These September Days

Those September Days

There’s something about September days… they get me like nostalgia for summer but melancholy for winter and yet somehow they are some of the most incredibly beautiful days of the year. Tomorrow marks the first day of fall, but I figure today is not too early to show you some excellent clothes that will have you “fall ready.”

You’ve been seeing lots of clothes from the Indian Summer Cart Wash here on the blog, and with quality like this at the low price of 10L… it’s no wonder. And Rispetto does menswear right in this round of the event. I’m showing you two pieces you won’t want to miss. There are a couple of full outfits for just 10L on the cart, but also plenty of separates for just 10L as well. I opted to go for the separates route.

I donned the Kint Jeans for just 10L. These come in all the standard sizes and include their own alpha layer. I topped it off with the Klein Pea Coat in Smoke Tweed, again for just 10L. This too came with an alpha layer and in all the standard sizes. The coat is as well made as the jeans and is also made to fit over other shirts as I show in the picture. I topped it over a shirt from another outfit already in my inventory as an example and with excellent results.

Looking for top quality menswear at low low low prices? You’ll want to check out the Rispetto Cart before the Indian Summer Cart Wash Event is over.

Friday

Hello FabFree.

Friday

I hope this finds all of you enjoying your Friday and looking forward to the weekend. I have started my weekend off with some of the Hunts that are just kicking off. However what I’m showing you today actually isn’t from a Hunt. More of a haunt. Allow me to explain.  There are certain shops that I frequent even when they aren’t participating in Hunts or sales simply because I love their clothing. Cold Ash is one of my ‘haunts’. The clothes are extraordinarily well made and I eagerly look forward to their sales and Hunts and especially group gifts.  This is the ‘Logan Shirt’ in navy blue and it’s a free gift for everyone. The shirt includes the standard Mesh sizes S-L and three Fitmesh versions with one version being for The Mesh project bodies. I found it to be very true to size and an easy wear.

You’ll find this superb addition to your wardrobe on the ‘new releases’ board as you enter the shop. I can’t say how long it will be available so I advise haste.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Carting

Greetings FabFree Readers.

Carting

As, I am sure you are aware, the Bi Annual Cart sale at the Wash is going strong as we’ve seen from several of the ladies posts here.  But the gentlemen of Second Life haven’t been forgotten. I stopped by the Rispetto Designs Cart and found a very nice selection of casual men’s wear.  I picked out the Liam shirt in a nice linin color to show you and paired it with some comfortable jeans. The Liam top comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and has it’s own alpha layer. “Liam” also comes in a soft charcoal gray color if you fancy something darker.

The Rispetto Designs Cart has a wide selection of that wardrobe basic – Jeans. There are pairs on sale from the palest ‘broken in’ blue to gray to black. I chose a basic indigo blue. The “Brent” jeans come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and have their own alpha layer.

 

The Bi Annual Wash cart Sale runs until July 6 for your shopping pleasure.

I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Shiny Shabby Surely!

whc rispetto 1_001

whc rispetto 2_002

Hello everyone! It is I, your intrepid male freebie/cheapie hunter with a quick post for you. February will be over soon and will bring to a close two fabulous hunts: Menstuff and Jack Or Jill. If you have been putting it off, now is the time to start hunting! The amount of quality men’s hunt prizes available at the moment is impressive, and all yours for a little bit of effort! Even more time sensitive, though, is a pair of freebies that are available right now and will not be out very much longer.

Shiny Shabby is celebrating it’s anniversary on Second Life by throwing a big sales event featuring an unbelievable number of freebies. The Hoorenbeek stall at Shiny Shabby is offering as its free anniversary gift the Mesh Military Boots in Burgundy. As with all Hoorenbeek products, the texturing is amazing and the overall quality is excellent. I never pass up an opportunity to pick up free Hoorenbeek and neither should you, especially since this gift comes with both male and female versions in the box. The boots come in regular and short variations with the eyelets and laces texture changable via hud, and if that isn’t generous enough they also include the mesh jeans i am wearing and the mesh belt in two variants! While over at Shiny Shabby also check out what Amacci has put out as a free gift. The Zenith Eyes in Mocha are a striking set of Mesh eyes adjustable via hud. Additionally included are versions for those who prefer using legacy eyes. As you can see by the many Shiny Shabby items featured on Fab Free this week, it is an event not to be missed. Now you have two more excellent reasons to head on over there!

