Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Akeyo,” “Kalrau,” and “Style Starts Here”

Okay, we all know there are lots of jeans to be found in Second Life, and it’s easy to argue that no more are needed, but when there’s something unique about a usually common piece of clothing, I think an exception can be made. These jeans from Kalrau are *ahem* very nicely shaded, with a quilted texture at the knees. They come in a belted and unbelted version, with small, medium and large versions of both a closed and open prim belt. I chose open to show here. It was fairly easy to position to look natural, but maybe a prim left and prim right section of the belt would allow for more variation in avatar size. I love this idea, I have to admit. I think it’s fun and, depending on where you are, could be a real conversation starter!

With the black jeans, I chose this 1957 Dublin jacket from Style Starts Here. This shop continues to be a real goldmine for inexpensive, multi-layer clothing, with a great selection of men’s stuff. Worn as the shirt layer with the waistband on the underpants layer, I was able to show off the prim belt. Simone always does a nice job with shading and detail, and there’s so much to choose from at SSH. Take a look and round out your wardrobe with good basics to mix and match.

Rounding out this outfit is the sharp Sun’s Gate watch from Fim Fischer, the recently featured AKIDAZ shoes from Akeyo, and Muse hair in black from Defectiva.

Enjoy!

Nouveau chez / New At: “Redgrave”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual | Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Emilia Redgrave just released a new suit. Well, i should say a full suit pack, as it’s generous in options and layers. The “Suit Elegance” comes with a pair of black pants on the pants layer, a jacket in three versions on the jacket layer: jacket alone, jacket with shirt, jacket with shirt and vest; a vest on the jacket layer in two versions, long and short, and on the shirt layer, a dress shirt on the jacket, shirt and undeshirt layer, plus complement on the underpants layer, a sleeve puffer on the shirt layer (to wear with the jacket over it - no more ugly tight jacket’s sleeves YAY!), and a few attachments: Jacket foulard, Pocketwatch, a pair of cuffs for the jacket, a pair of cuffs for the shirt, two versions of the tie: one to wear with the vest, one to wear with the jacket. Wow!

The textures are sophisticated, especially for the shirt and vest (this vest is simply gorgeous). The black pants lack a bit of highlighting to give them some life under SL light, but at least it avoids the jagged bottom pants bug! I’m showing the cuffs on the composite, but you can choose to wear “Suit Elegance” without them. I particularly like the jacket’s cuffs. I’m less convinced with the shirt’s ones, but, as they’re optional, everyone will follow their own taste!

The watch is nice, works on the jackets or on the vest. The foulard is a cool addition. The ties, done to match both vest or jacket over a shirt is a nice idea, i just wish for a better adjustment to the clothing layer. When you pay 1200 Lindens for a suit, you can be demanding, right? ;-)

Anyway, this suit is a great addition to any wardrobe. When you wear it, the whole ensemble looks really great, and even stunning, and I’m sure it wil be a success. Every piece of the pack is moddable, as every good house does. More rare, “Suit Elegance” is no copy, transfer, so easily giftable! Ladies, think of it if you are fed up with your man wearing skull stained tees! :-)

To go along with this very elegant suit, i chose to show you the new “Elegance Shoes” from Redgrave as well! Sculpty work, nicely textured, very realistic and shiny, they bring to SL something of this Italian style which is sometimes a bit show off, but always irresistible! They come in 6 colors; “Black” was the best choice for this outfit. These very original shoes (speaking of SL of course!) have to be in your inventory, like the “Kalninsshown a while ago. These shoes are moddable, which allows you to tweak their size to fit your avie. After all these scripted shoes, I’ve become lazy and I have to admit manual adjustment of shoes is a bit tedious, especially when you are not used to it, and when it comes to making them both the same size (shrink or stretch them using the “stretch” mode and the white handles, check the size in the “object” tab but just don’t type the number there, you would ruin your shoes (linked objects don’t like direct input of numbers in these boxes). To avoid any issue, better do a backup copy of your original shoes, as they are copy-no transfer! I’m sure you will enjoy them as much as i did.

Also showing sophisticated hair from “Little Heaven,” adding a final touch to my italian look, a nice ring from “Dahlinks” and the “Neo” skin from “Damiani.”
