Nouveau chez / New at: “Styles of edo”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Formal | Sunday, September 21st, 2008

I’m showing here one of the new tuxedos from Styles of edo. The 2008 Tuxedo2, Coordinated04 comes with a black tuxedo jacket nicely accented in white at the lapel (on the jacket layer), jacket with black vest (also on the jacket layer), black vest on the jacket layer, black pants, and a wing collar white shirt with silver tie. Everything is moddable, copyable, and no transfer, and the set sells for 700 Lindens. edo’s tux sets kind of make my head spin; he puts so many combinations together that I get lost in all the choices. I’ve shown a few combinations of other jackets from two other new tux sets, as well as several options from the wingshirts fat pack, which includes 21 different shirt color/tie type & color combinations for 1600 Lindens, including red, blue, purples, yellows, white shirts combined with bowties, cross ties, and conventional ties of assorted colors. I prefer this to flexi ties which never look right to me. Deep black texture with subtle highlights, good seams and nice detail in these tuxes. Sometimes the colors in the shirts seem a little oversaturated (particularly the dark purple and dark yellow), making the highlights unnoticeable.

Quality: 4/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack, sizes for attachments…): 4/5 - Price:3.5/5 - Value for money: 4/5

The Solid Wave hair from Find Ash, shown here in Neo Black, is a fun style, but I’m not happy with the sparseness of the prims in the back which, when combined with the flexiness, causes bald spots to show through. Makes this hair a decent one for a photo shoot, but not sure I would wear it out and about SL much, which is too bad because I really like the style.

Finishing off the look, I’ve chosen the Gallop shoes from Kalnins, in black and the Kavi Poet ring from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Enjoy!

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Dressy | Monday, August 4th, 2008

A trip through edo Tone’s Styles of edo shop can be overwhelming. He has more suits and combinations of jackets, vests, pants, ties, than you could ever wish for.

This new black suit comes with an open shirt and vest (shown); white shirt and tie; white shirt, tie and vest; vest and red scarf (not shown). I really like the detail on this suit, particularly the belt on the pants. edo has a great eye for dressy men’s wear. For those of us who love suits, this is much appreciated!

Truth’s Ersatz in Sable is the hair pictured here. Truth is about to discontinue his stuff, and is having a huge sale, so go check it out. The hair is now 50L per pack of three colors, or 350L for the fatpack. This is a great deal, so get to Truth before it’s not available any more.

The Dublin boots from JCS are always a good choice to round out a suit. Also, Mhaijik Guillaume’s new titanium ring is a nice accessory to wear at any time. The Sofia glasses from Primoptic are also featured.

Lastly, Damiani has come out with version 2 of the Joshua skin, with new tones, Olive being shown here. It’s a great tone, very natural, not too dark, not too pale.

Enjoy!

Nouveau chez / New release at: “Styles of Edo”

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Dressy | Thursday, January 17th, 2008

New suits by edo Tone, maker of the tuxes shown a couple months ago here at slmen. edo has a good feel for men’s dressy wear. I like the way the jackets hang naturally; I opted for the 4-button style here. I like the rough, loose texture of the fabric, coupled with the linen sweater. My only complaint is about the sleeves (no, Ben, you’re not the only one!). I tried to loosen up the sweater sleeves to add a little looseness to the jacket sleeves, only to find that the sweater sleeves only came 3/4 of the way down my arm, so the jacket sleeves looked awkward. I would have liked them a little looser than they are in the pics.

With the suit, I’ve chosen the black City Walk shoes from Shiny Things, and a haircut I’ve been finding myself wearing more often in world, Wentz from Truth Hawks. A good, slightly messy, casual hair style that lets you see a bit more of the av’s eyes. ;)

The updated Envision skin from Body Politik is also seen here!

Perry Proudhon | Dressy, Formal, Night | Sunday, October 28th, 2007

With all the formal affairs that seem to occur in world, you’ll be ready for the next wedding, ball, or sim opening with this tuxedo from edo Tone. Tuxedo sets of various combination range in price from 550 to 600L, or you can buy the jacket and pants without shirt in a pack for 400L. The shirt without vest is 165L and 195L with the vest. It’s really a well-made tux, very natural, with beautiful textures. My favorite is the shirt with silver vest and tie…it really shimmers! Paired here with the versatile City Walk shoes in black from Shiny Things and the really cool and economical stacked color-changing rings from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Spécial Créateur : edo Tone for “Styles of edo”

Edo Tone does simple suits for men and women, to wear with a huge choice of shirts (you can choose from 40 shirts!)

Today, I show you his first suit without skirt layer, which is the best way to get a good fitting for most avatars.
You can get the suit alone for 200 Lindens, or with a combi shirt-tie on the shirt layer for 250 Lindens. Each shirt will cost you 68 Lindens.

• What makes me happy: the choice of shirts, the very good design of the ties, the modifiable shirt layer which allows you to give some volume to the jacket’s sleeves, and the price!
• What I wish: the suit comes only in black, I would like more colors!
