121. Gentleman grey "Sulivan" suit and black "Trilby" hat
 


The Gentleman Sulivan suit is mid-grey and comes with jacket, trousers, waistcoat, white shirt, and grey-and-white striped tie. The Gentleman Trilby hat and Gentleman Edmond shoes were bought as separate purchases at the store. The designer for all the items is Raph Dirval.

The suit can be worn in two ways - with the jacket or without. The jacket (images 1 to 3) has attachments for the collar+lapels, the cuffs, and the slightly flared lower section. In images 4 to 6 the jacket has been reomved. The grey waistcoat and white shirt are a combination item and cannot be worn separately. The shirt collar and tie are formed from a separate prim attachment.
 


PeeWee's new skin is the Redgrave Craig-02 by designer Emilia Redgrave. This skin comes with and without integral scalp hair. The integral hair can be seen in the images where the hat is worn. For the other images, the separate hairstyle attachment is Tonic Cameron in 'Umber' by designer Blaine Alderson. The hat is the Gentleman Trilby in black/black by designer Ralph Dirval. The hat is available in many colour combinations at the store. The shoes are Gentleman Edmond in black by designer Raph Dirval.

122. BMC jogging outfit in green and yellow
 


The BMC jogging outfit comprises yellow shirt, green shorts and green trousers, white running shoes, socks, wrist sweat-band, and baseball cap. Also featured is a white pair of shorts which were bought as a separate item at the BMC store. All the BMC items are by designer Ben Manga.

The yellow shirt has rolled sleeve attachments. The shirt is provided on all layers.

The green shorts can be seen in images 1 and 5. They have attachments for the lower hem sections. The shorts have yellow crown motif and yellow stripes. They have a separate groin bulge attachment which can be seen best in image 5. They also have drawstring ends in white with black tips hanging from the waistband.

The green trousers (worn as an alternative to the shorts) can be seen in images 6 and 7. They use the same bulge and drawstring attachments as the shorts. They have lower-leg attachments which I found difficult to combine with the BMC trainers which have upper parts which conflict as the avatar moves about. To avoid this conflict, I have used (in image 6) the tucked version of the trousers (which are provided on the underpants layer and do not need the lower leg attachments) with the BMC trainers. In image 7, the shoes have been replaced by different ones without the uppers which enables the trousers lower-leg attachments to be worn effectively. The green trousers are suppiled in an alternative version with one leg rolled up - not illustrated here.

The BMC trainers are white with green and yellow stripes. The socks have attractive rolled top attachments.

In images 8 and 9, PeeWee is wearing white BMC shorts instead of the green ones. The white shorts were bought as a separate item at the BMC store. They have very good lower hem attachments.
 


The ginger hairstyle worn under the baseball cap is the Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Penny' by designer Bryce Tully. I adjusted this hairstyle (which has copy and modify permissions) to remove some locks at the front and side which poked through the hat.

The hairstyle worn in the pictures without the cap (images 8 and 10) is the Ciro in 'Blonde' by designer Sebass Easterwood.

The shoes worn in image 7 are white running shoes from the Gizza Summer Polo outfit by designer Giz Seorn.

123. Hate This "Country Guy" clothing set
 


This clothing set comprises jeans, shirt, boots, hat, neckerchief, and wheat "mouthie". The designer of the clothing is Corvus Szpiegel. 'Hate This' is the brand name.

The jeans are provided in two versions – one for use with lower-leg flared attachments (image 1), the other boot-cut (image 2). The jeans have grey sewn-on kneepads. See image 4 for a better view of the lower-leg attachments.

The shirt is provided in two versions – tucked as above, and outside the trousers as in images 5 and 6.

The boots as provided are attached at the lower-leg attachment points of the avatar. This means that as the avatar articulates, the feet can be seen momentarily protruding through the sides of the boots. This effect can be minimised by making the boots larger and wearing socks which match the boots in colour. (Relocating the boots to the foot attachment points is no help since this makes matters worse.) However,despite this drawback, the boots have a good appearance – see image 2. Another problem encountered is that the boots cannot be worn as supplied in conjunction with the jeans lower-leg attachments because both items occupy the same connection points. To get over this, I made a copy of the boots (which are fortunately provided with copy and modify permissions), and relocated this copy to the feet connection points, at the same time removing the boot uppers completely. This version of the boots can be worn with the flared jeans as in image 1.
 


