Dressing up for the Holidays

Happy first of December Corner Creatures ❤

Dressing up for the Holidays

Today I am back with a post on men’s stuff, and as is tradition I am blogging this waaay after everyone else has, hehe. But really this isn’t about being first out with the news, it is more about how clothing, accessories and furniture works in our everyday SL.

A quick recap on what this series is all about: I wanted to start blogging men’s stuff in SL since there are about 25 designers making stuff for the ladies for every one that makes for men, myself included.
It felt bad to drop several K’s of lindens on an alt to pull this off, so I asked my RL husband if I could update his avi and use him to blog. That way if my lovely other half ever wanted to enter SL again he would be up to date and have lots of neat clothing and hair to chose from. I was generously granted permission and got right to it. I run most of what I buy by my RL hubby just to make sure the items is to his taste and to keep a male perspective on this whole thing. The previous posts in this series can be found here: Completely Revamping a Classic Linden Lab Avatar. Revamping a Classic SL Avatar Part 2 New Hair all over! New Hair all over!

So, I’ll get right too it shall I.

Today I thought it fitting to bring up a nice look for the coming Holidays. And what is more classic than shirt and waistcoat? Not much I can imagine.
This style from Cold-Ash I got at Men’s only Monthly in November and thought it ticked all the boxes. It comes with a HUD with three shirt colour options in red white and black. And six texture options for the waistcoat, I am so happy the waistcoat is making a comeback, Yaay!
For this look I went with a red shirt and the matching red patterned texture for the waistcoat. I paired it all with the black chinos also from Cold-Ash at Novembers MOM. These come with colourchanging belt that I did not use here. The HUD does have every shade of brown you could wish for though:)
I just love how the mesh is made on these chinos. The folds in the fabric looks so natural and realistic and don’t get me started on the texturing! These will be a wardrobe staple in the year to come I think. Really classic pair of black trousers that goes with anything.
The same with the shirt and waistcoat combo really, great textures and with some cool texture detailing on the chest. I didn’t notice this at first, but this shirt buttons has little sculls on them, haha, really neat detail that makes for something extra.

In my opinion this is a very classic look with a modern twist which is actually a nod to the past, but hey, that is the name of the game right?

As some of you may have noticed the picture of this post is a recreation of one I took about a year ago. I thought it would be fun to take another one with both of us dressed in all mesh and bento. We need a hand pose HUD from Belleza though! Pretty please with sugar on top!

Anyway, I hope you like this little post
