There’s a lot of (unnecessary) hipster-hate out there these days but if there’s one thing I personally congratulate that crowd for it’s the fact that they’ve (well, some of them) have brought the concept of dressing well back into the mainstream. These days we don’t do a double take if we see a man sporting an exemplary beard and wearing a three piece suit, and that’s precisely how it should be if you ask me. It’s nice to dress well, something that is being remembered and definitely reflected in mainstream fashion, and I’m pleased to see it echoed in Second Life too. There are in fact a LOT of hipsters in-world; it seems to attract them and you’ll find them in their natural habitat, aka THE MENS DEPT, in droves. It’s a great place for (virtual) people watching but you’re always guaranteed to find something pretty special to wear too. This month it’s the APHORISM ‘Cassady’ suit collection that pushes all Jez’s buttons, and it’s not hard to see why. The Suit comes in 6 colours, Black, Charcoal, Grey, Pale Grey, Blue and Brown. The Jacket comes with 7 Tie, 5 Waistcoat & 4 Shirt options, trousers and jacket sold separately. It looks superb. The textures that have been chosen by designer Rucy Byron are perfect for a suit of this nature; it feels traditional for sure but it has an edge that means you can sport your man-bun, tattoos and septum piercings with this suit and look elegant and dapper.