The skin used here is a new one; it is the Made Men Average-Joe-5 by designer Rockwell Maltz.

Other items used in the pictures are Bootlag silver bracelet by designer Vera Leven, and Culture watch by designer Tommy Anton.

The designer of the clothing is swaffette Firefly apart from the hat which is by designer Dash Debevec. The silver cane, rose, pipe and shoes are not part of the outfit.

 


The skin used in these images is a new one: the Boötes DeAndre by designer Gavin (gavin.hird).

The shoes are SF Design laced dress shoes by swaffette Firefly. These are colour-variable shoes set here to 'brown'. See item 16 on page 1 for an image illustrating all 9 colours for these shoes.

The hairstyle is the Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Flint' by designer Bryce Tully. I have modifed the hair slightly here to remove locks which were poking through the hat.

The silver cane is from the Cattivo Thadicus Victorian Suit by designer Lissa Maertens (see item 115 on page 5). The rose (by designer BabyDream Jun) is from the Utopia Michael Mustang Moka suit (see item 118 on page 5). The pipe is the Don Reginaldo Classic Briar by designer Reginaldo Rabeni.

The PixelChap Mr. Big outfit comprises matching double-breasted jacket and waistcoat with brass buttons, and trousers in dark brown fabric, and a black shirt with silver tie. There are also supplied a pair of shoes not used in these pictures. The designer of the clothing is Nephilaine Protagonist.

The jacket can be worn without the waistcoat as in image 1 (long version) and 4 (short version). Alternatively, the waistcoat can be worn without the jacket as in image 5 (short) and 6 (long). The jacket plus waistcoat (composite item) is also supplied as in image 7 (long) and 8 (short). All the jacket/waistcoat items are on the jacket layer.

The black shirt with silver tie is available in two versions – one with shirt-collar fastened (images 4, 6 and 7), the other with shirt undone (images 1, 3, 5 and 8).

127. Number Seven (No. 07) and DreamBox menswear
 


This item features DreamBox Hustler jeans in blue, and three different Number Seven (no.07) tops which are: red shirt, red-striped Zip-Up, and Army Urban t-shirt in blue. The Number Seven clothing and the DreamBox clothing are by designer Aeon Jiminy.

The Dreambox Hustler jeans have particularly good textures. They have lower-leg attachments and also a male enhancement (bulge) which is very effective (see especially images 4 and 5).

The first Number Seven top is the red shirt shown in images 1 and 3. This has atachments for collar and rolled sleeves. The shirt is provided in two shades – bright ('as new') and distressed ('washed-out').

For images 4 and 5, PeeWee is wearing the no.07 Army Urban Tee in blue. This comes in two separate purchases which are the t-shirt itself, and the sleeve attachments. Different colours are available so the sleeves can be of a constrasting colour to the t-shirt.

For image 6, PeeWee is wearing the Number Seven Zip-Up in red-striped fabric. He retains the Urban Army Tee worn underneath the Zip-Up. The Zip-Up garment has lower sleeve attachments and also a collar assembly. The collar assembly comprises stiff turned-up collar, black collar straps, and the zip-tag at the front of the chest. The collar has modify and copy permissions which are required for adjustment of the components to suit the avatar using the 'edit linked' facility on the edit menu. The collar needs to be adjusted for size and position first, and then the zip-tag parts need to be moved to the exactly correct position at the front of the chest. In the image (number 6), the Zip-Up collar is shown without the straps.
 


The skin is a new one for PeeWee. It is the Number Seven James by designer Aeon Jiminy.

The hairstyle is the Bryce Designs Jack in 'Cappuccino' by designer Bryce Tully. The shoes are Kal Rau Street Sneakers by designer Kal Rau. These shoes are colour variable and are set to black with black laces here. The Bootlag heavy silver bracelet is by designer Vera Leven. The necklace is by BeefCake Wrigglesworth.

128. INDI Designs "Dale (b)" outfit and "O'Donnell" shoes
 


The INDI designs clothing and shoes are by designer Jamie Holmer.

The INDI Designs Dale (b) outfit comprises brown hoodie, blue t-shirt, yellow t-shirt, blue jeans, brown jeans, and black-and-white striped long-sleeved undershirt. The undershirt is not a garment which can be worn separately - it is only present worn underneath and combined with the t-shirts, so effectively just the long sleeves of the undershirt are provided. The Dale outfit is available in the store in a different colour scheme - the Dale (a) set.