I started this post mentioning two great men’s hunts that are winding up this month. Rispetto Designsfree Jack Or Jill Hunt gift is the Devin MESH Jacket & Hoodie in Army. As you can see from my lead picture it is a very casual looking garment. Appearing to be made up of multiple layers, this one piece of integrated mesh is beautifully textured to look well-worn and comfortable. Coming in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, this is a free hunt gift definitely worth getting your hands on. Also on the Jack Or Jill Hunt is the free hunt gift from 7 Deadly S{K}ins. The River in Taupe skin is a very handsome skin. Even though I usually like to show off skins by getting close to naked, this time I decided to spare all of you the gratuitous near nudity and just tell you it’s a fine example of the kind of quality skins 7 Deadly S{K}ins is known for producing. When you are picking up these two hunt gifts look for the Menstuff Hunt prizes as well since both stores are also participating in that also.

That is all I have for you at the moment, but rest assured I will try to tempt you into going hunting at least once more before this month is over. Until next time my friends, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

An Avalanche Of Menstuff Begins!

whc winter rispetto 01

Greetings from the Arctic Circle! Well actually it’s the East Coast of the United States, but this weekend you can’t tell the difference. We are getting slammed with the white, fluffy stuff as I write this; and with some luck, I just might have electricity on long enough to get this posted!

Menstuff is, in my opinion, the best male hunt of the year. It is a 1L hunt, although some stores have opted to set their prizes out for free! The hunt object to look for is a dark blue T-Shirt shaped object. While they can be small, they are usually not hard to find.

The fantastic Trent Mesh Sweater in Charcoal from Rispetto Designs is where we begin the Menstuff coverage. This sweater has a heavy wool texture to help you look toasty, and the styling is simple and masculine. Click the above picture twice and get a good look at the texture. It’s marvelous! It is offered in five sizes for an easy fit. I found the Mesh looked flawless on me. Also, Rispetto Designs includes the Logoro Mesh Jeans in Blue/Grey in the Menstuff Hunt prize which are excellent and would be a solid garment to have building a casual wardrobe. They are realistically textured and come in five sizes also for a good fit. This is a prize that should not be ignored, especially if you are a new resident to second life! Items like these will have you looking great in no time and for only 1L!

whc winter hana 01

As I said, I have been hit in real life with one heck of a snowstorm! It is extremely cold here, so when I saw the 1L Open Cardigan W/Shirt Menstuff Hunt prize from Hanauma Bay Clothiers, I had to smile. Not only is it super good looking and well made, but it is a mesh piece layering two sweaters! This is a beautiful one-piece Mesh featuring a cardigan style sweater over a pull-over styled one. Offered in five sizes, two of which are fitmesh, it will fit your avy quite nicely. Take it from me, the man wearing his entire real life wardrobe as he shovels the driveway, two sweaters are way better than one! Reminds me of the time I was driving down Lee Highway and a police car came up next to me. I heard the cop’s voice say, “Pull over!” I was so happy, I turned so he could see better and said “And a cardigan too! Hi-5!” It is always nice when someone notices a great looking garment on you.

whc winter bd 01

I debated whether to include the free Beautiful Dangerous Menstuff hunt prize, the Danny Sweater in Paynes Gray in this post or not. Truthfully, were I not racing a certain power outage, I would hold it for another entry. Why? There certainly isn’t anything wrong with the quality or the styling of this great sweater. No, it is simply that I felt the picture does not show it off as well as I would have liked. This is a beautiful sweater, masculine and simply styled to go with almost anything. It appears to be made of lighter material than the heavier texture of the Rispetto sweater, making it perfect when the weather is a bit on the cool side rather than a snowy landscape in the above picture. This is a sipping-brandy-by-the-fire kind of sweater and, as such, is very well executed. It is offered in five sizes for a good fit, and is a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The Menstuff Hunt is a 1L hunt but Beautiful Dangerous has put their hunt item out for free!

All these sweaters would be excellent pick ups and very solid parts of a male avy’s wardrobe. Menstuff has been an excellent hunt for me so far, ranking as the very best in terms of ratio of items kept, versus items deleted. It truly is time to start doing hunts and snapping up some quality goodies! I just noticed that the sound of my teeth chattering reminds me of the old manual typewriter I used to have long ago. Oh the memories! For now I am off to shovel snow and chase any stray penguins out of my yard. Take care, and I’ll see you on the grid (as long as the power stays on)!—–WHC Riler

whc Rispetto Tepore_001

Happy Wednesday everyone! The Wash Bi-annual Cart Sale is about to end, so I wanted to make sure that you know this is your last chance to scarf up some great 10L bargains. The item I chose to highlight today is the Tempore Mesh Outfit from the Rispetto Designs cart. It consists of a toasty, nicely-textured sweater in a wine color, and a pair of blue jeans. Both items are provided in five sizes for a good fit and make for a cozy casual winter outfit. Truly a bargain at 10L! The deals don’t end there though. The Rispetto Designs cart is packed with 10L items for guys to check out including more sweaters, jeans and a pea coat! I am sure there is something on the cart for everyone. If you can, check out the final day of The Wash Bi-annual Cart Sale today, where 10L can get you some seriously nice garments. That’s all for the moment. Take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Dark Fae & Rispetto Designs at The Wash Cart Sale

