From another Japanese dystopia, here’s a fine jacket bristling with prim add-ons. It’s by mk Curtiz and it’s called the S.I.C Staff Jacket. S.I.C apparently stands for Science Innovation Company. But it will also serve to remind you of the name of the sim, “sick.”
The jacket is available in three colours, dark green, grey and red. Allthough I love the dark ones, the prim attachments will show up better against a red background, so let me take you on a guided tour of that version of this complex piece of clothing.
The jacket itself without the prims is a shirt-level garment and not very remarkable. It does have a nice off-centre flap over what I presume would be a zip. Over that flap are three fashionable strap snap fasteners. Over the breast is a line of text that says SIC.49. The whole of the texture of this piece is not really as high a resolution as you’d expect, but more than adequate if you’re not doing close-ups.
It’s the prim attachments that turn this into something special. The first goes around the neck. As well as continuing the cloth part of the shirt to a high turtleneck, it contains some very high tech equipment. I confess I don’t know what it does, but there are knobs and lights with twirling red bits showing… I’m scared to touch it lest something somewhere explodes. The neck also contains two very high resolution SIC tags, bearing the pictoral logo as well as spelling out Science Innovation Company in letters so small you need to use command-0 to read them.
Then there’s a complex ‘unders’ attachment. It forms the prim ‘skirt’ but also contains pockets, more equipment and a belt. Here’s a shot from the rear, showing some of that equipment — goggles of some type? — and a pouch-like pocket with long flex-prim ties that move around nicely. This picture also shows the sleeve attachments, which are more than cuffs, but include some sort of knobs and dials as well.
Here’s the front of the ‘unders’ attachment, showing more prim pockets with round silver fasteners (there are 4 on the front, two on each side) and the very nice open belt, which has just the right amount of flex in it to give the convincing bounce of a stiff leather when you move.
The jacket comes with some simple shiny, wrinkled leather trousers (not pictured). They’re short in length, obviously designed to be worn with some kind of high boot.
It makes for a nice high-tech urban jacket and, at L$250 per colour, surprisingly affordable. You’ll find them for sale at: sick (214, 108, 29), a sim well worth wandering around. These photos were also shot there.