The brown hoodie jacket is constructed from a base garment on the jacket layer and attachments for the hood and lower section of the garment, both of which are optional. The base garment is provided in five versions all on the jacket layer which are: jacket alone, jacket combined with t-shirt (either colour), and jacket combined with t-shirt (either colour) and striped undershirt. Image 6 shows the jacket without the lower section attachment.

The tee-shirts can be worn independently of the jacket as in images 7 and 8. Four versions are available all on the jacket layer which are: t-shirt alone (either colour) and t-shirt (either colour) combined with striped undershirt. There are optional sleeve attachments for the t-shirt (upper arm) and for the undershirt (lower arm). Image 5 illustrates the yellow t-shirt with undershirt, but without any sleeve attachments.

The brown jeans can best be seen in image 4. There are lower-leg attachments for both brown and blue jeans.

The Indi Designs O'Donnell shoes by designer Jamie Holmer were bought as a separate purchase. They are available in several colours, PeeWee's pair being in 'warm beige'.
 


The hat worn by PeeWee is the SF Design Greek Fisherman's Hat by designer swaffette Firefly. This was first featured in item 94 on page 4 which includes a close-up of the hat. The hat comes with combined hair (3 colours) and in a version without hair.

In images 7 and 8, the hat is removed and PeeWee is shown with the H&H Daniel hairstyle in 'Ceniza' by designer Nuri Rau. The hair comes in 8 colours which can all be seen in composite image 9. The colours are:

      top row: 'Black', 'Black Night', 'Blonde', 'Brown'
      bottom row: 'Ceniza', 'Cocoa', 'Dark Brown', 'Red'.

129. Atelier Bonetto "Desert" outfit
 


The Atelier Bonetto Desert outfit comprises jacket, shirt, trousers and shoes, all by designer Pidria Bonetto. The jacket appears to be knitted and has a collar attachment. The shirt is grey/green and can be worn separately from the jacket (see image 6 to 10). The trousers have lower leg attachments. The shoes are of pale calfskin with brown laces.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one not yet seen. It is the IC-skins Celebrities: Matt Damon. By designer Ina Centaur. Provided in the pack with this skin is the matching Matt Damon shape. See image 8 for Matt Damon shape and skin together. (All other images have the PeeWee shape. For an explanation of the PeeWee shape see item 61 via my SL menu link at the top of this page.)

The hat is the Meriken Co straw hat in 'natural' by designer Yaszi Mornington. The hair under the hat is SF Design 'hair for hats' by designer swaffette Firefly. The hair in images 8 and 9 is the integral hair which comes with the skin. The hair in image 10 is the Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Terra' by designer Bryce Tully. The spectacles are Alphavillain Dharma by designer Laika Saintlouis. The Culture watch with brown leather strap is by designer Tommy Anton. The smokes are by designer FeelGood Tripp.

131. SF Design corduroy set in Walnut
 


This clothing set by SF Design comprises corduroy jacket and trousers, brown chequer shirt, and long-sleeved and sleeveless knitted pullovers. The design is excellent and very flexible in wear. The garments are provided on all layers so there are many different ways in which they can be worn. Many of the items in the set are provided in versions with or without resizer menu, those without resizer having modify permission allowing manual adjustment. The designer of the clothing is swaffette Firefly.

The SF Design Check-it-Out brown chequer shirt is supplied on the undershirt, shirt and jacket layers, with lower sections on the underpants and pants layer. There are four tie options with the collar/tie attachment which are short-tucked (for use with the pullover), long-tucked (for the jacket), flexi-tie, and bow-tie. There are also cuff prim attachments.

The SF Design Isle-Knitted pullover can be worn with long sleeves or sleeveless, and is supplied on the shirt and jacket layers with lower sections on the underpants or pants layers. There are lower sleeve attachments for the long-sleeved pullover version.

The SF Design walnut corduroy trousers are provided on the pants and underpants layers, the latter for tucking into boots. There are lower leg attachments for the pants-layer version.

The SF Design walnut corduroy jacket has collar attachment, lower arm attchments, and also flared lower section in two versions – low-fit (images 4 and 5) and high-fit (image 8).

All clothing is by swaffette Firefly.

132. Reborn jeans and t-shirt. Black Label Menswear pullover. MESH
 


These are the first MESH clothing items that PeeWee has worn. MESH clothing works differently from ordinary clothing. Ordinary clothing fits on layers on the body of the avatar like a second skin. With ordinary clothing there may be additional prim or sculptie parts such as rolled cuffs and collars, flexi jacket skirts, or groin bulges.

MESH items have their own shape which fits outside the avatar and articulates separately - like a suit of armour. Because MESH items are shaped differently from the avatar body, there can be a conflict where areas of the avatar skin poke through the MESH garment here and there as the avatar moves. To get over this, the "Alpha layer" has been invented. Supplied with each MESH garment is an Alpha layer item which, when worn, renders parts of the avatar skin invisible. This means it cannot be seen if it pokes through the MESH garment worn over it.

The important thing about MESH is that as you put on the items you have to right click each item on the inventory and then click "add" rather than "wear". In this way you can build up the outfit. If you click "wear" (instead of "add") then the item replaces one already worn rather than adding to the outfit.

I have used three MESH items here which are jeans and t-shirt by Reborn, and pullover by Black Label Menswear (BLM). The advantage of MESH is that the items appear to have more bulk and a better 3-D appearance than ordinary clothing avoiding the need for prim and sculptie attachments. However, I have found difficulties with conflict where two MESH items clash at the waist, which may be because I haven't got used to using them yet, or because the clashing items come from different designers. The MESH garments are provided in two or three size versions so the best match for the avatar can be chosen. The garments are not resizeable.

In the main picture, PeeWee is wearing the Reborn Eternity [MESH] t-shirt in pink by designer Gaston Nouvelle. In the pack there are two versions of the t-shirt, one with the bottom flipped up a bit showing the trousers crotch (as shown here), the other with the bottom pulled down all the way round. Each version is supplied in 3 sizes. The trousers are Reborn jeans in 'Terracota'. These come in high and low waist versions and in 2 sizes.

In images 3 to 6, PeeWee is wearing the Black Label Menswear (BLM) two-tone [MESH] brown pullover by designer Charity Steampunk. This is supplied in 2 sizes. It has a very good texture and appears to have good 'bulk'. I had a bit of difficulty combining it the the Reborn jeans. I had to select the small pullover and the large trousers so that the pullover was tucked inside the jeans. Trying it the other way (large pullover worn outside the smaller jeans) did not work, one garment cutting into the other at the waist.

In image 6, PeeWee is wearing a different pair of trousers (non-MESH) with the pullover (large version) now outside the trouser waistband. This shows off the pullover at its best.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one. It is the Pulse Life skin age 30s with black anchor by designer Lorac Farella.

The hairstyle is the Cabelo Renegade in 'Chocolate' (designer not recorded in 'properties'). The spectacles are Alphavillain Dharma by designer Laika Saintlouis. The boots are the Cattivo Stomper Engineer boots in brown by designer Lissa Maertens.

133. Garish "la battaglia" suit in grey. MESH
 


This is a very different experience from normal (non-MESH) clothing.

The suit comprises jacket and trousers in well-defined fabric, black and white chequer shirt (showing at the collar and cuffs), and blue tie. The suit is combined in one single MESH item. The components of the suit cannot be worn separately. Provided with suit is a full-body Alpha layer invisiblity cloak which prevents body parts poking through (see previous item – 132 – for a brief explanation). The Alpha layer provided covers upper and lower body. The suit item itself is provided in two sizes – Medium and Large. The one used here is Medium which best suits the PeeWee avatar, but either one can be worn.

The clothing moves very well as the avatar articulates. The appearance is a little more 'cartoony' than regular clothing, but very pleasing. One does not have the fun of building up the outfit by combining a number of items, but on the other hand, there are no problems with adjustment of attachments or conflict between items. Putting the suit on only takes a second.

The designer of the suit is Nicky Cavalieri.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one. It is the Elegant Mature Herbert (shade 'Tan') by designer Hideo Ying.

The shoes are SF Design Brogues set to colour grey by designer swaffette Firefly. See item 16 on page 1 for a picture showing all six shades which this shoe can be set to. The hairstyle is Bryce Designs Hinder in 'Vapor' by designer Bryce Tully.

The poses in the pictures were achieved using the Gaeline Animations Cool Boy III animation overrider by designer Gael Streeter.

