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!

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.

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

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 )

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.

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.

Break Down

Break Down

There are times when a gentleman must take matters into his own hands. No matter your breeding or status, when your airship’s boiler goes out… you pull on a sturdy pair of gloves, secure a tool box and sort things out.

ContraptioN, obviously understands this because this month’s free group gift for the L’Homme readers is all about getting your hands dirty yet remaining a gentleman.

This is the Thibaut waist coat “work” and it’s a generous free gift from ContraptioN. The ‘work’ designation being the soot and grime around the sleeves. Signs of honest work, if you ask me.  Equally well used are the leather gloves I’m sporting. These are the ‘Dapper Dandy’s Gloves’ also designated ‘Soot’.   Both of these gifts will be available until the next round of L’Homme.

Sizes Included (waist coat)

  • Belleza Jake
  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya (+ a Flat Chest Version)
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male Physique
  • SLink – Hourglass

At the end of day

At the end of day

Okay, FabFree… all together now… “THANK YOU ALINE!!!!!”

And why, you may ask, are thanking Aline? Other than the fact that she is an awesome person, and a really awesome Blogger, annnd she keeps us all going hereon the blog?  Because A few days ago she popped over and poked me about the Engine Room Event. I had forgotten all about it! She even said “There’s a ton of stuff there that just scream “Juli!” And wow, she is so right! I even found a gorgeous Gacha set for Gabe.

SteamFlirty

This is the “Abigale Set” from Devious Minds. It’s a 75L per play Gacha at the Engine Room. I can’t tell you how much I love this set. The flirty ruffle skirt, the blouse with full sleeves, and boots and the corset are all separate pieces. Plus I was lucky enough to pull the Rare Corset. In all there are a ton of colors for the items and I may be heading back to see if I can pull a couple more colors. Yep, I like it that much!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

Now Pru showed y’all a bunch of the free gifts at this anniversary round of Engine Room. I had to include a couple more in my outfit. First are my really cool sun glasses. These are the “Round Glasses” from Art & Gears and they are free to everyone in the free to join Second Life Syndicate group.  My cute gears choker is another free gift at the event from Rabbithouse.

Get Wrecked

Gabriel’s handsome shirt  and vest combo is another great Engine Room Gacha. This is the “Gentlesteam” from Rekt. The shirt and vest are done as a combo but each shirt comes with either a black tie or a tie the same color as the vest. His steams and gears new arm is also from the Gentlesteam gacha. The mechanical arms come in several metals and in the left or right versions. All that for an easy 50L per pull.
