Nouveau chez / New at “Diversity Hair” (Aleri Darkes) & “Sysy’s” (Sysy Chapman)

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Night, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, December 1st, 2007

Sysy Chapman has been designing men’s basics for a few weeks. Yay! One more clothing designer for men! For now, Sysy offers just a few items, but she will create more men’s stuff on a regular basis. The best part is, they are sold at very sweet prices! I show you today Male Dragon, a nicely done outfit including a pair of leather pants and a black tee shirt with a colored (and absolutely not loud) dragon drawn on it. The tee shirt comes in 4 colors (shown), and on every layer you can imagine for a top!
All is moddable, copy-no transfer. You can pick your favorite color for 125 Lindens (Pants and Tee Shirt) or get them all for 250 Lindens (Pants included).

Aleri Darkes (Diversity Hair) is changing everything: new sim (bye laggy Dacham!), and new textures for the hair. Well, the change is worth it. The new textures are deeper and way more natural, with a special mention for the ashed and light tones I appreciate particularly. The hair is being updated little by little, 4 men’s hair are already available in the new color palette. Aleri is busy as hell retexturing and reboxing everything, but she found time to release a new exploding cut: Nigel. I show it today in the vibrant “Cherry” tone. Remember you can get a free hair at Diversity hair, in a fatpack of every color, for just one Linden. There is no better way to take a closer look at the new textures!

Promotion chez / Sale at: “Diversity Hair”, Nouveau chez / New at “Stellar Designs”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Night | Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

• Introducing today two new creations of my Queen of Sexiness, aka Lexi Morgan, for Stellar Designs! As usual, Lexi offers us basics, but nicely designed and textured ones, with as usual a little something that make them look attractive…

The turtleneck sweaters come in 6 colors (Red, White, Brown, Dark Gray, Green (shown) and blue (not shown). Sculpties prim attachment collar and cuffs are provided for a perfect finish. The colors are subdued but bright, the shadowing reach Lexis’s goal: make your avatar express all its sex appeal! :-) You can have them for 125 Lindens for a color, and 600 Lindens for a fat pack of 6 colors.

The tattoo’d jeans come in 5 wash (all shown below), three blue and two black ones. The added tattoos make them surprisingly hot. Well, the talent Lexi has to put the highlights in the right spot as well! :-D Another trick of Lexi is to transform a pure basic into an object of seduction! You can have your favorite pairs for 130 Lindens or have them all for 500 Lindens.

The jeans are modify, of course, so I could fit perfectly the indispensable Flare Oxford from Shiny Things. This is probably the model of shoes I’d pick if I had to choose only one (OMG, such a horrible thought!)

Diversity Hair is having a “Natural pack” sale! All Men’s and Women’s Natural Packs of hair have been slashed by 50% (150Lindens instead of 300) until October 31st midnight, so hurry up! This is an occasion to try new hair tones, gentlemen! Follow this link to take a look at the styles by Aleri Darkes we have shown on slmen.com.

I’m wearing today “Alec” in five of six colors available in the promo-pack (”Eclipse,” “Hot Chocolate,” “Seaside Sand,” “Java,” “Cranberry,” and, not shown: “Honey Suckle,” a golden light blond.)

Nouvelles chemises chez / New shirts at: “Robin (Sojourner) Wood”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit | Monday, September 24th, 2007

On slmen today: new shirts from Robin Sojourner!

Every designer in SL knows Robin for her templates for clothes and her precious tutorials.
She knows like noone else how to design clothes with no more seams than the ones you can have on RL! Her textures are perfectly baked on the avatar mesh, thanks to her knowledge of 3D software. The complex prints on the shirts I show you today look incredibly “real.”

You will find many models in Robin’s shop. Each comes on many layers in many versions: low and long, each open or closed, untucked on the jacket layer, tucked on the shirt and undershirt layer.

You can choose all your favorites for an incredibly low 50 Lindens per shirt. For such quality, it’s a gift!

Nouveau chez / New at: “Casa Del Shai”, “Diversity Hair” & “Jeepers Creepers”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Official, Semi-Casual | Monday, September 3rd, 2007

• Introducing the last outfit from one of the best stylists in SL: Greek Boy Outfit by Shai Delacroix for Casa Del Shai. Shai offers us each time something we’ve never seen in sl, and it’s such a pleasure! Each outfit comes with sculpted prim attachments for the legs and a badge (not shown). I swear I have nothing against prim legs, just i’m not into slouchy pants, at least for this kind of outfit. :-) Exquisite sensation when wearing this outfit, comfortable and original, not mentioning how funny it is to mix and match the different colors. I do love it!

• Another new hair from Aleri Darkes for Diversity Hair (see previous posts). I told you, Aleri thinks of men, which is good! Jude has a classic touch and at the same time looks a bit crazy. I couldn’t imagine a better choice to fit shai’s new creation. Thank you Aleri!

• Another valuable introduction, the new “Scratch” shoes from Eponymous Trenchmouth for Jeepers Creepers. Epy has reached such a level in the art of texturing now that her creations are simply a must have. They fit perfectly, they look Old School with something definitely modern. And you know what? Epy promised me tons of colors, some, including black and sand, in progress! :-D

Nouveau chez / New at: “Aitui” (Jesseaitui Petion)

• Introducing the first Suit for men by Jesseaitui Petion for Aitui. I would call it a “casual suit”: casual fit, wrinkles, original buttoning; this suit shows nice textures and allows 3 ways of wearing. It is priced at 500 Lindens. You can have a set of 4 tees, wearable under the jacket only, for 100 Lindens.

I used a different sleeve filler than the one provided in the pack when worn with a shirt, for a slightly better finish. For the same reason, I added the amazing Bare Hand Gloves by Robin Sojourner.

• One more hair at Diversity Hair (Aleri Dark), YAY!!! Not less than 6 new men’s hair released by Aleri in less than two weeks. This is the third I show you today. “Chad” is very easygoing and cool, with a very natural very flexi effect (I love flexi!).

One of these 6 hair, “Rough” is offered as a gift at the shop! For one linden you will have all the colors of Aleri’s palette for men! Such a gift! :-)

Nouveau chez / New release at: “Diversity Hair” & “SF Design” (part II)

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Sunday, August 26th, 2007

Showing today another new very good men’s hair by Aleri Darkes for Diversity Hair. Medium length and slightly messy, it will please the ones who want to have a casual look without being grungy!

The pack of 6 natural colors is sold for 300 Lindens, other packs of 4 close colors and/or tipped versions are sold for 175 Lindens, and you can get the “mega pack” of 65 colors for a low 1000 Lindens.

New sleeveless plaid shirts from Swaffette Firefly for SF Design. Three colors in two versions for these sexy shirts: with prim collar or classic one. Well, I’m not convinced with prim collars. This one is maybe easier to fit than some others, probably because it’s in three parts. It has been a tedious work though, and I’m not sure it is worth it. Swaffette offers us a classic version of her shirts anyway, so you can look sexy without working hard, wow, I like it! :-)

“Sleeveless plaid shirts” come in shirt (tucked) and jacket (untucked) layers for each version, for 100 Lindens per color (you can see all the offered colors at the end of this post).

You can have the new “Tricolor” version of the “flag” boots from SF Design, this one showing the French Republic flag, for 200 Lindens.
