The Dragon’s Brother

The Dragon's Brother

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. I know it’s rather late in the day to be posting a 25L Tuesday special since Tuesday is on limited time now. However, I had to get the word out. Viki, a smashing designer for both men and women has this full men’s set , “Jadon” for 25L Tuesday.

While I was at Viki’s main shop, I also found an unadvertised sale on a great pair of boots. Just the thing needed to finish up the outfit. The ‘Kane’ boots were only 10L for the pair. I foresee using these quit a lot as they are very well made and stylish.

We men do sometimes get overlooked when it comes to specials and sales. Or it’s another set of sweats or a baseball cap. But this is perfect for those of us who RP or prefer to live in a somewhat different era. As with many of the participants in these day long sales, this deal will be gone after midnight. So hurry along.

Sizes Included for both outfit and boots

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature
  • SLink Male

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. We have a nice surprise for the gentlemen today. Amazing Creations has given us a “two for the price of one” hunt prize appropriately enough for the Surprise Hunt. This is the ‘Casual 5’ shirt one of the two prizes you can get for just 3L and a little hunting.  The shirts both come in two versions, one with the ‘doubled’ long sleeve look and one with simple regular short sleeves. Perfect for this time of year when the weather can be warm one day and cool the next.

The Surprise Hunt runs until April 30th which is creeping closer rather quickly. So don’t delay too long or the surprise will be all gone.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh – XS – XL
  • Nardcotix David
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male
  • TMP

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers.  Though it may be afternoon at least in my part of the Grid… I am getting ready for the weekend nights. And the 50L Fridays sale is setting me up just perfectly. If you are unaware of this every Friday sale, you can see all the details here.

Let’s start at the top with the top. This is the ‘Tobias’ tank from Butterscotch and it’s the 50L special today. It only comes in the black but, if you wait till tomorrow you can pick one up in blue for the Saturday Sale. I prefer the darker colors so I don’t need to wait around. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
    Signature Gianni
    Legacy

 My new slacks are also just 50L today from one of my favorite designers: AsteroidBox.  These are the ‘Jordan’ pants and they come in a Unisex pack to include ladies sizes. Each leg can be colored separately to make your own style stand out. The metal zippers color can also be changed. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake  + Freya
  • Legacy Male + Female
  • Maitreya

Cold Spring

Cold Spring

Good morning, Fab Free Readers. The calendar may tell me it’s Spring but it’s still rather cold here in the real world. 25 degrees this evening and that’s before our chance of snow this coming weekend. While the shops and designers are bringing out the bathing suits and shorts, I still want something warm I’m afraid.

In deference to that, I have found a very nice new coat, scarf and sweater from a new-to-me designer – R3VOLT. The shop doesn’t appear to have an in-world store any longer but their Marketplace store is up and running.  This is the “Sterling” coat but really it’s the entire top in one piece. That’s coat, scarf and sweater.  There is also a HUD to change all three plus the pocket square to any one of fifteen color/pattern choices. All this for a low 10L price makes for an easy bundled up ensemble indeed.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL (Alpha layer included)

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. What a week it’s been and I can say I am rather relieved that we have finally come to the weekend. And when this weekend brings time for the Harmony Hunt and some very nice men’s wear… it’s all the more welcome.

For the uninitiated, the Harmony Hunt happens each month from the 15th till the 30th and featured prizes set at 10L each. Of course, the February round runs till the 28th but I’m sure that is not surprise. 😉 Happily there always seems to be several designers offering men’s wear for us each month. This round, I was lucky enough to find a New-To-Me designer; Game & Starke.

Game & Starke is offering us a  “Valentines Day” themed Hunt including the “Red Shirt” and “Black Pants” I’m wearing here. There are also many other prizes for the ladies in the hunt.  You simply hunt down the huge red hearts scattered throughout the store and for 10L, it’s yours.  The designers have set up a poster at the landing point showing all the prizes and the number for each prize’s heart. Which is much appreciated!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Physique Male

Black Heart

Black Heart

Good evening, Fab Readers. If you ever wonder what the bloggers here on ‘the Fab’ go through for you… wonder no more. I have braved the Valentines Day Shop & Hop for you.  I may be seeing pink and my ears ringing with love songs for days. But there was men’s wear to be had… so I prevailed. 😉

I found a very unusual shirt as the free gift for Reinvent and ended up rather liking it. This is the “Black Heart long sleeve” and yes… it’s sheer. Good thing I was at the gym earlier. The heart shape on the chest reads “Black Black Heart” and it may accurately describe how a lot of people feel about this holiday. The shirt is very well made and the details are spot on. Be sure to stick around and check out the Reinvent booth… there are some very nice things for sale.

The Valentines Day Shop & Hop runs until Feb. 15th so don’t delay.

  • Belleza Jake

Greetings, Fabulous Readers. As I may have mentioned in the past, I am continuously amazed at the generosity and good will shown by our very own Fab Designers. They surprise and delight us all the time. If you haven’t visited their shops, I highly encourage you to do so and even say a quick “Thank You” if you are so inclined. I’ll start with my own rousing “Thank You!” to Rea for this latest FabFree Group Gift: A 500L Gift Card!

You read that correctly, 500L to spend any way you wish in the Rea main shop. If you aren’t familiar with this designer, this gift is good for both men AND woman. Rea has an excellent selection of both sides of the closet, if you will.

I found this nice casual but not a Tee shirt out fit, “Henry” today and used only half of my Gift Card. I still have plenty to go back and pick another outfit… or shoes… or jeans…  Rea has it all. To make matters even better, Henry comes with the black jeans I’m wearing, the top and a HUD for three styles of the top. Very versatile indeed. 

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • FitMesh – 2 versions

Simply wear your FabFree Group tag and grab you gift card. One note, the vendor requires you to pay 1L but you will receive it back immediately.  Rea also has a free to join Group and many past gifts to choose from as well as Midnight Mania boards and lucky chairs.

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni
