Aloha peeps – glad you dropped by!
I’ve been blogging Menswear and Home Decor for… errr ahem X number of years and still really enjoy it! On Facebook & Flickr I belong to a plethora of Menswear and Decor groups and publish and link to this blog from those areas.
In addition, I’ve been features writer on ‘Love to Decorate’ magazine and from that interesting work, I’ve gleaned a lot of fascinating and useful information on the Home & Garden world of Second Life. I’ve also worked as a writer for various virtual Fashion and Lifestyle magazines – interviewed loads of fabulous Designers and Creatives – and even tried my hand at modeling – but nowadays I live the simple SL life which I enjoy with friends and family, not least of all my lovely partner & husband, Arrchie and our son, Danilo🙂
I wouldn’t say I’m one of SL’s greatest photographers *smiles* but I can take good quality high resolution photographs and I’m a dab hand at Photoshop, so if you like my work please get in touch and I’ll promise to do your brand proud!
A huge thank you to my sponsors – see side bar for slurls to their stores❤
There’s a stunning group gift just waiting for us gents over at Heth Haute Couture! Only one more week when the “Carlito Men’s Suit” can be collected, until the end of September in fact, so better get your skates on🙂
A couture suit, this all in one mesh is so easy to fit. The material for the jacket is a tooled bronze leather that looks three dimensional and is sure to make a fashion statement with the six button front and peak lapel. Add to that the black crepe slacks, emerald tie and black silk shirt and you’ve got a very nice suit. Also included is a pair of black Oxford shoes and filler prim socks, and a couple of alpha layers with and without feet, versatile for when you want to wear other shoes.
Sizing is for five standard sizes XS – XL. I was wearing the S size for a change as I wanted to get that ultra slim look that’s rather popular at the moment. I must say that this size fitted very well around the neck. Here’s a back view on midday light setting – and it’s just as good.

With so many beach sims in SL, you still need summer gear all the year round! So how about these casual pants from Petit Chat for a start? The “Color me Pants” are available in a choice of six textures – the materials are smooth corduroy with soft pigskin leather pockets that give comfort and style. Materials are enabled to give depth and realism.
You get 5 standard sizes XS – XL which I tried out on legacy and mesh bodies to good effect. You can get away with a lot of standard sizing apparel on mesh bodies with a bit of fiddling on the alpha system, these seem to be easier than the FitMesh variety, at least they are for me. I was wearing the M size pants. If you are fitting on a legacy body, the sliders to alter for that perfect fit are – butt size, package and saddle bags. Don’t forget to keep a copy of your original shape before you start.
The textures are – Red, Anthracite, Iced Coffee, Limpet Shell, White and Peach, all original textures by designer, Trinity Yazimoto. You won’t find these anywhere else. T-shirts and tops fit nicely over these pants as they fit closely to the avatar body. Here’s a montage of all the textures:-
Visit Petit Chat mainstore – although not a huge amount, there is some really nice gent’s apparel!
