Would you wear official SL merchandise? What about buying, using or wearing first life merchandise or products from your favorite SL designer if it were allowed to be sold in connection with their SL products at some point? (not saying that it would ever be and currently it’s not allowed to be advertised, referenced or linked on SL’s MP as far as I can see...but just asking…)

For myself I only wear logo T-shirts to the gym, so when I go back I might think about that...but still undecided.

Can't an SL designer simply make their own merch and advertise it in their profile or stick a prim with a link in their store in-world? I mean, corporations were doing it all the time when they had their own regions. Their merch was a lot more expensive.

Yes, of course. But AFAIK not any references, links or sales about it on MP.

*merch with their own branding and their own items not SL hand/eye merch. Or original art, handcrafts or 3d printed stuff etc. One youtuber makes and sells soap in first life for instance and talks about it in some of her videos. Not linking because I couldn’t find the link, I’m frazzled today.
