Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Thursday, January 24th, 2008

What I like most about Posy Trudeau’s new Supertight Tees is the shading and detail on the torso…makes a skinny av like me look like he’s got some muscles without looking like The Incredible Hulk. The graphics (Patriot, RocknRoll, Urban Grunge, Winged Skull, Tunes and Royal Crest) are simple and understated. The colors, unfortunately, are the same. I would like them to be a bit more vivid, I guess. The colors are so similar to one another, I find it a little hard to distinguish one shirt from the next in my memory.

The R&B Check Pants from GRANDMA! are fun and goofy, in a not-so-subdued plaid. The clothes at Grandma’s are cool, I think, and easy to pair with plainer pieces for a great looking ensemble.

Several times in the past few weeks, I’ve IM’d people whose hair I’ve found interesting and come up with the same answer — booN. boo Nakamura’s hairstyles are messy and wild, with a distinctly anime style. You can find booN on the Japanese sim, Osaka.

Rounding out today’s outfit is the Heartbreaker necklace from Goth1co and the black Scratch shoes from JCS.

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!

Nouveau chez / New at “Beef+Cake” & “Shiny Things”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Thursday, October 25th, 2007

Two exciting bits of news today!

First, Fallingwater Cellardoor releases new shoes for men! That is great, because the last release was only a few weeks ago, and we were not used to being spoiled like that at Shiny Things! This new creation is sculpty based, so each shoe is only 17 prims. Sculpties free the creativity of the content creators, but make the texturing way more difficult. The shoes are original and show a bright sheen. Well, they are the exact opposite of “Old Shoes” from the same brand! :-) The triple straps and buckles give them a sporty look, even though they can be used with an official outfit.

They come in 5 colors (shown) and are sold for 325 Lindens per color; each color pack offers 3 sizes and you can get a free demo in the store to be sure they will fit your avatar.

Second, Nessinger Loveless, owner and designer of T..a..R..t., clothing for women, just started a range for men under the name “Beef+Cake”. She offers basics, but very nicely done. Jeans and V-neck sweaters are nicely textured and show a high level of finish. I’ve rarely seen in men’s clothing seams of such quality and such a perfect collar, flawlessly drawn.

The jeans come in 4 color tones (shown) and the sweaters in 7. (5 of them are shown below, you can see a “Gray” and a “Chocolate” in the store as well.)

The sweaters come on the jacket layer with a base on the shirt layer. This base gives some volume to the sleeves. Well, all the faithful readers of SL Men know that I appreciate particularly this kind of attention to details! :-) The garment pieces are set to “Copy-Modify-No transfer,” with the surprising exception of the sweater base which is no modify. It could allow to tweak precisely the length for a perfect finish if it was “modify,” but, hey, you can use another base if you are as obsessed as I am, like the one you can get at SL Men HQ.

The price of these quality basics is more than fair: 100 Lindens for a pair of jeans, 100 Lindens for a sweater and its base. For sure, the arrival of Nessinger on the men’s market will seriously challenge the men’s fashion designers! :-)

I chose one more time a hair from Aitui to go along with this basic outfit, and some jewelry from Goth1c0 and Jewelry Mhaijik things.

Spécial créateur : Robin Sojourner

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

I’m almost ashamed to have waited so long before showing you some of Robin Sojourner’s creations. Skilled, experienced and talented 3D artist, she does the best plaid shirts you can find in SL. Walking in her shop is like walking in a chidren’s book. She represents for me all the best of SL : sharing, poetry and creativity. She brings a lot to the community, including her tutorials and her famous templates for clothes used by so many designers.

I chose to show you today one of her very very good shirts and a pair of her jeans.

The plaid shirts come in many colors, each color costs 100 lindens, and for that price you get 4 untucked versions on the jacket layer (open, close, rolled sleeves or cuffed sleeves), 4 tucked versions (shirt and undershirt layer, rolled and cuffed), nothing less! Just because i’m very fussy, I would say I miss a complement of the tucked version on the underpant layer, to allow low-rise pants.

Textures, shadowing and seams are exceptionally done. Some of the designers new in world, including a so called “guru,” should learn from Robin, instead of being obsessed with their business…

The jeans come in many options and colors, with each single pair a low 50 Lindens. They are not low rise, well tailored, and I advise you to pick at least a pair of these normal-rise, high quality jeans; there are not so many in world!
