As Stan reported a few days ago, The latest issue of L’Homme is out. With the Fifth anniversary issue comes a selection of gifts for the readers. To become a member of the free L’ Homme Reader’s group, simply tap the sign at any of the participating designers. Then help yourself to the gifts. Don’t forget to peruse the issue itself at L’Homme Magazine Second Life.

Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

Pin Up?

Pin Up?

I have a couple of my favorite things today. Comfortable, well-broken in jeans, a casual tee shirt and a cold ‘adult beverage.’  The best thing is I didn’t have to work too hard for two of them. Just 1 linden for the jeans and some hunt time for the tee.

Around the Grid

Around the Grid in Eighty Days is one of the bigger well known hunts in Second Life and the seventh annual hunt is in full swing until September 30th. That’s a good long time to hunt down some top notch prizes. Happily, there are a lot of good men’s items on the hunt along side the women’s fare. Like these perfect destressed jeans from ZFG. Just look for the red and yellow hot air balloon and a toss in one linden and they’re yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

I’m NOT sure I like the idea of Dumpster diving….

But… I really like this tee. This is the ‘Pin Up’ tee from The Sissy Bar and it’s the free prize for the Dumpster Diving Hunt. Luckily, I didn’t have to crawl in a dumpster to grab this great tee shirt. While you’re at The Sissy Bar looking for the tiny trash can… be sure to check out all the Hunts running and the past hunts shelves. TSB always has a solid selection of men’s items in their hunts. Something VERY much appreciated.

Day into Night

Day into Night

After all of Juli’s posts about how great the SL16B gifts are, I had to check it out for myself. I braved the lag and found a few nice gifts for us guys.

A to Zed

I saw these great shoes were the gift Zed was offering and I was so intrigued, I had to check out the rest of their offerings. I’m rather pleased I did. There are several gifts scattered about the shop. A very smart high necked sweater with a large HUD of colors and this full ensemble suit. I like the unusual choice of a tee shirt instead of a collared shirt and a chain necklace instead of a tie. Sometimes edgy is a good thing.  The ‘Lovers Day’ suit comes with the blazer and shirt combination, the pants, the dragonhead chain, a bracelet and it’s own set of shoes. There is also a matching cocktail dress for the ladies on the women’s side of the shop.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Shoes – SLink and Standard

Head to Toe

Now, about these shoes. The ‘Winklepicker Pikes’ ( it’s a style of shoe or boot worn from the 1950s onward by British rock and roll fans.) are Zed’s official Second Life 16th Birthday Celebration Free Gift. The generous Zed has given us the entire fatpack of the shoes so you should find a color and style that suits your every outfit.

Sizes Included

  • SLink
  • Standard (Resizable)

All Access

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

The Siren’s Song

The Siren's Song

Most of the time when you think of sirens singing, it’s not necessarily a good thing. You know… rocks, ship wrecks, sailors drowning. But this Siren’s Song has none of the bad things and ALL good things!  ‘Cause it’s a free Hunt! Mishmash Fusion is certainly one of those good things… two good things, in fact, one for us ladies and one for the guys as well!

Dark Siren

First up is the ladies prize for the Siren’s Song Hunt from Mishmash Fusion. This is the “Dark Siren” swimsuit and it will only cost you a little hunting. Yep, it’s a free prize! The suit is beautifully textured and each piece is separate for easy fitting.

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Men’s wear has been somewhat… scarce of late. So I was rather pleased to find a really well made gift set out for the men of Second Life by Breath. There’s also a second jacket and shirt set out that is a mere 50L. I, in fact, helped myself to both generous offerings. You won’t even need a group tag for this one. Thanks, Breath.

Just breathe

There are four versions of the “BB Jacket” set outside on the wall of the Breath store. But at 0L, you can pick up all of them. Each one has a different sleeve design or color. Take a moment, while you’re there, to browse the store. I found the prices to be reasonable and the selection was great.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits all

Denim Days

Denim Days

We finally made it to the weekend, time to kick off the business attire and get comfortable. Last Monday, I showed you the current Group Gift from Complex. But while I was there, I saw they also had a past group gift still available. So I wanted to show it off as well.

Denim Days

My denim jacket and hoodie are a past Group Gift from Complex but they are still out for pick up with your free group tag. They come as a set with a HUD to change the color of the hoodie and the color of the inside of the hood. I found the set to be very well built and fits like a charm.

Sizes Included

  • One size FittedMesh

Classic

Classic

Somedays call for nothing but comfortable and casual. I like a smart suit as much as , or maybe more than, the next guy but beach combing with Baxter calls for something less formal. Definitely something I can get muddy in when Baxter brings back that slobber soaked rope toy I no doubt will be tossing around for him.

Classic Cotton

This is the ‘Basic Tee’ from Complex and it’s the current free Group gift.  They call it ‘basic’ but it’s really just a classic cotton tee. Who doesn’t love a well worn comfortable tee shirt? The Basic Tee comes with a HUD for twelve solid color choices. Big bonus is that the tee is very well made and the group admission is free.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature – Gianni

Classic Denim

I picked up a new pair of knock around shorts today as well. These are the ‘Casual Shorts’ from Kalback and they are the free gift for the L’Homme readers group for May. The L’Homme magazine group is free to join (Just click the poster by the gift or in front of the store) and it will set you up for lots of great gifts from some of Second Life’s best designers. These shorts are proof of that. They come with a HUD for fourteen colors/patterns for the shorts and the cuffs. The cuffs can also be further customized with a Tinting control.

Size Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni

Not a Morning Person

Not a morning person

We all have little secrets. I guess one of mine is: I hate mornings. I mean I loath them. If I could be nocturnal, I would be one happy man. Most of my mornings are spent stumbling around looking for coffee.  And avoiding morning people…

Comfort

The best thing about mornings is getting to stay in pajamas while I’m stumbling around looking for coffee. Happily, Horr Men’s Wear has me covered. These are the simply named “Pajama Bottoms” for the Dirty Little Secret Hunt by Horr Men’s Wear. They are especially nice if you are looking for something comfortable yet not scruffy. Plus, they are only one linden and a little hunting. Perfect for a lazy morning.
