Music on - World off

Good Afternoon, FabFree. We seem to be rushing to the end of April rather quickly now. Hunts are wrapping up, events closing. But amid all the hustle, we have a brand new Group gift from Redangel for the FabFree Group. And even better, this gift is for the men of FabFree.

This is the “Music” tee from Redangel. But it is only one of five musically inclined shirts in the Fatpack you will pick up for free with your FabFree Group tag. I have been known to pick up an instrument or two and spend a cold rainy day just fretting or getting a song onto paper.  And this is perfect gear for a day like that.

What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

Hello again, FabFree. As I am sure you may have seen, we have had several new designers join our growing ranks of Fabulous Designers for the FabFree Group. It’s always exciting to welcome new talent and when one such new designers has gifts for the men… it’s doubly exciting.

Which brings us to Dreams. While Dreams is not exclusively male clothing it does a very nice selection of well made items. Simply head upstairs to the men’s department and browse.  Their Group is free to join as well and there are group gifts for both men and women.  The “Uriel” shirt I’m sporting today is the gift for the FabFree Group so it’s yours for the asking once you join up. Which is, of course… free.  Be aware, the vender will ask for 1L and immediately refund it. Uriel comes with a HUD for six colors and while the store logo is embroidered on the chest… it’s subtle and not distracting.  I highly recommend taking a moment to explore this newest FabFree designer.

Wearin’ O The Green

Wearin' O The Green

‘Afternoon, FabFree. I hope you are all getting around and picking up the plentiful pries from the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt. Today is the last day to do so! But it’s worth the rush! I had to pack a couple of designers into my post today because I don’t want to miss a thing.

First up is the complete outfit from Nuts Inc. The “Jim set” comes in two prize boxes, one with the sweater and one with the jeans and sneakers, each for just 3L. The delightful Ms. Lea Supermarine did tell me that she was generously going to leave the prizes out for a day or two longer to make sure everyone had a chance to pick them up. Thanks, Lea! And you don’t want to miss this set. Just the jeans are a solid build that I can see wearing quite a bit of year round. And the sneakers go with several things in my casual closet.

Next are the two short sleeved tees from Redangel. This was a new to me designer and I’m rather pleased to have “discovered” them. Take a turn around the shop when you go pick up these tees. I particularly like the ‘sanitized’ one.

Lastly, is my new wall decor from Earthworkx. The “Lucky Tiles” are meant for St. Pat’s day but I like them enough to keep them up year round. Juli and I play a lot of Scrabble and I usually win. Elves can’t spell… 😉

Don’t forget… today is your last day to grab these prizes and get lucky!

The Rogue

The Rogue

Good afternoon, FabReaders. In bit of a hurry here. Once again I find myself in adventures way. A lost temple, a treasure to be taken… a monster to be slain. It’s a rogue’s life. And I have no one to blame but myself. 😉

I was innocently on the FabFree St. Paddy’s Day Hunt when I unpacked this prefect adventurer’s coat from Amazing Creations and just like that, I was sword in hand and stalking monsters. The coat come with a hood and a no hood version and a HUD to customize the colors. I stuck with the black and gray to melt into the shadows.  Amazing Creations also offers a ladies gift for the FabFree Hunt… but I digress.  Did you hear that? Something… slithery…?  I must be closing in on the secret of this evil temple!

The Privateer

The Privateer

Good afternoon, FabFree.  One of my absolute favorite Hunts has come ’round again: The Steam Hunt. This year’s theme is Steampunk Pirates which only increased my enthusiasm as I often consider myself something of a … well, pirate is such a negatively charged word. Let’s say ‘privateer’ instead.  With that in mind, I headed over to the local pub for a drop of ale. Or should I say grog.

The latest staple for my adventuring wardrobe is from Contraption and its free for the Steam Hunt. As with everything I have encountered from Contraption the ‘Atreus Frock coat’ is a stunning build. Every detail is perfection. I anticipate wearing this quite often.

The Steam Hunt has over 90 ports of call for the intrepid hunter but you only have until the 28th of March to hoist the black flag and set sail.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Flat

  • SLink Hourglass

Tuesday Break

Tuesday Break

In the midst of some very nice ladies RPG wear and somewhat naughty Club wear… 25L Tuesday has a little something for the men of Second Life. Munereia has supplied a very casual… Sunday afternoon look for the men today.  ‘Satra’ is a complete outfit with both the pants and the two-in-one top and comes with two HUDs to change the color of the inner shirt, the outer cardigan and the pants. The HUDs each contain twenty colors to choose from. The colors are very washed out and faded adding to the comfortable look.

25L Tuesday requires no group to pick up the special sales and you can easily see what’s included at their website.

  • Adin
  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Suited

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!

Sizes Included

  • One size + Alpha if needed

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.

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.
