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:

In the wake of the positive feedback we have been having on our gift for the Make Him Over Hunt 4, HAVANA finally releases the commercial version of its Andy Outfit, with more options for you to play with. In its new version, all the pieces of the Andy Outfit – vest, t-shirt, pants and undies – are sold separately and in different colors, so you can combine them as you wish. Nonetheless, if you would like a suggestion on how to put them together, you can check our packs at discounted prices. As previously stated, the outfit was inspired by a great friend of HAVANA, model Andreas Barrowstone, whom you can see on the pics here.
To start with, the Andy Vest comes in three different colors: red, blue and green, all of them with floral details. It can be combined with the Andy T-Shirt, with its four color options – white, light blue, pink and black – with optional bunched prim sleeves.

The anxiously awaited Make Him Over Hunt 4 (Sep. 20 – Oct. 20) has started in Second Life and HAVANA is pleased to present its gift for the participants. It’s a special edition of our new Andy Outfit, which will very soon be released in its commercial version.
The Andy Outfit was inspired by a great friend of ours, model Andreas Barrowstone. It is made of low-rise pants that allow one to show part of their undies (but just the very top of it, insinuating more than it really exposes), a basic T-shirt with some nice detail on the front part and a beautiful vest with floral motifs that enhance that casual ensemble, giving it a touch of class.
The special edition given as a hunt gift combines grey pants and undies in one layer, along with the white T-shirt and the red vest. It is very practical for the SL resident: just 2 double clicks and one is dressed. Coming soon, the commercial version will allow one to choose from different colors of each item and combine them as they want.
In order to get your prize, please visit the HAVANA casual clothes department at HAVANA On The Docks (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Havana%20Docks/234/191/23). And here is our hint to find out where the gift is: “Who could tell what gift one could see under the glow of the east?” Do not forget: look for a male symbol – ♂ – and click on it to get your prize.

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:

The Make Him Over Hunt (April 1st – April 30) has started in Second Life and we are proud to present our gift for its 3rd edition: the Keitash Outfit.
I owe the idea for this outfit to my great friend Takeshi Ugajin. When I was preparing for the hunt, I asked him what he would like to see by HAVANA and he came up with this suggestion: a tank top in white and red that could be worn with a cardigan in dark grey. I worked on it for a while and came up with the items you can see on this post. The Keitash cardigan comes on the jacket layer, with optional prim sleeves. The Keitash tank comes on the shirt layer, with the lower part on the underwear layer. Additionally, I added both together to a single piece on the jacket layer, for your convenience. Keebs and I hope you all enjoy it!
In order to get your prize, please visit the HAVANA store at The Gayborhood (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Gayborhood%20Island/233/128/23). Do you need a hint to find out where the gift is? “Look, up there, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a frog…a frog? No, it’s the HAVANA Gift!” For the complete list of stores and hints, check this post on the Make Him Over blog.
Enjoy the hunt!
It is true that Havana is still “young” (and fresh, I hope), but we have already had many people visiting and buying, many people helping us build a successful story, giving us feedback, telling their friends about us, supporting our efforts… In short, our customers and friends have been amazing to us. Thinking of them and of our future visitors, we decided to offer a new freebie to all: the Havana Rugby Shirt.
The Rugby Shirt comes in jacket and shirt layers, to increase “wearability”. It is delivered for free to all those who join our Subscribe-O-Matic group. For those who don’t know the Subscribe-O-Matic system, let me say: it works in a different way from the traditional Second Life groups. It is a message system that works in SL but which is hosted somewhere else. For that reason, it doesn’t occupy space on your SL group list and still allows you to be informed of new releases and events of your favorite stores, clubs and so on. We use it as a way to be in touch with the Havana customers and friends. If you want to join, just look for the subscribing board in our stores – and get your freebie. The ones who are already on Havana’s ‘Subscribo’ group will receive the Rugby Shirt automatically – no need to do anything other than accept the gift.
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.
