Suited

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. Like Julianna said earlier, today is 25L Tuesday and there are a ton of good deals and great items. I was pleasantly surprised to se several things for us male types.  So, let’s get on with the details.

This is the “Tribus” shirt from Muneriea. It comes with a huge HUD for a choice of twenty colors. The shirt come with a matching pair of trousers. ( Not shown ) The HUD allows you to pick one of twenty colors for those as well. All in all, a good deal for just 25L.

Again as Julianna said, some merchants leave their 25L Tuesday selections up for Tuesday and beyond. But don’t count on it if you need to add this set to your wardrobe.

Bring it on, Monday

Bring it on, Monday

Good evening and a pleasant Monday to you , FabFree. I hope all of our gentlemen had a chance to make it over to Butterscotch for the free group join and gifts. 

Tastic is another new to me designer.  The shop is split between men’s and women’s clothing with the ladies side is a bit larger.  There are quite a few Lucky Letter boards for the group with just as many men’s things as the women which is great to see. The group is free to join and there are a dozen past gifts available to pick up. Like the mesh insert hoodie I’m showing.

The “Net Hoodie” is just unusual enough to really catch the eye. And I do love to see designers doing more than snapbacks and sweatpants.  The only drawback is this particular item does not come with a Belleza Jake size. But I was able to get a good fit with the SLink and some creative alpha-ing.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Altamura
  • Signature
  • SLink

First coffee, then everything else

First coffee, then everything else

Hello again, FabFree.  I was made aware yesterday of a new shop just for the men. Since this isn’t a common occurrence, I was more than happy to check it out. And I was very glad I did. But first I have to thank the great folks in the FabFreechat group who are the ones who brought this new store to Juli’s attention. She pounced on me the second I got in world and set me to work. ( A tip of the hat to “SB” )

The new shop is Butterscotch and it’s rather tasty as the name may suggest. When I landed at the front doors I had to dodge my way past loads of new shoppers which I hope is a very good sign of the designer. I joined the free group and immediately got a 400L gift card. A note of warning, if I read the signs correctly, this group will become 50L to join at some point in the future. A good reason to hurry over.  In addition to the gift card, there is also a group gift. This is the ‘Lucas Henley’. It comes with a full fatpack of colors. The HUD includes twenty colors for the Henley shirt and  twenty colors for the undershirt. The build is spot on and the details are very nice indeed.  I really appreciate that the arms and shoulders do not deform when I move. Something many designers miss when making male clothing.  

I used my gift card to purchase the jeans I’m wearing as well. The ‘Liam’ jeans are available in both singles and a fat pack. I chose the single ‘Denim #1’ pack. I am equally impressed with the jeans as with the top.  I have a feeling I will be showing off many more items from Butterscotch.   

Also…on a personal note… when you add the item from your inventory a soothing masculine voice says “Butterscotch… enjoy.”   I just… what can I say.  Juli made me take it off and on several times just to hear it again. I do have to admit… It’s an awesome touch.

Sizes Included ( Both top and Jeans )

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

Confess

Confess

All right, FabFree.  I have a confession to make. I was lazy this Holiday season and I did not do my due diligence when the Access Event opened up way back on December 12th. Now here it is about 24 hours before the Event closes… and I’m just getting a very nice men’s gift up on the blog. Don’t yell… Juli is already rather put out with me.  That said… don’t waste a moment getting over to the Access Event before it shuts it’s doors and pick up quite a few nice free gifts for the men. Just join the Access Event group which is also free.

I chose this stylish jacket and turtleneck combination from Varsity, the ‘Randon Jacket’. You’ll get a HUD to change the color of both the Jacket and the sweater for good versatility. The pose is built in to the jacket so your hands stay in the pockets. The details are very well done and I foresee wearing this quite often.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
Again… the Access Event closes January 8 so hurry over before it’s too late.

Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s a brand new year and a new opportunity to make the best of all the future has in store. I for one intend to hit the ground running, pun absolutely intended. At the start of this new year with all the possibilities ahead I definitely need a new pair of shoes. Semller has our feet covered with their most recent group gift, a limited time free group join, and group-only sale. From now until January 8th the Semller group will be free to join and group members will get a 30% refund on all purchases while wearing the group tag. Also, group members can pick up a free fatpack of the Megalodeon sneakers. They are unisex in that there are male, female, and unrigged sizes included. These detailed shoes at Semller can be completely custom colored via a detailed color change hud. The hud has the ability to color several individual parts of the shoe or all of it at once. There are also 10 presets to choose from if you don’t want to pick the colors out yourself.

Making Holiday Memories

Holiday Memory Making

In all honesty little moments like this one are my favorite part of the holidays. I find the most joy in things like wrapping presents, and cozying up with my love to watch Christmas movies. It might be an unusual year to say the least, but we can still find moments to enjoy the little things that matter most. Blue and I got into a festive mood recently with the free hunt prizes by Always Design and Park Place on the Peace on Earth Hunt. The merriment was made even better thanks to the 60L Happy Weekend offer from Muniick. Keep reading for all the details, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free!

Always Design

Generally speaking I’m not the sort that wants to wear matching outfits. There’s something about matching pajamas however that make me want them. These matching his and hers footie pajamas are the free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Always Design. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick from a handful of solid colors for the men, and stripes for the ladies. Also, these jammies can be worn by classic and mesh avatars.

Hunt Hint – “I have the best place to watch you.”

Mens Sizes Included: Mi Mado, Adin Bento, Onupup, Slink Male, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Fitmesh Classic + Alpha Layer

Womens Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Park Place

The cuddles are brought to you by Park Place! All silliness aside, the very generous free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Park Place includes this cute PG ottoman, the occasional table, the lamp, and all the little holiday goodies you see sitting on top of the table. Everything is copy so you can rez out multiples, and the lamp can be turned on or off via touch. The ottoman has male and female sit poses, and quite a few cuddles.

Hunt Hint – “You’ll find me in Wilmington.”

Muniick

There’s nothing like the holidays to make a person feel nostalgic. That said, if the 60L Happy Weekend offer by Muniick doesn’t get you right in the Christmas feels, I don’t know what would. This weekend only as part of the Happy Weekend Sale you can get this Christmas Edition of Muniick’s Vintage Television Cabinet set for just 60 linden. The 6 piece set has a console television with11 Christmas and New Years channel options, working model train, sad Christmas tree, Ho Ho Ho blocks, cinnamon stick candles, working Christmas lights, a bonus tv with non holiday themed channels, and a larger version of the model train.

Dreaming by the fire

Dreaming by the fire

Season’s Greetings, Fabulous Folk. As you’ve seen, Julianna is completely immersed herself in the Christmas cheer. So I feel I can do the same. Winter is fully upon us here in our little corner of the Grid and the Real World as well. In fact, there are little flurries of snow falling as I write this. So it’s the perfect setting to stay in beside the fire with a good book and a couple of happy puppers.

I’m dressed for the occasion in this casual turtleneck from Madcat Creations. It seems I’ve been showing quite a bit from this talented designer lately. And why not? Each piece is well built and  has excellent details. I know I certainly appreciate all the offerings for the men of Second Life since it can be difficult to find quality items on a budget.  This is the Snowflake Turtleneck Sweater, and you can pick it up for a little hunting and 1L as part of the “Dreaming of a White Christmas” hunt. If you’d rather not hunt, the gift is available for 25L on the Hunt poster. There is also a beautiful white snowflake dress in the same prize box for the ladies.
