It’s wickedly hot here in the northeast U.S., so Jax and I decided to seek out the tropical breezes at Key West. It was the perfect occasion to break out the colorful Leif shorts we’d recently picked up from RIOT.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have a thing for leather. Without going into detail, let me just say that I move in circles where wearing black leather is natural. So it should come as no surprise to find me blogging about leather biker jackets in Second Life.
Lapointe & Bastchild is a Second Life classic. I commend them because while continuing to honor the Goth roots that made them so popular a decade ago, they have evolved and stayed fresh with their mainstream S’Wear range. A lot of creators were unable to make that shift, but L&B continues to be one of the best on the grid.
I could have been the Hoorenbeek poster boy. The Hoorenbeek men’s clothing store was like the cathedral of regular-guy clothes. When they converted to mesh, they were unbeatable. It was the go-to place for men’s wardrobe basics, especially shoes. I bought almost everything they made—suits, jackets, jeans, shorts, sneakers, dress shoes, tuxedos, coats, boots, t-shirts and more. I was a walking ad.
When I noticed the subtle luster of this Relaxed Fit Shirt by ..::ILLI::.., I instantly pictured myself at a cafe table in Portofino, overlooking the Paraggi while enjoying a nice Vermentino. But it goes anywhere you want to be relaxed but refined.
This outfit from Deadwool has quickly become a favorite. While the shirt only fits with Deadwool pants (these tweed trousers or the Broberry jeans), the tweed trousers and especially the Oxford shoes are extremely versatile. Needless to say, the mesh and textures are of the highest quality.
It is the beginning of summer as I create my first posts on this blog. But as I am just starting out, I’m going to begin by backtracking a season or two, to highlight some of my favorite things.