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
The Wash Cart Sale as some good stuff for men in addition to all the goodies for the ladies, and all at bargain prices.  I was pleased to find that one of my favorite stores, Rispetto Designs, is back in SL after having been closed for about a year, and has a small men’s shop on The Wash sim and  a cart in this month’s cart sale.  Designer Khayman Karlsvalt’s Amour & Rispetto Designs cart is selling one of my favorite summer outfits for just $10L – the Giretto tank top, roll-up shorts and waist-tie sweater.  You get both a black and a white tank top with the outfit, and it’s great for the beach or just hanging out.

Image

Next up is the men’s hoodie and cargo shorts that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart.  The mesh hoodie comes in both a t-shirt version and an open, bare-chested look.  Dark Fae’s black mesh cargo pants complete the look with either version of the hoodie, but the pants can be worn by themselves as a board-shorts swimsuit as well.  The hoodie and the shorts are each a mere $10L at the Dark Fae Cart.

Image

The hair I’m wearing with both outfits is Mario in black, the May group gift from Pocket Mirrors.  Pocket Mirrors specializes in retro and old-time hairstyles for men and women, and it’s another favorite store of mine that has been off the grid for sometime but is now back with a new store.  It’s well worth a visit.

ImageAnd finally, if you’re curious about the little piece of paradise in the background of these photos, you should check out the Arabian Oasis of Love, also available at The Dark Fae Cart at The Wash Cart Sale.  For just $10L you get your own beach or desert oasis complete with palm trees, fountain, and animated cuddle rug with pillows.  There are nine pg cuddle poses in the rug, many of which are suitable for relaxing as a single, and the package contains both a full-sized version and a petites-sized version of the oasis and rug.

Happy 10th Birthday Second Life!

You will have to forgive my dorky humour, but I asked Calgon to toss on this T-Shirt (I’m pretty sure he had no idea what he was in for – lol) so I could show both the male and female versions of these great free T-shirts on marketplace in both mesh and non-mesh version in celebration of Second Life’s 10th Birthday!  I came across an old pose by SparrowTree that I had a little fun with😉

Disclaimer:  No Calgons were harmed in the making of this little comic and nothing is based on real events (mostly, unless you count yesterday) – just having some fun.

Snapshot_004Hey, so far he’s doing good!  It was refreshing to not hear the usual pick up lines that us girls have to put up with in Second Life like…

Snapshot_002 21-55-46I was enjoying my beer, giggling at his jokes, and admiring his sparkling smile, when he says…

Snapshot_001UGH! I should have known this was coming!  And then…

Snapshot_003Just when I thought he had finally given up, he tried to engage me in conversation again… but us girls got tricks up our sleeves, and we know how to handle situations like this, right?

Snapshot_007Another Disclaimer just in case anyone wondered – I’m not really a female impersonator.  I am an actual female, but…

Snapshot_002t

Calgon will probably never sit on a pose ball for me again – but this was fun… Heee heeeeeeeeeeeee

Ashmoot-in-Summer

Hey Fab Freebers! It’s Fridayayday and I thought I’d toss you a quickie and do a little boating.  Ashmoot has this really nice mesh shirt and jacket combo on the MM board that goes great for the occasion. The shirt and jacket are rigged mesh and put together nicely. The pants are from the Vacanza outfit at Rispetto (top shown in a previous blog HERE) and matched perfectly.  The outfit is not exactly free but very reasonable. The shoes are still free for members at Gabriel. Get your weekend started off right by heading over to Ashmoot!

Rispetto’s Got Some Deals… Duh!

Happy Mother’s Day to you, Fab Freebers! Nothing I show you today is free… but it’s good enough to wear to your mom’s and the price is right enough so I wanted to give you a look. I was browsing around Rispetto Designs and noticed a couple of nice items that are selling for very reasonable prices.  I found a great jean and sweater outfit for just 50L that includes three sweater colors (black, rose and grey). The jeans come with prim cuffs that you can adjust for whatever shoes you are wearing.

RispettoNew5_001

Lunedi Sweater Outfit

Rispetto also has the Vacanza mesh shirt that also has matching mesh pants that I’m not showing here. The outfit sells for 50L. Rispetto has a lot of other great deals and group gift prizes although I couldn’t find any that were available at the moment. Head on over and take a look around. You might find something that catches your eye and all prices are reasonable.  I also picked up a pair of black sneakers for 10L from Duh! that fit perfectly with the outfit.
