Going Places

Happy Wednesday!

Of course, The Men’s Department is open, so there will be a flood of blog posts featuring the items available this round. So here, have another!

Seriously though, this is a great round featuring an awesome collection of products from some of the best designers in SL.

First, this jacket from Cold Ash is just fantastic. I bought the Classic pack. There are three jacket color options included, five shirt colors, and you can wear it with or without the shirt. You even get three sizes of rigged mesh and a two of fitted mesh. The FitMesh v1 fit me perfectly and it moves with my AO very well.      I love these SuperSkinny jeans by Le Primitif are probably my favorite jeans in SL right now. They fit extremely well and come in a handful of great colors. I haven’t found a top yet that they don’t fit under!

     I’ve used facial hair from Hermony for a while now, but this is the first skin I’ve bought. It works really well with my shape, and the three tones for sale at TMD are all so good I had to buy all of them. There is a scuffy face tattoo layer included, body hair options, as well as Slink appliers available. It’s an awesome deal for a very high-quality, fresh-faced skin. I might have to check out the mainstore again!

     And a note about this pretty sweet location – Sunny Fields. It’s home of TMD Mainstore (NOT the Men’s Department). There are aircraft and metro-style trains available for sale, all on a beautiful desert SIM. There is a full runway/landing strip, and you can rez your own aircraft to fly, props even. It’s also just a fun place to explore. Or to take pictures, obviously!

Well, have a happy hump day! Credits incoming!

Hey guys! How was your Halloween? Mine was… slow. In SL and RL.

Anyway, here is what was supposed to be my Halloween post, two days late. It’s okay though; I think this look isn’t just suited for Halloween. It’s a good, modern, mysterious look great for any masquerade ball.

I also had no idea what to title this, so, whatever X-[

You all know that I love me some Kauna. Ross Myhre puts out some of the best men’s suits & tuxedos on the grid, in my humble opinion. The classic, clean lines of this tuxedo are wonderfully modern, and I love peak lapels. My only gripe? That there isn’t a tuxedo shirt option (with black buttons) with a spread collar. But, that’s just my personal taste. This is, hands down, the best tuxedo I’ve found for my more slender frame.

These great patent leather formal shoes are from Gabriel, and they WERE available at the October edition of The Men’s Department. I’m sure they will be available in the mainstore, eventually.

Why am I shirtless in a cathedral? Because it’s SL, damnit…

     I wanted to bring some attention to this awesome mask and magnificent beard as well. The mask, by OtC, comes with chained/non chained versions, and is one piece – so you can stretch it on different sides instead of all at once. I love the horns, and the minimalism of it (especially the one with no chain) has a certain elegance to it that I love.

Now to my beard – I love this thing. I saw the vendor image while browsing some Flickr groups, and I HAD to get it. It’s by DossiEr, and it includes a texture HUD to change the hair color. It’s also modifiable, so you can change the color even further if you wish. It includes the mustache and the beard together, or as separate attachments for a more custom fit.

The location that I shot at for this post – Morphe Northwinds – is full of gorgeous Medieval builds, not least of all is the grand St. Illuminatios Cathedral. This is one of the most amazing buildings I’ve seen in SL, and everything is extremely detailed. I love the stained glass especially; I only wish that SL light will actually behave like real light and cast beautiful jewel tones from those windows. There are also a ton of gorgeous castles and other builds available for sale. I want a castle now. Seriously.

Anyway – that’s all for now. Credits follow 🙂
