Heartbreaker

Heartbreaker

House of Ruby has out a new line of T-shirts for men and they are real heartbreakers in the making… you can get one in the color blue for the promo price of just 56L off the Marketplace. The shirt comes in system layers as well as Slink and Omega Appliers for mesh bodies.

I did some checking around and paired the colorful T-shirt with facepaint which I found as a past group gift at Zibska. In fact there is an entire wall out of past group gifts that include make up, jewelry, and more. The group is 200L to join, but it’s a one time fee, and after joining, you’ll be able to fill your inventory with lots of boxes to open. The Marsh face paint comes in a full fatpack of 7 colors and you’ll get system layers as well as and Omega applier for mesh heads.

I tossed on an oldie but goodie to finish off the look… Wicca’s Wardrobe is another group that leaves out their past group gifts for customers to enjoy. I’ve blogged these Ares pants before but it’s worth mentioning that for your 50L join fee at Wicca’s Wardrobe you’ll gain access to many past group gifts for both men and women… like these excellent quality pants.

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

With the Cool Dogs

With the Cool Dogs

The Cart Sale is proving a virtual closet filler for us menfolk. I’ve picked up some great finds as I’ve previously shown you [HERE] and [HERE]. I stopped by today to check out the Ruckus Cart and again was thrilled at the offerings.

In the end, I decided on the black hoodie with striped t-shirt. This includes a hud that allows you to change the color of the striped t-shirt part, giving you six color options total including the blue I’m sporting above. The shirt comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is only 10L.

With the Cool Dogs 2

Did you notice the new skin I am sporting? This is the September gift skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and it is a nice one. It’s not often you come across a really great skin for men geared toward those with blonde or light colored hair and I was thrilled when I saw the large array of included appliers in this gift.

The group will cost you 150L to join if you are not already a member, but this one skin gift alone will more than pay for the fee. You’ll get 4 system skins (with beard and no beard options), appliers for: slink hands and feet, omega body applier, omega face applier, tmp face applier, and two shapes which are also included as a bonus. I opted to keep my own shape, but found that the included shapes were rather nice, and they are modifiable.

Love showed you some of the fabulous items to be had at the Cart Wash Sale from Dark Water Designs in her post [Here] but the menfolk are not to be left out. As Love showed you, the cart has gorgeous offerings for the ladies, but also some top quality offerings for men… and all for just the tiny price tag of only 10L each.

I picked up my outfit for only 20L total: 10L for the t-shirt (you get the print version shown and a solid grey as well in the box) and the pants were also only 10L. Like the t-shirt, the pants box gives you two options… the charcoal shown as well as a camo (not shown. With each, you get all the standard sizes, plus two fitmesh sizes — all for just 10L. In addition, if you purchase the pants, there is a pair of shoes included!

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

Ready for Adventure

Ready for Adventure

The Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow, but some of the vendors are already set up and ready to go. Emerald Couture is one of those that has their stuff out for you to peruse, and I was thrilled to pick up this fantastic leather jacket/shirt combo in the picture above for only 10L.

The one piece item comes in two fitmesh sizes as well as all the standard mesh sizes. There are also two other nicely made men’s shirts on the cart. Ladies there are several nice items there for you to check out as well. Don’t be afraid to get to the Cart Wash Sale early and check out these great items before the crowds tomorrow!

Blue Twist

Blue Twist

Out of the blue… I decided to get a little twisted… and put together a quick outfit to share with all of you.

The Twisted Hunt is on, and while this hunt is a tough one, the hunt gifts are well worth the finding. My amazing Rune in Blue mesh shirt (it comes in all the standard sizes) is the Twisted Hunt gift that is yours FREE when you hunt it down at Roped Passion’s main-store. There is also a nice ladies gift, two side gifts, and you can get the shirt in grey for only 25L if you so desire. A pretty fantastic deal, if I don’t say so myself.

I was also checking out the Fall Tears Hunt and when I started unpacking my boxes, was pleased to discover a pair of classically styled blue pants that worked perfect with my blue shirt from Roped Passion’s.

Stop by Horr Menswear and do a bit of hunting for the Fall Tears Hunt and this pair of blue slacks in all the standard sizes is yours for 1L and your hunting time. The cut is superb and they have a nice detailing of seams and pockets on the back rear end. These paired nicely with my shirt, but would go well with just about anything from dressing up to casual shirts as well.

Foxboro

Foxboro

Horr Menswear is participating in a rather nifty hunt… the Body of Evidence Hunt. This hunt has lots of excellent items for both men and women and I liked the look of the polo shirt offering that Horr Menswear is giving as their 1L contribution.

The Foxboro polo comes in all the standard mesh sizes in the color shown in the picture above and includes an alpha layer for standard avatars. For 1L and a little hunting time, this is a classic look well worth picking up.
