Hoodies and Sweaters and Jackets…Oh My!

Alllllright back at you again off of a break. RL has been crazy busy, but here’s a little post I’ve been brewing for a bit. I’ve come across a lot of cool hoodies, sweaters, and jackets in the past month or two, so I thought I’d hit you with some of it. Here are some of the standouts that I liked:

HSJ - Laqroki

Starting it off here we actually have a hybrid. It’s the hoodie sweater in black and military (green) from Laqroki. I’m really feeling the rich textures and little hints of styling on this. It’s a very contemporary, clean, and cool style that really drew me to it. Note the accentuated seams on both of them as well. You can find the hoodie sweater in 6 different colors. Another thing of note in this look are the classic jeans in F9 (a dark gray/black) from Calypso Giano. I’m a big fan of the more hardcore style of Calypso Giano. A lot of place like that tend to be trite and overdone, but he really hits that sweet spot of hardcore. The shades are pretty cool and they come from FNKY. I first picked up on these shades from a Flickr shot by Tschey Ballinger. I had been in the mood for some new shades and as soon as I saw them in that shot I knew I had to have them and I knew they would look perfect with this look. Last, but certainly not least, Mad Designs has been taking advantage of a lack of new styles (Armidi) or in-transition (UncleWeb Studios) hair designers. I’m in the UncleWeb group and honestly on a daily basis you’ll get a random group chat session open up of someone asking about where the main store went. Anyway, I like the styles that Mad Designs is pouring out and this style, entitled Eric, is definitely one of my faves.

HSJ - EmeryLINE

Next up here we hit my favorite blues. In the full shot we have something really cool that I found at Emery. It’s a very chill and unique full-zip blue hoodie with a white tee and diagonally-striped blue tie. The tie is really great because it’s actually a thin cylindrical shape. What’s great about that is it allows for the tie to be flexi, but still gives some depth and shape to it. Whereas when you get a flat flexi tie, you can’t get any depth to the tie at all because any width you put on the tie ends up making the tie look bad. It’s a very innovative way to use what little flexi that SL allows to your advantage. The other main piece here on the full shot is new Shoryuken jeans from GearShift. Shoryuken is actually homage to a move from the video game Street Fighter. In the original Street Fighter game both Ken and Ryu were able to use this move and they would actually yell out “SHORYUKEN!” when he did the jab to 2-hit uppercut. Enough about my limited Street Fighter knowledge…back to the jeans. They’re along the same lines as the basic Maverick jeans from GearShift with an added worn dragon character up the left leg. I’m guessing that the dragon up the side is actually a graphic related to either Ryu or Ken. In the large pic on the right we have the LINE Winter Mens Shirt in blue. From what I’ve been told the designer, zippir Kayo, is a Turkish designer and I really like her stuff. The men’s/unisex selection is pretty small, but I think there’s a lot of potential. I love how the pockets are on an angle in this and real hand-knitted feel to the eagle on the chest gives it an air of authenticity.

HSJ - Sey

Finally, we’ve got the 2nd Date jacket from :sey. I love the woodsy appeal of this jacket with the brown leather accents that break up between the pattern and it also carries a real fashionable look to it. If nothing else, it’s a really interesting piece that’s a touch outside of my normal realm. It has your tartan print and the breaking up of the fabric is definitely something on the horizon in fashion world. The straps put this all together to make it a very excellent jacket. There’s actually 3 different sleeve options with this jacket where you can also wear it with rolled up sleeves or long sleeves without the leather on the arms. It’s definitely a statement piece that needs to be displayed on its own and doesn’t play too nice if you try to throw too many other items with accents at it. Your outfit can get a little busy if you add jeans or shoes with too much going on them. Again, I used the Classic Jeans from Calypso Giano to finish this off, but this time I went with the F8 (dark brown) jeans.

That’s all I’ve got for this one and sorry this was so late. It’s kind of a collective of items that I picked up through January and better late than never. Enjoy!
