Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication


When I first decided to blog more seriously as a boy in this space, I hung out with a few actual boys and began to slowly soak up their style. I admit that I never paid attention to what men wore in SL before this -- it seemed unnecessary. Besides, wasn't male adornment simply jeans and a t-shirt and maybe a bracelet? I was very wrong. There are all kinds of subtle details of outfit that I didn't really think about, like finger tape, the right tattoo, the right facial piercing, maybe a good belt or a watch, definitely a hat. It was a learning process, and I have to thank those folks for helping guide my boy's style. Hence this week's homage, in honor of the guy who inspired my boy avatar to own more underpants than my girl. Lol.

I stole my shirt right off of Tact Arida's back (he's so cute!). The too-tight So Many Styles pants are in honor of severine Morrisey, who is always making me question whether he's gay or European :D. And the hair is the final hair in this week of homage, Gritty Kitty's DaVinci Reloaded. It defines a moment in style, I think, for that perfect "I don't give a shit about my hair, that's why I'm going to put on this hat and look fabulous" look. (SLURL to Gritty Kitty)
