It’s been some time since I last posted for Second Life Fashion, so I was really pleased to see this fabulous suit by Heth Haute Couture, which includes matching shoes.

I went to the Angel Manor West sim and photographed in the grand surroundings of the Rose Theatre!  This suit has stunning textures on it and it’s easy as pie to fit.  You get 5 sizes – XS – XL and a combined alpha for suit and shoes. Shoes in Small and Medium sizing.

The jacket does have a pattern to it, darker brocade on base material and it shows up Inworld more than here in the photographs, but it’s nice and subtle. The trousers fit nicely and have a good shape. The waistcoat is amazing – beautiful pattern with buttons that stand out well. The fancy tie effect is included in the suit so there’s no fiddling at all.

I was wearing size Large. The shoes were size Small which was quite adequate. This outfit would be suitable for legacy avatars. If you have a Mesh body, try out the demo first. I was using SLINK AvEnhance hands in a medium size which fitted well. You may need to lift the shoes slightly to fit closer to the trousers and Heth thoughtfully provides a handy posestand in this set so you don’t have to search through Inventory.


This suit is presently being shown at December Swank event and it’s on until the end of the month.  Very reasonably priced for an all in product. Do go and visit because there’s other Menswear designers showing, gifts around the Christmas tree and a fun skating rink 🙂
