What goes around, comes around.

Once again, let’s take a look at two pieces from AOHARU’s mens’ line.

Hair: Gritty Kitty- Ghost – Licorice

Shirt: AOHARU – Spring Shirt – White

Gloves: Sinjun Soyer

Ink: CB Dragon’s Fury full

Piercings: TSS

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, it’s damn hard to find mens’ clothing that actually fits. Maybe it’s just me. The sleeves are often too small or the jeans cuffs too small and the result is me swearing at the screen for a full hour, while I try to make them fit. I’ve never had that problem with anything Machang has made with AOHARU. It looks smooth, fits perfectly and I never have to message her with questions.

Jacket: AOHARU Snake Leather Jacket

Location for both shots: Crush Row on the Doll City sim

I’m picky about jackets, particularly leather jackets. The wrong ones look like throwbacks from a cheap bikerploitation flick and the right ones look just like this. It’s fit for a road trip, a party, a club event or just about anything that you can imagine. I appreciate the detail Machang puts into her textures. The snake skin is subtle and not cheesy, where it looks like she peeled a snake and took a photo of it. I’m allowed to be a little morbid. Halloween’s coming up. I give both the shirt and the jacket two thumbs up. If The Fonz went to Fashion Week, he’d wear this jacket and be the coolest mofo there.

The thing that I dig the most from Machang Pinchot’s guys’ clothing is her attention to detail. She understands the male shape more than some designers. For instance, how many times have you put on a shirt or pants with prim attachments and the attachable sleeves were six sizes too small and you had to stretch them or resize them yourself? It makes me wonder if some designers use midgets for sizing on their gear for guys. It’s actually become a pet peeve of mine. That and really short shirts. I’m not a designer and I will never claim to be, but one thing that I do know is that when designing mens’ gear, you should keep in mind that we come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors and preferences. Some guys dig tight pants, while some (like me) prefer them loose with room to move. If you’re going to add a prim collar or sleeves, keep in mind that we aren’t all the same size. I had that slight problem with Gritty Kitty’s Chutte Pants. It took me an hour or so to stretch the pants cuffs out enough that they fit right and by the time I finished, I didn’t want to look at them, due to frustration.

I try very hard to not practice nepatism. It’s another pet peeve of mine when someone gives friends preferential treatment based on friendship alone and not actions or talents. Machang is a friend of mine, but that’s not why I’m blogging her gear. Look at them in the photos. They are REALLY good, high quality shirts! No nepatism necessary to see that.
