I love men’s fashion, more than women’s fashion. What I love about Neiman Marcus, Saks, Barney’s, and Bloomingdales in downtown San Francisco, is that while their women’s departments are cluttered with clothing, they treat their men’s departments like a fashion spread. These are seriously some of the best dressed mannequins in the world, and I could look at them all day.
I sort of feel second life is similar in that respect. There are dozens of events geared towards women, and it’s hard to keep up. And it’s truly hit or miss when it comes to them. And then there’s The Men’s Dept. For two years, TMD has managed to bring together the best menswear designers.
Besides the fashion, The Men’s Dept also has masculine furnishings, like this telephone booth couch by junk. I do believe SL lacks that as well. And as a side note, I don’t think my male avatar will wear anything other than Kooqla skins.
But there are also things for women. A lot of the designers will include female sizes. I’m pretty crazy over these oxfords, by Eudora 3D.
And while this isn’t from The Men’s Dept, I had to plug Soothe. for making this amazing jacket for The Chapter Four. It’s totally 70s inspired, and beautiful. There is a HUD to change the shirt and/or tie.
