Oh and dress for the beach (i.e. for lag). There were 60 avis on the sim when I visited. Kinda like Coney Island on a hot summer day....

Drave's Raves 6-24-11

20.FIVE is a new-to-me store, where all items are 25L, including four men's outfits. They advertise as having script-free clothing, but the attachments are easy to adjust (and no scripts = less lag.)

Moonshine, from the SL Showcase, deserves the honor. A great sim to explore, walk or dance with your partner, ride horses through the woods, and take photographs. Speaking of scripts, check the info board at the landing point to see your avatar's script count, and how it affects sim resources. (My count went from 180 to 11 just by deleting hair resize scripts.)

Outfit: 20.FIVE Leather Jacket (jeans/shirt included)
Hair: DURA Boy 06 (not free)
Location: Moonshine

Traveling to the farthest reaches of the grid, I found the Hunts & Shizz Headquarters, with some free and inexpensive clothes for men (and ladies) set out by Oh My Box! Hunt participants.

Presenting some more stuff from the MENStuff Lounge as well as the new Belleza skin group gift Ashton (right picture). You'll get it in 5 skin tones as well as versions with and without (chest) hair.

Would you like to blog your favourite outfits on "Fashion + Freebies For Men"?

Maybe you already thought about how it would be to have your own blog but decided it would be too much work or take too much time to make it known. Then, becoming a guest blogger or co-blogger for Fashion + Freebies For Men might be ideal for you. You can blog just as much as you like and your time allows.

So, ask yourself:
  • Am I a SL fashion addict?
  • Do I like to hunt for freebies and share my finds with friends?
  • Do I like to mix and match clothes and accessories and thus create my personal look?
  • Do I like to take nice pictures and maybe make up a little story to entertain readers?
If the answer to all of these questions is a "Yes, where can I sign up?" please create a note card with a sample post and a list of landmarks (just the way I do it, lol) and send it with a picture in a folder to Yves Firlan. Don't forget to add your name and information on when I can reach you best inworld to discuss further details. 

Looking forward to hearing from you, guys!
