Nouveau chez / New at “Color Me Couture” & “JCS”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Night, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Introducing today the brand new “Shanghai” shoes from JCS. They are another great artwork by Eponymous Trenchmouth. Look at the details of the texture. No other shoes in sl are so well finished, even inside and on the sole! For a man of taste, what is invisible is as important as what is visible. The build work is as achieved as the texture work with, as usual now at JCS, different builds for the left and right shoe.

These Shanghai offer a precious look, inspired from Asia. The first idea is to find rich and sophisticated clothes to fit them, brocard and stuff. But I think too much sophistication kills sophistication, especially in men’s style. These shoes have to be the master piece of the outfit. So I looked for quality basics composing a blue palette (Aitui Slacks, Moderno sweater, Eye Candy Designs Ring), and added a rough necklace from Goth1c0 as a dash of spice in the cocktail! I hope you’ll enjoy this outfit of the day as much as I do!

“Shanghai” shoes come in copy-non transfer or no copy-transfer according to your preferences. They are no modify as usual at JCS, but they are sold with two sizes in the package. Black-Red, Black-Blue, Black-Steel and Gray-Silver are the available colors (shown). New colors are about to be released: Brown-gold (shown) and black gold (not shown). You can have each color for 400 Lindens, and bargain packs will be available offering the 6 colors for a very nice price!

Also new, “Ethan” by Tag Mulligan for Color Me Couture (CMC). It comes in 5 colors for a low 99 Lindens each. It finishes the look of the day with a bit of an attitude! We’ll have to keep track of hair from this young designer!

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day : “Adam n Eve”, “Color Me Couture”, “Hoorenbeek”, “Mhaijik Things”.

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Official, Semi-Casual | Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

Introducing today some items from “Hoorenbeek.” This brand has recently started to offer quality stuff which might interest you!
Today I’m showing “Suede jackets” and “Davit boots,” with complementary pants.

“Suede Jacket” comes in 4 colors (shown); in each pack you will find 4 different jacket layers: one combo with a sweater and a shirt underneath, showing a bit of the belt part of the layer; one without to allow you to wear it with the shirt or sweater of your choice on the shirt layer; and for each of them you will get two versions: one stand alone, one to wear with a complementary skirt. I’m not usually fond of the skirt layer to finish jackets, but this one fits well with minor adjustment (you will obtain a better look modifying your shape a bit, simply reducing the butt size under 35; there are other ways, but a bit more complicated). You can choose to wear the jacket made for the skirt layer complement alone, for a slightly different look with a shorter jacket. Two cuff prim attachments are included to finish the jacket.

The texture is nicely done, detailed without being obviously photosourced. Everything is moddable and copy-no transfer.

“Davit boots” show an original form. Their textures are detailed and show nice selvedges and elasticed sides. The leather texture is realistic. They come in three colors (shown). They are not moddable but come in three sizes for a perfect fitting to the proportions of your avatar. Copy-no transfer.

You can have no copy-transfer version of these items for easy gifting. The vendors offer the alternative. Note that Hoorenbeek is currently running a sale for the holidays, with around 20% off of selected items. Tomorrow, Saturday December 22nd, is the last day!

Another reminder for Mhaijik Guillaume’s limited Christmas rings: After the first of January, they won’t be for sale anymore!

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Friday, December 21st, 2007

Well, I swear it’s not an obsession, I’m showing today some more Japanese creations!
AIR Winx for “Argrace” offers us these brand new interesting hoodies plus complementary down jacket in two packs, “Black” and “Gray&White”, each including a tucked (shirt layer and underpants layer) and untucked version (jacket layer) of the hoodie, two presized hoods, and two versions of the down jacket on the jacket layer, alone and including the hoodie under it.
Everything is moddable and no copy-transfer. You will see on the second composite the many possibilities you have with each pack.
The jeans shown are a freebie you can get in the shop, with a cap and a sweater!
Soon more stuff from this promising designer!

To go along with this hoodie and jacket, I chose the very good “Akeyo” Sneakers from Arto Magneto and Akemi Yoshikawa, in their colored version this time, and some cool hair from Tag Mulligan for “Color Me Couture.” Enjoy!

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

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!
