You know you’re either doing it right now or are going to do it some time today. I’ve done it a few times where I’m searching and searching, but break down and just go with an old standby. You need to find that suit that’s going to get you through New Year’s Eve. Often I’ve found my suit 30min before shoving off to a NYE party. Thankfully I had this one cleaned, pressed, and sent my way c/o Jura Shepherd for Shiki Designs, so let’s get into it:

Whoa… what is this thing? Do I still blog here or something? 😛 It has been a few weeks since I peeked into here, but I’ve been a very busy man RL and had a few things come my way lately that I had no choice but to put them up.
But I’m definitely not a soldier. I’m back again with another look for all of your asses. Essentially what happened here is that I completely forgot about this fantastic jacket that I picked up a while ago at the clothing fair for RFL and I really needed to get this out there. So without further ado…
The military jacket shown above is a really really fantastic pick-up that I got from SF Designs, as aforementioned, through the clothing fair. If memory serves me correctly there were a scant few designers who tackled menswear for their RFL items through the clothing fair and this was definitely a shining star that really jumped out at me as being awesome. It’s reminiscent of the military jackets that D&G put out in one of their shows, but it’s definitely more of an influenced-by-style piece than a straight copy. I love the contrast piping around the edge of the shoulder piece and, for my avatar, this was a really easy coat to fit the pieces to myself. When you don’t have to labor over fixing each and every piece, it just makes your SL so much easier. And, obviously, it’s not only a great value for this jacket, but you get the good karma of knowing that you’re contributing to the SLRFL cause as well. Stroll by SF Designs and pick it up. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I’m back again with a few things that got caught into my backlog. So a long while back Shiryu Musashi of Musashi Do dropped these great suits on me with his new InfiniTie system in them. What I mean by a long while back is… I wore one of the suits to a big New Year’s Eve party. I had almost given up hope that I’d actually get my ass in gear and blog them, but I finally decided that this would be the perfect time to blog them. Alright, enough of my crazy talk here’s the pic:
The collection of suits that I have here are all inspired by cities in Italy (Rome, Torino, and Milan) and they’re all very fantastically crafted suits. For my explanations here we’ll work this group of suits as it’s setup left to right. Please also note that because I was given all of these suits, I did a lot of mixing and matching to get the ties that I liked. To be honest, I don’t think any of the ties I have above originally come with any of the suits.
Alright ladies and gentlemens… I’m back in it to win it. Even though I really have no idea what I’m going to win. Maybe there’s a double secret probation prize!!! Oh yeah I shamelessly stole Plurk icon because WordPress doesn’t have anything like it. Don’t judge me with your judging eyes. My latest look:
So, to be honest, I had put this look together completely differently and taken shots… and then realized that one of the items was a 50L Friday item and the other was an exclusive LeLutka gift that is no longer in their update group notices any more. I always hate when I go through my entire look at the end of my writings here and find out that things are no longer available. With this somewhat simple look I do actually some things to talk about. Those things would be the jacket, jeans, and the kicks, so let’s get into it.
The first thing I’ll talk about is the XY jacket from LeLutka. As I mentioned before, it came out in blue as a gift from the LeLutka group. I actually had no idea this jacket even had come out because notices have been being funky in SL. I saw the jacket on Shop with Takeshi & Friends and then went to check the notice history on my LeLutka group. Now, I check the notice history on all of my groups occasionally just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. But I totally digress, the main thing I really like about this jacket are the rivets. If you’re into the femme fashion, you’ve seen them on the shoulders on a lot of lady’s jackets lately. I love how they snagged that concept, but made it very manly on this jacket. Also, the hood on the jacket is cool and almost unexpectedly found back there when you look at it from the front.
The next thing I wanted to talk about here are the jeans and belt, which are shamelessly stolen (noticing a pattern here?) from a full outfit that Jamie Holmer put together over @ Indi Designs called Frasier. I threw them into this look because I really liked the belt + jeans combo she had and it just felt right in this look. The belt has a great rounded buckle and that’s not something that you see in a lot of belts in-world these days. Although, I should say that’s not what I’ve seen in my limited belt collection as I don’t really wear very many belts in-world. The well-crafted, rolled-up cuffs were definitely something I thought was cool in these jeans… (as well as how good the back pockets accentuate my assets).
The final thing I wanted to talk about in this look are the shoes! Omg the shoes! When 2Real Okelli dropped these shoes on me, I dropped the box onto the ground and threw them on immediately. My initial thoughts were, “Awesome! I swear these remind me of something. Oh! The Star Wars Adidas shoes!” For reference if you want to see all of the Adidas Star Wars kicks, they’re here. These shoes come with your standard HUD color changer, as almost all of 2Real’s shoes do, and also with the custom textures as well, so I went to town and got them to line up with this look. I love shoes that I can adjust to fit whatever I’m wearing.
Alright that’s all I’ve got for this post. I’ll have some new posts coming up soon, once I can get some pictures put together to get out to you guys, which you can translate into, “Yeah the next post is going to be a while from now.” I may do a mini-RL menswear S/S10 post because I really just haven’t had the time to go through all of the images. We shall see and I make no promises, but if you really want something just remind me or get on me about it and I’ll throw something out there. Peace!

So…yeah I finally remembered that I have this blog thing. My life has been crazy lately, so the blog was put on the back burner for a lil’ bit. And now I’m back…with stolen items. OK sort of stolen items. Even with the crazy lifestyle I’ve been living lately, I’m still keeping up with the male blogs that I browse on my lunch time. These two looks are based around two items that I saw that I needed to get.
The first stolen item is this fantastically created jacket from Mr. Poet that I saw on the Jewnas Brothers blog. This version of the coat is the opposite version of the one that James is wearing. It reminds me of Fresh Prince of Bel Air when Will flips his blazer inside out because the paisley pattern on the inside of the coat looks cooler. I’ll let James be the cool one because he can pull off more crazy styles than I can. The next stolen piece here came from Ryan @ Men’s Second Style. After he highlighted a bunch of pieces from YV, I had to roll over there and pick them up. The textures on the accessories are fantastically created. Here I use the Victor knuckle gloves along with the Neo oversized watch. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve always been a big fan of the wide-band watches. The final stolen piece from this is the scarf from Viva La Glam. Sadly, I can’t remember who I stole this one from. I just remember seeing somebody wearing some Viva La Glam stuff and I hadn’t even realized that Chloris (the designer) had reopened her shop. I scooted my butt over there and picked up this fantastic scarf.
Now the main piece to this that I stole comes from a fantastic blog post I saw on the Le Look! blog. As soon as I saw that coat I knew I had to have it. It is a little more expensive than I thought it would be, but it’s really worth it. Not everybody can pull off this coat, so don’t go suggesting this to somebody that’s very new to SL because it’ll look very out-of-place on them. A coat like this requires the extra details that only an SLer with a good amount of experience in the fashion world can pull off. That may also speak to why the price tag is how it is. I love the soft floral touches to this coat and the flexi is put together quite well. I don’t think I stole anything else from this one other than maybe the :sey shirt that’s underneath the coat from Bronson. Although technically I already had that in my inventory, he simply reminded me that I hadn’t blogged it yet. 😉 You can’t see all of the detail of this shirt in my shot obviously, but from the little you can see it’s a great purple plaid and the black detailed edging is fantastic as well.
That’s all I’ve got for my latest post. My lifestyle is going to be getting busier, so I can’t say when the next one is coming but I will say that there will be a next one. New York’s S/S10 fashion week begins on Thursday, so you bet your bootay that I’ll be watching for those images when they come strolling through Men.Style.com, NY Mag, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, etc.
