After a period of hard work, we are finally proud to announce HAVANA’s new collection for male avatars in SL. Our customers have already had a small preview of our new items, which coincided with the past 49 L Sale For Dudes and the Menstuff Hunt – and now the whole collection arrives together with our participation in the Menswear Fashion Week 2011 and the 5th 49 L Sale (both events have started yesterday, March 18, and will continue until next Friday, March 25).
This time, HAVANA brings to you a series of bikini briefs with sculpted front, tanks, flexi jackets, shorts (which can be transformed into pants as well) with prim cuffs and prim waist bands and loose flexi ties which can be combined with our casual outfits as a fancy accessory. We also decided to develop an additional camo version of selected items, in order to give our customers even more options along with the colorful alternatives already identified with HAVANA. If you are interested in seeing some of our new stuff on the runway, along with other outfits we have developed since the past Fashion Week, do not miss the shows during the Menswear Fashion Week 2011. Our first participation will be today, March 19, at 4 P.M. SL Time, during the SL Boy’s Night Out (Casual Group Show), at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/San%20Francisco%20Marina/125/210/41. Also, our 49 L Sale item, which you can buy both at HAVANA’s main store and at HAVANA’s store at the Fashion Week sim, is one of our new releases: the Camo Boy Shorts, in its Sky Camo version. So, here’s what you’ll find in our new collection:

The first Menstuff Hunt, successor of the original Make Him Over Hunt, officially started yesterday, Jan. 29, in Second Life. You have until Feb. 28 to visit about 150 stores dedicated to fashion for male avatars in Second Life and collect your gifts. Of course, HAVANA is there with a special prize for our hunters: another sample of the new collection we will release during the next weeks – and this pre-release outfit, a sexy one, made of classic pants and a loose flexi tie, is for free until the hunt ends. Do not miss it.
How it works:
– To collect your gift at HAVANA, go to the HAVANA Department at HAVANA On The Docks (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Havana%20Docks/234/191/23) and find the hunt object.
– The hunt object is a black sculpted T-shirt on which you can read “MENstuff”. Attention, the T-shirt is NOT your gift, it is just the hunt object. Click on it to collect your prize.
– A hint to find the hunt object at HAVANA: Run to the light, Carol Anne!
– HAVANA is store #93 in the hunt and you can start the circuit at any point. Once you collect a hunt gift, you will receive a landmark to the next store and, when you reach the last store on the list, you will receive a landmark to the first one.
– For a list of the stores taking part in the hunt, you can check the Menstuff Hints & SLURLS page on the Menstuff blog (
the page does not have the slurls, though, only the store list and the hints to find the gift the slurls were added).

The HAVANA On The Docks fashion show and opening party was a blast! Thank you all who attended; we hope you enjoyed it. We will soon post some pictures of that great event. Meanwhile, I am happy to announce that HAVANA keeps celebrating the opening of the new department store with two special releases: the Havana Fedora (with different patterns for you to choose and at a discounted prize only during June) and the Azazello Pants.
The Havana Fedora is a classic model made more contemporary by means of some colorful, expressive plaid patterns – and you do not even have to choose which one you would like to have: it comes scripted, with the three different options. Just click on it and choose the color that best fits your outfit and your spirit each day.
The Azazello Pants is actually one of the first creations by me. It was especially made for Azazello Zeluco, who, after a while, generously contacted me to let me know that, if I would like to release the pants to Havana’s customers, he would be pleased to share the design with other guys. So, here it is. Made in (virtual) leather, the Azazello pants feature some hot flames around the legs and devil horns on the back part.
– Havana Fedora: L$ 175 (discounted price to celebrate the HAVANA On The Docks opening; the hat comes with 3 different textures: red plaid, black plaid and blue plaid).
– Havana Azazello Pants: L$ 125.
This is a week of new releases: besides our freebie for the Make Him Over Hunt 3 (check our post about it), we finally bring to you the commercial version of the HAVANA Beach Flowers Shirt and the HAVANA Bowler hat.
The Beach Flowers Shirt was conceived a while ago, for the New Man Hunt, but hadn’t had a commercial release – up to now. It is an innovative design for HAVANA, since its lower part is made of a series of flexi prims, which give the shirt a nice movement when one walks around in it. The shirt comes open, which adds to the casual atmosphere that it creates, and can be worn with a tank top or, if you want to be more daring, with nothing under it, in order to show some bare chest.
The HAVANA Bowler is exactly what its name says: a bowler hat. Since we first made it (also a while ago) we worked on the base sculpt in order to improve it. We came up with this version which is being released now (the ones who have bought it before have already received the new version for free). A bowler is always a nice hat and goes with many different outfits, both casual and formal ones. But to be more fresh and vibrant without having its versatility reduced, the HAVANA Bowler comes in a texture that displays some white stars against a black felt background.
Since the HAVANA Bowler and the Beach Flowers Shirt look great together, we decided to offer them not only as individual items, but also in a discount pack. Sounds good? So, go check them at the HAVANA store at The Gayborhood! (For now, it is only available there; soon we will offer them at the other stores, too).
– HAVANA Beach Flowers Shirt (with flexi prims): L$ 175
– HAVANA Bowler Hat: L$ 175
– HAVANA Beach Flowers Shirt + HAVANA Bowler Hat (discount pack): L$ 275
You can find them at:
– HAVANA at The Gayborhood (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Gayborhood%20Island/232/128/23)
As part of our continuous work to offer our customers different options in the male fashion market in Second Life, HAVANA joined an innovative initiative that took off today, Feb. 1st. It is called A New Man Hunt. It is not a traditional hunt. Instead, it is a system that rewards the customers of the stores taking part in this gridwide event: each store has at least two products involved – you buy one of them and get the other one for free. And this is what the HAVANA boys prepared for you:
Different, right? Yes, for this hunt HAVANA is offering a brand new creation, the Beach Flowers Shirt. It is an open shirt with sculpted collar and flex prim bottom – actually, our first product of this kind. Unlike most of the prim ending shirts out there, we decided to add not a couple of big flex prims to its base, but a larger number of thinner prims, designed to respond better to movement and wind. In other words: we tried to make the shirt “wave” more freely. We hope you like the result. The flex prims are adjustable and, though they come with mod permissions, they are also scripted, so it’s easier to change their size, length, etc.
In order to get the shirt for free, one can buy another new creation of ours: the HAVANA Bowler. It is inspired by the traditional black bowlers, which are always elegant, but with a different touch: the stars appearing on its left side. Actually, it goes very well with the Beach Flowers Shirt.
As for the New Man Hunt, it works like this: it uses a new system by Miro Collas called “Take your Pick”. Whenever someone buys an item involved in the hunt, they also receive a hud ticket called either “A New Man – Hunt Card/HUD” or “Take You Pick – Hunt Card/HUD”. Each participating store has a validation device. HAVANA’s is at our store at The Gayborhood. Every ticket has to be validated at all the stores before a prize is redeemed at the end. In order to claim their prizes, after validating the tickets, one should go to Animations Rising. The more items one buys, the more prizes they can claim. The hunt runs for the whole month of February 2010. Further information on the system, the participating stores and the prizes can be found on the A New Man Gridwide Hunt blog (http://anewmansl.blogspot.com/).
– HAVANA Beach Flowers Shirt (with sculpted collar and flex prim ending): temporarily offered as a gift for the New Man Hunt.
– HAVANA Bowler: L$ 175 (it comes with the hud ticket to claim your gift).
