Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate.

Hello FabFam! This is ging to be a fast oe since we don’t have much time at all to take advantage of it! SO hold on… here we go…

If you don’t already know, the wonderful group, Historical Hunts (the website has hunt prize pics) is running their ‘Silk Road’ again this June and we are running out of time quickly to do the hunt. The Silk Road is your hunt for all things exotic and this year’s theme is Japan. There’s silk and kimonos and cherry blossoms galore! And of course a dragon or two!

We are showing off Amazing Creations free gifts for the Silk Road today. Gabe is wearing the ‘Black & Red Dragon’ shirt for the men and I have the lovely ‘Rock and Droll’ shirt dress on. The dress comes with two patterns and a HUD to change the color of the skirt if you’d like. The watercolor prints are just so pretty and the silk texture is beautiful. The only bad thing is all the gifts travel on down the road on June 26th. And that’s coming up! So hurry hurry, my dears!

C&N Medieval Designs, a long time excellent source for RP clothes for both men and women has this amazing smexy “Pirate” outfit for the men that Gabe is lookin’ so  good in today. The out fit comes complete with the top, pants and boots! Plus the vest can be worn with or with the shirt.

My rakish set is also a 25L Tuesday find. This is the “Cusu” set from Muneria. You get the tunic top with the bracers and belt wrap plus the leather pants. The HUD for both items is huge with plenty of choices. I know my RP character will be wearing this one for our next role play date.

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

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!

  • Belleza Jake

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.

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.
