Casually Smart

with 3 comments

It’s quite difficult to find the smart casual look in Second Life® Menswear, so I was really pleased to receive the latest outfit from Heth Haute Couture  which is called the “Rodrigo Men’s Ensemble”.

This is a slim fit look, so even the larger sizes will reflect that style.  I went over to the St Kitts sim which is a gorgeous tropical interpretation of the real life St Kitts in the Caribbean, and took photographs against a rich background of palm trees and furniture suitable for hot climates. If you like beach sims, you’ll adore this one.

So what’s in the set?  Well, there’s the slim fit jacket with 4 button opening and mandarin collar, and this has a relaxed t-shirt and brocade waistcoat insert.  Then there’s matching chino pants as a separate piece, really nice brushed leather zip boots, and Fedora Hat.  The jacket and pants come in Standard sizing XS to XL – I was wearing the size M pants with the size L jacket.  Boots and Fedora come with a handy resizer which is easy to use.  The included alpha will take care of all the pieces.

I’m also wearing the new brooch from HHC – this is a fun and beautifully made piece.  If you click on the bee, its wings will animate as if it’s buzzing!  Created with over 300 brilliant cut canary, apricot and black diamonds. A very unique couture jewelry collectable, the “Jeweled Bee Brooch” was created to celebrate Earth Day all year long and to draw attention to our dwindling world bee population.

Pick up your copy of the “Rodrigo Men’s Ensemble” and “Jeweled Bee Brooch” from these outlets:

The skin I’m wearing is from 7 Deadly s{K}ins  as I like to include one system skin a month from them (I know a lot of you still like to wear system).  I was playing the gacha at the front of the store and this is the “Jaimy” skin # 6 from the gacha of the same name.  Only L$50 for this!  They must be joking, it’s such good quality.  A nice mid tone skin with beard and cut eyebrow feature.  Why don’t you try your luck?  Don’t forget to click on the Mini Mania boards, too.  Low amounts of hits required, some as low as 10 hits.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

Holding back the Years

When I first saw this fabulous cap and hair by no.match, I was reminded of an ancient (to some of you) song by Simply Red (1985).  The lead singer was much into wearing caps and my partner Arrchie describes the style as “bad boy with a bit of good in him”. I like it!

Anways, I’d been waiting ages for the right skin to come along and lo and behold there was one waiting for me at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins new set of gacha in the guy’s department. The Lars system skin gacha looked very good so I put my 50L in and got the Lars #5.  The skin is a mid tone with freckles and slight beard shadow, it suits the cap and hair so well.

So what to put with it?  I’d been making an Art Deco scene recently (will be on the next post) and because the furniture required me to at least do one pose, I went to see about casual male fashion in the 1930s.  Apparently, the Duke of Windsor started off the casual look with canvas slacks and tucked into the waist sports shirts, at least he made it popular in the UK and Europe. Otherwise, it was suits and shirts as usual. Some Hollywood film stars also contributed to a more relaxed casual style for men at that time.  Flat caps were worn and also, would you believe it, tank tops!  And I thought they came out in the 1970s but they were a revival of an older style.

I updated the look with an over-the-waist shirt by Cold Ash and an eagle necklace by RE Industries.  The Zeed watch followed the vintage style rather well, I thought.

Duh! – Tassel Loafers (on system feet) dollarbie on MP

RE Industries – Eagle Necklace with texture HUD
