*Addenda*
Following the review we did on the new Athlete Sneakers from Redgrave (read below the cut), Viola Leigh, the designer, decided to make several improvements to her great latest creation: A resize script will be added in the shoes for an easier fitting, the basic size will be smaller, fitting most common avatar size, and last but not least, a version without the upper laces will be added in the pack, to allow a better look when the sneakers are worn with long untucked pants. Residents who already bought the “Athlete Sneakers” can ask Viola Leigh the new version. Just send her a notecard showing your transaction history for the original purchase, title it like that: “Athlete Sneakers update - Your_Name” . Thank you so much Viola for being so customer conscious! :-)

Tenue de Rentrée / Back to School Outfit: “Argrace”, “Elite Prim Watch”, “Sweetest Goodbye”…

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Monday, September 8th, 2008

Morphine Janick has created a short and original collection for men under her brand “Sweetest Goodbye.”
I’m showing today her “School Boy” outfit. It comes in 8 colors (3 shown below); each color pack contains the following items, all modify and copy-no transfer: pants on the pants layer, a sweater/shirt combo on the shirt layer, sculpted pants’ cuffs, sculpted shirt’s cuffs, sculpted collar and tie combo and, last but not least, a lower sculpted attachment for the shirt and the sweater. This piece gives a loose look to the sweater, something you absolutely can’t get in sl according to the clothing layers limitations. After a few adjustments, the lower attachment looked the way it was designed to, loosened and distressed sweater and shirt, without looking ugly during the walk and standard AO poses, as so many prim clothes do.
I just wish the combo sweater/shirt were fully drawn on the jacket layer, for a more “sl classic look” for those times when you want to lower your Avatar Rendering Cost or simply to get an alternative look. I wish also a bit more work on the textures, especially on the pants which show the “jagged bottom bug” when you choose to wear them without the cuffs. This bug is so easy to avoid following this simple hint.
Though, I’m happy to see prim clothing looking good even when your avatar moves around!

Quality: 3/5 - Style-Originality: 4.5/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 3/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 3/5

Wearing “Sweetest Goodbye” School Boy - Indigo+Red

Domch Raymaker introduced the work of Gospel Voom for “Angel & Gos Watches and Builds.” He creates incredibly detailed watches which actually work! I chose for today a simple model, “Leather Navimeter.” The leather belt is color changing by script (chat commands) and offers 6 possibilities. The watches are moddable to fit your avatar and transfer for easy gifting. Indulge yourself with a nicely crafted accessory. Just the opposite of bling. Something simply chic.

Quality: 5/5 - Style-Originality: 4/5 - Usability (different layers for each item, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 4/5

Also showing a cap and hair combo from “Argrace,” “Neo” skin from “Damiani,” and “Chucks” sneakers by “Akeyo.” Enjoy!
