As you know, Ricco retired from the clothes design business, but now he’s undertaken a new creative endeavor: Second Sighting. His new blog is all about the marvel of people’s ingenuity in a virtual world, so he will be traveling the up and down the grid, taking pictures and recording his impressions of sims that highlight the creator’s inventiveness and originality.
Please join Ricco on Second Sighting and follow his journey as he explores the world of Second Life. – Keebo
Dear friends and customers,
For a variety of reasons, Havana menswear is closing. Nonetheless, since designing in SL and keeping the store allthis time has allowed us to have fun, meet great people and make some new friends, we would like to show you our gratitude by having a last sale: 50% off for all of Havana’s products until Oct. 10, but only at the store. After that date, our items will be available only on the marketplace (no discount there) – and probably there will be no new items. So, hurry up to the store: HAVANA’s main store
Keebo and Ricco
HAVANA is once again taking part in the 49L Sale for Dudes, which runs from today through October 23. Participating merchants offer an item of merchandise for 49L, which is usually a great discount. For this edition, we are proud to offer our Caribe Shirt Color Pack.
This pack contains the Caribe shirt in violet, green and yellow and is available in our HAVANA On the Docs location. Look for the pink arrow to find the sales vendor.
To see a complete list of merchants participating in the sales, visit their blog at http://49lsalefordudes.wordpress.com/
Jaunty for Men, an SL magazine for men’s fashion, presents the 49 Linden Sale for Dudes, running from June 20-26. All items in the sale/hunt will be L$ 49, well below their normal selling price.
HAVANA is proud to be part of this event. The item we are offering you is the Lazy Nights Black-to-Red tank. It normally sells for L$ 100, so here’s your change to get it at a 50% savings.
We will have two vendors available for you to purchase this item from, one at each entrance to our HAVANA On the Docks location. Vendors for this sale can be identified by the Dude Arrow:

HAVANA is proud to have been invited to participate in The Menswear Fashion Week 2010. This group of shows will take place from January 8th to 16th and includes some of SL’s top men’s designers. The week will include individual and themed fashion shows, parties and the participating designers’ stores, all on a dedicated sim.
We will be featuring 7 items from the HAVANA collection in two shows – the Casual show on Friday, January 8th at 4 pm SLT, and in the Shapes/Underwear show on Monday, January 11th at 6 pm SLT. We will be featuring this items on future blog posts as well. Our store in The Menswear Fashion Week sim will contain our featured items, as well as our entire current collection.

Ricco and I wish to extend warmest holiday wishes to all of our readers and customers. We wish you all the best in the coming new year and look forward to a continued wonderful relationship.
The Make Him Over Hunt 2 was very successful for us and hopefully introduced many more people to Ricco’s incredible work. Thanks to the over 2000 people who visited the HAVANA main store.
We had such fun with the MHOH2, we’ve decided to take part in two upcoming hunts. The first to kick off will be the GLBT World Stamp Out Aids Hunt, which runs from Dec. 1-31st. Over 100 vendors are taking part in this hunt. At each location will be a freebie giver, of course, but each location will also have a donation kiosk which will accept your Linden donations to AIDS charities. More information can be found here.
The next hunt we are taking part in is The One is Silver and the Other is Gold Hunt. This one runs from Dec. 5th – Jan. 9th and contains over 100 merchants. This was originally composed of jewelry merchants but was later expanded.
We will provide new, unique freebies for each hunt, and we hope you all will take part!
Just as in the rest of Second Life, HAVANA is always going through changes to bring you a better experience. In that vein, we are proud to announce our new location in the Zeus Men’s Mall at Gay City Cologne.
This store is just outside the Zeus Club, popular with both European and Western crowds. Come shopping with us, then head up to the club for one of their nightly dances.
Our friends at Gay World have also renovated the whole sim, giving it a Mediterranean feel. After being out commission for a couple of days while the renovations were taking place, we were able to move into our beautiful new storefront.
Ricco took this opportunity to work his decorating magic on the inside of the store with new walls, floors and ceilings. (This theme has also been extended to our Zeus Men’s Mall location as well.)
And finally, although this is a work in progress, we are in the process of converting our main store at The Gayborhood from the apez.biz vendors to individual hanging clothes in order to give you a better feel for how our designs look in 3D. (Many thanks to Ricco for the long hours he’s put into this project.)
Our full list of locations:
– Havana at The Gayborhood (in SL)
– Havana at Gay World (in SL)
– Havana at Sky Tower (in SL)
– Havana at Zeus Men’s Mall (NEW STORE in SL)
– Havana on XStreetSL
– Havana on Apez
This is just a reminder that HAVANA has a number of items on sale at 50% so that we can clear our inventory. Following are examples of two of the items on sale:
There is not much time left. The sales lasts through Aug. 1, at which time the items will be removed from inventory.
HAVANA merchandise can be found at:
Havana at The Gayborhood (in SL)
Havana at Gay World (in SL)
Havana at Sky Tower (in SL)
Havana at Zeus Men’s MallHavana on XStreetSL (on the web)
Havana on apez.biz (on the web)
Well, after much shuffling, HAVANA’s stores are all in their new locations. Our final move was to our new anchor store at the permanent home of The Gayborhood:
This is a huge, new store for us and gives us plenty of room to expand. It has a spacious first floor and a second floor that circles the center of the store. We have temporarily set up our vendors, but watch for many more changes once Ricco gets back from vacation.
You can find HAVANA fashions at the following locations:
Part of my job at Havana is to manage the various aspects of the vending systems. I’ve found that we’ve reached the limit of what we can store and sell, both on XStreetSL and in-world, so Ricco and I have decided to clear out some of the older items.
Before we remove these items from sale, we’ve decided to hold a clearance sale and are offering them for around 50% off from now until August 2.
(These pictures only show some of the items on sale; we have many more in the stores and on XStreetSL.)
All of the discounted items have the word CLEARANCE before their names, both in-world and on XStreetSL. Be sure and take this opportunity to get these HAVANA items before they disappear forever!
As always, you can find HAVANA fashions at the following locations:
It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for our 80’s in Undies party at Gay World, 6-8 slt. Come join the party and get your free t-shirt and briefs. More information available here.