134. Hoorenbeek "Classic" jeans and "Military" shirt. MESH
 


This is the third item featuring clothing designed using the MESH system. See items 132 and 133 for a short introduction to MESH from the lay perspective. The Classic jeans and Military shirt (bought as separate purchases at Hoorenbeek) are both available in several colours at the store. In these pictures, the jeans are are in 'Indigo' and the shirt is in 'Olive'. The jeans are by LimerDesigner Flux. The shirt is by LimerDesigner Limonaxit.

The Hoorenbeek Military shirt in 'Olive' is provided in five styles which are: tucked (lowrise and highrise versions), semi-tucked partial shirt (lowrise and highrise versions), and untucked. The semi-tucked version only has the collar plus a strip of shirt front constructed, and is for use with Hoorenbeek jackets. It is not illustrated here. The tucked version of the shirt is used in the pictures here.

There are separate upper-body Alpha layer items for tucked and untucked shirts (see item 132 for Alpha layer).

Each style of shirt is provided in 3 sizes: Large, Medium and Small, so there are actually 15 different shirts in the pack (5 x 3 = 15). Note that MESH garments cannot be altered by the user in size or position on the avatar as were attachments in the old system. There is a note in the shop which says that even though their garments are provided in 3 sizes they cannot guarantee that the clothes will fit every avatar without some adjustment to the avatar body shape being necessary. I found that the best match for PeeWee's shape (especially his height and headsize) was the Medium shirt which worked perfectly with the Medium jeans.

The Hoorenbeek Classic jeans in 'Indigo' are provided in lowrise and highrise versions, and with or without integral black belt. As with the shirt, the jeans are provided in 3 sizes: Large, Medium and Small, so there are 12 different jeans in the pack (2 x 2 x 3 = 12). Separate lower-body Alpha layer items for lowrise and highrise are provided with the jeans. Separate belts are provided for use (optionally) with the beltless versions of the jeans. There are two belt colours (black and brown), two buckle colours (gold and silver), and three sizes (S, M, L) – twelve belts altogether. In the pictures, PeeWee is wearing the Medium jeans with the addition of the separate belt in Brown/Gold.

The startling thing about the clothing is the way that the fabric of the jeans appears to be almost continuous and to stretch over bulges as the avatar articulates. This is in marked contrast to normal clothing constructed on layers where if you look too closely you can see component plates of fabric sliding around and overlapping one another. The improvement is particularly noticeable when observing the groin and buttock area when using an animation overrider.
 


PeeWee's shoes are Kal Rau Street Sneekers by designer Kal Rau. They can be set to a number of colour combinations (see item 106 on page 5 for more colours). The hairstyle is Paddy's GuyCandy in 'Umber' by designer Paddy Carter (see item 100 on page 5 for all 16 colours of this hair).The pipe is Don Reginaldo's Old Wood Billard by Reginaldo Rabeni. The Culture dress watch with brown leather strap is by designer Tommy Anton.

135. Kauna navy blazer and Redgrave "Miles" sneakers. MESH
 


The MESH Kauna blazer in 'Navy' is by designer Ross Myhre. The blazer comes in 3 sizes (S, M, L) and is provided with the Alpha layer item matching the garment for the upper body. The Medium size suited PeeWee perfectly. The Small one glitched at the bottom, and the Large one looked too big for PeeWee's height and headsize.

The trousers PeeWee is wearing are the MESH Hoorenbeek Classic jeans in 'Indigo' (designer LimerDesigner Flux). These were dealt with in the previous item (no. 134 above) so I will not add anything here, except to say that the trousers are excellent.

In the photographs, I have combined the Kauna jacket with five different (non-MESH) tops worn underneath. In images 1 and 3, PeeWee is wearing the Musashi-Do Infinitie system of shirts and ties (designer Shiryu Musashi) which I described in some detail in items 102 and 103 on page 5. Here, PeeWee has the shirt in 'Khaki' with the flexi-tie set to red/blue stripes.

In image 4, worn under the blazer is the Hoorenbeek Polo shirt in 'Sand' (by designer Limer Fredriksson) which I described in item 111 on page 5. The shirt is worn here with the upturned or 'popped' version of the shirt collar. The other two collar styles available with this shirt cannot be combined with the Kauna blazer beause of conflict at the blazer collar.

