Dress To Impress

Dress to impress, that is what I was always told by my parents in regards to many situations: dates, interviews, social events, the theater, opera, etc.  But most of all be comfortable in your own skin.  I love to dress in vests and bowties, they snazz up a simple white dress shirt and can be worn with jeans or slacks.

Damien Fate has just released the new Edward suit line at FATEwear.  This suit goes far beyond anything else he has released and that is saying a great deal as he strives already to go above and beyond.  The Edward line contains 7 different looks!  You can wear it in a full three piece suit (shirt, tie, waistcoat, jacket) or you can casual it down to the point you only wear the shirt untucked, no tie.  With every combo in between and an exceptional over the shoulder jacket option (including animation) the dapper dresser has only the limitation of his imagination with this new line.

Equally you can buy additional ties and shirts to liven it up and give it that YOU feel.  To see all the suit options, features and goodies, check out the official FATEwear blog.

No matter what your needs are in SL, do yourself a favor and at least own one great suit.  As with real life, owning a black three piece suit can be used for just about anything that arises save for the black tie tuxedo only situation.  I learned long ago that a man that owns a nice suit, knows how to wear it, accessorize it, and liven it up can certainly impress.  A real life tip, learn to tie different tie knots.  Do not rely only on the Windsor knot for your ties!  You can buy books to learn or consult youtube!  My favorite is the Eldredge knot.

The Eldredge Knot

The Eldredge Knot

When I wear this knot on my tie, I always get asked, “Hey, what kind of knot is that?”  It is a great conversation starter and can definitely earn you some respect.  Spice it up with a classy tie pin or clip, but most importantly wear it with pride.  Check out this great tutorial on how to tie the Eldredge knot.  Also check out the Trinity knot, it’s another of my favorites!

A good collection of bowties and ties can certainly change the way your clothing looks, and if you feel as if your closet has gotten drab, try buying a new tie, learning a new knot and putting it with a shirt you haven’t worn in awhile, it’s bound to give it some new life.

Brothers In Arms

Brothers In Arms

Photos Nikolaidis released a series of beautiful mesh kilts this weekend through his store A:S:S.  I will always think fondly of the A:S:S store and creations, for it is the shop I have been a customer of since arriving on the grid.

I can recall the day I found A:S:S.  I was perusing the search feature for male clothing, but I wanted something unique and slightly alternative.  I do not have a good enough memory to recall the search terms that led me to Pho’s great brand, but I’ve held tightly to the landmark ever since.

Each time I created a new character or a buddy wanted some cool guy clothes that blended well in multiple genres, I handed the A:S:S landmark out.

Do you recall your first shop that you found and fell in love with in SecondLife?

The kilts are lovely! I am showcasing the three tartan patterns available, but there are also solid colors as well.  The belt is a thing of beauty, with intricate design and it just looks like you mean business wearin’ it.  Ladies, do not discard this kilt, you will look sexy in them too!

It was a  lot of fun setting this scene up, and getting some much needed use out of my great mesh tavern.  My Highlander complained about no wenches being in the tavern but I was excited to have my pints and battle with the new guy in town.  Psst, it’s Gabriella’s MALT!  Making his debut.  Lookin’ good cherie, lookin’ good!  I still look very French no?  Kilt and all!

Thanks Pho, I had a great time doing this photograph with your lovely kilts.
