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

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Friday, September 26th, 2008

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!

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 3/5 - Price:2/5 - Value for money: 3/5

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!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the day: “Amodica”, “Philotic Energy”, “Simone!”…

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Dressy, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

I’m introducing today the first dress shoes for men created under the brand “Simone!” by Lissa Maertens. For a first try, they are simply great. The textures are nice; the seams between the prims are pretty good. They offer a classic but original style.

They are offered in three colors (brown, black and the “Cordovan” shown below). They are copy no transfer and resizable by menu.

I have to mention their totally more-than-fair price: 200 Lindens per color. Demos are available for one Linden, so they’re worth a try!

You will find them in the main space at “Simone!” — the one where you land, not in the men’s section. (I wish this shop were easier to browse, I swear! It may be me, but it takes me forever each time I try to find something at “Simone!” - Lissa, Simone, do something!)

For my outfit, I used the many times updated “Form” suit series by Adam Soler for “Lookr.”

All the separates offer many options:

Blazers come on every possible layer: jacket, shirt, undershirt, plus complement on the underpants layer. Three colors are available.

Trousers come on pants and underpants layers, plus two pairs of pre-sized and moddable cuffs: standard and flared. Three colors available.

Shirts some in closed version, open versions in three sub-versions: to wear with or without prim collar, plus a rolled sleeve version, each on jacket, shirt, undershirt layer, plus a complement on the underpants layer. You will get in the pack as well a pair of cuffs, and two prim collars, for closed and open shirt version! 4 colors are available.

Everything is moddable and copy-no transfer. Many add-ons are available to complete “Form”: ties and alternative shirts’ cuffs… Probably one of the most versatile outfits available. I like this series a lot, as it’s really different from what you can get everywhere, and it’s a pure creation, without any RL “close inspiration” as we can see too often on the grid now.

Plus a cool hair by Aemilia Case for “Philotic Energy,” the new “Damiani” blonde skin “Angel” you will soon discover in a dedicated post (as soon as possible, I promise!) and not so new but still interesting jewelry with animated textures from “Guillaume pour Homme.”

Enjoy!

Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Akeyo”, “Detour”, “Moderno”, “Mustang Trading Post”,”Studio Sidhe”, & “Style Starts Here”,

I put together this outfit around a few accessories I’ve wanted to show you for a little while, and some newer ones.

Artoo Magneto, the designer behind Akeyo, is a sculpty master! His caps are nicely done and offer a wide choice of patterns. I’m showing one of the last patterns, “Buzz.” Caps are Copy no mod, but they are resizable by menu. A menu offers the possibility to flip the cap with a single click.

Faery Sola (Studio Sidhe) doesnt release a lot of men’s stuff. It’s always a pleasure to get new items from her; she works hard to offer perfectly built and carefully hand textured items. The new “Quartz Crystal Pendants,” showing nice glowing crystals inserted in stones attached to a leather thong, are perfect to reveal the new age in you ;-) They come in 5 colors for the stone, 120 Lindens each or 300 Lindens for the whole set! They are easily moddable to fit your avatar and offered in two pre-sized versions.

Mustang Trading Post (run by Jon Ree) is an original store with a western flair, offering some pieces of furniture and accessories: jewelry, spurs and belt buckles, among others. I’m showing today a cool leather bracelet adorned with turquoise and silver rings. It’s no copy, modify to fit and sells for 250 Lindens.

Released a few month ago, but for the first time on slmen (such a shame, I know! :-)), these sneakers by Detour (by Detour Sideways) are just perfect. Their original cut and pattern is a great alternative to the tons of “converse like” sneakers we can see everywhere on the grid (don’t get me wrong, I love them, but hey, we need more diversity!). These shoes come in 5 colors (350 Lindens each) or in a fat pack of 6 colors (with an exclusive one) for 1000 Lindens. Fat pack isn’t the right expression, as you will get only a pair of shoes (in three presized versions) with an “on touch” color changer: a simple click on each shoe switches from one color to another. Nice way to avoid overfilled inventories!

Completing the outfit with a perfectly finished T-Shirt combo from Moderno (Starley Thereian), a nice pair of cargos from Style Starts Here (Simone Stern), each sold for 100 Lindens (it’s a challenge nowadays to find such high quality stuff at these prices…).
