Firenze Blues
Picture uploaded by Abriael
The Menswear Fashion week opens today and it's time for a new suit release. Firenze Blues is your perfect Business suit, featuring a modern notched lapel/two vents style. The wrapping cut, almost resembling a double breasted suit, conveys height, elegance and strength, paired with the dark blue color to give a dashing and classy look.

As standard for the newest Musashi-Do suits, it includes 10 shirts (6 in solid colors and 4 pinstriped), and 10 tie designs. If the flexibility allowed by all that isn't enough, the suit is of course fully compatible with the InfiniTie system for an awesome degree of variation. If you still don't know what the InfiniTie System is, you can check this youtube video for an explanation.

Firenze Blues ties

In the package you will also find the Musashi-Do control HUD that will allow you to easily change the texture of the collars and of the ties, and to adapt the prims to your body without needing to do so manually.

The Collar, lapels, tie, jacket cuffs and trouser cuffs are made with sculpted prims.

Firenze Blues is available for 499 L$ at the Musashi-Do Flagship store, or on Xstreet SL and it's No Copy/Modify/Transfer. Don't miss it :D

New Release: Holidays in Cortina

Holidays in Cortina
Picture uploaded by Abriael
New year's eve is just around the corner and a dashing Tuxedo is always a good choice for menswear at an upscale party. The only problem with that is that almost everyone will be wearing a black tuxedo. That's where an high-quality Ivory tuxedo comes in.

The Holidays in Cortina (Cortina is Italy's Aspen, or better, Aspen is America's Cortina :P) tuxedo features a classic peaked lapel paired with a trendy two vent style, perfect for formal parties. The striking ivory color makes it especially suitable for dinners and weddings, or any other upscale occasion in which a gentleman would want to stand out in the crowd. The hand-painted textures of the embroidered waistcoat add a refined touch of color to the ensemble.

This tux is characterized by an extensive use of sculpted prims (jacket cuffs, shirt cuffs, trouser cuffs, lapel, collar, bowtie and jacket bottom) and includes ten waistcoats of different colors and the usual advanced Mudashi-Do hud to resize and fit the prims and to change the ten colors of the bowtie. You can also wear the tuxedo without the jacket to showoff the rich embroidery of the waistcoats and the detail of the shirt, complimented by additional sculpted cuffs.

Holdiays in Cortina Bowties and Vests

The massive freedom in color variation allows you to match the tuxedo to your mood or to the gown of your date effortlessly.

It's available as usual at the Musashi-Do Flagship Store and on Xstreet. Don't miss it :D

As a final style hint, you can easily mix and match the jacket and trousers of this tuxedo with the black ones from Party in Venezia, for a perfect Dinner Jacket style :D

New Release: InfiniTie Shirts, now for Ladies!

The InfiniTie system has already started revolutioning menswear (if you don't know what InfiniTie is yet, you can see a movie explaining it on Youtube), but what about ladies? A lady can definitely wear ties, and be sexy with them.

To finally make the InfiniTie system fully available to women in Second Life, we just released the InfiniTie Shirts for Ladies, in three sets: Classic, Trendy, and Christmas edition.
They all come in three variations, Untucked (on the jacket layer), Tucked and Bare Midriff (on the short layer) and include sculpted cuffs and collars and a flexi tie, with a sleek black Jacquard texture.

The Christmas edition also includes two exclusive festive (but classy) InfiniTies in matching green and red.

You can find all three sets at the Musashi-Do Flagship Store and on Xstreet (Classic, Trendy or Christmas). The classic and the trendy sets are priced 499 L$, while the Christmas set is priced 259 L$.
You can also find separate shirts from the Classic and Trendy sets for 129 L$ each at the Musashi-Do Flagship Store.

Of course, to fully enjoy the incredible variation offered by the InfiniTie system you can buy separate InfiniTies at the Musashi-Do Flagship Store for as few as 29 L$ each. Look in the meanswear area (even if we'll have dedicated InfiniTies with a more feminine slant soon, stay tuned for them!).