In image 5, I have borrowed the white shirt and thin red tie from the SLC Elegance suit by designer Serina Lacava. In image 6, the white shirt and green tie combination is from the Shai Alfonso suit in 'Olive' by designer Shai Delacroix. Finally, in image 7, PeeWee is wearing the SG Dendi tank top in 'Khaki' by designer Sasha Gopheller.
 


The MESH shoes are Redgrave Miles sneakers in 'Classic' shades (designer TeamRedgrave). This is the first MESH shoes PeeWee has had. The shoes are quite dirty and very realistic. They are provided with their own Alpha layer item.

The hairstyle is from the Sirena Corporate browns range in the shade 'Sandy' by designer Natalia Zelmanov.

136. Black Label Menswear "System-M" suit [MESH]. Sirena "Cody" hair.
 


The Black Label Menswear (BLM) SystemM suit [MESH] shown here in 'Tan' is by designer Charity Steampunk. The suit is available in twelve colours at the store. Provided in the suit pack are suit jacket, suit trousers, white shirt and red tie, plus a single Alpha layer item covering upper and lower body. See image 4 for the suit as provided.

In addition to the suit pack, I bought for PeeWee two further shirts (in 'Pumpkin' and 'Dark Brown') and two further ties (in 'Orange' and 'Tan'). There are 12 coloured shirts and 38 coloured ties available at the store for purchase separately. An enormous number of colour combinations are possible in wear, especially since contrasting suit jacket and trousers could be worn if a second suit pack is purchased. See image 5 for a composite picture showing the 9 combinations possible with PeeWee's clothing. The 'Pumpkin' shirt appears in images 1 and 3, and the 'Orange' tie in images 1, 3 and 6. Different lighting condition have been used in the pictures which is why the shades appear differently in different images. The shirts are only partly constructed (collar, front seam, and cuff hems) so they cannot be worn without a jacket over them.

All the SystemM items are provided in two sizes – Large and Small. Images 1 to 5 employ the Small versions. In image 6 the two different versions are shown side-by-side.

The Black Label Menswear (BLM) SystemM suit is quite similar in appearance to the Garish suit shown in item 133 above, the main difference being that the Garish suit is a single-piece item the components of which (jacket, trousers, shirt and tie) cannot be interchanged.

The Sirena Cody hairstyle which PeeWee is wearing is by designer Natalia Zelmanov. I bought the 'Blondes' pack, but the same hair is available in other colour packs at the store. There are four colours in the pack – 'Golden', 'Pearl', 'Seashell' and 'Strawberry' – and three sizes for each colour. I found it possible to move and stretch the hair even though it is recorded as 'no modify' in the inventory. The appearance of the hair can be altered via a menu. The options are wet or dry, with the wet version having optional falling water droplets. The wet appearance also comes on automatically if the avatar enters water. After being wet the hair returns to dry after a period of time, the length of which can be set by the menu. Excellent hair – highly recommended. See image 7 for the four 'Blonde' shades in dry and wet versions.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one. It is the PK Giovanni by designer Psycho Kondor. The skin is provided in two bearded versions as well as the cleanshaven version used here.

The shoes are Jeepers Creepers Scratch shoes in 'Sand' by designer Eponymous Trenchmouth.

137. Hoorenbeek pinstriped suit in brown and black. MESH
 


The suit comprises jacket, waistcoat, and trousers in brown fabric with black pinstripe, optional brown or black belts, and white shirt combined with tie. The tie is colour variable via a HUD. The suit breast pocket handerchief can be varied to match the tie colour using a second HUD. All the clothing is MESH, and the parts are all present in three sizes: S, M and L. The cothing can be worn in a number of ways which are listed below. There is a large number of items in the pack most of the which have no designer recorded in the properties tab, but a few have LimerDesigner Flux or Limer Fredriksson entered. The suit is has a very good appearance, is flexible in wear, and is very good value.

The suit can be worn in seven different ways (leaving aside the variations of size, the colours of the tie, and the presence/absence of a belt). The seven ways are:

Jacket open, no waistcoat, formal shirt collar and tie (images 1-3).
Jacket open, with waistcoat, formal shirt collar and tie (image 4).
Jacket open, no waistcoat, collar open and tie loose (image 5).
Jacket open, with waistcoat, collar open and tie loose (image 6).
Jacket closed, no waistcoat, formal shirt collar and tie (image 7).
Shirt only, tucked, sleeves rolled, collar open and tie loose (images 8-9).
Shirt only, untucked, sleeves rolled, collar open and tie loose (image 10).

