Bummer, it turns out the skin has been discontinued from LaVie and I never heard back from them from last time I contacted them about a skin question =/
This would of looked great

I'd suggest checking out BadAzz. They've just launched a male skin. I think the face looks great. The body's muscles are a little over emphasised for me. Biut each to his own. Well worth a look.
If you're prepared to splash the cash, I'd also suggest taking a look at Sophistishapes. You buy the shape and receive a notecard to enable you to buy the skin, hairs, eyes, etc. to achieve the look that the shape compliments.

I wear LeLutka, because it's one of the few makers that do a skin suitable for red-haired guys.
A lot of good ones have already been mentioned; Belleza, Signature, Redgrave. No-one's mentioned Dutch Touch yet; those are nice (one of my alts wears one of theirs). Ispachi is another good quality but not-so-well known one. Also Cheerno.

The latest skins I got for my male alt was Abyss Identity. Like this, just normal version, not zombie. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/TheAbyss-SKIN
And Ispachi, "Bjorn". Both these skins are sold with shape and genitalia included, the Ispachi one is even scripted. This is really a good deal, since you easy spend several hundred §L to be "complete", and have to colormatch it too. Maybe you can't get a really close match and buy another one, trying to see if it fits the skin better.
I must admit that I haven't tested how good they look nude, but the male bloggers seem really happy about the equipment. Link has a NSFW picture. http://mensslfashion.wordpress.com/2011/02/17/76-r
My opinion is, a designer should always try to enhance the inworld experience for the customers. In a virtual world, where individuality is hard to obtain, selling modifiable items is like selling a bit of freedom. Think about that.

Filthy has a free group gift about every month, and that includes a male skin.

Redgrave doesn't have many male skins, but the ones they have are nice & their demos are free. So they're worth checking out.
The my main avi wears Redgrave almost all of the time & I've never felt the need to buy a premium skin from anyone else.
