A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts and Sales Room Finds for Men, originally blogged [HERE]
There are some terrific men’s clothes out on the grid for a limited time right now so I’d advise you to get right down to both the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and 69 Park Ave GQ to get ‘em while they’re there. This round of the Cosmopolitan Sales Room has a couple of super-cool men’s jackets for sale for just $70L until June 8th. The one I’m showing here is the Binboa jacket in copper with shirt and tie from GioMen on sale for just $70L. It’s all one mesh piece but comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the shirt and the tie separately to any one of 5 colors. That means you’ve got 25 color combination options with your copper colored jacket. You can wear this with just about any pants you have in your wardrobe, but don’t forget the free stuff that the Lindens gave you in your inventory Library. The black Musician Male jeans are one of my library favorites even though they’ve got a little rip in them.
The slip-on black leather shoes are the current group gift at sf Designs. There’s a small group joining fee but it’s worth every penny because the group gifts change monthly and everything owner Swafette Firefly makes is high quality.
69 Park Ave GQ always has great group gifts and the group costs just $50L to join. Group gifts change over on Fridays, and this week there are two free men’s gifts plus a $100L gift certificate available through June 5. That’s right, you get twice the group joining fee back as a gift certificate which is a fabulous deal – just look for the information board near the back of the store. This week’s Red Pearl tuxedo is actually several outfits in one because you get both a short and a long tuxedo jacket, or can wear the vest and shirt without a jacket as I’m showing you in the pictures here. And this is the perfect time to pick up formal wear with a red tie and vest – you’ll need it next winter for the holidays and Valentine’s day.
The second group gift this week at 69 Park Ave GQ is a set of four board shorts just in time for the summer beach season. These shorts are mesh and come with a color change HUD. Hud controlled mesh is one of the great recent improvements on SL because now you can change your outfit without having to actually swap clothing layers or prim parts while worrying about showing … erm … anything private.
And before I finish, let me mention the dreamy blue eyes I’m wearing in these pictures. They are the Deep Sky mesh eyes from Mayfly available for free at the FabFree Station. The package there contains both mesh and regular eyes in four different sizes.