The waistcoat cannot be worn without the jacket because the waistcoat is only partially constructed. Shirt cuffs are provided for use with the jacket, but the shirt itself is not provided with long sleeves. The nine tie colours can be seen in image 11.
 


PeeWee's hairstyle is the Sirena Cody in 'Seashell' by designer Natalia Zelmanov. See item 136 above for more details on this excellent hair.

The shoes are the Hoorenbeek Allen shoes in 'Tan' by designer Limer Fredriksson. These shoes were first described in item 111 on page 5.

138. IceHouse "Chicoh" jeans and dress shirts. MESH
 


The Icehouse Chico jeans are by designer Yakumax, and the IceHouse dress shirts are by designer Typhaon Nishi. The clothing items are provided with matching Alpha layer components.

The Chico jeans shown here are in the shade 'Light Black'. They are available in several other shades at the store. They are provided in five sizes: (XS, S, M, L and XL) and in versions with and without belt. When wearing the dress shirt the trouser waistband cannot be seen, so I have taken some pictures without the shirt to show the waistband. In images 4 and 5, the jeans without belt can be seen, while image 6 shows the jeans with belt. In images 7 and 8, I have combined the jeans with a non-mesh shirt to show how the jeans look.

The dress shirts are provided in four sizes numbered 1 to 4. The five shirts are identically constructed, only differing in colour and pattern. The five shirts are:

White with black floral pattern (images 1 and 3).
Black with bold red stripe and white dragon motif (image 9).
Black with white floral pattern (image 10).
Plain black (image 11).
Black with white collar and cuffs and fine red/white stripes (image 12).
 


PeeWee's hairstyle is the Bryce Designs Markey in 'Tuxedo' by designer Bryce Tully. The spectacles are Alphavillain Dharma by designer Laika Saintlouis. The shoes are Redgrave Miles in 'Classic' by designers TeamRedgrave. These MESH shoes were first featured in item 135 above.

The shirt (non-mesh) worn in images 7 and 8 is the Armidi Gisachi Cambridge in 'Aufren White' by designers London Armidi and Hudsen Armidi. This shirt first appeared in item 27 on page 2. The underpants visible in images 4, 5 and 6 are SEB boxers by designer Mick Lukas.

139. AEC "Evolution" suit. MESH
 


The suit is by designer Damien Fate (tie by designer iOthman). The suit plus shirt is a one-piece object with a single Alpha layer item covering upper and lower body. The tie is a separate item. The black snakeskin-effect shoes are part of the suit. I don't think the tie or the shoes are mesh.

I found it necessary to do some adjustment to get the tie to fit correctly. It was quite difficult to get the knot of the tie snuggly under the shirt collar while having the bottom point of it aligned exactly in the 'V' of the waistcoat which is just visible under jacket. I had to do move, rotate and stretch to achieve a perfect fit.

The suit is provided in two versions for 'Average' and 'Muscular' builds. Most of the pictures here use the 'Average' build version. See image 4 for both versions side-by-side.
 


The skin is a new one – the PK Giovanni bearded-2 by designer Psycho Kondor. The cleanshaven version of this skin has already been featured in items 136 and 137 above. (Note: in the Giovanni skin pack there are 3 skins – cleanshaven, bearded-1 and bearded-2. The bearded-2 version item is actually called Giuseppe in the pack rather than Giovanni but I think this is probably a mistake since the skin appears to be identical to the other two versions except with a fuller beard.)

The hair is the Sirena Cody in 'Chestnut' from the 'Browns' range of this excellent hair by Natalia Zelmanov. The 'Blondes' range of this hair has already been described and illustrated in item 136 above. The four colours in the 'Browns' pack are: 'Chestnut', 'Chocolate', 'Cinnamon' and 'Sandy'. All four can be seen in both dry and wet verions in composite image 7.

PeeWee's pipe is the Don Reginaldo Old Wood Billard by designer Reginaldo Rabeni. The spectacles are Machienenwerk Jagu (designer not recorded).

140. Hoorenbeek fashion kit - part 1: Trenchcoat. MESH
 


This fashion kit from Hoorenbeek comprises five separate clothing packs and was very good value. The five packs are: Trenchcoat pack, Brown corduroy jacket pack, Leather jacket, Classic jeans in 'Ocean', and Sweater/shirt combo pack. Extra shirts and turtlenecks for wearing under the main garments are included in the packs. All items are MESH with Alpha layer items provided, and all are in three sizes: S, M, L. The designers of this excellent clothing are recorded as LimerDesigner Flux and LimerDesigner Limonaxit.

