“Clearing out the wardrobe” is my blog series in which I randomly pick an old outfit from my much too long list and swap out anything that is too outdated with something more recent. For this episode I stumbled across the TMP Deluxe mesh body wearing the very low rise Paolo Jeans by Not So Bad. Back then these jeans were one of the very few options I had that could be worn with a pair of briefs. Truth be told, the jeans weren’t perfectly rigged for TMP, even though they did include a TMP size. As the legs needed to show partly through the rips, I couldn’t take full advantage of the body’s alpha hud and the inner thigh kept glitching through the jeans as I walked. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
For the new look I switched to the Legacy mesh body and a Lelutka mesh head, currently a very popular combination. The newer option for ripped low rise jeans we are looking at is far less extreme than the old one, but the Casual Jeans by Kalback come with a pair of briefs which can be left off or replaced by something like the Tom thong by Noche (bulge size 0), which is the point of this particular exercise. I have searched Marketplace thoroughly and went to several stores and was not able to find high quality, extremely low rising, loose fitting ripped jeans anywhere. At this point I should also warn you that often it’s only possible to visibly wear a thong under a pair of jeans with the Legacy mesh body. For some reason it doesn’t always work with for example the Belleza Jake body.
It’s fun to save different versions of a look by removing some items, allowing me to easily slip into something a little bit more comfortable with the click of a button, when I come home from some Second Life™ exploring. Speaking of exploring, I made a last-minute visite to the Legacy Spring Fair because I spotted a nice pair of sleazy low rise jeans with a built-in jockstrap in someone’s Flickr stream and saw that it was available at this particular fair. Oy vey! It is a massive fair. I applaud the organisers for creating a elaborately decorated and landscaped sim, but it definitely wasn’t very well suit for a quick look around. I think I’ll leave grabbing those jeans for when their up at the creator’s store. It’s always good to have something to look forward too.
