Pale Janus, the designer behind “Pale Heretic,” is a man of many surprises. After having brought the spirit of bespoke in SL with his limited — and quite expensive — suits, he comes back on the scene with a couple of super affordable suits: “Core suit” (sold for 80 Lindens with 5 different shirts), and “Twisted Suit” (sold for 240 Lindens with 3 jacket versions, 3 pants versions, 6 shirts, gloves, 4 tattoos…) soon on slmen. Exclusivity amateurs, don’t worry, Pale will offer you soon new limited series of suits! Limited or unlimited series offer the same level of quality: the best. Just on one hand everyone can have a suit, with a low price and unlimited amount of copies sold, and on the other hand only a few will buy a limited very short series, at high prices, but for a real exclusivity and not, as some do — too many these days it seems — just selling at stratospheric prices items with unlimited amount of copies.
Lets talk about this “Core Suit”: in the pack, you will get a pair of pants on the pants layer, a jacket on the jacket layer, and 5 different shirt and tie combos on the shirt layer. Four shirts are dark grey, one with a nice embroidery on it (it shows only when you wear it without the jacket), with different green ties, one is green with a black tie. Everything is nicely textured, with an attention to details which is Pale Heretic mark of fabric. No prim attachment here, but shadowing and highlighting are so good you really don’t need any. Shirts are preset with some volume to the sleeves, so when you wear the jacket with them, no ugly tight sleeve look. You may want to tweak the setting to suit your taste, which is totally possible as everything is moddable (and copy-no transfer). Useless to tell you to run to take your copy of this very good suit at an incredible price!
Quality: 4.5/5 - 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…): 4/5 - Price: 5/5 - Value for money: 5/5
Also showing: a nice new hair from Exile, “Avant Garde,” in the beautiful texture “Mink,” a preview of the new skin from Minnu Model Skin “Beijing” in “Sunkissed” tone in a nice chin beard version — Soon an indepth review on slmen —, the always perfect “Dublin” boots from “JCS” in this “Sage” color which matches perfectly the green on the “Core Suit,” and a superb platinum ring from “Guillaume pour homme.” Enjoy!