Included in the trenchcoat pack are two versions of the coat: 'collar down' and 'collar up'. The 'collar down' version is used in the images here apart from image 7. Also in the pack are provided three coloured shirts all with red tie. They are black, light blue, and white. See image 6 for all three together. Also provided are four turtleneck sweater options: beige, black, brown and grey. See image 7 for these. The shirts and turtlenecks cannot be worn as separate garments because only the collar and front part are constructed.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one, the Aeros Cassius by designer Pi Rain. This skin is provided in three skintones: 'Chocolate', 'Cinnamon', 'Nutmeg', and in versions with/without bodyhair. Also three beard pieces are provided: 'Chin curtain', 'Chin beard' and 'Shady Angle', which can be added singly or in combination layered over one another. The pictures here employ the 'Cinnamon' skintone with all three beard pieces in place. The lighting conditions in images 1 to 5 are 'Fluffy Big Clouds'. Images 6 to 8 are in the more neutral lighting '3-PM'. Skin tones can appear very differently according to the lighting employed.

PeeWee's hairstyle is the Sirena Cody in 'Copper' from the 'Reds' range by Natalia Zelmanov. We have already seen the same hair in 'Blondes' (item 136) and in 'Browns' (item 139). The four colours in the 'Reds' range are 'Auburn', 'Copper', 'Coral' and 'Scarlet'. All four colours in both wet and dry versions can be seen in composite image 5.

The MESH shoes are Redgrave Miles sneakers in 'Classic' shades (designer TeamRedgrave) which were first seen in item 135 above.

141. Hoorenbeek fashion kit - part 2: Sweater set, corduroy jacket, leather jacket, and jeans. MESH
 


This item follows on from the previous one which focused on the Hoorenbeek Trenchcoat. Here we are looking at the remaining four garments in the fashion pack which are: Sweater/shirt combo, brown corduroy jacket, black leather jacket, and Classic jeans in 'Ocean'. All items are MESH with Alpha layer items provided, and all are in three sizes: S, M, L. The designers of this excellent clothing are recorded as LimerDesigner Flux and LimerDesigner Limonaxit.

The Hoorenbeek Classic jeans have already been described in an earlier item (no.134 above) where the shade featured was 'Indigo'. In the current item the shade is 'Ocean'. I will not add anything here except to say that the jeans are excellent.

The Hoorenbeek sweater/shirt combination item is featured in most of the images here. The sweater is described as brown in the inventory, although to me it looks pale grey under neutral lighting (see image 8). Anyway, it is had a very good appearance. In the first three images the sweater/shirt is worn with nothing over the top of it, but versions are provided enabling it to be worn with Hoorenbeek jackets over the top as in images 6, 8 and 9. The sweater can be worn with the front hooked up over the jeans belt buckle as in images 1 and 4, or long as in image 5. The attention to detail is very good with Hoorenbeek stuff and everything works without glitches on my avatar.

In image 6 can be seen the Hoorenbeek corduroy jacket in brown from the fashion pack worn over the sweater combo. I think this makes a really good casual clothing set. The jacket is very similar to the non-mesh beige one featured in item 111 on page 5. Supplied with the MESH jacket are three shirts for wearing underneath. They are in white, light blue and black and be seen in composite image 7. The shirts have one "tail" out at the front and are provided in versions to suit lowrise as well as the highrise jeans used here.

The last garment in the fashion pack is the Hoorenbeek black leather jacket which can be seen in differing lighting conditions in images 8 and 9 worn over the sweater/shirt combo.
 


PeeWee's skin is a new one, the Ruby Jason. The skin is provided in 6 different beard options, the one used here being with moustache only.

PeeWee's hairstyle is the Sirena Cody in 'Sandy' from the 'Browns' range by Natalia Zelmanov. See items 136, 139 and 140 for more images of this excellent hair. The MESH shoes are Redgrave Miles sneakers in 'Classic' shades (designer TeamRedgrave) which were first seen in item 135 above. The spectacles are Maschienenwerk U.S. Army 1968 (designer not recorded). The pipe is the Don Reginaldo Old Wood Billard by designer Reginaldo Rabeni.
