The seasons may be less restrictive in SL, but I would never say that they aren’t relevant.Â Even though we don’t have to worry about the weather, for me at least it’s still enjoyable and even meaningful to follow the cycle of seasons.Â Masaru Raymaker knows this, I think.Â The new Sporty Fleece Jackets atÂ M.R.M. Factory are evidence.
Before I move on to all the logistical details, let me just point out the quality of the fleece fabric texture.Â Look at the ribbing at the cuffs and waist, the slight pucker of the covered zipper in front, and those slash pockets–they look like you could slip your hands right inside for warmth.Â This isÂ beautiful work, and no less so for being “just” a jacket.
The careful detailing extends to the back of the jacket, too, as you see here–and you know what a sucker I am for clothing with something on the back for me to look at.Â The jacket comes on all clothing layers (jacket, shirt, undershirt, underwear extension), so you can wear it tucked or untucked, and layered with your own shirts.Â Seven different colors are available; Olive Green is shown here.Â You also get sculpted collar and cuffs and two sets of prim arm patches.Â The collar is turned upÂ against the growing chill in the weather, so some longer hairstyles may poke through slightly, as mine did; it’s a small price to pay.Â The cuffsÂ and collar are textured with stretchy ribbed fabric, and they’re easy to fit realistically close and snug.Â They’re also touch scripted for fabric color change (the same seven colors in which the jacket is available).Â Even if you buy the jacket in just one color, you can still create different looksÂ by changing the color of these trim items.
In addition to the back artwork, you’ll notice a couple of patches on the chest.Â These are nice and all, butÂ the real fun lies in the two sets of prim “arm patches.”Â Each set includes two patches, one for each arm.Â The round patches shown here are scripted to let you choose from several different designs by touch.Â The other set is, if anything, even more fun–the patches are shaped like highway signs, and you can customize them via touch scripting to display any two-character (letters or numerals) combination.Â These are easy to figure out with no instruction, but helpful info notecards are included, just in case.Â The artwork on the prim patches has a good level of detail, so much so in fact that the clothing-layer artworkÂ looks not quite as sharp in comparison.Â This should in no way detract from your or anyone’s enjoyment of the jacket.Â All prim components are moddable, but also included in male and female versions for ease in fitting.
