Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I may be something of a grump but there are a few things I really do like about the Holiday Season.  I have to admit, I enjoy the “finding a tree” rituals. The tree lots or cutting a fresh tree. Nothing makes it really Christmas time for me like the smell of evergreens and some hot chocolate at the tree farm.

Winter Wonderland

Another Holiday tradition has to be the Wash’s Winter Wonderland Cart Sale. And I have to include here a huge thank you to all the designers who don’t forget the men of Second Life when they stock those Carts! On that note, Dark Water Designs has set out a handsome coat and sweater combo for us in four festive colors: the’Winter jacket Combo’. It’s a combo times two. You get the jacket sweater as a combination and the sweater can be changed from plain to a snowflake pattern.

Sizes Included

  • FitMesh
  • Classic Mesh S_L

Well Suited

Well Suited

The Holiday season is truly upon us. And the Grid is abuzz with shopping and presents and parties and of course Hunts. I do enjoy a good hunt and I am especially pleased to find good prizes for the men.

Go nuts

When Nuts Inc comes up on a Hunt, I know that I am in store for a good prize. And this time is no different. This is the ‘Thomas’ suit and it’s the free prize for the Peace on Earth Hunt from Nuts Inc. As I said, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed with this prize. The suit comes in an all in one piece of jacket, shirt, pants, and tie. As an added bonus, the prize includes a very smart pair of shoes.

Something Warm

Something Warm

The days are getting shorter as we head towards the end of the year. Even here on the Grid, having something warm to slip on is a must. And since I’m not working… finding something stylish and warm and cheap is a true must.

Fits the Bill

Stylish? Check. This chunky sweater from Ink Blots is certain stylish. Warm? Check. The texture is a heavy rustic knit in Fall colors. Cheap? No! Not even a little. But it IS inexpensive at only one Linden. This is the one Linden men’s prize for the Jerky Turkey Hunt 8 going on now. Ink Blots has also provided a matching sweater for the ladies in the same Hunt object. For your convenience, the Hunt runs until the end of the month.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh sizes XS-XL

Definite Style

Definite Style
The November issue of L’Homme Magazine is on the stands now. Along with excellent fashions and photography, with it comes free gifts for the readers. Just tap any of the signs and join the group for free.

Bakaboo

Bakaboo is quickly becoming a favorite designer for me. Not only is the quality of the build stunning, the style is on point. I look forward to their gift each month because I know it will be something extraordinary and not another hoodie or ball cap. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good hoodie as much as the next guy but I like something different now and then. And Bakaboo is the go to for stylish you-don’t-see-this-everyday fashions.

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Fitmesh XS_XL

November

November

November makes me feel.. quiet. Thoughtful. Maybe even a bit melancholy. Or maybe I need to listen to Juli and get back to work.  **Thinks about it for a minute**  Nah…

In the Army

I have no idea how long this great army shirt and undershirt will be available from Hoorenbeek. So if you want it go grab it soon. The ‘Army Shirt’ can be worn with and without the undershirt. It also comes with a HUD to change the color of the undershirt to one of twelve choices. The shirt combo is for Group Members only but the Group is FREE to join so don’t let that stop you.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Sizes
  • Signature – Gianni and Geralt

Austin in the Fall

Austin in the Fall

It’s  good day here on the Grid to just wander some of the spectacular Autumn Sims.  Fall is my favorite season and I mean to enjoy it.

Perfect for Crisp Days

I found a new-to-me designer while Hunting down Dirty Little Secrets: Nuts Inc where they encourage us to “Have the guts to wear Nuts”.  This is the ‘Austin’ Denim jacket and tee and it’s on the 25L path for the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. There is also a ladies prize that perfect compliments this jacket. The jacket comes with a HUD for six colors of denim and eighteen colors/patterns of tee shirt.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL

Now, I’m going to finish my walk then see if Juli left any of the chocolate from her and the dogs trick or treating. 😉

Nevermore

Nevermore

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—

The Raven

~ Edgar Allen Poe

Nothing like a Great Suit

It’s no question I love a good suit. In my opinion, it’s the ultimate attire of the true gentleman. And this suit? Perfection. This is “Whisper Lenore” from Sparrow By Design for the “Quoth the raven. Nevermore” Hunt. The fabric has almost a burn out velvet look that is amazing. I highly recommend taking the time to hunt down this suit. And Ladies, SBD has put out a lovely dark gown for you as well. Don’t miss it.

Size Included

Mesh sizes XS – XL

 

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Seasonal

Seasonal

So, Readers,  I didn’t make it back to the beach. But I did find a more ‘seasonal’ place to hang out for a bit. Nothing like shirking work in an Autumnal SIM.  Of course… it is haunted. But nothing’s perfect.

Making the Summit

I did run across a great Hunt while avoiding Juli. The Psycho Pumpkin Hunt from Gossip!Hunts is a 1L hunt with Female, Male and Unisex prizes running until October 27th. I picked up this shirt, ‘Summit’,  from Horr Men’s Wear as their Hunt prize. Just look for the black and orange frosted cupcake and it’s yours.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • Standard Mesh XS – XL
  • TMP

 

Maybe I can find a few more Hunts before Juli tracks me down.

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James

Hiding Out

Hiding Out

Dear Readers,

And why am I hiding out in a smoky bar instead of … socializing on the beach with bikini clad ladies?  Because someone told Juli I was slacking. **Looks pointedly at Izzy** But…

It’s not all bad.

I have my adult beverage of choice, some tobacco products and a smooth new shirt to enjoy them in.  This is the ‘Tygren Shirt’ from Sweet Intoxication and it’s the men’s gift in the 40 Hunt celebrating Crissy Sparrowtree’s fortieth birthday.  There are prizes for both men and women and unisex or home goods as well. Just look for the confetti filled balloons.

Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh S M L
  • Adam
  • Aestheti
  • Geralt
  • Jake
  • SLink
  • TMP

 

Maybe Juli will get tired of stalking me and I can get back to the beach. *eye roll*

Cheers,
Gabriel St.James
