leather All-Stars from Hoorenbeek, and a black rubber thumb ring (also from Mhaijik Guillaume) round out this outfit.

Nouveau chez / New at: “Dahlinks”, “Insert Cool Name” & “Tesla”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Night, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Hi there!

Tesla Miles for Tesla makes nicely done sculpty items. I’m showing today her latest creations: “Oracle” sunglasses and urban tactic boots. Both are copy no trans and moddable by menu: size for boots, color and size for the glasses. The shoes are pretty shiny, and even though they are boots and done in one piece, you can fit them easily under pants, which is not so obvious with some others on the market! The flexi laces add a bit of realism. They come in black, red, blue and brown. 399 Lindens a pair and 1000 Lindens for the everything pack! The sunglasses are sold for 499 Lindens. Less expensive versions are available, without the color changing menu.

Malte Antfarm is a young designer in world. He started the brand “Insert cool name” and offers very low priced items. Some of them are really original with cool patterns, like the purple hoodie shown. Some others are classics on the grid, like these seriously ripped dark jeans, but for less money than what you can usually find. At 50 Lindens a piece, hoodie and jeans are worth a look. Everything is moddable, and the hoodie offers a sculpty hood.

Alexandra Nichols for Dahlinks can’t stop doing men’s stuff! I hope she’ll keep up that pace! I’m showing today her last “Power player dress ring.” It comes in three sizes to fit every avatar. Copy, no transfer, 300 Lindens.

Thora Charron creates new skins for Minnu Model Skins. The “zero” range offers seven skin tones, with 5 body hair versions and 12 facial options. Each skin comes with painted hair or bald option, each in eyeliner or without makeup choice. Basically you get 4 skins when buying one. 1700 Lindens for a facialoption in one tone and one body hair option. 2250 for a duopack. The body hair options are interesting, from smooth to frankly hairy on the chest and belly! I hope these options will be kept in the next release. Due to the character of the skin, less photorealistic than the previous skins from MMS, the very hairy options aren’t really fitting, in my humble opinion, but they will ravish the ones who think a man has to have hair!

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day: “Dahlinks”, “JCS”, “Little Heaven”, “Shiki”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Official, Semi-Casual | Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Are you (like me) somewhat tired of “realistic” items, and looking for more genuine creativity? There are some designers to fit your needs, and Shinichi Mathy for Shiki designs is one of them. He offers colored items for guys that make you feel happy!

I’m showing today “Mustard suit.” It comes in two versions (open and closed) for jackets, two versions for pants (brown and black belt) and 3 undershirt colors (Olive -shown- plus Teal and Grey), available in the three layers possible for top items, plus an underpants complement. As the shirt has half sleeves, you can’t use the short layer to give solme volume to the jacket over it, so I chose the undershirt layer and completed it with my personal sleeve filler.
Everything is moddable and copiable. You can have this suit for 450 Lindens!

With the last unisex hair from Little Heaven (Salva), the Eternity Dress Ring from Dahlinks in black diamond and titanium, and Grey Carl Perkins shoes from JCS, I had a lot of fun trying to mimic some well known RL designer ;-) This “face 3 eyeliner” version of the Joshua skin by Damiani helped me a lot!

Enjoy!
