Retro Business

The well worn leather blazer is the starting point for this retro inspired look, the great jacket and sweater combo from Argrace is warm and sophisticated, but maintains a casual feel for great Fall wearability. The layering of textures is what makes this style really slick, circa 1970s business entrepreneur slick. The Corduroy striping on the ‘Boy Next Door’ Pants from MUWU blend perfectly with the knit of the Sassy Scarf from Chase.

High Fashion

Monochromatic –  done before, done often, but still an easy way to dress if you know how to work with the textures and details of the garments you pull into a look.  For a style that shows of your individuality and a hint of high fashion, go with classics like charcoals and blacks.  The starting point for this look was the great Afghan stole from :sey, if you only grab one scarf this season – this is the one.

Cobra

It’s always nice to change up your wardrobe from time to time, and if you are Mr. Blue Jeans it never hurts to switch it up into a classy casual once in a while to show people that your sense of style knows no bounds. Inspiration for a great style can start anywhere, that is my method of operating, one great piece, one idea and a great eye for detail can make all the difference. :sey has come out with some great items of late, one that I couldn’t resist was the snake knit vest in black.

Fore Play

Time for a little friendly sport, maybe 18 holes and then drinks back at the clubhouse. Either way you look at it the preppy/ivy league golf look is a fun one, and after stumbling upon the great mix and match menswear at Gbberish, it was a bit of a no brainer as well.

Play Me!

Cheerno Destiny from AC Store sent me some of his new skins few days ago. I agreed to make some shapes so that Cheerno and Sally would style them. After 4 hrs that it took me to make shapes I decided to take a break and I stumbled across Monogrind’s new locations where I got this armour. Cheerno’s skin and armour simply called to each other.

Urban cool style.

Skating is one of my favourite activities in Real Life. I can spend whole afternoon in summer with my mates just cruising the streets and looking for curbs.

Making a Statement

Written by Maddox DuPont

Men have an inherent need to stand out. Generally speaking, men want to be in control, to be noticed, to attract the opposite sex (well, mostly), and to be seen as successful, confident and strong. This often opposes the way male clothing is designed in Real life and why it is so colourful in Second Life. With women’s clothing, there is such a great, broad variety of ways to express different moods; female fashion is flamboyant, bright, sexy, and fun. Men’s clothing however, is much more subdued.

Is it surprising then, that when some men – or even stylists, try to make a fashion statement in Second Life, their ensembles are often unwearable. No one wants to look like a Christmas Tree. Men want to stand out for a show – not for a beating. In saying that, it is still possible to express yourself with color, even if you are male. Keep in mind that less is almost always more – two colors will often do, in addition to black and white.

When it is time to make a fashion statement, I suggest you restrain your colors. Sure we want to stand out, but we still do not want to look like women. Rely on details to add color, flair and originality to your outfit. Men often forget about the small details. They are concerned only with having the biggest and latest items. That’s why you see so many guys addicted to muscle and red cars in real life, while in Second Life our male fashionists parade somebody else’s idea of style. Just because is it is a latest release, that does not make it fashionable. Remember, unless you are making a trend, you are following one.

To create a trend you do not need to be a designer or a stylist. You just need to be creative. Clothes are your palette, mood is your brush, occasion is your canvas.
