Guest’s Outfit of the day

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Official, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, September 8th, 2007

I like the classic lines of this Redgrave suit; it reminds me of the 1950’s Ratpack era and occasionally retro-chic is essential. Wearing the suit with an open collar shirt rather than the tie reduces the formality whilst still retaining an air of sophistication. The suit is packed with many variations enabling mixing and matching with other items of clothing, an essential in my book.

The FNKY shoes are amongst the best in SL; they come in a wide range of sizes to fit all feet. This is necesary to prevent seams of flesh seeping out of shoes that are too small. All shoes should either be modified or come in a range of sizes if they are to fit correctly; sadly, there are many that don’t. I opted for the buckle style as I felt it gave the shoes a more contemporary feel and further reduced the formality of the suit.

I was looking for classic elegance within a relaxed style; I think the clothes provide it.

Body Positive - Nouveau chez / New release at: “Minnu Model Skins”

Ben Vanguard | - Body Positive (Skins+Shapes), - Tenue/Outfit | Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

With this great new addition to men’s skin choice, we can’t hardly complain that we are all forced to wear the same skin to have a quality one! :-D

Minnu Palen and her sister Thora Charron have done a great job. These skins are superb. The skin tones are very different from one another, so it should be easy to choose one that suits you! For now, they offer 4 facial hair and make-up options (see the last composite), and 2 body hair choices (see below), including a smooth and very appealing chest hair.

Each single skin is 1,500 Lindens, and you can get a pack of 4 facial hair option, one body hair option for 5,000 Lindens.

Nouveau chez / New release at: “Cake” and “Tonic”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

• New “Rumor” hair by Stumbelina Ophelia, with a brand new texture palette. “Rumor” is really versatile and can suit a lot of occasions and outfits: easy going, stylish without excess, just a bit messy: you will love it! Get your favorite colors for 300 Lindens each, or grab the fat pack of 23 colors for 3500 Lindens.

• Static Schultz offers his first creations: elegant Vans-style Slip-Ons. I always found those shoes sexy irl, and terribly chunky and dull in sl, until these! They come in 16 different designs for 250 Lindens a pair or 3500 Lindens for the whole package (This package is not the bargain of the century, for sure!)

• Take a look at the pieces of clothing by Laxx Scarborough I’m showing today: quite comfy, but elegant and discreetly sexy as always at Relax. This is probably the reason why so many men appreciate the brand! 200 Lindens for the “Relax Police Truck - Full SET-UP,” 75 Lindens for the “Relax Boardshorts (Black).”
And you know what, Laxx will change the perms of his pants! It will take a little time, but all the pants will soon be “Modify.” This is so important to be able to modify the length, the cuff flare or the pants fit to match shoes perfectly or simply to tweak one’s general look.

Thank you so much Laxx for understanding your customers’ needs and changing your opinion about this subject which is, as everybody knows, very important to me! So, I will soon show you more stuff from Relax :-)

• You can see today the gold pieces of the “Leezard” series by Mhaijik Guillaume I started to present you yesterday. Nothing to add. I love the leezards, period!
75 Lindens for the ring, 300 Lindens for the necklace which comes with an assorted bracelet.
